OH.MY.GOD. Seriously, I might be at a loss for words. Not only does Uno Chicago Grill have a GF menu, but they have GF pizza on it!! Now, it isn’t deep dish pizza, but I’ll take any pizza at this point. Having been GF for 3+ years and not having pizza (other than what I make at home), I was VERY excited to try this. I didn’t get a picture, unfortunately. I didn’t think to bring my camera and I honestly don’t think it was around long enough for a picture. Jon & I ordered the pepperoni pizza, salad & steamed broccoli. Heaven. Simply, heaven. The pizza was on a thin crust, the flavor & texture was amazing. I was also very impressed by the knowledge of the needs of gluten-free dining. Bill, the manager, came over to our table almost immediately after we were seated and explained the process with which the pizzas were made and the lengths they go to to avoid cross-contamination. They only make the pizzas in the AM (or prepare them), so that it can be done in an area that is “sterile”. They don’t recommend adding any additional toppings as they can’t guarantee that anything from the line would be GF after the restaurant has opened. It was so nice and refreshing to dine out some place where they “get it”. I will definitely be going back, to dine-in or carry-out. This place isn’t super close to us, but is worth the drive when that pizza craving must be met! :) I am off to write a letter of “THANKS” to Uno Chicago Grill for taking the time to accommodate those of us on a GF diet and putting in the effort to make sure that we can dine safely.
So, if you have a Uno Chicago Grill close by, stop on by and give this GF pizza a try.
