    gluten free crust costs $3 extra, and though they will happily swap gloves and the pizza cutter to minimize cross-contamination, they (understandably) use the same oven. tldr: not completely gluten free, too expensive for what you're getting.

    It is not safe for celiacs. From their website: "We use the same oven and dough press for both gluten-free and standard dough, so there is a good chance of some cross-contact in our restaurants." http://www.blazepizza.com/faqs/

    Great price for amazing pizza! Doesn't even taste gluten free - yay! Just make sure you ask for a glove change and dedicated gluten free sauce.

    I was very impressed. the girl taking order and making pizza asked if gluten free was preference or allergy. she announced allergy to the staff, then changed gloves. the dough was pressed in a separate unit, put on special tray that was used for cooking on in the common oven. the sauce was from a separate covered container. once cooked, they used a separate cutter to slice it. it was the best fresh pizza I had in a while, and was impressed with the steps they took.

    Best gluten free pizza I've had, and I've tried a lot! Plenty of topping options, but there isn't a dedicated assembly or cooking area in my experience. They put the pizza on it's own cooking sheet and change their gloves, but the toppings they take from are also touched by gloves that have touched the regular pizza. You also have to watch them carefully because they are not careful about our pizza not touching other pizzas. It is not celiac friendly, but I have yet to get sick and eat here regularly.

    Great experience. Once I ordered the GF crust the immediately asked if I'd like them to change gloves. Crust is thinner than the regular pizza, but still delicious. Baked in the same oven as everything else but is on a special tray as to avoid contact.

    Husband is a celiac and the staff has always been cautious and polite. One of the managers has a family member who is a celiac and she is always very attentive. Been here several times with no issues. The staff does glove changes without an issue.

    Great experience. They used separate sauce, tools etc to make my pizza. They actually accidentally used a non Gf paddle to remove my pizza. They informed me, remade my pizza and gave me a voucher for a free pizza. I'd much rather wait longer for my food than get sick.

    Delicious pizza - loved that they immediately offered to change gloves when I ordered GF crust. Plus they had a separate container for sauce for GF to avoid cross contamination with other sauce and utensils. They also got my toppings from containers under the counter to further avoid cross contamination. Great service!

    I was really impressed by how carefully they handled my order. They asked me if I needed a glove change and from there they got me all fresh ingredients! Not only did they have a gf crust, but their sauce is soy free, which I need, too. The only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because my crust was undercooked, but I would definitely go back again!

    The chain of communication failed at first. My kid has Celiac and would need extra precautions was lost after the first person. They had to remake the pizza, but they were happy to do so. Make sure to ask that they leave the GF crust on the tray for the oven and it not get placed on the cooling rack at the end. You will also have to be clear that a new slicer is needed. Otherwise the pizzas were really delicious (both GF and regular).

    First time I ate there they were very diligent and I had no reactions. The second time I visited they tried hard to keep it safe but the cross contamination was inevitable. It was the sickest I have been in years. It was a dumb idea to eat there. It's a pizza place for heavens sake.

    If you have celiac, beware. This place is not gluten free! Yes, they have gluten free crusts, but they spread the sauce on your gf pizza with the same soon they use on regular pizza dough. Yes, they change their gloves, but they get ingredients from bins that have been contaminated with flour. I do not recommend this place if you don't want to be glutened.

    Worst experience ever at Paddock Shop location. Took 3 times for them to get the crust ready, then barely cooked the pizza. Entire family of 6 had already eaten their meal. Manager then makes me new pizza and kid starts cutting with regular cutter. 20 people working behind the line and they are untrained. I would not recommend eating there.

    BE very careful...if you have celiac this is not the place for tou. The GF crust is real BUT they throw flower into the oven to keep the pizza from sticking and rotate them around as they bake...CROSS contamination is unavoidable!

    Thanks to my favorite local gluten free baker for recommending this place for me. So this is a pieology style place but the main differences are: in store made GF crust and a very strict adherence to ensuring a minimization of cross. Staff really cool and knowledgeable about their product. I am cows milk dairy free as well as any have tomatoes on top of being very strict about being GF. They made me a great pizza. The only thing they weren't sure of was the pepperoni. But there was plenty other toppings.

    Fantastic. Crust is thin but good. Toppings are fantastic. Also quick and way cheaper than other gf pizzas. They changed gloves and warned me that at the time they did not have an extra container of the sauce I wanted- he did get a separate spoon but of course there is still a bit of contamination. But I appreciated the heads up. Will certainly be going back soon!

    Glove change and the gf dough is followed by the person who changed their gloves right in front of you, you watch them make it all the way down the line! Gf crust is great! And they give u as much toppings as you wish. They use a back part of the fire oven for gf and glove change when it comes out, use separate/special order liners for gf to show it. And separate cutting utensils for handling after! Very great control in a pizza place w/ gf dough being pressed right in front of you!

    They do have a gluten free crust and they change their gloves to get the dough. However, they do not use separate ingredients for the gluten free pizzas. My husband has celiac disease so we just took his pizza to go and gave it away. It wasn't worth the risk.

    They were very nice, but I would not recommend this place for anyone with Celiac Disease. They will change their gloves when prepping, but they don't change them on the other end of the line when they take the pizza off the GF tray and onto your plate. They also use the same knife as they used on Every Other Pizza. I went without my Celiac daughter to check the place out and I will not be back.

    I was sad when zpizza closed...but then I found this place. I was pleasantly surprised when I ordered a gluten free pizza and saw them take out actual gluten free pizza dough! No shells here! They have a press they use when flattening out the dough, and they cleaned it thoroughly before using it. The staff all changed their gloves when informed of a gluten allergy, used dedicated utensils, and everyone was very knowledgeable about which ingredients and toppings were GF. But best of all, the pizza was SO GOOD. Instead of using one of those conveyor belt ovens like Pie Five or zpizza would use, they use a real oven (flames and all), and you can taste the difference. This might be one of the best GF pizzas I've ever had.

    I had a different experience than Krysta. I did get the GF crust - they changed gloves and used a separate (non-contaminated) container and spoon to put on the marinara. I'm giving it 4 stars bc I didn't get sick - but I personally didn't like the pizza crust and neither did my 2 other friends who got non-GF. The crust was just really chewy (for both).

    No clue about gf at all. Discussed the gf options and the server was happy to change gloves so I thought great, then he went to use a tray that clearly had normal flour from previous on it, I asked them to change to a clean one which they did and then he sprinkled it with normal flour!! Another member of staff told him he couldn't put flour on the base but by then it was too late, I decided to leave. This was one of the only options for food open late at night but I'd rather go without than get poisoned. I couldn't leave 0 stars!!

    We've eaten here a number of times and have never had a problem. There is a possibility of contamination because they do share equipment, but they do clean the lower plate of the press before making GF crust. They normally have one person walk my pizza the entire way with fresh gloves. The pizza is made on a special liner so it doesn't touch shared surfaces. There is also a special bin for GF pizza sauce that is not contaminated. Three of us are GF in our family, my daughter will throw up if ingested gluten, we've not had any problems. Communication is key and don't be afraid to speak into any concerns you have.

    The gluten free crust is good. I suggest you remind to use sauce near veggie bins as some aren't quite trained. And remind oven attendant that gfree crust takes a bit longer to cook. I have eaten here several times and haven't gotten sick but I also watch them every step of the way and have them remake if the aren't careful.
