I called before we arrived. They were very open about offering gf crust and using a separate pan for gf pizza with allergy, but said there is flour in the air so if we had severe allergies we may want to skip. We tried it anyway and it was delish! Thick crust too. Best thick gf crust we have ever had.

They do offer gluten free crust. When we told the waitress my daughter has celiac she confirmed that she would be fine to order GF pizza. My daughter sadly got sick after eating it.

Fabulous gluten free pizza with thickest GFCruust ever. They asked if allergy related. Great tasting pizza. It tasted so good the first time I wondered if it was actually a gluten-free but it truly is. Enjoy if you can eat pizza in these type environments

They have gluten free crust. The staff takes any allergy seriously was what I was told. They cook it on a separate tray.

This is the best gf crust I’ve EVER had. Even my husband, who usually hates gf crust, loved it. I’ve never had a reaction from cross contamination at Base Camp.

We ordered the Thai and Hawaiian pizza on GF crust. I stressed the fact I had celiac and the server said his roommate, who used to work there, also had celiac and never had an issue with the pizza or restaurant. When it came it looked delicious and it was delicious!! Best GF pizza crust I had had by far!

We went here based on most of the good reviews but decided not to order pizza for my Celiac husband after the server said that their kitchen isn’t safe for those with Celiac or severe allergies. The kitchen is small, there isn’t a separate gf prep area, there is flour everywhere and they don’t use separate toppings or sauce for those with Celiac so the hands and spoon that touches the wheat pizzas touches the gf ones. It also goes into the same oven as the other pizzas. They do use a separate pan and separate cutter though. I do really appreciate their honesty though so much more than other places who say that it’s safe for Celiacs when it’s not so I would give them 5 stars for that.

8/19/2019 just as I remembered it was the most wonderful pizza with thick crust. They allowed us to use daiya cheese that we brought with us. I tested with Nima and all tested gf. 7/2017 This was the BEST gf pizza I've had since going gf (celiac) 6 years ago!!! The crust was think and crispy on the outside. We loved it so much we ordered extra pizza to go. They didn't offer dairy free but allowed us to bring in dairy free cheese for them to use on the kids pizza that also needed to be dairy free. We also had the gf buffalo wings. Everything was good but the BBQ pizza was amazing! The server said they have a special area where they prepare gf pizza and I didn't get sick. Updated 7/2018 we went here twice this vacation the pizza was just as amazing as we remembered. I tested pizza and gf hummus and olives (no feta) with my Nima and it tested gf.

I was so excited to eat here after reading how good the pizza was! I ordered a gluten free personal with pepperoni,jalapeños and pineapple- my favorite!

Pizza was out quickly and I dug in.

While eating a slice the waiter came back to inform me my pizza wasn’t gluten free-

Why? Because the spinach artichoke dip my boyfriend ordered wasn’t gluten free so they didn’t think the pizza needed to be.

They compensated by giving a free round of drinks and brought me another pizza.

An hour later I was extremely sick due to their negligence and had to leave Tahoe early.

Pizza was amazing but what careless staff.

2019 absolutely the best GF pizza crust ever. 2017 Excellent and safe. Personal pizza was enough for dinner and 1/2 to take back to the condo for lunch. 2018 Delicious, but I think I had a slight reaction, especially after I ate the second half of the pizza I took back to the condo.

Their GF crust is amazing! It isn’t the normal thin crusts that most pizza companies use. This was thicker and chewy. Was even good cold the next morning. My non GF husband even approved. Staff very knowledgeable as well. They can even make their garlic chips GF. .

The gluten-free pizza crust here is the BEST i have ever had! After reading previous reviews, i felt confident that celiac-safe protocols are used. Our server was helpful too - when we asked to see the ingredients for the hot cocoa, he brought out the packaging so we could read the allergen statement. I did not have a reaction or symptoms following dinner. I recommend this for awesome GF pizza that appears to be celiac safe!

I’ve been here twice and both times the staff was very knowledgeable, they mark your order as “allergy”. The gluten free pizza is out of this world!! It is a bit more expensive and only comes in one size (10”) but you can have any toppings/pizza that you want, you are not limited to just one kind. No adverse symptoms after eating here.

The best gf pizza ever! Shared a Basecamp and BBQ chicken. Both were delicious. They let us bring in our own unopened Daiya cheese (youcan get at Raley’s across the street). We are super sensitive and did not get sick. Highly recommend and you won’t be disappointed. Also, they do not use latex gloves.

I had the pear and walnut salad and the Smoky BBQ Chicken pizza on the gluten free crust. Everything tastes great and did not make me sick. Our waiter asked me if I was gluten free by choice or because of an allergy which gave me confidence in their staff's knowledge.

Hands down the best GLUTEN FREE pizza ever! My son and I both have Celiacs disease so we rarely get the treat of pizza. We went here hoping that all would be well and we enjoyed every bite. My husband and other family members also joined in and had "regular pizza" which they say is FANTASTIC! Great staff, wonderful environment and fantastic food/beers. We loved it so much we went multiple times on our short trip!

Server was very knowledgable about what items were safe and which were not, they cook the gf pizza in the same oven but it's own pan, they use separate utensils to cut the pizza, and say they try very hard to make sure it's safe. Also, certain salad dressings were safe and one was not. Would eat here again
