They had many gluten free toppings but never changed their gloves or utensils when handling my food after touching other pizzas

Great staff!! Asked for gluten free crust and they clarified it was an allergy. Cooked crust on different area, changed gloves and were very attentive. Pizza was delicious 🤩

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.

Good food. Asked if it was an allergy and whether gloves should be changed, but they used the same pizza cutter.

While Blaze as a chain offers GF options, and some locations may have good protocols, I would not trust this particular location AT ALL. They are always understaffed, randomly closed some days due to staffing. Sometimes they will only accept online orders. Sometimes they turn online ordering off. It can take an hour sometimes to get a pizza there. I hardly trust them to make a gluten-full pizza correctly and not burn it… definitely wouldn’t trust them to take the care needed for GF. Until this place gets better management, I would avoid it!

The staff will get ingredients from a new container and change gloves if you ask. Keep in mind that the pizzas are made assembly line style so there is a chance for cross contamination.

I don’t recommend blaze if you have severe celiac… some of the staff isn’t trained properly so it can make things a little complicated. I’ve gotten sick from here before, and also been told they only had the ingredients available on the line (which is highly contaminated), but was told on a separate occasion they could use all dress ingredients… I don’t recommend
