Pizza was good until I got severely ill. May not be cross contaminated while making, however once it’s in the oven it’s fair game as it’s touching everywhere normal pizza is fired.

Don’t eat here! I got such attitude on the gluten free ask. The girl was so put out that she didn’t even get the toppings from a clean container. I paid for the pizza and threw it out. I will never go there again!!

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

First time customer, asked for Gluten Free crust and was told they had THREE!

**** THEY LIED ****

Rep told me one of their GF crusts was made “in-house” and was GF and Vegan.

Thin pizza delivered to table, Within first few bites, I doubted it was GF (it tasted too good).

I went back to the counter to verify, and was told it was definitely GF.

I checked my receipt, “Classic Crust”, did NOT specify GF.

I then asked “How do you know this is GF?” And was told it was because he made it himself. Again, “How do you KNOW the crust is GF?”. They said they could tell because it looked different. I could see other crusts, bubbling in the oven, so I continued to eat half of the pizza that tasted “too good”

Sure enough, within 24hours I was doubled over in abdominal pain and diarrhea which last three more days, compounded with joint pain, headache, and dizziness.

I contacted their Corporate customer service … who STILL have not answered HOW can a customer verify they receive GF?

Instead I was offered a “free pizza if you provide your Blaze Pizza rewards info”

… this is the MOST gluten I have been exposed to since diagnoses in 2010. I was traveling, and had to get a hotel until I could continue 8 hour drive home.

Being LIED to about food containing allergens is UNACCEPTIBLE

This franchise should be avoided AT ALL COSTS!!!

Before I was gluten free, I was a huge Blaze Pizza fan! Went here for the first time in a long time the other night and now have to eat gluten free. I asked about their options and they had a couple crusts you could choose from. They said they would change gloves, and had ingredients below the counter they could use to avoid cross contamination. I'm not sure if they did change gloves or not (I was distracted for a minute), but they did *not* end up using ingredients under the counter. They said most of their toppings were gluten-free anyway, so there shouldn't have been much, if any, issue. But the biggest problem I saw was they cut my pizza with the same cutter they use on every other pizza. I didn't complain because I hated to waste an entire pizza, and honestly, I wasn't sure how much I would react to a little cross contamination. I was hoping it would be ok. My pizza was absolutely delicious. The crust I got tasted just like normal crust. But within a few hours of getting home, I was sick the entire night. I should have been more vigilant about making sure they made my pizza correctly. I won't make that mistake again.

The gluten free pizza here is good, but don't expect anything to be without cross contamination. They might pull from down below if you ask - some staff did and some didn't. Some staff changed gloves and some didn't. This is conveyer belt pizza, kind of like Chipotle. So multiple people are touching your food, making quality control around GF pretty difficult. They have a dedicated pizza cutter that they then placed on non GF pizza pans - so that's not quite meeting the mark. The crust is also very thin, so expect to order more than you normally would. Celiacs should beware. I managed with only a headache afterwards but someone more sensitive definitely would have been sick.

They noted “glove change” on my order.

This pizza was amazing!!! I would definitely recommend Blaze and would go again! They noted glove change on my order. I got the garlic pesto sauce, and it was excellent!

Staff (manager) changed gloves, use dedicated utensils and took sauce from separate containers. Toppings GF except meatballs. Crust was the weak point, so list a star. Didn’t get sick and toppings delicious.

Delicious pizza - loved that they immediately offered to change gloves when I ordered GF crust. Plus they had a separate container for sauce for GF to avoid cross contamination with other sauce and utensils. They also got my toppings from containers under the counter to further avoid cross contamination. Great service!

Very good pizza but definitely cross contamination with regular dough products. Not ideal for those with severe sensitivity.

I was sad when zpizza closed...but then I found this place. I was pleasantly surprised when I ordered a gluten free pizza and saw them take out actual gluten free pizza dough! No shells here! They have a press they use when flattening out the dough, and they cleaned it thoroughly before using it. The staff all changed their gloves when informed of a gluten allergy, used dedicated utensils, and everyone was very knowledgeable about which ingredients and toppings were GF. But best of all, the pizza was SO GOOD. Instead of using one of those conveyor belt ovens like Pie Five or zpizza would use, they use a real oven (flames and all), and you can taste the difference. This might be one of the best GF pizzas I've ever had.

I really enjoyed this place. When ordering the gluten free pizza they asked if I needed them to do a glove change. The pizza was really good! I'll be back for sure! (I do not have celiac and they do stress that there can be some cross contamination for those who are celiac, so be careful depending on your needs).

Awesome gluten free pizza!!!! They have gluten free dough and you can use it to build your own pizza with unlimited toppings for the same price. Gluten free dough costs $3 extra but it is still $10.95 for a good sized personal pizza (too much for a single person to eat all at once.) If you get the "high rise" with extra dough, it becomes the BEST gluten free pizza ever! They use shared oven and toppings but will change gloves. (I am not celiac, but have not been sick.)

They always do glove changes for my two celiac kids. One has a dairy allergy too and they have never gotten sick!

Typically staff will comply with a glove change and use separate utensils and ingredients from below, but I've had a couple of instances where I've communicated my intolerance and staff have looked me in the face and asked "Is it ok if I don't actually accommodate" or "do you actually need this"? Needless to say, I got sick. More recently even when they followed protocol I still got glutenated.

Good experience here - person who took order made the person who made my GF crust pizza change gloves, and they used a special mat under the pizza in the oven. But of course he had the usual “we cannot guarantee …” disclaimer. No GF dessert options though.

Don’t trust this place!!!! SO MUCH CROSS CONTAMINATION it’s a nightmare. And if you tell them it’s an allergy: prepare for a staff temper tantrum. Unreal. I threw my pizza away rather than risk getting sick.

Pizza was great however, cross contamination has me nervous. I saw the employee handling regular dough hand the gal that was going to make my GF pizza the black liner. I called it out and asked to please have a glove change with a new liner. They did it with no questions asked. Gal got sauce from a different area. All seemed great. Then the employee that got my pizza out of the oven placed my pizza down. When he moved it the black liner wasn't completely covering the table where part of my pizza was placed. Unfortunately, I will be the next test subject of possible cross contamination at Blaze Pizza.
