Yep, you read that right -- Uncle Maddio's now has gluten-free pizza in our kids' meals! Up until now, our awesomely delicious, thin and crispy gluten-free crust has been available only in a 9" pie. Now you can have it as a smaller 6" pizza in our combos and in kids' meals! Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint is the only restaurant in the nation to offer gluten-free pizza in kids' meals. Our gluten-free dough is made from a combination of rice, tapioca, and potato flours. Oh, and if you're looking for gluten-free ingredients to top your crust, we have more than 25 of them (see below).
At Uncle Maddio’s, we take special precautions to ensure that our crust is safer for people with gluten allergies. In order to prevent cross-contamination, our pizza makers take special steps when preparing and serving gluten-free pizza, including: putting on new gloves; using separate pans and utensils; and pulling toppings from fresh bins (when asked). The Uncle Maddio’s restaurant design allows you to watch your pizza being prepared directly in front of you, which means that if you have food allergies, you can make sure your order is accurate and safe.
Here's what our blogger friends have to say about gluten free at Uncle Maddio's:

"I can't tell you how excited I was to learn about Uncle Maddio's,” said Stewart. “Going out for pizza as a family was always such a hassle because we had to bring our own food. Now we can all eat pizza together and feel safe knowing that he is getting a great pizza that’s gluten- and allergen-free.
