    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.

    It is not safe for celiacs. From their website: "We use the same oven and dough press for both gluten-free and standard dough, so there is a good chance of some cross-contact in our restaurants." http://www.blazepizza.com/faqs/

    Great price for amazing pizza! Doesn't even taste gluten free - yay! Just make sure you ask for a glove change and dedicated gluten free sauce.

    They have the best gluten-free pizza crust we have had! They ask if it's a preference or an allergy. They changed their gloves and have a separate sauce if you say you have celiac. I asked them to use a new cutter and they did. if you communicate with them it was a great eating experience. My daughter says she has a new pizza place! $9.95 for the gluten free crust with unlimited toppings.

    There is a dedicated press for GF crusts, a separate covered container of sauce (with separate ladle) and separate pizza slicer. GF crusts go into the oven on a separate mat so as to minimize risk of contamination. Staff also changed gloves before making my pizza.

    Good pizza, but I learned from going there that they use the same press to shape and create the gluten free dough that they do to make the regular dough, without placing either one of the doughs in anything. Therefore, even though they place the dough on a silicon mat and use different cutters, before they put the dough on a silicon mat, they are placing it in the same location they place the regular dough. There is a ton of cross-contamination happening in this process, and therefore I have stopped going to Blaze. If you have celiac disease like I do, I strongly suggest you use caution when eating here, due to the extreme cross contamination happening in the process of the pizza dough being prepared.

The topping choices are amazing and they use Udis crust on a dedicated setup that never sees wheat or gluten. Just awesome. If you like pizza come here friendly staff and great food.

    Blaze does a great job accommodating to gf needs. They do not have a dedicated prep area, but they do have specific mats, cutters, etc for gluten allergies. I would still be cautious with celiacs but know two people with celiacs who can eat there and are yet to have issues. One of the best gluten free pizzas I've had so far!

    This a definite go-to restaurant for me. If you specify a gluten allergy, they will put on clean gloves and send that one person through the line with you. I have noticed that they sometime spread sauce with the same ladle as they use for wheat crust, but it doesn't seem to cross contaminate anything. I am VERY sensitive and I eat here all the time with no issues.

    Blaze Pizza has an allergen list and gluten-free pizza crust. All of the toppings are gluten-free except for the meatballs. Blaze Pizza does a great job about changing gloves. The pizza is kept on a red mat indicating gluten free so it never touches the same surface as flour. The pizza cutters are also specifically only used on gluten free pizzas. Great service - everyone took extra precaution to ensure my meal was safe of cross-contamination. Reasonably priced pizza too.

    Offer GF crust, with several disclaimers. Talked to them and they said they do their best with xcontamination (note gluten allergy & they will take extra precautions). GF crust is thin and crispy, just ok in my book but toppings were great so not too bad overall. Good value, service and nice vibe (staff was really cool). Nice to have options for quick fire pizza!

    Great pizza! Gluten free crust, vegan cheese options. They make it in front of you (think Subway) and wood fire cook it. Will do glove changes if you ask. They cook gluten free on a mat, on the same wood fire oven.

    I was very impressed by their gluten free thoroughness. I had to wait a while for them to get a GF crust out, but when they did, the guy changed his gloves before touching it and then stayed with my pizza all the way to the oven. (Their usual method is to have an assembly line where 3 people prep your pizza). I asked the final guy to not cut my pizza but he pointed out that they have a separate GF cutter. He too changed his gloves before touching the pizza. Very thorough! Unfortunately I found the pizza crust and overall flavor to be just so-so. I have had much better GF pizza in the Phoenix AZ area (where I currently live). Picazzos and NYPD have great GF pizza, so good that non GF people eat there.

    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.

    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.
