I ate pizza. At a real restaurant. Honest to goodness thin crust pepperoni pizza. I am so happy. It has been 9 months since I've had restaurant pizza, and when I found out that Uno Chicago Grill was now carrying gluten free pizza in all their restaurants, I shuffled off to the nearest one, in Woodbridge, VA.
Uno's has a gluten free menu, but you won't see the pizza on it. The pizza (for now, anyway) is listed on the regular menu. You have your choice of Cheese or Pepperoni, and the pizza is 6-slice, 10", thin crust. It was delicious. The crust is flaky and crisp, but soft. It's not like a cracker crust would be.
I did ask the server about adding other ingredients to the pizza. Her response was that if I had celiac disease, I should not add any other ingredients because of the risk of cross-contamination from the shared ingredients. If you can be happy with a simple pepperoni or cheese pizza, however, this is the pie for you.
In addition to the pizza, their gluten-free menu offers steak, chicken, burgers, a variety of different sides, and both a house salad and a cobb salad. There is also a selection of smoothies and such from the bar.
Overall, my visit to Uno Chicago Grill was excellent, and I recommend it whole-heartedly.
