I can’t say enough good things about this place. I am treated so well every time I go and the people working are always more than willing to meet my needs. They change gloves before preparing the pizza, they have the dough (THAT IS FRESH AND NOT A PREMADE CRUST) in a separate container in a separate fridge, they don’t make the pizza on the same surface and using different spoons/utensils, they put a mat under the pizza before putting it the oven and away from the other pizzas so it does not touch anything. Once it comes out the oven it’s cut on the mat with a designated pizza cuter. I have never once been sick from this place except maybe when I shove the pizza down my throat in 5 minutes. The people are also so friendly and don’t make you feel like a burden for having restrictions which something I feel from so other places. Of course cross contamination is a worry everywhere but they so everything in their power to ensure it’s safe to eat. Lastly, usually it’s an assembly line set up like chipotle where they pass the pizza down to a different person but if you have an allergy one person works with you from start to finish so they are mistakes made in a transfer.

1. Not safe for celiacs at all 2. Was told gluten never touches the toppings so it would be safe. Then I watch another worker pull & shape raw dough, and then go to put toppings on a different pizza without changing gloves. 3. Flour all over the counter. 4. If I wanted a GF pizza I could’ve spent $14 for crust and sauce. 5. Place is dirty and disgusting. Bathroom looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in weeks. Garbage over flowing. We had to clean off the tables and chairs so my non celiac family could eat what they ordered.

REVISED REVIEW:

Blaze has totally changed their approach to GF. They make GF crust from- separate from the regular. They have a dedicated press, and dedicated GF sauce, and cutters. I recommend visiting when they are not super busy- they will take the time to go slowly and be careful of x-contam. It's not perfect- there is flour present, but for a non-dedicated facility, they do a very good job. Food is fresh and good/very good (very good for a chain).

They were very nice, but I would not recommend this place for anyone with Celiac Disease. They will change their gloves when prepping, but they don't change them on the other end of the line when they take the pizza off the GF tray and onto your plate. They also use the same knife as they used on Every Other Pizza. I went without my Celiac daughter to check the place out and I will not be back.

Just vomited for over a hour from cross contamination, they need a separate oven and to use new metal pans when they're serving the crust! Please fix this and get yourself GIG certified we could use a great pizza place!

They have gotten much better at handling gluten free. They have one press for gluten free (however they always press it on its own paper and they clean the top of the press) and they have separate sauce for gluten free. Then they will pick up your pizza and cut it with special red utensils for only gluten free. And the pizza is delicious

I have been to Blaze restaurants that use precautions in preparing GF pizzas. This isn’t one of them. We ordered 2 GF pizzas for my daughter and I, and the fellow (not his fault, obviously had no training) took two of the cooking discs out of a pile of flour from the regular station. He put our GF dough on top of the flour covered discs. We apologized for the inconvenience and left. Blaze is in general a terribly run franchise system. Very disappointing.

They have great gluten free crust. It’s especially good if you ask for it well done as it helps get it more crispy. They are pretty good at changing gloves and asking if it is an allergy.

This location had been good in the past and made sure to take precautions including getting fresh toppings but not so great the past year. I’ve tried multiple times to go back and every time over the past year, I have walked out without ordering as they make me extremely uncomfortable. Every time I go they have a change in staff. When I ask about celiac friendly, they advise they change their gloves, have a gf dough, and have a separate “allergy” sauce, but they WILL NOT use separate toppings. So therefore you will be glutened. When I’ve inquired but getting fresh toppings they have advised they can’t do that. If you try this place be TAKE CAUTION.

They offer a Gluten free option but sadly there's a high risk of cross contamination. There are very few employees that care enough to acknowledge your celiac concerns and use ingredients separate from the front counter. I've been to this location twice and the 2nd time was the awful experience that made me stop going.

Excellent pizza! I had the regular GF crust and it was quite tasty. I also have to give them credit for switching out the crust twice when they pulled them out and they had small rips in the bottom. They said it was already fragile, so they wanted a good one. Excellent customer service!
