The staff was knowledgeable. They changed gloves and used separate tools. The pizza was quite good. The pizza is very thin crust.
My favorite pizza in the Chicago area! Super thin, but perfectly so.
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.
Great pizza, staff is very friendly and they do try to avoid cross contamination by using separate sauce and utensils.
They have gluten-free pizza crust for an extra $3. Pretty good. But I can't quite tell how good they are about cross-contamination. Looks like the pizza is made on all the same equipment as the gluten crust.
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.
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.
They tried to fix me a gf pizza 4 times and all 4 times I saw them gluten it. I gave up and left.
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!
Also provide dairy free too!
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.
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.
