Pizza is a vacation staple, and things have recently changed at Disney World!
In the past, the Gluten Free option was *sometimes* premade frozen Diaya or Udi’s pizza, and there was a lot of mixing and matching to meet allergy needs. Plus, while I was always thankful to find these randomly throughout the resort, there’s nothing like a good homemade pizza.
So it’s exciting to see in 2022, that Disney has rolled out a more consistent Gluten Free Pizza option (and we’ll cover all the locations and details below!)
Does Disney World have Gluten Free Pizza?
Yes, Disney World has gluten free pizza (like certified gluten free cooked in a dedicated oven) at some locations. Other options have gluten friendly pizza as the crust isn’t certified or cooked in a shared location.

What is the Pizza Crust Made with and is it certified Gluten Free?
Earlier this year (2022) Disney World rolled out a new pizza crust!
Currently, Walt Disney World has mostly switched to “Nation pizza and Food” Certified Gluten Free Cauliflower Pizza.
The pizza crust is certified Gluten Free!
It is made without dairy, soy, egg, fish/shellfish, all nuts, sesame.
May be corn free depending on your sensitivity to derivatives but no corn is listed directly. It is made in a Shared Facility with Egg and Milk.
It’s made with rice, potato, and cauliflower (plus olive oil, xanthan gum, yeast, salt, sugar, water plus preservatives).
What I love about this new crust?! It’s soft! It’s not super crunchy, but there is some crunch in the crust. It’s HUGE! We’re obsessed after 6 years of hard cardboard pizza 😂🥴
Most locations have a dedicated “turbo chef/fast oven” dealio for the AF/GF pizzas. All places have a dedicated allergy pan (make sure to ask if this is a concern!)
There is also Udi’s Pizza and Diaya Pizza Randomly depending on the resort and the supply chain needs. I’ve most commonly seen boxed frozen pizza at the Water Parks (again, depending on supply chain needs).
It’s super important to note that not all options above will always be gluten free. We learned this the hard way when we had a different brand of turkey leg that was actually *not* gluten free. You always want to check these things, and I cover this and more important details inside Gluten Free Disney World Guide.
The Best Gluten Free pizza is found at…
I’ve tried 90% of the pizzas on property and the best is at Pizzafari in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
How refreshing that one of their locations lives up to the name! But in all honesty, the pizza here is always cooked to perfection, and very consistent!
Plus they have gluten free croutons for their side salad!
Close runner up is PizzeRizzo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The pizza there is pretty consistent though not quite as crispy as I’d like it. The real winner are the toppings (like veggies and meat options) that elevate this pizza to one that you might find at a traditional gluten-full pizzeria.
Allergy Modifications to the Gluten Free Pizza
yes, friends, we can modify that pizza!
Disney also offers dairy free cheese, either diaya or follow your heart depending on supplier options at the time.
Plus you can get soy free, nut free, egg free sauces. These are not as consistent as the crust is, So *you must check* all the ingredients in real time on vacation. I have absolutely come across sauce that had nuts, and sauce that had soy. Supplier options vary!

Does Via Napoli in Disney’s EPCOT have gluten free pizza?
No, Via Napoli does not have Gluten Free Pizza. They do have Gluten Friendly Pasta, and I’d avoid this option is you have Celiac or an Allergy. Via Napoli is a Operating Participant/Third Party Operator and they have different procedures. Learn more about 3rd Party Operating Participants here.
Looking for more Gluten Free Eats at Disney World?
My family is gluten free (thanks to celiac, FPIES and intolerances), and we’ve catalogued many of the items at Disney World. (note I do lump it under “allergies” but I know celiac is similar yet different)
