    The staff was knowledgeable. They changed gloves and used separate tools. The pizza was quite good. The pizza is very thin crust.

    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.

    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.

    Delicious Gluten free pizza with fresh ingredients. They're basically like the Chipotle of Pizza. Everything is transparent so you can see the conditions/cleanliness. I was very happy with the taste of my meal. As soon as you ask for Gluten free they offer to remove their gloves and are careful to avoid cross contamination.

    I eat at Blaze a couple times a month. It's not gourmet pizza, but it's decent and you can put as much as you want of whatever toppings you want on your pie for the same reasonable price. But that's not what this site is about. Is this place safe for someone with celiac? In a word, no. It's not their fault, mind you -- it's the design of the restaurant. If you have celiac, don't eat here. The toppings are all cross contaminated, the shared workspace is contaminated, the oven and cutting area are contaminated. My wife and daughter have celiac; there's no way I'd let either of them eat at Blaze. Again, good pizza and a good deal, but definitely not safe for celiacs.

    if have given up gluten by choice and it's not a food sensitivity or celiac disease then I guess you could eat a gluten-free pizza here but just know that they're baked in the same oven as regular pizza and parts per million when a pizza is heated and the dough is heated and it starts to dry out and crack particles go airborne and will land on top of any random Pizza so when you go through the line and you tell him you want a gluten-free pizza and they pull up gluten-free down on some kind of plastic rubber Troy that they're going to stick in the oven I'm sure that's not toxic eating off of heated plastic or rubber but then they make the gluten-free pizza in the same exact oven at the same time with the other pizzas wrong that's not gluten free. when you go through the line and you tell them you want gluten-free they ask you is that by choice or an hour I felt like saying f*** you.... I should have known simply by when I was asked that question that this restaurant does not gluten sensitivity or people who do not want gluten in their food whether it's parts per million or whatever it's cross-contamination they don't know what they're f****** doing this place is not gluten friendly this place is not gluten-freefriendly!!! this place is not Celiac. g free!!!free I guess before you can post you have to give them at least one star well if I could put a negative sign in front of all five stars they have five- stars

    The pizza tastes great..but the 2 different times I have eaten there, (2 different locations), my husband and I both got sick to our stomachs. Such a shame, because they also offer vegan cheese. Not sure if it is something with the gf crust..or just heavy cross contamination while cooking :( .

    I was impressed that the employees all changed their gloves for my order. They also have a gluten free pizza press, special identifying trays, and cutters. However, I gave it 3 stars for the high risk of cross contamination. Even with a glove change, they still have to reach into the same topping bins to get what you want. Also, the pizza dough wasn't completely cooked through.

    They have a gluten free crust and ask if it's preference or allergy and do a glove change for allergy. They use a separate sauce ladle and put it on a rubber mat to cook, they also have a separate pizza cutter. They do a great job only negative would be for someone highly sensitive, even with a glove change they're still taking ingredients from the same bowls as those with regular gloves so there will inevitably be a small amount of cross contamination.

    As long as you tell the staff that you have a Gluten Allergy you are totally okay! I used to eat pizza 1- 3 times a week before I found out I had Celiac, now this is the only pizza I eat for two reasons 1) Best GF pizza dough and most amazing crust out there. 2) They will be very careful about cross contamination if you alert them. I probably eat here at least once a week and have not gotten sick and I have high sensitivity.

    If you have Celiac, make sure you tell them, and they'll change their gloves. You can also request that they use fresh toppings instead of the ones in the line, which may be contaminated. This location has been extremely accommodating, and I've never gotten sick.

    Great pizza and atmosphere! Fast and fresh. Probably not ideal for celiacs as the press used to create crusts was merely wiped down with a paper towel before forming my crust. Staff was careful about changing gloves and using utensils dedicated to GF.

    Separate sauce, changed gloves, took care to ensure no cross contamination while making the gluten free pizza. It tasted really good, too. They cook the pizza on a separate pad so it doesn't come in contact with the same oven base or item used to take it out of the oven.

    I was very impressed. the girl taking order and making pizza asked if gluten free was preference or allergy. she announced allergy to the staff, then changed gloves. the dough was pressed in a separate unit, put on special tray that was used for cooking on in the common oven. the sauce was from a separate covered container. once cooked, they used a separate cutter to slice it. it was the best fresh pizza I had in a while, and was impressed with the steps they took.

    Best gluten free pizza I've had, and I've tried a lot! Plenty of topping options, but there isn't a dedicated assembly or cooking area in my experience. They put the pizza on it's own cooking sheet and change their gloves, but the toppings they take from are also touched by gloves that have touched the regular pizza. You also have to watch them carefully because they are not careful about our pizza not touching other pizzas. It is not celiac friendly, but I have yet to get sick and eat here regularly.

    Great experience. They used separate sauce, tools etc to make my pizza. They actually accidentally used a non Gf paddle to remove my pizza. They informed me, remade my pizza and gave me a voucher for a free pizza. I'd much rather wait longer for my food than get sick.

    Delicious pizza - loved that they immediately offered to change gloves when I ordered GF crust. Plus they had a separate container for sauce for GF to avoid cross contamination with other sauce and utensils. They also got my toppings from containers under the counter to further avoid cross contamination. Great service!

    I was really impressed by how carefully they handled my order. They asked me if I needed a glove change and from there they got me all fresh ingredients! Not only did they have a gf crust, but their sauce is soy free, which I need, too. The only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because my crust was undercooked, but I would definitely go back again!

    The chain of communication failed at first. My kid has Celiac and would need extra precautions was lost after the first person. They had to remake the pizza, but they were happy to do so. Make sure to ask that they leave the GF crust on the tray for the oven and it not get placed on the cooling rack at the end. You will also have to be clear that a new slicer is needed. Otherwise the pizzas were really delicious (both GF and regular).

    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.

    BE very careful...if you have celiac this is not the place for tou. The GF crust is real BUT they throw flower into the oven to keep the pizza from sticking and rotate them around as they bake...CROSS contamination is unavoidable!

    gluten free crust costs $3 extra, and though they will happily swap gloves and the pizza cutter to minimize cross-contamination, they (understandably) use the same oven. tldr: not completely gluten free, too expensive for what you're getting.

    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.

    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!
