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.

The staff there is hit or miss. One time I went in, they were very good with my instructions. They changed gloves and used different utensils. There is no separate oven.

The crust is thin, but very enjoyable. However, it is very, very greasy when it comes out of the oven. The overall pizza was good. You cn also ask for no crotons on the salad, and they don't put on the dressing themselves. It comes in a little container.

Perhaps I encountered the wrong worker, but he seemed clueless about gluten free needs. When I told him cross contamination was an issue, he didn’t understand that sauce, cheese, and toppings needed to come from new containers. He also kept asking other workers to make my pizza and moving other customers’ pizza ahead of mine before finally doing it himself. The taste was good but customer service had much room for improvement.

Update 9/9/19: Now giving 4 stars. Since this initial review, this has become our go to place for pizza. Also, if you go on a day that Garrett is working, he will take extra good care of your order. He has a Celiac mother so he understands CC first hand. If he is able, he will handle your pizza from start to finish.

There was quite a bit of miscommunication amongst the staff with our three GF pizzas and one rude worker so that didn't help make our first visit there very nice. The manager ended up handling our order but it was a debacle! The pizza is very good and a good size (12"). They changed gloves for us and had a designated handler. They only offer premade salads in the cooler and they were clueless about whether the dressings were GF, even the manager. Another disappointment. We chose to get a Caesar salad and they happily changed out the dressing to balsamic vinaigrette at my request. The salad had been packaged with croutons but they were in a separate section that I removed. I was ready to sit down at that point and didn't let it bother me. Pizza is probably worth a 4 -5 stars but the service and salad situation was a deterrent for sure.

GF crust is great and we have never had an issue with cross contamination. My only complaint is that it costs an extra $2 for GF crust.

Absolutely fantastic. The staff was very knowledgeable and more than willing to change gloves and be careful with cross contamination. They cooked the gluten free pizza in a separate oven and had a different tray to cut. Great staff. Taste amazing! The best gluten free pizza I’ve had so far.

Our church youth group stopped here recently. I happened to be in line right behind our one student who has celiac disease. As soon as John asked for gluten-free crust, the young man helping him said, "Do you want a glove change with that?" and the prep guy immediately started cleaning the surface where they prepare the crust. The manager told me later that they pride themselves in serving customers with special dietary needs and that the young man who helped us was a new employee. I was impressed that a new employee would be so well-versed in gluten-free options. Plus the pizza came out fast and was delicious!

Very knowledgeable and courteous. They took my GF pizza very seriously. Separate sauces and a huge variety of toppings. I had the spinach, tomato and zucchini! It was phenomenal. Will go back again and again.

This is hands down the best gluten free pizza I have ever had!!! They have dedicated sauces so the risk of cross contamination is very little and the staff is highly educated on allergies and takes fantastic care! We have never been made to feel bad because we have a large allergy order. We love it here!!!

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.

Staff VERY knowledgeable and supportive of celiac. Separate cutter,trays for baking. Changed gloves. If they didn’t do this it would not be as good.
