Hard to get a good gluten free pizza but I highly recommend theirs and I've tried many! Love the pepperoni gluten free. Regular is fine too...just not a fan of Supreme as it can be too wet.

The pizza was of the same caliber as Pizza Hut or dominos. The spinach rolls were very good. The chicken wings were breaded and then sauced. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
