I have celiac disease. It's nice having three crust options, and they have protocols to protect against cross contamination, like GF crusts go in a pan before the oven and a separate cutting station, but follow your pizza down the toppings line. Someone almost cross contaminated mine if I hadn't stopped them, and they gave me attitude about it.

Mine took twice as long as everyone else, and still seemed a little undercooked.

I don’t have celiac and understand eating out at non-dedicated facilities carries some risk, but I’m rarely so uncomfortable with the environment that I consider not eating my food, like I was here. I’ve been to other Blaze locations and had a fine experience, but they made my pizza right on the line, only changes gloves because I asked, and would have used the same knife to cut it had I not been paying attention and stopped them. Could have just been an off night as they were pretty busy, but exercise caution.

The staff were knowledgeable about gluten free but didn’t do much to avoid cross contamination. Using the same utensils.

I loved the pizza I got. They automatically assumed to change gloves and put the crust in a tin when I said gluten free crust as well

Great thin crust gluten free pizza - lifesaving for my Drexel student. Not greasy- she loves it and she’s super picky. Plenty of topping choices.

Although they prepared my pizza in the back area away from the other ingredients, the pizza cutter station was not adequately prepared. The same area was used to cut my pizza, although with a separate cutter, however their was too much cross contamination and I became very sick.

I’ve had mixed experiences here, they’re great about grabbing ingredients from under the counter to avoid cc, but the last steps are iffy. The pizza got very close to the others in the oven and was used maneuvered by the same spatula. It sits on its own mat, but the chance of cc is still close. Once it’s out of the oven, I would request for a change of gloves, a clean slicer, and for the staff to slice the pizza in a designated area.

The two people working while I was visiting were AMAZING! I explained it was my first time there, and asked if the pizza would be prepared safely. They got my crust from the back, as well as brought out a red sauce from the back to not cross contaminate. They also made sure not to get meat on my pizza because I explained to them it is Lent for me. Overall, great experience.

New location! Great staff and good service. The gluten-free crust is good and the build your own is a very reasonable price. (Severe Celiac)

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.
