For Mother’s Day we had a late lunch at Uno Chicago Grill. Even though I wasn’t thrilled with their gluten-free pizza the last time I tried it, I decided to give it a second chance. I was surprised when I saw a third option on their menu—veggie pizza. The first time I got plain cheese and thought I would try the pepperoni this time, but the veggie option sounded better.
The gluten-free veggie pizza comes with onions, mushrooms, and peppers. When I asked the waitress about the peppers, she said they use red and green peppers. I asked her to hold the green peppers, however, my pizza arrived without any peppers. It also arrived barely warm. I think they heated it and then it sat for a while while the other meals were still cooking. Being incredibly hungry, though, I didn’t bother sending the pizza back.
I found the veggies gave the pizza more flavor, making it more likeable than the cheese pizza. Unfortunately, I was more disappointed in the crust than the first time. It completely fell apart. Not only did it break vertically, but it came apart in layers horizontally (if that makes sense). It’s a good thing I was so hungry, because I didn’t really care. I just enjoyed the veggie flavors, my family, and the ease of eating out.
Happy Mother’s Day (belated) to all you wonderful moms!
