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.
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!
This place has a gluten free option for the pizza crust. Fresh and delicious ingredients. The was very helpful and polite. Also inexpensive. I love it 😍😍😍🍕🍕🍕🍕
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!
Awful gluten free pizza, tastes like cardboard. They use the same pizza cutter for regular pizzas on gluten pizzas. I was sick for days. Ate here once, never again.
Excellent GF crust. The best I've ever had. Loved it. Fast, fresh, and friendly service.
Excellent restaurant that goes to great lengths to ensure a gluten free dining experience. cooks changed gloves and separate utensils and cooking materials were used for my pizza. They have a diverse array of toppings to choose from, all of which were fresh and delicious. I highly recommend Blaze Pizza for my fellow celiacs. The staff is knowledgeable and careful about our gluten "allergy."
Build your own GF pizza was excellent cooked in a fire oven very quick
best gluten free pizza for your money! unlimited toppings!!! they take extra care to prevent cross contamination including new gloves, sauce from a separate container, special utensils, and a special mat they cook the pizza on so it doesn't touch the oven. no noticeable reaction so far and I have been there several times.
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).
I am a very sensitive celiac patient, thus very afraid of eating out. As I entered Blaze on Friday afternoon, the staff immediately welcoming and friendly. I told the employee that it was very important for me to get a gluten free pizza, and he immediately changed his gloves and took care of the gf pie for me. Blaze provides an online allergen guide and most of the ingredients they use are naturally gluten free. The ingredients, which are mostly very natural and of superior quality, are all dealt with separately, and from my standpoint there is minimal risk of cross contamination. I ate my whole pie in one seating and had no reaction whatsoever. The restaurant is clean and has a very nice atmosphere. I am so glad to have found a place where I can get a fresh gluten free meal for under $10!
Unimpressed with the food and the service. Want GF pizza? Go to Evo. I met friends here, who informed me that they serve gluten-free pizza. I got in line and asked the guy handling the dough if the GF dough was prepared on a separate surface. He said yes, and I got excited. When I got to the server taking orders, my hopes were dashed. I asked the server about gluten in the sauces and toppings, and she had no idea. I asked her if there was any way to find out. She said no, and suggested that I eat elsewhere. My friends found the manager, who did know the allergen info, so I was eventually able to order a pizza. While I appreciate that the server didn't lie about her lack of knowledge, they need to train their employees better. Also, the information on the website (which I looked at later) was different from what I was told in-store. PIZZA, Red Vine: limp GF crust, no flavor. Chunks of mozzarella cheese were over cooked as compared to the other toppings. SALAD, goat cheese and beets: limp arugula, only two slices of beets, smooshed into a plastic clam shell, not enough dressing for the salad. (Note: review also on Yelp)
Even though cross contamination cannot be completely eliminated in this type of environment, they used precautions to limit exposure as much as possible. They changed gloves several time and they even put the pizza on a special protective sheet. Employees were extremely helpful and friendly.
The Gluten-free crust here is hands-down the best I've ever had for gf pizza. If you order it, they will ask if its an allergy or preference and ask if you want them to change their gloves. They ask automatically as opposed to my experience with Pieology. Blaze has a separate gf dough press so you don't have to worry about dough cross contamination. Not all of the toppings are gf though so if you have a reaction, you can kind of rule things out (the sausage isn't gf). Ask if you aren't sure and they will let you know. Gf crusts everywhere else are pre-made and tastes like cardboard.
They are a wonderful small business, and the flavor was great, but my pizza was burnt on the top, and had VERY soft/soggy crust. It was also disappointing that their white sauce wasn't GF, which is really easy to make. I'll try them one more time and give a higher rating if warranted, but so far nothing beats BJ'S GF pizza.
I fled this place after watching the assembly line of servers putting pizzas together and shuffling them all down a line. Ingredients are all out in the open, so contamination seemed unavoidable. After watching pizzas tossed into oven one after the other, felt unsafe with my restrictions and bailed.
Went here recently for the first time and the pizza was terrible. Crust was so incredibly thin and even though it was cooked (twice actually) it still tastes doughy and uncooked. Felt sick after eating a piece. Would rather have dominos! They did offer to change gloves though, that was nice of them.
i love blaze. I'm allergic to gluten and dairy abd they are so accommodating. the gluten free is crispy and thin and the choice of toppings is so great that i don't even miss the cheese! they do have vegan cheese available if you like vegan cheese. My favorite pizza place.
