I used to love to come to this place. They took such care to avoid contamination. However the new owner literally told me celiac was my problem and the franchises don't have to take any precautions to keep contamination down. He then asked if I ever got sick there before as if questioning my illness! "Yes even when they took precautions I did get sick on occasion tracing it back to an employee who's uniform was covered in flour and flour in the tomatoes. But the older owners made it right." I am now boycotting Nick and Willys, I don't need that kind of treatment!

Really good GF BBQ chicken pizza. Had side salad too. Very good but did not like their choice for salad dressings by Ken -- too much garbage in it & their credo says only the best.

The service here is great! They know how to make a tasty GF pizza while taking the precautions necessary so someone with Celiac won't get sick. All but 2 items on their menu can be made GF. We were especially happy to have a dessert pizza! (They sprinkle oats on top, but just left them off for us.)

Came in from out of town, saw the reviews and gave it a try. Very good GF crust, it had good flavor and they cooked it well. Would highly recommend it.

Great service, and great tasting pizza. It's worth clarifying whether or not you have an actual allergy or not - I said that I had celiac, and they pulled out all the stops (clean pan, clean utensils, parchment paper on the pan, top shelf in the oven, pulled toppings from a non-contaminated bin). I got the Garden Veggie pizza, which was full of veggies and really tasty. The staff was really friendly and wanted to know how I found out about their gluten free options. Especially on a long road trip, this place is a life-saver!

It seems silly to say I'm afraid of ordering pizza out at restaurants - especially when I'm traveling on vacation- but it's true! I called ahead and confirmed that this restaurant uses a separate prep area - separate ingredients - and parchment paper in the oven and yeeeeaaaaahhhhhhh! Yummy pizza that didn't make my sensitive celiac guts cry out in pain for eating it!!!! I'm sooooo thankful for the others who reviewed this place and gave me the confidence to try it!

Driving thru town & hungry for pizza - great gf pizza!! Actually might be the best gf pizza I've eaten & I've had a lot. I was hesitant to try when I saw it was just a small location in a shopping center but it more than surpassed my expectations! Customer service was exceptional!! Now I'm just disappointed that it's about 1000 miles from home. :)

This is really the only place we know for sure is safe. They have a separate area to prepare food. They use parchment paper is the grill. We have been going here for years without problem.

I think their gluten free pizza crusty is better than just about everywhere I've had a gluten free pizza crust. Really like the flavor of the crust! Great topping options too.

Pizza is fine and service is good but the next day, I felt like.....yeah, not good. My pizza was run through the same oven as other non gf items and there is flour on many surfaces. Hard to avoid in a pizza place, I know.

this pizza is a great gluten free experience. many other gluten free pizzas us bean paste which leaves a film on your teeth that drives you nuts. Nick and Willies had no after taste made fresh and tastes great! The New Grist is also a good gluten free beer. Although I buy a bunch to take home.

Great GF pizza! They weren't able to make us a custom salad, which seems odd.

Bought three gluten free pizzas, two "Margheritas"and one "Garden Veggie", no mushroom. The gluten free is only offered in the medium size, and one medium is enough for two eaters. We had plenty! It was fresh and delicious, and safe to eat. Crust was soft and chewy, and not too thin nor sugary. Also bought one non-gluten free Meat Eaters pizza, and was told that was delicious, too.

A little pricey but I've never had a problem! My husband and I order 1 gluten free pre bake and it feeds us both! Just get the meat topping and add your own veggies at home to help the cost 😉

For those of us who know what gluten free pizza tasted like, this tastes just the same while being safe for us to eat! Amazing service, they really take care of you.

Love their GF pizza! It's a little pricey but it's larger than most other places GF pizzas. Would easily feed two, hungry adults!

They have my favorite gf pizza in Kenosha! They will make as many accommodations as possible to let you have any of their speciality pizzas on a gf crust. Not all of the staff knows the gf status of each topping, so you need to ask a few questions, but they are always helpful and friendly about it.

The gf pizza was ok. It wasn't like cardboard, the crust was not bad. There really wasn't any flavor or anything special however.

My S.O. Brought me here talking about the "best pizza in California" and I expected to get a salad. Wrong! They have a yummy gluten free herb crust! Joy was so accommodating and friendly! It turns out he was right, and the pizza was nomlicious! We've now made coming here a tradition when we go to either Six Flags park nearby.

Their gluten-free pizza crust is made from a coconut flour base. It's pretty decent pizza, and they can crank one out for you in a pinch. It's located inside the King Soopers grocery store so I often order my pizza, then do my grocery shopping, and then pick up the pizza on my way out.

Excellent pizza! Crisp crust and loaded with their usual creative toppings. I have learned to avoid all sausage since they only guarantee gluten free crust. Staff friendly and as helpful as high school kids can be. They simply cannot eliminate the flour in the shop, so be careful if you are super sensitive. I'm not, and have had good luck.

Worker could not have been more rude. Repeatedly went out of his way to let us know how much we were inconveniencing him to make it gluten-free. Would rather eat grass than give him my business again.

Great flavor but the crust if cross-contaminated with gluten if you have Celiac Disease.

Excellent. They have specific procedures they follow while handling their gluten free pizzas. They do a good job cleaning the oven. Usually they keep the top oven clean for gluten-free guests. I have eaten here several times and never had a reaction. If you don't want to risk it, they also have a take and bake option. They are a bit expensive, but well worth it.

I really enjoyed their pizza, it was expensive, but when I am craving pizza and I don't want to feel miserable afterwards, I am all for theirs. I would reccomend them to anyone.

Flavor of crust was pretty good. Sadly, they are big on cross contamination. I felt the ill effects shortly after leaving.

Loved the texture and taste, but I did suffer discomfort after eating the pizza. Way to much flour floating around and the staff did not even attempt to make it safe.

Love their Gluten Free pizza. Unfortunately, they are quite expensive and coupons never work for GF pizzas.

quite tasty! fast and fresh. while they took every precaution a fast food place can take, pulling ingredient from 'fresh' totes, none of the toppings contain gluten btw, wiping down the oven etc, it may not be for the super sensitive among us.

Pepperoni pineapple onion & sausage! The crust could have been a bit crunchier for my taste - but it was still a great pizza! I asked them to cook it longer for me and they did!!!!  Friendly understanding staff :)
