My son was recently diagnosed with Celiac, so I went into this particular blaze because my niece (who is celiac) said the franchise is very careful about cross contamination. I wanted to see how they handle the seriousness of celiac. Unfortunately, this particular one was not. Gloves were changed and a special silicone pad was used on the board, but that felt like the extent of it. Although my paper was labeled for an allergy, the employee was about to use the same sauce she used on the line of regular crusts before. When I asked if she had a sauce for people with allergies, she said yes. Then she proceeded to put all the same toppings that had been used on all the regular pizzas on mine. Finally, when the pizza came out of the oven, they used the same pizza cutter that they had been using on all the regular pizzas. I was so disappointed. I definitely do not feel safe recommending this Blaze unless you are ready to be vocal at every step of the process. If you are just intolerant to gluten, it’s probably ok. But for someone with Celiac, I would be very cautious at this Blaze.

We have been here twice. Both times they they understood celiac and changed their gloves without being asked. Was able to let us know what was safe and was not. Enjoyed the pizza and didn't get sick. Will go back again!

We called ahead and they said they do gluten free pizza but upon further inspection they use the same dough smasher thing without cleaning so no matter what there is cross contamination. Couldn’t even eat a salad because they use their hands to grab ingredients so there is cross contamination there too. Ate elsewhere

I have to be very careful of cross contamination when I eat here. They use the same spoons, pizza cutters, gloves, etc. for all of their pizzas, gluten free or not. While their gf crust selection is nice, the cross contamination is hard to avoid.

I would not recommend this restaurant for celiac. Lots of cross contamination opportunities. They did change their gloves but used the same tools and area to cut pizza. Plus the GF crust is very chewy.
