    Not celiac safe. They have a sign up regarding their "glutenfreeness", indicating that equipment is shared. I walked out and went to Chipotle next door.

    I would give this place 0 stars if I could've because this place is NOT gluten free. To start, the gluten free pizza dough is stored in a dough ball in fridge, then PRESSED into a flat circle WITH THE SAME PRESS as REGULAR pizza! NO NEED to go further...this place is a CROSS CONTAMINATION nightmare. Employees were clueless, too.

    This is one my favorite gf fast food restaurants of all time. for $8, you build your own pizza with any toppings you want and as much as you want to make a pizza that is ready in just a few minutes. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about celiac and gluten free issues. They have gluten free pizza dough and dedicated pans they use along with doing glove and utensil changes when asked. All of their meat (besides meatballs) are gf as are their cheeses. Blaze Pizza is sincerely the best pizza place I have been to for gluten free options. We are usually in and out within 10 minutes. Incredibly fast and delicious!

    They have gf crust and the ingredients are naturally gf, but cross contamination is everywhere. They use the same spoon to put marinara on regular crust and spread it around then on the gf crust, same with all other ingredients. Very thin crust and it was good, but I did get sick. Won't go back.

    Website was easy to use and had gluten free items listed well. Staff changed gloves, got tomato sauce from gluten free container, pressed the crust on separate machine, and cooked it on a silicone mat so the gluten free crust didn't touch the oven surface. Also cut with gluten free pizza cutter and cutter employee changed gloves. They did a good job trying to make it as gluten free friendly as possible. With they all said, I wouldn't say it's celiac friendly from a cross contamination point of view if certain employees aren't trained as well (lots of teenagers there) and just from a flour residue flying around point of view. Three stars for effort.... And the pizza was ok but I probably wouldn't go back and only went as I was traveling and with family who picked the restaurant.

    When Blaze first opened, I was incredibly impressed with how seriously they took my allergen. That seems to have changed over time. I went in today, and first the person who was going to cut and plate my pizza took it off the baking shield (used to prevent cross contamination in the oven) and placed it on the same surface used to cut all the other pizzas. Luckily, my husband noticed him do this, and we had a manager remake it. Unfortunately, as the remade pizza came out of the oven, the pizza plater used his contaminated gloves to spread out the paper my pizza would sit on before changing his gloves to touch the actual pizza. When my husband and I confronted the guy about it, he started arguing with us and told us, "there's a sign up front that says there are risks." While I agree that there are unavoidable risks (such as with gloves touching toppings), placing the pizza on the wrong surface or not changing the gloves before touching the surface the pizza will rest on are completely avoidable risks. I ended up asking for a refund, because I wasn't about to wait for yet a third pizza with no assurance of the pizza being handled right. I am no longer willing to rate this place as celiac friendly. It used to be, and used to be fast, cheap, and delicious. Maybe it will be once again if they can properly train staff who give a damn. Certainly the owner cares, and at least one manager, but everyone else is a toss up.

    When I told them I needed a gluten free pizza the manager made the pizza herself. Didn't get sick - so all in all it was a great experience. FYI Fresh Brother's staff is trained to handle food to avoid cross contamination. It comes with a sticker across the box that says gluten free! Their gluten free wings are great too.

    Absolutely love Blaze. Gluten free pizza is cooked on a separate section of the oven, and staff always asks if you'd like them to change their gloves before handling your food. Second only to Homeslice for the best GF pizza in Chicago, super fast, reasonably priced (up charge for GF crust, mine usually amounts to around $11). I crave Blaze regularly!

    Great topping options. GF crust is pressed on separate machine. Request glove change. Sauce comes from separate container/spoon that hasn't touched the regular dough. Separate cutter at end only for GF pizza. Baked on plastic sheet to protect from other pizzas, although It IS cooked in same oven, so I suppose a very minor CC issue possible, but has never occurred for me.

    The pizza was delicious so I ate the whole thing! Unfortunately that night I had terrible GI distress which lasted into the next day. My GF crust looked different than my friends regular so I am pretty sure I got the right one. I don't know if the issue was the pizza or something else I ate as I usually don't have this much reaction if it was just cross contamination.

    There is no way on god's green earth this place is making a pizza that is safe for a celiac. Walked in to see flour dusted all over the counter next to the food prep area. Warning sign said "we can't guarantee there won't be cross contact with gluten containing ingredients." Staff was very friendly and nice, helped me pick a salad and dressing with their allergen info sheets.

    Loved it! The crust is extremely thin, but nice and crisp. Was asked if I needed gloves changed as soon as I said I needed a gf pizza. Toppings and sauces for gf pie were in a separate area and the pie was made on a separate pan. Oven was swept out prior to putting the pizza in and pizza was put way in back. VERY careful!

    Blaze Pizza in Sarasota has quickly become one of our favorites. The pizza is really good and not only do they provide GF crust but also offer many toppings to choose from that are also GF. They offer vegan and non-dairy cheese which is a must for me. The staff is very acccomodating and this is almost a weekly stop for us that fits in our budget.

    I've eaten here a few times with no adverse effects. They change gloves and put the pizza in the oven on its own paper (?) so it doesn't cross-contaminate. The crust tastes slightly like mashed potatoes, but if you load it up with ingredients, it's a tasty pizza.

    We are celiacs and this place is set up to accommodate (they have non contaminated sauce and clean pizza slicer etc) but major issues with staff knowledge. I have been there 4 times and 3 of the times I had to direct them as to where the sauce is and had to stop them from using the glutinous pizza slicer. Today they took the trouble to go through the steps but used the same spoon from the glutinous tomato sauce and dunked it into the non contaminated sauce, thereby contaminating it. I've been to other blazes that are better (ie you separate utensils etc.) You can probably eat here but poorly trained staff so go before it's super busy so you can manage them. My daughter got sick with cross-contamination this evening (spoon issue I suspect).
