Review


I was very nervous to eat here but tried it at the recommendation of someone with celiac. The staff were amazing and extremely cautious. They changed gloves, the same person made my whole pizza and used brand new ingredients. My pizza was on a separate mat and was cut with a clean cutter but another staff member who changed her gloves. Pizza was still made in the same oven and there is still a risk of cross contamination. I don’t feel completely glutened but a tiny bit off. But I really am surprised how careful they were and how well I feel under the circumstances. The GF crust was a little chewy in the middle. I would be curious to try the cauliflower crust.

Ordered the gluten free pizza, they were very careful about cross contamination and cooked the pizza on a clean paddle with a little mat on top dedicated for gluten free pizzas. They also changed their gloves. The pizza itself wasn't bad but the crust was very doughy and I'm wondering if they underbaked it or if that's how the gluten free crust is? Next time I will try the cauliflower crust.

Fair amount of options, they have 3 “gluten free” bases, but one is not gf? They have a gluten free dough, which I assume is are in house on shared equipment and pressed with their same dough press, so it is NOT SAFE (it is not labeled with the ‘gf’ on the menu, I did not actually ask them about this). They also have a cauliflower crust (which I got) and a “keto crust” which was marked gf. I’m not sure what that is made from. They cook the gf crusts on a specific pan-thing so it doesn’t touch the oven. They will change gloves if it’s an allergy. The ingredients are still just in a big line like at a chipotle etc., so there is a pretty decent risk of cc I assume. I noticed when they put on the sauce, they spread it with the spoon, as it typical of pizza, which made me nervous. It is possible that they would get fresh ingredients on request, but I did not ask. The got a clean pizza cutter when I asked. It is several hours later and I have yet to get any issues (beyond those from eating a whole pizza). They do not have the ingredients listed for whether they are gf or not, so I avoided any sausage etc. Pizza was pretty good, so if you aren’t super sensitive, or feel confident in your ability to guide pizza makers through the process of being safe, have at it. I will probably go again, but more as an option when people insist on getting pizza than a go-to place.

With the mixed reviews, I asked a ton of questions before ordering and watched very carefully. They asked me if it was preference or allergy. All toppings were from a new container and the employee changed gloves after touching each container. The gluten-free pizzas go on their own mat and in a specific part of the oven. They have a specific gluten free pizza cutter and utensils as well. I was very happy with the gluten-free crust as well! As a new celiac, I could barely tell the difference.

I went in and asked if they could make the gluten free pizzas allergy safe and avoid cross contamination. they said yes of course and changed their gloves but then used all the toppings from the same place they get it for all of their pizzas and you could visibly see flour and crumbs on the toppings and saw them using the tongs touching gluten pizzas. i’ve eaten there before after doing online pickup and didn’t feel any notable pain but I definitely regret doing that knowing what I do now.

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