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.
Love Blaze pizza - thin crust (GF & non GF) with Vegan Cheese option.
There was quite a bit of miscommunication amongst the staff with our three GF pizzas and one rude worker so that didn't help make our first visit there very nice. The manager ended up handling our order but it was a debacle! The pizza is very good and a good size (12"). They changed gloves for us and had a designated handler. They only offer premade salads in the cooler and they were clueless about whether the dressings were GF, even the manager. Another disappointment. We chose to get a Caesar salad and they happily changed out the dressing to balsamic vinaigrette at my request. The salad had been packaged with croutons but they were in a separate section that I removed. I was ready to sit down at that point and didn't let it bother me. Pizza is probably worth a 4 -5 stars but the service and salad situation was a deterrent for sure.
They are careful to use different utensils and ask if they should change their gloves when making a gluten free pizza. Their gluten free crust is great!
Blaze is really great here with changing gloves and separate sauce for the gluten free pizzas. Only thing I would suggest is to watch your pizza when they are cooking it/bringing it out of the oven. On one occasion a gluten pizza landed slightly on top of my pizza and I had to ask them to remake it. Manager completely apologized and gave me a free pizza coupon, but just make sure to watch for that. But I've eaten here a number of times with no symptoms and i'm pretty sensitive. They make a really good crispy crust and I love adding Zucchini to my pizza.
they change gloves and put a protector tray under the dough; however, it is pressed on the same machine so the top is not protected. A separate sauce container and utensil is also used. lots of cross contamination possible however with all the toppings. The gloves used to touch the wheat dough also reach into the toppings. while they change gloves to make your pizza the wheat contact gloves have already contaminated the toppings. definite reaction after eating.
The GF pizza was delicious. We are a GF, EF, DF family and all of us were easily accommodated. It is super busy though, and for your own safety speak up and ask for glove changes, monitor the toppings selection if you have multiple allergies and ask for a clean pizza cutter since cross contamination could easily occur. They do share the same oven so if you are highly sensitive to gluten beware. We have wheat allergy, not celiacs and it was fine for us.
The quality has changed here. The past three times here I personally watched them contaminate the pizza but placing the cooked pizza right on top of a wheat pie. Manager couldn't care less. STAY AWAY IF YOU HAVE CELIAC! They have GF pizza but their employees don't follow the company procedures. They lost a good customer
They have GF pizza dough, and offer to all put on clean gloves when handling the dough. It is still made in the same assembly line and cooked in the same brick oven. I personally did have a negative reaction to my GF pizza. It was also all crunch and not soft at all.
Employees do change gloves and place the GF pizza on paper to separate it from regular pizzas... but then they also use all the same utensils without changing or cleaning. NOT SAFE for celiacs
I held in my rage at the pizza cutting boy by not saying anything at all but I should have because he was tossing my gf pizza on top of other non gf pizzas while cutting their crusts. Normally they aren't so bad about cross contamination but this time I just about flipped my lid. They're lucky I only have a mild intolerance. I was so hungry I ate it anyways though. I'm on hour 3 of uncomfortable indigestion. Next time, if I ever go again, he's getting a piece of my mind.
They have special sauce so there is no cross contamination and they cook the gluten free crust on a paper dish to avoid cross contamination as well. As soon as you say that you have an allergy or celiac disease, the person making your pizza changes their gloves and takes care of you. Delicious make your own pizzas!
I really enjoyed this place. When ordering the gluten free pizza they asked if I needed them to do a glove change. The pizza was really good! I'll be back for sure! (I do not have celiac and they do stress that there can be some cross contamination for those who are celiac, so be careful depending on your needs).
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/
This is hands down the best gluten free pizza I have ever had!!! They have dedicated sauces so the risk of cross contamination is very little and the staff is highly educated on allergies and takes fantastic care! We have never been made to feel bad because we have a large allergy order. We love it here!!!
Excellent! Gluten free dough available and they automatically put it on a separate plate before putting it into the press to prevent any cross contamination. Will ask right away if you need a glove change as well, everyone on the line handling your pizza will do it! Very helpful and patient and the pizza taste great.
The GF pizza is very good. The best I have had outside my home while making my own. The servers ask if you want a glove change. They sometimes pull sauce and cheese from a designated area but I've seen them grab the cheese from the common bin. As a Celiac I have to watch very closely and give most employees directions on how to handle my pizza. For instance they can't throw my GF pizza on the table prior to placing it in the oven,. The table is full of flour and it flies into the air when they plop it onto the table. So, a bit of guidance is needed. I ask to place my pizza straight into the oven, this works. Great pizza one of my favorites!
Great pizza with homemade dough. They use precaution when informing them of allergy. Dairy free cheese available as well :)
They have gotten much better at handling gluten free. They have one press for gluten free (however they always press it on its own paper and they clean the top of the press) and they have separate sauce for gluten free. Then they will pick up your pizza and cut it with special red utensils for only gluten free. And the pizza is delicious
Awesome gluten free pizza!!!! They have gluten free dough and you can use it to build your own pizza with unlimited toppings for the same price. Gluten free dough costs $3 extra but it is still $10.95 for a good sized personal pizza (too much for a single person to eat all at once.) If you get the "high rise" with extra dough, it becomes the BEST gluten free pizza ever! They use shared oven and toppings but will change gloves. (I am not celiac, but have not been sick.)
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!
Best Gluten Free crust ever!
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.
