Uno’s Gluten-Free Pizza Review
“I’ll have the gluten-free pizza.” It is wonderful to go to a restaurant and be able to say those words. I went to Uno’s Chicago Bar & Grill last evening with my husband and youngest son, and I said those words for the first time.
The 10 inch thin crust pizza came served on a plate. My first attempt to pick up a slice resulted in a piece of crust breaking off. My impression of the first several bites was that it tasted doughy, even though it didn’t feel doughy. That taste seemed to go away, but maybe I just got used to it.
The crust is very thin and rather plain. It reminded me of a saltine cracker but not that salty or dry. The sauce was pretty good. I ordered a plain cheese pizza. There was an adequate amount of cheese, but not a lot.
My husband and son, who both eat gluten, tried a bite of the pizza and a piece of the outer crust. They were not impressed. In fact, both immediately said that I should either sell my pizza crust to a restaurant or open my own restaurant.
The bottom line is that in our opinion, gluten-free pizza can taste much better and does at our house. However, the pizza wasn’t bad. I did eat it. The thing I liked most was the experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to order gluten-free pizza at a restaurant. I’m grateful for that opportunity, and I know that many people greatly enjoy the gluten-free pizza at Uno’s. Thank you Uno’s for how you are serving the gluten-free community!

If your pizza is that much better than theirs, though, I am definitely going to have to find your recipe. I'm really craving a Hawaiian or a veggie lover's or something. Yum.
I linked to my recipe in the post or you can find it in the recipe index under main dishes.
Mine is a thicker crust which we prefer, but it can be stretched to make more pizza with a thinner crust.
I don't dislike thin crust pizza altogether, so that's not the thinking behind my review.
I missed being able to go and get a pizza because I don't want to cook, and just veg out with it like a "normal" girl. Without the hassel of making it myself.
Plus, at ZPizza I was allowed to get lot's of different toppings. I had spinach, red onion, and mushrooms.
The last piece was good left over today. Or maybe I just really wanted it to be. : )
I like your site. Thanks for sharing.
As someone who doesn't do well with gluten but loves pizza, I think it's great that more places are offering gluten free options. I just recently found out about Uno's gluten free pizza and tried it for the first time last week. Overall, I was impressed! Here's my in depth review of it.
