Gluten Free Review: Uncle Maddio’s Pizza

As you know, Pookah is allergic to wheat. And I am always on the hunt for new places that he can eat.  Thanks to Tara over at The Young Mommy Life, I discovered an app called Find Me Gluten Free.   I put in my address and Uncle Maddio’s popped up.  I checked out their website and was happy to discover that they had GLUTEN FREE Pizza crust.

Now, we’ve tried another local pizza place that has gluten-free crust.  And it’s….nasty….imagine, your pizza crust with the consistency of cornbread…..

But I digress!  We traveled to Uncle Maddio’s 10 minutes from our house and walked in.

I didn’t get a photo when we first got in, but it’s laid out sort of like Subway or Chipotle. You see the fresh ingredients, you see them making your pizza. On a GLUTEN FREE crust. Pookah requested sweet sausage and pepperoni, and I added mushrooms to my side.

Pookah and I made our way to our table and waited for our food.  Pookah had his crayons…..

And while we were waiting, my fresh made salad came. Delicious.

And then it came.  It looked good…….( see Pookah stealing a sausage)

It was a HIT!

I really really enjoyed it and more importantly, Pookah did too! The crust was like a thin crust, nice and crunchy. It didn’t get soggy and held up pretty well under the toppings.  Service was quick and our meal was UNDER $20.

Will we go again??? OF COURSE! Pookah gives it two thumbs up!

So if you live in the Atlanta Metro Area,  check out Uncle Maddio’s! It’s going to be our go to place for Gluten Free Pizza!

Just be aware. When I asked if there Cheese had gluten in it. They said yes. So it's not a total gluten-free pizza

The cheese is fine for him, he is allergic to wheat and the cheese has no wheat! Thank you for pointing that out!

I have celiac disease and just ate at Maddio's on a trip to Atlanta. It was delicious. Just a word of warning. Like any bar set up in a restaurant, the fresh items can be contaminated with gluten from the gloved hands that handle wheat crust and then dip into the items on the bar. They may change their gloves before making my pizza but the bar itself is contaminated with gluten. I ask that the make my pizza with the reserve items under the bar that have no yet been handled on top of the bar

Saturday 30th of November 2013 I was saying before my tablet had a glitch, I asked that they use the reserves of each item that they keep under the bar. These reserves have not yet been dipped into by glutened hands. Of course nothing is full proof. But this seems to work.

It seems that your Pookah is not allergic to wheat, but is gluten intolerant, assuming he did not have a reaction to the pizza. Uncle Maddio's does have a gluten-free crust, but it is made with wheat.

Anyway, thanks for the review.

He is definitely allergic to wheat. He is tested every year for it. And if you look on Uncle Maddio's website, it does say that the gluten free dough is made from "a combination of rice, tapioca and potato flours" none which have wheat in them. That is the point of gluten free. It has NO WHEAT. But thank you for stopping by and commenting!
