    The pizza was good. It's like a Chipotle, but with pizza toppings. They did a glove change and used the sauce from the other end of the bar. The pizza is on paper, so when it goes in the oven, it's not sitting where other flour crusts have been. When they remove it, they use a different pizza cutter to cut the pizza. All in all, they took good safeguard. It's a pizza place though, and no separate prep area it oven, so not celiac safe. I thought it was flavorful and would go back.

    This was hands-down my favorite pizza of our road trip! They used separate methods and equipment for my pizza and it was bursting with flavor.

    I have Celiac and was terrified to eat at a pizza place. They assured me they have a different dough press and area in the oven, and knew what toppings I couldn't have. I've successfully eaten there 3 times and felt great! My new favorite place :)

    Best GF pizza I have found. Workers very knowledgeable. Asked if needed glove change, special press for crust on special cooking sheet, even a separate pizza cutter at the end. Great toppings, many choices. Highly recommend.

    Celiacs BEWARE- their "gluten free" crust is NOT gluten free. It's made on the same press, on the same surfaces, and in the same ovens as all the other pizzas. There's nothing to separate the GF pizzas from the wheat pizzas. They fully disclose this on their menus, but they are very irresponsible in calling their product "gluten free". Celiacs can not eat here.

    Build your own pizza. You go through the line and tell them what you want on the pizza, as much as you want. Gluten free crust for $3 extra. Will change gloves. Made in the same space as other pizzas, though they do seem to be careful to use separate utensils.

    Unimpressed. The crust was soggy and it was really awkward waiting for them to actually get the crust. Celiacs beware! They bake the pizza right where they bake everything else.

    I went there a couple months ago. I had to talk quite a bit to them to get the "double" allergy prep approach (not using the additional items from the bins, but getting containers from below for pepperoni, etc), and still a little of the edge of the crust touched things it shouldn't have. I would have liked it if they wiped all the counters beforehand, and THEN gotten the containers from below for my additions. ...at least they had clean gloves... Nonetheless I avoid both gluten and dairy, I tolerated the pizza very well. I bet if you went first thing when they opened, and got the pizza a bit undercooked to warm up that evening, it would be much more GF.

    Server asked if I was GF because of preference or allergy. When told, "Allergy," she said all would change their gloves. One server said she would change gloves and follow my order the way down the line. She did. I watched the oven person put my order on a special platter and use a separate paddle. When cooked, the last server change gloves, use a designated cutter, stored in a separate bin, to cut my pie. Was very pleased!! Then I went to the Nordstom ebar for my gluten-free cookie and Mexican mocha!

    Not safe for celiacs! Let me say, it's a great pizza place. The food is good and is prepared very quickly, but it is NOT celiac friendly because they put all the pizzas in the same oven and there are crumbs and flour all over the place. They prepare the dough separately and have a separate pot of sauce, but I didn't trust that assembly line not to get any cross contamination either.

    I always have a great experience here. They ask if you are gluten free for allergy or preference. If you say allergy they change gloves and have 1 worker dedicated to your pizza. They use separate utensils and a separate prep are. I have celiac disease and am very sensitive and I have never had a problem!

    I have eaten here twice and have not had any adverse effects. Staff change gloves and seem to understand basic precautions. I will say there are inconsistencies between both visits with the precautions taken by staff. If you have a mild-moderate sensitivity you should be fine otherwise I would not suggest eating here. Lots of GF options with a GF crust that tastes decent and lots of toppings to choose from. Cream sauce and meatballs are not safe. $3 up charge for the gluten free crust.

    This place is not gluten free! They offer a gluten free crust but there is a serious amount of cross contamination going on from the utensils to the oven, not to mention the sheer amount of flour flying around. If you have celiacs, steer clear!

    When they first opened we loved It. They had gluten, dairy and soy free options and were great in preparing the food. Unfortunately, as they have gotten busier and added more staff all that has changed. We are a celiac family and all of us have gotten sick the last two times we were there. We no longer go there and I would not recommend it any longer.

    This place is relatively cheap (they do add $3 for gluten free) and quick. They also attempt to avoid cross contamination. But the gluten free crust is paper thin and virtually tasteless. I am usually hungry a few hours later. If you're in the area and desperate, go for it. Otherwise, I would say avoid it.

    For the $3 up charge and unlimited toppings, definitely the best gf value around but most importantly, the BEST tasting pizza I've had in the country. You will NOT be disappointed! Ask them to cook a bit longer so it's crispy throughout and they are awesome about keeping it a safe dining experience.

    Highly recommend! The minute I said I wanted the gluten free crust, the employee asked if I'd like a glove change, marked it in big bold letters, and they make their own GF dough on a dedicated press, with a special liner so it doesn't get contaminated in the oven. The only trouble spot I noticed MIGHT be an issue, was they didn't have a dedicated pizza cutter for GF pizza (but the guy doing the cutting also changed his gloves as soon as he saw the note on my order). So I would watch for that, and I'm sure they would wash one or give you a clean one. They were VERY Celiac friendly, and considering the price is only about $10-$12 (about on par with Chipotle, and much more cooperative and understanding in my opinion), I was very, very impressed with knowledge and controls put in place.

    Definitely NOT celiac safe. Great option if you choose gf for lifestyle reason but really unsafe for celiac. They think they understand the disease and gf and they make some accommodations like hanging their gloves but there are common prep areas, the food toppings are touched by multiple gloved hands so all of the bins end up contaminated and the final prep area is messy. If you are celiac and sensitive there is too big of a chance of cross contamination.

    They have a very thin crust "floppy"GF pizza. Furthermore they have several yummy FRESH toppings. It was good enough to eat again. :-) They cannot guarantee cross contamination, However, they make major efforts by changing gloves, prepping in different area etc... Prices aprox. $7-10 / GF pizzas take longer than their "3 minute bake time" claim to fame statement ... The place was clean & staff was very friendly , attentive & observant. The only thing I'd suggest is wiping the walls next to tables better ---it seemed to be an issue as I scanned for cleanliness down the entire restaurant wall... Someone also mentioned they're out of GF dough many times . I'd definitely dine there again...

    They asked if my GF diet was by choice or allergy. I told them it was an allergy. They all looked at each other like I was a pain in the butt. My family eats GF with me so they had to make more than one pizza. The crust was paper thin! We were so hungry after our meal that we went to Z Pizza immediately afterward and had a GF pizza & GF cookies.
