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.
Love Blaze pizza - thin crust (GF & non GF) with Vegan Cheese option.
Blaze Pizza in Des Moines refuses to clean their surface to prevent cross-contamination. They were extremely rude when I said a paper towel is simply spreading the crumbs. Do not eat here!!
They offer gluten-free pizza crust. However, even with the fancy call out for glove changes and a special container for the sauce, they baked the pizza bare where the other pizzas are, used the same board, cutting stand, and cutter as wheat pizzas. Expect cross contamination here. Also, the crust was horrible, and they burned it. They did not offer to replace the burnt pizza.
Every effort was made to keep me gluten free. Protective cover on my GF crust when the dough was pressed. Manager actually assembled my pizza. All toppings are GF, except the meatballs. Person who did the cutting changed his gloves and got a fresh clean pizza cutter for my pizza. Tasted great. I will go back.
Our church youth group stopped here recently. I happened to be in line right behind our one student who has celiac disease. As soon as John asked for gluten-free crust, the young man helping him said, "Do you want a glove change with that?" and the prep guy immediately started cleaning the surface where they prepare the crust. The manager told me later that they pride themselves in serving customers with special dietary needs and that the young man who helped us was a new employee. I was impressed that a new employee would be so well-versed in gluten-free options. Plus the pizza came out fast and was delicious!
They have gluten-free crust, and it's affordable. You can get a standard pizza, any topping you want on GF crust for around $11.00. It is a shared cooking environment, and a shared oven. The crust was okay, but there are other restaurants with better crust. Their crust was very thin and soggy. The crust wouldn't even hold the toppings on my pizza.They have horrible customer service. This was my first time eating at this restaurant (and location). I ordered online. I went inside to see the cashier, and when I walked in NONE of the employees greeted me or made eye contact. They was no acknowledgment that a customer even walked in. I then went to the online order section, and waited behind one woman. Another man came up from the right of me, from the Order Inside Line. When it was my turn, he then tried to cut in front of me. I said I was actually next in line. The cashier asked me 1 question, there was no other communication. When I signed me receipt she then turned to the man who tired to cut in front of me and apologized to him! She then cooked his pizza first, and I waited for another 5 minutes after mine was supposed to be ready. Not to mention, I am concerned about health department codes! When I opened the box, the pizza was sitting directly on top of my printed receipt from the restaurant! I have no idea how many hands touched that receipt, where it has been, or if the ink was even dry and she put my pizza directly on top of it!
Their gluten free pizza is delicious!!
Not the best at making sure no cross contamination. Not consistent in using sauces and instruments from nongf pizzas on GF pizzas. also watch the oven, use the same instruments to move, pop crust bubbles on pizzas in the oven. had a reaction last time I went.
Very tasty pizza with super-thin crust. The lady helping me was wonderful. I didn't even have to ask her to be careful about cross-contamination. She began cleaning everything before I had the chance to ask! They use a special pan liner and cutting wheel. Would definitely eat here again.
When I watched them handling the pizza in the oven I noticed cross contamination between my pizza and others. It was very busy when I went so there wasn't much room in the oven to keep my pizza separate. I would be cautious here if you have celiacs.
My family and I have been here many times since me and my brother were diagnosed and each time they have been very knowledgeable about celiac. I've never had any problems and this is definitely one of the best experiences I've had since being diagnosed.
Great Gluten Free Crust! They will change gloves! Vegan cheese as well. They cook the Gluten Free pizzas on separate mats. Very attentive and careful when preparing my pizza.
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.
So fast & staff super friendly! Great GF pizza!!!!
This place is awesome! They do a glove change before making a gluten free pizza and have separate sauce so no cross contamination. It was absolutely delicious! Don't let long lines change your mind. The line moves fairly quickly and it is worth any wait!
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.
Wow finally a great gluten free pizza. These guys are great and they take gluten free and celiacs seriously. They ask about changing gloves!!!!!😀. 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. Rob is the manager and he really cares!!!
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!
amazing place and gluten friendly
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.
Had the oil drizzle with bacon, mushrooms and cheese. Also arugula salad. The young woman who served us was very careful and the service was fast. No reactions to the tasty pizza!
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!
Excellent pizza. They will have the food handler change gloves before preparing you food. I'm also soy free and they were very accommodating. Located in Disney springs. I'll certainly eat there again.
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.
