Sausage pizza was hot and tasty. Medium deep dish was plenty for two people. Service was quick and friendly. Wait staff kept my iced tea filled at all times. I really enjoyed my dinner.

So the GF pizza was baaaad! Worst crust ever. Tasted like rice flour only-crust could break your teeth! Don’t they know there are awesome GF blends? No flavor in the sauce either - should have had a salad.
