I have ordered GF Pizza from this restaurant twice once in person and once ordered via DoorDash with my son who has celiac and we have been happy both times. Thank you for being diligent in making sure everything is gluten-free and celiac friendly. The GF pizza and also the cauliflower crust pizza are both delicious.

They ask if it’s an allergy or preference and do change gloves but that’s where it stops. Same utensils for sauce and toppings, then they put it directly on the same cooking surface as the regular crust. From there it gets pulled out and cut on the same surface using the same slicer. I’ll be sick I’m sure.

I’ve eaten there 20+ times and haven’t gotten sick. They change their gloves and use separate cutters, etc. It sometimes looks a little sketchy... just with them using shared surfaces, but they have the GF pizza on a mat so it’s supposedly safe

I've been there twice, first time was amazing, they kept everything separate, asked if I needed gloves changed, all the standard stuff when you've got a celiac in your building. My second time today was a little more lax, and me, being naive and with my guard down, didn't pay as much attention, but the warning signs were all there that I should have been more careful. There was a new guy who really wasn't paying attention, kept trying to do stuff with my pizza and not respecting the GF crust. Well I still ate it, felt pretty foggy shortly after starting and knew something was off. I took the rest home and tested it in my Nima Gluten tester and it turned up positive for gluten. I'm really disappointed because they are great tasty pizza, but 50/50 chance of getting gluten is not a good time. It's a great place, you just gotta watch them like a hawk and remember there is flour flying all over the place. I'd call it gluten sensitive safe, not celiac safe.

GF pizzas are on the menu, however the flour is flying and the “GF” pizzas are cooked in the same ovens as the gluten pizzas. Cross contamination is guaranteed.

I let them know it was an allergy and the woman making my pizza took precautions (wore gloves, used fresh spoon for sauce) but there’s real no way to completely avoid cross contact here. I have celiac and haven’t gotten sick here before, but it’s definitely risky! There’s no GF way to get the pesto base (it’s a paintbrush), and you probably need to remind the guy who takes it out of the oven to do a glove change/use a new cutter/etc. Blaze also has vegan options/multiple gf crusts to pick from.

I have been to a few Blaze Pizza’s around the country and this is probably my least favorite. Staff seems disinterested and upset when they have to change their gloves. They still cross contaminate items even thought it is an allergy (same sauce bucket as regular pizzas, each that staff member that works on the pizza doesn’t change gloves). The atmosphere is chaotic and I usually feel a little sick after eating here. Won’t be going back to this location. I recommend giving one in another city a try!

The website says they take precautions but the person who was taking orders said they just changed gloves. I asked if they would open fresh toppings. She asked the supervisor who said they would make it in thef back with all fresh stuff. The food is cooked in the same oven as tall pizzas. You also have to ask them not to cut the pizza or they might just use the used cutters

The only pizza I consider worth eating in the area! I think the secret to good GF pizza is fresh dough and a pizza oven- which Blaze uses. They’re also great about changing gloves, making sure your GF dough is on a clean surface, and using separate sauce (though I did have to ask for this once- no big deal). Super sensitive to CC and so far I’ve never been sick. So good!

Person who took my order was knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination, and told me very honestly that he could not guarantee GF because of the flour in the air. I ordered salad and he kindly made it in the back with fresh salad trays. I saw my son’s GF pizza taken out of the oven and put on the counter with part of its crust overlapping a regular gluten pizza. I would say keep an eye on your pizza if you order a GF one.

Offers three different types of gf pizza crust, but oh-so-very cross-contaminated!!!! You can watch your pizza go down the line and see how many times it is cross-contaminated. Staff taking orders could not explain difference between 3 crusts, had to call over manager, who did, but did not get toppings or sauces from the back. The 2 gf pies in our order were pushed to the back of the oven to be further cross-contaminated, and one so badly burnt it was unedible. They replaced the burnt pizza, but that won't make us any less sick.

The staff were very accommodating and immediately asked if I wanted a glove change. They have 3 (!!!) different types of GF pizza dough (regular GF, keto, and cauliflower). I got the regular GF crust and made my own pizza. Price was okay, a bit on the expensive side for fast casual but definitely worth it. Such a good option for delicious and safe GF pizza! So many toppings to choose from.

I would not eat at this location if you have celiac. They DID NOT use a dedicated dough press. They did get a dry paper towel and brush off all the flour that was on the dough press but when I asked if that was all they do to clean it, they said it was the best they could do. They were good about washing their hands, getting new gloves. They told me they use clean utensils and keep everything separate. However, as soon as they started using the same dough press I was out and not risking it. I’m so happy I didn’t call in my order and I went in to watch them make it. Be careful if considering eating here!

They offer Gf crust but that’s about it. There was Gluten everywhere! Even with a glove change there is still traces of gluten in the cheese and all the toppings. They are supposed to cook the Gf pizza on a separate tray in the oven but our pizza was deliberately taken off the GF tray to finish cook the center. Unfortunately this is not an option for celiacs period.

They have had to remake my pizza all 3 times I've visited because they don't understand when I tell them I have an allergy. I guess it's my fault for going back 3 times... They say that they can accommodate but then I watch them use all sorts of contaminated utensils if you don't hover and be an asshole customer because I don't want to be sick... But it is good pizza, once they've made it for the third time after contaminating the first 2

Mixed review. Pizza was good, I didn’t get noticeably glutened, and they were extremely busy after a football game. While they were aware of gluten precautions, I had to be watching and asking for them to be carried out. They did clean the dough press and used separate gloves in preparation. When it was cooling there was a liner under it to prevent cross contamination. Then at the end, they used the same tongs as everyone else’s to put the pizza on a plate. So, you either do it or you don’t, execution needs to be better.

Blaze Pizza can accommodate gluten-free dietary needs. The dough is kept on a red/Black mat throughout the process. There is a dedicated gluten-free marinara sauce and pizza cutter. All of the meats and cheeses are gluten free except for the meatballs. There is also a dedicated gluten-free pizza cutter. Blaze offers build your own but they now charge for the GF dough. Their lemonade is also fantastic. There have been times though where I have to monitor the entire process to ensure there is no cross-contamination.

Two recent visits in past month. First time the dedicated prep area was used and all precautions taken. The second visit, the employee said she had Celiac herself so I was excited (I knew I would get a cc free pizza). I watched in amazement to see that she started using the general prep area and then I asked for clean utensils and the separate allergy prep area that was used the last time. I felt like I was a burden. None the less, I have to protect my kid who has Celiac. I watched it prepped and had to intervene twice for safe practices. First visit 5 stars, second visit 3

Had a delicious pizza here at Blaze. Staff was nice and very accommodating to my gluten free diet. The girl making my order changed her gloves and put my pizza on a gluten sensitive mat to cook. I had the cauliflower crust and it was wonderful and perfectly crispy on the outside and still chewy inside. (Warning: cauliflower crust contains cheese) But there are 2 other other gluten sensitive crust to check out. The condiments and sauce were tasty. The only thing off is that they had no salt and pepper. Just salt and oregano. Which was odd. But everything else was still good.

As someone with Celiac, I would say that it is risky to eat here. Nevertheless I did, and it was delicious, and I didn't get sick. Staff seem knowledgeable about contamination issues and try their best to minimize the risk. They change their gloves and clean the pizza dough roller prior to rolling out the gluten free dough. They also have a few choices of dough including a keto dough. They also keep the pizza on other own silicone-like mat, so that in the oven it doesn't come in contact with what the other pizzas rest on. If you have celiac, I would say use your best judgement, I'm pretty sensitive but had no issues here.

They offer Both a cauliflower crust And a regular gluten-free crust. They put a red sticker on your order showing that it is gluten-free. They change their gloves and they have a dedicated gluten-free sauce so that it doesn’t touch the other sauce that has touched the regular pizza dough. The texture and flavor of the gluten-free dough is very very good. This restaurant is comparable to MOD Pizza. But given the choice over both of them I would choose blaze Pizza.

I had the white top pizza on a GF crust and it was delicious! Very flavorful. I also experienced great customer service. I gave five stars because of the great taste and service, and I didn’t have any reactions after eating here. I am celiac and pretty sensitive so I think this is safe. However, I will tell you that there is a high risk of cross-contamination and that could worry some people. I was worried, too, until I saw the number of precautions they take. I asked the girl who took my order if she would change her gloves before handling my crust. She very willingly agreed and wrote “glove change” on my order. The guy who actually handles my crust not only changed his gloves but also cleaned the press they use to shape the crust. And he had a special mat to cover the wooden board they use for baking the crusts. Every person who touched my pizza changed their gloves. And the guy who cut it used a GF cutter, clearly marked with a red handle.

Gluten free press is down and they were going to clean with salt and a paper towel. I explained that this isn’t safe for food allergies and soap and water is the only way to prevent contamination. Manager was consulted (who never left the back) and I heard him yell through that it would ruin the plates to use anything but salt and a paper towel. I said, “No thanks!” and walked out. Will not return. They have no clue about true food allergies here!!

Worst quick-service pizza place I've been to. And unlike Fresh brothers and Pizza Rev, they don't care about taking allergy precautions. Cross-contamination Central! Hard pass for me... Unless they start being aware that if they offer gluten free pizza, it needs to actually be gluten free. Otherwise it's just a different kind of crust.

They are great with. Being careful about CEO’s contamination. They ask if it’s an allergy and they change their gloves. The sauce is covered and separate. They have vegan cheese, great for me since I am dairy free also. The pizza itself is not that great. But it takes care of a craving when I want a pizza.

They don’t make a celiac friendly pizza at Blaze Pizza. They told me it’s “Gluten Friendly” - they physically touch tools and pans to wheat pizzas and then use them on the gluten “free” pizza. It shouldn’t even be on the menu, NOT SAFE for celiac, something they themselves should be up front with. IMO, this is a BAD company, making people sick by thoughtlessly calling their pizza “gluten free”

I explained the severity of my allergy to the first person who started making my pizza and had the entire cook line change their gloves. They asked me if i needed my pizza fired away from the other pizzas and they put my pizza on a special mat to avoid cross contamination. They kept my pizza paper separate from all the others and even used a separate CLEAN pizza cutter for my pizza. Great experience!
