    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.

    Make sure you ask for the dollop sauce bucket. They slide the ladle all over the regular pizza with the regular sauce bucket. Just okay for GF pizza. They used to have GF beer. They no longer have it.

    I loved this place before I went gf, but the guy asking if I needed a separate pizza cutter made me nervous. Haven't been back since.

    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.

    they go through quite a bit off effort to make GF for allergy purposes. however the kitchen and oven are shared. they put the allergy GF pizza on a isolation silicone tray. Tasted fantastic however still had a reaction probably from the flour dust flying around

    Really great New York style flat pizza. One of the best gf pizzas I've had. Crust is not overly sweet like some. Rivals tommys pizza in north beach. On the small side but price is good. $3 more for gf. Regular price $8.25-6.25!!

    Not dedicated oven, but use a separate pan for GF dough, and as if you want them to change gloves when making pizzas. Delicious individual pizzas made fast (inside of 5 minutes). Perfect spot for downtown lunch choice. Key for me was no after effects so this place passed the test.

    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.

    I have Celiac and was terrified to eat at a pizza place. They assured me they have a different dough press and area in the oven, and knew what toppings I couldn't have. I've successfully eaten there 3 times and felt great! My new favorite place :)

    Celiacs BEWARE- their "gluten free" crust is NOT gluten free. It's made on the same press, on the same surfaces, and in the same ovens as all the other pizzas. There's nothing to separate the GF pizzas from the wheat pizzas. They fully disclose this on their menus, but they are very irresponsible in calling their product "gluten free". Celiacs can not eat here.

    Build your own pizza. You go through the line and tell them what you want on the pizza, as much as you want. Gluten free crust for $3 extra. Will change gloves. Made in the same space as other pizzas, though they do seem to be careful to use separate utensils.

    I went there a couple months ago. I had to talk quite a bit to them to get the "double" allergy prep approach (not using the additional items from the bins, but getting containers from below for pepperoni, etc), and still a little of the edge of the crust touched things it shouldn't have. I would have liked it if they wiped all the counters beforehand, and THEN gotten the containers from below for my additions. ...at least they had clean gloves... Nonetheless I avoid both gluten and dairy, I tolerated the pizza very well. I bet if you went first thing when they opened, and got the pizza a bit undercooked to warm up that evening, it would be much more GF.

    Server asked if I was GF because of preference or allergy. When told, "Allergy," she said all would change their gloves. One server said she would change gloves and follow my order the way down the line. She did. I watched the oven person put my order on a special platter and use a separate paddle. When cooked, the last server change gloves, use a designated cutter, stored in a separate bin, to cut my pie. Was very pleased!! Then I went to the Nordstom ebar for my gluten-free cookie and Mexican mocha!

    Not safe for celiacs! Let me say, it's a great pizza place. The food is good and is prepared very quickly, but it is NOT celiac friendly because they put all the pizzas in the same oven and there are crumbs and flour all over the place. They prepare the dough separately and have a separate pot of sauce, but I didn't trust that assembly line not to get any cross contamination either.

They use separate utensils and a separate prep are. I have celiac disease and am very sensitive and I have never had a problem!
