The pizza is just fine but they’re good about celiac and have several gluten free options even in appetizers. Pizza are cooked on foil so they don’t touch gluten.

One of the best gluten free crusts we’ve had. It was chewy in a good way and baked until golden (rather than charred like many other crust experiences we’ve had). Very impressed. NOTE: We are gluten intolerant not celiac (severe eczema from ingestion). There is absolutely cross contamination.

Amazing gluten free pizza crust! Pricey but worth it. They don’t have dedicated space but they were willing to change gloves, get out new ingredients for me and ensured my pizza didn’t touch other surfaces including putting it on something in the oven. I felt great after and would eat here again.

I grew up eating Beu Jo's pizza and absolutely love their food. Now GF (Either celiac or highly sensitive, awaiting results), not so much. I had their Pesto Chicken pizza with the cauliflower crust and even notified the waitress of my situation, but still had a reaction and did not digest the food.

Unfortunately this place is not safe if you have Celiac. Cross contamination risk is very high. I ate there this weekend per a recommendation and I became very ill despite assurances from the waitress that they would take precautions.

NOT celiac friendly. I ordered the italian turkey sandwich gluten free and told the waitress that I needed to be strictly gluten free. She was very nice and seemed knowledgeable and said they would change their gloves and use a clean knife and prepare it on clean area with parchment paper. Unfortunately when I got the sandwich and tested a sample of each ingredient and bread with my Nima Sensor, it found gluten. The waitress was very sorry and explained the this is a very busy Buea Jo's and depending on the staff in the kitchen it can be hard to guarantee a gluten free meal. They did not charge for my sandwich. I gave 2 stars for the friendly waitress but I would not recommend a celiac eat here.

Ate here last night - the ~25min wait was worth it. My husband & I had the GF garlic bread, stuffed mushrooms, and then split the GF pesto chicken pizza. The garlic bread is an entire sub cut in half - huge portion!The GF food is prepared separately and comes out MUCH FASTER than the regular pies. We had our food & finished eating within 35mins and the surrounding tables didn't have their pizzas yet. GF for the win! And no reactions what-so-ever!

Hands down the best gluten free pizza I have eaten! I had the 'Lil Italy. From their menu & website I feel like they do a better job of any pizza joint with gluten & gf pizza to prevent cc. I only ate here because of the other Celiac reviews. I would have given 5 starts, but I feel there is still a risk of cc, but lower than most pizza places.

I was afraid to try pizza at a new place since I'm on a road trip so I didn't eat it til we got back to our hotel but when I did eat it... omg! Its the best gf pizza hands down and they did an excellent job with the cross contamination. I am very sensitive and didn't get sick. Major kuddos to this wonderful establishment. I highly recommend trying this.

Amazing! I have celiac *and* a severe wheat allergy. I know within 4-5 minutes if something has wheat or has been cross-contaminated. This place rocks! I ate chicken strips and a pizza and I'm feeling fantastic! I wish we lived in the area - I'd eat here all the time! Just passing through on a road trip. I recommend this place unreservedly.

Travelling cross country, we were in Colorado looking for a place for dinner where my daughter and I could eat (both celiac) Found Beau Jo's - fantastic! GF pizza was wonderful, salad bar was excellent and the staff was very helpful and answering our questions. Great experience all the way around.

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed after reading all the great reviews. As a Colorado native I have always loved Beau Jo's, even though I'm not usually one for thick crusts - dipping the crusts in honey makes the thick crust worth it, and it's really only thick around the edges...delicious! After reading all the awesome reviews, I expected to have a pizza that was at least similar to their regular pizza, but the crust was very thin and crispy and was practically dripping in oil. It tasted ok, but was certainly not the Beau Jo's experience I was hoping for. I still dipped my crusts, it just wasn't anywhere near the same. :( Maybe I ordered the wrong kind of pizza, though? I'm still giving 4 stars, because the service was awesome, they seemed knowledgeable about gluten free, and they had quite a few gluten free options on the menu (even aside from pizza). I will definitely try again, and maybe next time I'll ask if there is a thicker gluten free crust option. It was just kind of a bummer watching all my friends enjoy their thick, bready crusts with honey while I basically had an oily cracker with honey. If you go, you'll likely be happy as long as you don't have the expectation that it will truly be a Beau Jo's pizza.

Staff was knowledgeable, and told us to request allergy precautions when ordering. They had multiple GF options. We ordered the GF garlic cheesy bread to start and it was good, but could have used more garlic. The GF pizza crust is made in a separate dedicated facility and baked on parchment. They used a clean knife to cut it. It was amazingly tasty! We also had a regular gluten pizza on the table and there was very little difference in taste or texture. My daughter did not get sick. We all enjoyed it and we will definitely be back. They told me we can order a box of 4 crusts from them for $20.

I tried the gluten free pepperoni pizza and the gluten free garlic cheesy bread and the gluten free chicken tenders. Everything was so delicious! It was the best gluten free pizza I have had in the states. Reminded me of gluten free pizza I had in Italy.
