Very new to being gluten free and still have a lot of anxiety around eating out and risking being glutened. I feel truly safe eating here. They are very careful and their gluten free pizzas are delicious.

They have a dedicated area for GF pizza, which I appreciate, but I will have to say that after paying a premium price ($19) for a 10", the pizza was disappointing. I'll try again, but that's my first experience and impression.

Two positive experiences eating the gf Margherita pizza with two gf people. Kitchen manager came out to introduce himself. They're GIG trained and certified, and take good allergies very seriously. The pizza is very good. Chose the least amount of toppings to lessen the cross contam risk.

They have now been gig trained and I love the pizza they have great options. They also will make any pizza on gluten free crust but those ones have a chance of cross contamination. I wish they made the gig pizza for frozen that would be great to see in store.

I have been diagnosed with Celiacs Disease, so choosing to eat gluten-free isn't a trend for me but rather a medical necessity in order to avoid the negative effects on my intestine and consequent miserable symptoms associated with ingesting gluten. I had visited this restaurant as I was staying in the area for a work-related conference. I had thought this would be a great place as I was made aware of their gluten-free menu. I ordered two items off the menu (both of which were labelled 'gluten-free' and made the server aware of the importance of the items being gluten-free due to my celiacs disease. After eating both so-called 'gluten-free' items at the restaurant.... I immediately started to feel very ill as all my symptoms started to return. This was completely disappointing... Despite the meal I ordered being labeled 'gluten-free', it clearly was not (or had cross-contamination) and I ended up suffering for the next couple of days as a result. I will obviously not return to this restaurant, and will also caution others who require a gluten-free diet to stay away from this place as well.

Had the margarita pizza on cauliflower crust, it was so good! They asked if it was an allergy too! My pizza was around $17.99 and then +$2.50 for the cauliflower crust. Very affordable if you share!

Normally I would not eat here, but I was desperate. I have eaten the brand’s frozen cauliflower crusts at home before without issue.

I ordered online and specified I had celiac - gluten issue. Got the sausage mushroom pepperoni cauliflower crust pizza before a flight that was leaving soon. Did not get sick! Nothing is labeled on the menu, I went solely based on knowledge from the frozen pizzas and it worked out.

They have cauliflower crust for pizzas. Can’t confirm if they took precautions to cook in separate oven, or if other ingredients are GF as well.

It seems as though their kitchen has started slipping. I was gluttened last night after going to this location for over two years. My meal came out for the first time without a gluten free marker. Be very careful!
