The Best Gluten-Free Pizza in Houston, Mapped

Among the food options that some gluten-free eaters miss the most is pizza. Thankfully, several local pizzerias have caught on to the growing number of folks who abstain from eating anything with gluten, whether it's an allergy or not. The bad part? Several of these places have to charge an additional fee for this crust, and the saucers are sometimes limited to smaller sizes, often personalized pies only. That's because while many restaurants on this map make their dough in-house, the gluten-free mix is often pre-made and ordered from a supplier. That doesn't mean that these are any less delicious, or the toppings any less diverse. So get your pizza fix, non-gluten eaters. As always, if there's a glaring omission, hit the tipline or comment here with place we might have missed.

Jupiter Pizza & Waffles Co.

Your gluten-consuming friends will enjoy the extensive selection of craft beer on tap here. As for you, crust can be made with the 99.5-percent gluten-free dough at a $4 upcharge on the 10" small pizza and at a $6 upcharge for the 15-inch. It's not far from its sister establishment to Guru Burgers in Sugar Land.

Top It Pizza

Copy Link
An extra two bucks ensures a customized gluten-free pie here. The rest of the pizza is designed by you, element by element, from the sauce (everything form barbecue to hummus) to the cheese and toppings.
The gluten-free pies are an additional $4 and only come in the 12" size. Like many of the places on the map, they don't make that dough in-house, but they do also offer a gluten-free pasta. Plus, the wine dispenser system makes dining with a group pretty fun.

Ruggles Green

Copy Link
Apart from priding itself as the "greenest restaurant in Texas," this eatery is also happy to brag about their many gluten-free options, one of which is a delicious personalized pizza crust. All of the pizzas on the menu can be ordered with the gluten-free crust for an extra $3.

Pizza L'Vino

Copy Link
Non-gluten pizza fans will be happy to know that this pizza place from the Star Pizza owners will deliver to you. And since wine is said to be gluten-free to 20 parts per million, order a bottle with your order, since the pizzeria delivers beer and wine.

Russo's New York Pizzeria

Copy Link
This is another pizzeria that only offers the gluten-free crust in the 12" size, but at least here there is no additional charge. The crust can be requested as the base for any of the pies on the menu. The thin crust is a little crisper in this version, and the toppings are just as generously applied as they are with the traditional crust.

Pink's Pizza

Copy Link
While the Neapolitan-style pies here are baked with dough made in-house, the gluten-free option is the exception. It only comes in the 12" size and is an extra $4 per pie, but it's worth it with a wide variety of gourmet toppings and the convenience of several locations in Houston.
For $3 more than the regular crust, the gluten-free pies here only come in the small sizes. They also have plenty of vegan offerings, but opt for the pear and gorgonzola if you're a cheese eater.

Polovina Italian Cafe

Copy Link
Order the Greek with, feta and spinach; the Carl Raia with Italian sausage, artichoke hearts and fresh basil; or any of the other pizzas on the menu with a gluten-free crust at an additional charge of $3. There's also a build-your-own pizza option at $1.50 per topping.

Flakey's Pizza

Copy Link
It's your late-night stop for gluten-free pies. An extra dollar gets you the specialty crust, and they're open and deliver from 6 p.m. until 3 a.m. The truck is usually behind Super Happy Funland in the East End.

Palazzo's

BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse

Copy Link
The build-your-own-pizza option here starts with a gluten-free crust at $9.75 for the 10" saucer with cheese, every topping after that is $1 per item. It's a great gluten-free pizza destination in this suburb.
