Ma Uno's Now Have gluten-free Pizza!

Recommended Posts

Uno's Pizzeria has finally delivered on their long awaited gluten-free pizza. I got an e-mail from them (see below) last week telling me that cheese and pepperoni gluten-free pizza is now on their gluten-free menu. My DD tried one on Saturday and loved it. Note that the e-mail states that these are only test items and won't necessarily be added to their standard menu. Perhaps a few e-mails would help to convince them!!

GLUTEN-FREE PIZZA IS HERE!

You told us you wanted a gluten-free pizza and we are thrilled to tell you,

Uno Chicago Grill

i noticed pizza is now listed on Uno's gluten-free online menu so i emailed them to confirm the locations it's available at - because after seeing it advertised on their menu i was curious if it had been rolled out nationwide already. this is the response i got:

We are testing this gluten free pizza in a limited area. We need to

make sure that the pizza is well received by our customers, that all

precautions are taken by our staff to prevent cross contamination. So

far the test is going very well and we hope to introduce the pizza in

the rest of our restaurants by the beginning of next year.

I just wanted to say that yesterday I hit the Uno's in Revere, MA on my way to the Celtics game (cause unfortunately Marco's is closed on Monday so I had to eat something before the game) and tried the gluten-free pizza. It was really really good. The dough was a big soggy/uncooked in places (possibly the grease/cheese mushing it more than it usually would be), but overall the cheese/sauce/dough blended nicely and had a real authenticate pizza taste to it. I was very impressed, so I hope the pizza gets good reviews by others and is there to stay :-) Hopefully other chain restaurants take note and start to make gluten-free versions of other popular dishes besides the typical steak/ribs/chicken/seafood choices we are mostly limited to now at places.

I too had the gluten-free pizza at the Uno's in Harvard Square yesterday. I didn't set my expectations too high as I've been let down many times before from lousy pizza crusts in the past. However, I was extremely pleased and impressed for being able to eat pizza in a chain restaurant!

The crust was thin and light with crispy edges, but perhaps just slightly underdone in the middle - could have remained in the oven for an extra 3-5 min. The crust didn't fall apart (I was able to fold the slices in half) and wasn't over-sauced. Generous portion too with zero cardboard taste! Now all they need to do is stock gluten-free brew! Highly recommended as a mainstream option!!!

I made a road trip to Concord NH and had the Gluten Free Pepperoni pizza on Saturday

I couldn't stop grinning the whole time....I was at a pizza place - eating a not-salad!

I thought it was pretty good, though they could have put more sauce on it (I am a sauce fiend)

It was so nice to be able to sit and watch (and smell) my spouse eating a deep dish Uno and NOT feel jealousy! I had my very own pie AND I ATE IT ALL! I left stuffed and licking my fingers.

So now it's 3 days later and I am pleased to report that I was definitely not glutened!

Good Job Uno's! They used to be my favorite place before I went gluten-free....and now they are back on my list!

This is fantabulous!!!!! I went to Flatbread Pizza because i wanted pizza and beer (they have Redbridge there...gluten-free). Wasn't a fan to be honest with you. Although I'm not setting my sites too high on Uno's.....I'm just excited that I have another menu option there now!!!

I ate at the Uno's in Plymouth on 12/27/08 and did not get sick.

I had a side salad and the pepperoni pizza and loved my meal!

The pizza is as big as a huge dinner plate and I was quite full afterwards.

The servers found the menu immediately and knew about celiac disease and gluten-free food!

I'm very impressed!

i read it's coming to upstate NY (Albany/Saratoga area) in "early 2009" so maybe there's hope it'll extend south to LI too!

i'm going to Uno's in Burlington VT on Friday to try it...i'm so excited!

I had my birthday dinner last night at the Revere, MA Uno's and did not get sick.

The cheese is very yummy, the crust is thin and has a good flavor and the outside crust is a bit crunchy. The sauce is pretty good, almost close to the homemade marinara I put on my gluten-free pizza at home. I just use more garlic and herbs.

The salad at the Plymouth location was better, but I won't complain too much.

I guess the pizza is close to a well made Domino's thin crust cheese pizza with light sauce. At least this is what I remember them tasting like 4 years ago! :P

I'm liking the Uno's a lot. Two safe meals so far and my boyfriend has a huge menu to choose from (he can eat gluten), so he won't get too bored when I want to eat out!

ok, i just got back from Uno's in Burlington VT. we had to take a ferry from NY (which cost my boyfriend and i $25) to get to VT so once it was all said and done, including the meal, the entire trip cost us about $50.

i think i set my expectations too high for this pizza. don't get me wrong...it was definitely good but there are a few things i'd like to see done differently.

the pizza itself is pretty large for a personal size but the crust is thin so i didn't have a problem eating the whole thing myself. the rice crust was cooked perfectly but it seems to absorb most of the sauce so as a whole the pizza was a bit dry. i thought there could also be a lot more cheese so i'd probably ask for more sauce and cheese next time. (not sure if the pizza are pre-assembled/frozen or not so this might not be a possibility?)

overall i give the pizza an 8 out of 10. it was certainly edible and would be fantastic with a few minor changes. i hope they expand the availability to the rest of the country soon so everyone else can try it!! i'm going to email Uno's and let them know what i thought and i'll see what they have to say about expanding the pizza to other areas. i'll post their reply, if i get one.

Do you have an email for this Kathy from Uno?

One of the biggest things about eating gluten free is having a tough time stopping for quick bite to eat. We love Mexican food and that does the trick but it would be great to have some variety.

Right before Christmas, the bar tender had told my husband and I that they were expanding their gluten-free menu "spring of 09." He said that could mean either "february or may of 2009, but it will be getting better." This same bar tender even said that he'd rather have the gluten-free pizza instead of one of their other flatbread pizzas. I seriously go there at least once a month as my "treat" to get 2 pizza's with hope that I have left overs the next day. Between my husband and I, there never is any left overs! Now I just need to hunt down Redbridge beer so I can have beer and pizza :D

Just got this email from Uno's Customer Service. I asked her specifically about the NY area, but it seems like they'll be everywhere next week. Sweet!

----------

Thank you for taking the time to inquire about our gluten-free pizza.

Our plan is to roll them out to all our restaurants on Tuesday, January

13, 2009. We are currently in the process of training our employees. I

hope you will stop by to enjoy one.

Regards,

Where in MA do you live Jami? I live in Seabrook, NH and all the grocery stores up here carry Redbridge now including of all places Wal-Mart. I drink hard liquor mostly so beer isn't a must or anything, but you'd be hard pressed to find my fridge without Redbridge in it lol, the stuff is so good, I honestly like it better than some of the beers I used to drink and that's no joke. Anyways, you can also look on the Redbridge site and they have a list of places in your area that carry it, although I found a few times for this not to be true. I think all the Kappy Liquors carry it from past experience in MA and there was a liquor store in Rowley that had it so I think it's pretty popular at least on the North Shore.

Checked with the Maple Shade, NJ Uno Grill (outside Philly) and a manager confirmed that they will start serving gluten-free pizza on Tuesday January 13, 2009.

I got lunch from the Uno's in Ellicott City, Maryland today and tried the cheese pizza. It was carry out so I asked the manager how I could be sure I had the right thing. He said that the manager supervises every gluten-free pizza being made and told me how they use designated utensils, etc. The gluten-free pizza is round whereas the flatbread pizza is more oval shaped.

The flavor was definitely good. The crust was a bit flaky and didn't want to stay together too well, but that was ok. I was eating a pizza that I didn't have to make! I will definitely have it again.
