Not celiac friendly. They took precautions with my food but I still got sick. Too much cross contamination risks here.

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. They seemed to start trying but today they reaffirmed they are NOT GLUTEN FREE!!07/13/2019. Personally watched them cross contaminate. It’s their place. If that was the manager, he sure just doesn’t care

I am gluten sensitive and I do not have Celiac’s Disease. I order the gluten-free crust every time at several of the Blaze locations and it is the best gluten-free pizza crust I have ever tasted. Thin, crispy and delicious...as good as any pizza I have had in Italy.

You have to be VERY watchful here. I’ve been able to eat here on occasion but the cross contamination risk is very high. I’ve had other pizzas accidentally half on top of my gluten free, wrong utensils used and a number of problems. I have had a similar issue with this at other locations. I would not recommend eating here.

Separate sauce, changed gloves, took care to ensure no cross contamination while making the gluten free pizza. It tasted really good, too. They cook the pizza on a separate pad so it doesn't come in contact with the same oven base or item used to take it out of the oven.

Blaze is really great here with changing gloves and separate sauce for the gluten free pizzas. Only thing I would suggest is to watch your pizza when they are cooking it/bringing it out of the oven. On one occasion a gluten pizza landed slightly on top of my pizza and I had to ask them to remake it. Manager completely apologized and gave me a free pizza coupon, but just make sure to watch for that. But I've eaten here a number of times with no symptoms and i'm pretty sensitive. They make a really good crispy crust and I love adding Zucchini to my pizza.

Blaze Pizza in Sarasota has quickly become one of our favorites. The pizza is really good and not only do they provide GF crust but also offer many toppings to choose from that are also GF. They offer vegan and non-dairy cheese which is a must for me. The staff is very acccomodating and this is almost a weekly stop for us that fits in our budget.

Tastes amazing but the safety is really dependent on the employee preparing your food. Some care and some don’t. It is a shared oven as well so never completely safe. They try (some of the time)

I’m gf intolerant and usually very sensitive to cross contamination, but I have gotten the gf pizza from here multiple times and have not had any issues. At times, the gf dough isn’t cooked right and the pizza ends up being bendy, but it does always taste good. There are multiple gf crust options: the normal cauliflower option and the vegan/gf option (which i normally get). Usually I order pickup so I don’t see people preparing so there may be times of minute cross contamination that I may not be sensitive to.

I love eating here! They offer gluten free crusts (vegan, and cauliflower). They also change their gloves to avoid cross-contamination.
