The GF pizza is cooked in the same oven as the regular pizza. The place is set up sort of like a pizza edition similar to Chipotle (you choose the crust, instruct them on what toppings to put on it, etc) If you are sensitive to cross contamination, I would recommend watching the servers and asking them to make sure they change their gloves and the pizza cutter, and to wipe down the pizza spatula. I got their gluten free crust with a variety of toppings and it was pretty good, and I didn’t have any glutening symptoms. It was tasty, not the best, though,I’d give it a B- rating overall.

I love Blaze pizza, however this specific location is not safe for gluten allergies. They are not very understanding or safe. And staff is rude.

The server changed gloves before preparing my gluten free pizza. They also had dairy free cheese. This was the best pizza I’ve had in a while and I can highly recommend. They didn’t have a separate prep area so perhaps check if you’re highly sensitive to cross contamination.

Had to remake my pizza THREE times because first time he didn’t change gloves and second time he used the regular pizza cutter. Third time appeared to be fine but I still got sick. Lots of cross contamination from flour in the air I think...I don’t recommend. The guy working there also rolled his eyes and clearly didn’t take my allergy seriously.

Pizza was tasty! They knew how to prevent cross contamination and asked if I wanted them to change gloves. Used separate sauce. Reminded them to use new pizza cutter (different person). I would go back.

Absolutely love Blaze. Gluten free pizza is cooked on a separate section of the oven, and staff always asks if you'd like them to change their gloves before handling your food. Second only to Homeslice for the best GF pizza in Chicago, super fast, reasonably priced (up charge for GF crust, mine usually amounts to around $11). I crave Blaze regularly!

they go through quite a bit off effort to make GF for allergy purposes. however the kitchen and oven are shared. they put the allergy GF pizza on a isolation silicone tray. Tasted fantastic however still had a reaction probably from the flour dust flying around

very nice staff, asked if gluten free was allergy or personal preference. when we said allergy, they took special care to keep everything separate (separate prep area, separate cutter, etc). the pizza was delicious!!

it was really good and they change the bars without asking and use different shoes without asking so no nothing was touching different weight products.

You do need to Be sure they know it’s an allergy, but they will change gloves etc when you ask. Great pizza with a vegan cheese option for those of us who are dairy sensitive.

I will literally never return to Blaze ever again. Although the staff changed gloves and did everything they could, this place is just simply not safe for people with celiac disease. The last time I ate here I got one of the sickest I have ever gotten from gluten. I literally can’t even look at pizza the same anymore.

I had such high hopes for this place... The first lady was very careful, changing gloves, using sauces in the back... But I couldn't watch the oven or the lady cutting it... Sure enough, cramps, terrible reflux, exhaustion, nausea... Yup, I got glutened. I really don't know what happened, but this has been the worst glutening since I went GF. I mean, the pizza tasted great, but I can't really say they're celiac friendly with how poorly I feel right now.
