Gluten Free at Maria’s Italian Eatery

I spend a lot of time in the North Carolina mountains and always struggle with where to eat during these road trips. Recently I was on my way back from Asheville (where there are TONS of gluten free options) and used my trusted Find Me Gluten Free app to see other options along Interstate 40. One suggestion in Morganton, NC was Maria’s Italian Eatery. It had good reviews posted on the app, so I figured I’d give it a shot, and I’m so glad I did!

Maria’s reminds me a lot of a pizza chain called CiCi’s Pizza where we used to eat a lot when I was little. They have appetizers, salads, subs, calzones, special order pizzas, pasta, and an extensive pizza buffet. Maria’s does not have a gluten free menu, but they do offer 8″, 10″, 12″, and 14″ gluten free crust pizzas at an additional cost of $2.00. We ordered the 14″ Deluxe pizza which typically includes pepperoni, Italian sausage, beef, ham, bacon, onion, mushroom, green pepper, and black and green olives. I’m a meat lover, but I don’t like onions, mushrooms, green peppers, or olives so I asked that they leave those off.

The pizza was excellent. It was piled very high with toppings, and easily rivals the pizza at Mellow Mushroom which is my favorite pizza chain.

I highly recommend you check out Maria’s Italian Eatery for their gluten free pizza if you’re ever in the Morganton, NC area!
