This is thick crust and doughy pizza. It is fine filler and a fun atmosphere. We stopped in for lunch so my friend could remember her college days in Columbia. Sorry, but not the best pizza ever or even best in Missouri. Maybe I would...More

Yes they do have a gluten free option. They only have a 12" crust available and it's not a crust they produce within their kitchen.
