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.
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.
The employees are trained for allergen safety. They have dedicated utensils. The pizza is pretty tasty, too!
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.
Toppings were good but the gluten-free crust is as thin as paper.
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.
They always offer a glove change and they have a dedicated gf press for the pizza. They have separate containers and utensils for spreading sauce. they also use a separate slicer to cut the pizza. I have eaten there at least 8 times and only noticed a bit of cross contamination one time. overall very pleased with the safety here. And the price is pretty good compared to skipolinis.
They can't guarantee there's no cross contamination so if you are very sensitive it might not be the best place to go but they do take precautions to avoid as much cross contamination as possible, glove change, separate cutter, and they put the dough on an extra thing so it doesn't touch the wood slider or the areas that the other pizzas touch. The dough is pretty fantastic. Just check ahead of time that any toppings you want are gluten free as there are a few toppings that aren't
I have a gluten allergy as well as dairy and eggs . This is hands down the best and one of the only pizza places that offer a pizza that can also be made vegan. They offer Daiya dairy free cheese as an option. Their crust is delicious , and they are extremely cautious with cross contamination as long you specify it's an allergy.
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!!!
