Delightfully Gluten Free (TM)

Uno’s Chicago Grill

Have you heard the news?  Uno’s Chicago Grill restaurants are now serving gluten-free pizza (in most locations).  And it is good.

North Texas GIG had a fun night out, with 60 in attendance (and a number of families turned down).  The majority of us had one thing on our minds when we sat down – pizza.  According to their gluten-free menu, you can get a cheese pizza or a pepperoni pizza.

After some intense interrogation, Betty found out that she could get roasted veggies on her pizza.  Judith, at another table, also interrogated the waiter and manager and found she could have canadian bacon and pineapple.  I tried both (and my pepperoni that I split with Kitty), and the were all really good.

Our manager (at the downtown Fort Worth location – the only Uno’s in Texas), told us that the thin crust is a rice and soy-based crust (which we could not tell from the taste).  It is made by Uno’s and shipped to the locations, individually wrapped and on its own foil.  The management and cooks were taking special care with all gluten-free orders.

For those of you who drink, the Fort Worth location had Redbridge beer, though I don’t know if that is a universal product.

I’m already planning my next trip to Uno’s.  My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks.  🙂

Check out some pictures.  Also, view this video from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.  One of our members works for the newspaper, and was there to film this little video for their website.

Some of you may have seen me reference my Tahoe that I bought this summer from a neighbor.  Well, tonight, I realized, was the first time I ever drove it into a parking garage.  I was so freaked out the whole time.  When I parked and got out, I noticed I barely had a foot of clearance!  That’s my freaky-funny story for today.  I just needed to share.  🙂

So, go try out Uno’s.  I hope you have as nice an experience as I did.

    NO WAY!!! That makes me so happy! 🙂 There’s a local pizza place that has GF pizza and I love it, but Uno’s is closer and cheaper. LOL! I’ll have to check and see if ours has it, and Redbridge as well. Thanks!

    Kati and I just had it yesterday! My only issue is there is potato starch in the crust and I’m allergic to potato (get digestive issues from it). I ate it anyway! Our local one seems to be very careful about cc issues. They make all of theirs up in the morning so they can be sure of no cc and do not recommend getting anything else on them due to them worrying about cc. I heard rumors though if you called them in the morning you could request what you wanted on one if you were coming in later. I did not think ahead to do that so I just ate it as is. It was so exciting though!

    I’d kill for some pizza right now, but alas I am thousands of miles away from the nearest Uno’s. My brother went to one in Rhode Island though and agrees that the GF pizza is tasty.

    I’ve been to two pizza places since my diagnosis several years ago and even when the pizza isn’t terrific, isn’t it great mentally to be able to sit down and order pizza and beer just like everyone else?

    And how did the pricing compare for a pepperoni to the other rates for a ‘regular’ pepperoni pizza?
