    The staff was very friendly. This is a pizza line where you tell staff what toppings to add. Staff were knowledgeable and made glove changes as well as used dedicated pizza cutters for GF pizzas. There is still possibility of cross contamination if the GF pizza slips off the mat in the shared oven or from the sauce scoop used on all pizzas. It was about as safe as it could be for the type of setup of this restaurant. I did not have a reaction, and my crust was tasty.

    We had dinner here. 3 of us gluten free and 1of us dairy and gluten free. serious allergy. They asked me if it was a allergy or preference. when I said allergy they wrote it on our tag and I watched them prepare our pizza crust. they used dedicated tools and changed their gloves. food was fantastic. one of the best gluten free crusts I have had! also they had goat cheese and vegan cheese as a choice.This is not a sit down restaurant where you are served. you stand in line and watch them put your toppings on your pizza and wait for it to cook then go seat yourself.

    Terrible. Ordered from there and became sick. They emailed me 5 minutes after picking it up saying they gave me the wrong pizza. No call, even though this could of been avoided because people don’t check their email 24/7

    Blaze handles GF fantastically, they have a separate dough presser, will change their gloves, have mats for the GF pizza in the oven, and have a separate pizza slicer. When you order, make sure to specify it’s an “allergy.” Remember to ask them for the GF red sauce instead of the regular (it’s easy to miss cause the GF one is at the end of the line). Be aware that the GF pizza will be a little hard and cracker-like after it comes out of the oven, but it is not anything terrible (I would just ask for extra sauce when ordering and get olive oil on it at the end). Friendly staff and delicious pizza :))

    I’ll start first with that fact that their gf pizza is absolutely the best I’ve had. The crust is made fresh daily and formed on a gluten free press as you order. They have separate sauce for the gf area and offer to do glove changes. That only area of possible cross contamination is the shared fired pizza oven. I have celiac and haven’t had any problems. I didn’t realize just how much I missed good pizza!

    I absolutely LOVE this place! The GF crust is amazing and the staff is well trained and knowledgeable about celiac needs. They change gloves, offer new sauce, and have color coded utensils to ensure new cross contamination. They also cook the pizza on a special mat to ensure it doesn’t get contaminated while baking. I’ve eaten here a handful of times and have never gotten ill. They also have goat cheese! It’s fantastic to have a quality pizza place!

    Blaze Pizza in Des Moines has changed their practices, and now can accommodate gluten-free dietary needs. The dough is kept on a red mat throughout the process. Their is a dedicated gluten-free marinara sauce and pizza cutter. All of the meats and cheeses are gluten free except for the meatballs. There is also a dedicated gluten-free pizza cutter. Can’t beat $11 for unlimited toppings. Their lemonade is also fantastic. I love Blaze!!

    They are proactive about asking if it's an allergy or preference, so they know to change gloves. The gf crust is pressed on a different pizza press and placed on a separate cooking tray to try and minimize cross contamination. I've never had any issues.

    I normally give only positive reviews, and I had high hopes for my visit. This location does offer a gluten free pizza crust but their setup does not allow for safe preparation. The Subway-style assembly line means everything is cross contaminated, the staff is severely undertrained in the area of food allergies, and the way they stack the unbaked pizzas (on top of each other) means wheat flour can (and does) fall on top of gluten free crusts. I admit, I should have gone with my gut when I finally made it to the front of the line, but I was very hungry and it clouded my thinking. I was “glutened” —that is to say, I was sick after eating here. This would be a fine place for non-Celiacs and/or non-food allergic individuals, but if you live with either (for your own safety), stay away.

    Didn’t get sick. They get sauce from a different container. They get the toppings from underneath counter as the regular toppings. Had to ask for a different person to open all the doors to this area so the person handling toppings didn’t get my pizza cc. They use a mat under gf pizza in oven. I also requested clean pizza cutter and watched at the cutting bar. They do make a good pizza.

    They use the same sauce/spoon for the gluten free pizza as they do For the wheat crust. When my husband and i went they put his sauce on his pizza spread it around with the spoon on the crust. Then did the same thing to mine with while using the same sauce and spoon. I asked for a gluten free crust and then ended up getting grabbing a crust from from the same area where my husbands crust was. I asked about it being gluten free and she had to go back to another area to grab the gluten free crust. The gluten free crust is no sealed and really separate from the flour crusts. They are in the same open area. Also the pizzas go in the same fire brick oven and your pizza is right next to a flour pizza. They also do not change pizza cutters (at least when I was there they didn't) and cut the gluten free pizza with the same cutter and the flour pizza. None of them did glove changes

    My pizza was mishandled/contaminated ,gloves were not changed and then said he did everything right. I have Celiacs and had eaten there before but thankfully watched before getting sick so I must say NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY. Gave it a second chance 04/18. Employee looked upset at dealing with CD. He seemed to go out of way to contaminate it. He was Happy when I canceled order. He had a horrible attitude. Might be good pizza but they don’t try to accommodate CD

    When I went, there was flour all over the place. It was on the counters, the cash register, everywhere! They have gf crust in the back, but when I ordered, she used the same gloves that touched all the floury counters to hold my pan. I cancelled our orders. They are clueless. The older dude who was firing pizzas was a jerk.

    Although they prepared my pizza in the back area away from the other ingredients, the pizza cutter station was not adequately prepared. The same area was used to cut my pizza, although with a separate cutter, however their was too much cross contamination and I became very sick.

    Loved it! They ask whether your gluten-free is a preference or an allergy, and as I just have a sensitivity I opted for preference. They have a separate pizza press for gluten-free dough, and they cook it on a special pizza board. They will change gloves as well if needed. The pizza is very good and I love coming here knowing that I can have a solid gluten-free, dairy-free meal!

    This is one of the gluten sensitive places I've ever visited. They have gluten free dough which is prepared using separate equipment than the standard dough. When placing your order they explicitly ask if you'd like a glove change to prevent cross contamination from previous orders. They will assign one person to prepare the order rather than the traditional assembly line this way no one without the new gloves is helping you. Prior to placement in the oven (which is used with the other orders), they will set the GF order on a great resistant pad (I don't know the material). This provides a buffer between the GF pizza and the otherwise cross contaminated oven surface. After cooking it is record from said pad with dedicated GF serving utensils before being given to the customer. Good good and very considerate workers!

    Definitely not celiac friendly, but for those who are simply intolerant and aren’t as concerned about cross-contamination, this is a good tasty option for a crispy thin crust (non-Udi’s) pizza. They do offer to change gloves, and the crust is placed on a special mat of some sort before going in the oven. But there’s a lot of contamination with the handling of the toppings.

    Sadly had a terrible experience at this blaze pizza. They attempted to make me a gluten free pizza 3 times and each time cross contaminating the pizza in front of me. Using the wrong sauce, cutting the pizza with the wrong utensils, having another pizza land on top of my pizza. After the 3rd time I gave up and just asked for a refund. I have previously had good experiences at other Blazes but have not had the urge to trust trying them again. Please please watch your pizza at all times to make sure mistakes are not made.

    I told them gluten free and they changed their gloves for me, but there is a sign right where you order telling you that GF dough is made on the same equipment. I decided to give it a chance despite the sign because my sister eats at another location and never gets sick. The pizza is cooked on some kind of rubber sheet to prevent cross contamination in the oven, which is good...but I'm so sick now (a few hours later) I can't believe it. I don't recommend this place if you're celiac or cannot handle cross contamination!

    I know that there is cross-contamination possibility in large pizza-oven restaurants, but I did not get sick, so for ME that is what counts I had the Best GF pizza here - maybe my best ever, including what I make at home (have tried so many recipes! ). They flatten GF DOUGH at Blaze, instead of using a frozen crist. What a difference ! First of all, I could pick up a slice of pizza and it came free, didn't have to be sawed away from the rest of the pie. The middle/ tip of the slice was cooked! not gooey. Best of all, the crust edge actually was crisp and made a wonderful delicate "crunch" sound when I bit through it.I had forgotten that pizza crust could do that. I complimented and thanked the manager. I know they cannot guarantee a GF result, with all the wheat dough around, hence 4 stars - for others to keep in mind. But for me, it was a 5.
