Order was given through the side take out window. The woman who took my order seemed aware when I said I needed a gluten free pizza. It only came in a small size and there was a $5 up charge for it. She asked me what my allergy was and I told her I was celiac. She said they do things differently in the back for celiac. So far, so good! We received the pizza and brought it back to our room. It was probably the best tasting pizza crust I’ve had since being diagnosed. We ordered the basecamp pizza in a small and it was plenty for the two of us. I did not feel sick to my stomach or bloated at all that evening. A great experience and I am looking forward to eating here again!

I had a wonderful experience here. I made an online order and I called and made sure they alerted the kitchen it was an allergy so they were able to take precautions in order to minimize cross contamination. I had no reaction and the crust was amazing! It was thicker than I've seen on a gf pizza in a long time and it transported me back to my childhood! I have been gf for 13 years so it's been awhile. It was expensive but definitely worth it.

Went here for the great reviews. Maybe I didn’t ask enough questions. We ordered the garlic chips (which is just cheese pizza) and a gluten free pizza. I was so sick that night into the next day. As we were eating it I thought it was too good to be true. Would not recommend for celiacs

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.

If you like pizza.... you have to try it! Make sure to tell them allergy. They will use all new supplies, changes gloves, and treat it seriously. The pizza..... was literally the BEST Pizza I've ever had! The crust is thicker, yet somehow thin. The toppings have such great flavor. I had Bbq chicken and my hubs had the margarita. So good, and did not get sick!

Staff was very knowledgable about the gluten free items on the menu and pointed out everything that could be made gluten free. I was very impressed by the number of options. I ordered the pear walnut salad and a pepperoni pizza. This was probably the best gluten free pizza I’ve ever had. The crust was crispy, yet also thick and fluffy in the center. I was also notified that all gluten free pizzas are made on a pan in an attempt to eliminate cross contamination. I did not get sick and will most definitely be going back.

RUN TO ENJOY THIS PIZZA! 🍕Sensitive celiac passing through South Lake Tahoe and despite some mixed reviews, I am SO GLAD we ate here! We ordered GF Big Mountain pizza and the GF Garlic Chips (garlic cheese bread) and both we AMAZING! Came on a nice, thick, delicious GF crust and haven’t felt sick at all!

NOTE: no space to mark “allergy” while ordering online so I called in and the kind woman on the phone offered to mark the order with celiac/allergy for me!

I don’t have Celiac but am very sensitive to CC. I decided to try this place out because the GF options are so limited in Tahoe and Tahoe is always a pizza mood. The staff are aware of celiac disease and use new gloves, pans, and cutters for GF pizzas. All GF pizzas come in personal 10” size for something like a $6 up charge (oof).

I’m happy to report that the pepperoni and Hawaiian pizzas were delicious and I did not get sick. Granted, I took Benadryl that night to pre-empt symptoms.

And I don’t know if this was a factor but we dined at 11:30am on July 4 before the lunch rush hour. I wonder if getting in early lowered the risk for CC because there wasn’t as much flour in the air preparing regular pizzas.

If I’m being honest— best pizza of my life. My husband who isn’t gf, said the gf pizza was better than his regular pizza. They took all my requests very seriously and we went multiple times during our trip, and I didn’t get sick once. I got the Hawaiian with ham and pineapple and the garlic chips on gf crust. Highly recommend if you’re in the mood for pizza!

I had the GF pizza with chicken, bacon and onions one evening and then the GF garlic pizza appetizer another evening. Both were tasty and I did not become ill afterwards. I’m sure there is a risk of cross contamination bc it is a pizza place though.

This was the best gluten free crust I’ve ever had. My boyfriend eats gluten and said it was really good even compared to the normal crust. They were honest about the chance of cross contamination but said that they change gloves and use dedicated pans and knives. I did not get sick but I did take a gluten enzyme pill just in case since I’d be skiing the next day.

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.

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.

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!!
