Gf items marked and gf crust available. Definitely not the best gf pizza I’ve had, but I didn’t get sick so I was happy about that!

I get sick every time I eat here despite explaining to them how to avoid cross contact and contamination. I wouldn’t recommend to celiacs

Great pizza! Menu items are labeled but the pizza options are not. Ask your server which toppings on which pizzas need to be excluded to be safe - they have a knowledgeable staff. You can even do half and half pizza toppings! I was assured that the prep area and baking area were safe from cross contamination.

Never had an issue with this place, but be clear that it is an allergy and they inform the kitchen as such. I do pickup all the time. Great safe pizza but pricey

My visit was a disaster but I would absolutely try again just based on their reaction. First, the good: everyone I talked to was able to clearly explain all precautions they take, especially of note: prepackaged crusts, separate prep area, dedicated oven. Our server understood when I said I was celiac and flagged our pizza as such. Later I discovered our server was supposed to double check our order before it came to the table.

The bad: the system broke in two spots during our visit. The kitchen misread the ticket and prepared a gluten pizza. Our pizza was not delivered by our server, but by a runner, and the runner was gone before I could confirm the gluten free status. My friend had eaten here many times (not gluten free) and said the pizza looked different from what she normally gets, so we started.

Once our server came out, we discovered it wasn’t gluten free. He was extremely apologetic and seemed to take it personally that he hadn’t checked it (he was with another table). His manager was confused as to how this happened because they have worked hard to ensure it doesn’t. It could be a load of crap of course, but I would try this place again. This was not your standard “lol we screwed up” event (unless our server and the manager are both sociopaths) and I got the impression that they would absolutely be going back over gluten free procedures. Our server asked if there was anything he personally could do to help me. We were not charged for our meal, and if we hadn’t been on the clock to get supplies, I probably would have left him a tip.

(Ranked poor for taste of gf items but only because we didn’t taste it)

Adding a note: confirmed they use a separate oven for their GF pizza I’m impressed by the options on the menu: the wings and fries are amazing and GF :). Might want to verify if your sauce pick for the wings is GF. The GF pizza crust didn’t knock my socks off, but being celiac I’ve lowered my standards. The toppings were great, and the staff immediately took my restriction seriously. Also the cookie dough sundae has a GF option and it’s amazing!

I tried the Harvester as a gluten free calzone and while very flavorful. The crust was very, very dry. It seemed all the pesto ended up on one side and the edge was a little overcooked. It was so dry I started coughing, which made lots of people state at me worriedly (I'm assuming because of COVID-19). I'm withholding judgement until I return and try it as a pizza where the sauce would be spread throughout. To get through the meal, I utilized the marinara sauce they provided with the calzone but will probably never order a calzone here again.

Extensive gluten-free menu, including alternate options to make things safe. The pizza crust was actually really good and surprisingly crispy. Not sure how they manage to keep down the cross-contamination, but I didn’t have any issues.

Latest rating (August 2019): Got a GFree Pizza this time. Was assured that it was gluten free and that they prep and cook it in separate area. If that’s the case, they must have used a shared pizza cutter or something. Started feeling it as I paid. Rushed home and got sick. Only meal I ate that day. Pizza was good, but am confident that it was the pizza that did me in.

Original rating (Spring 2019): They seemed to handle my allergy/celiac questions well. I was reassured that a clean pan and utensils would be used to prepare my meal (this was offered without request, which was great). I didn’t get sick. As for the food, my non-Celiac tablemates loved their pizza. I got the steak frites, which comes with delicious bacon-fried French fries. The steak was portioned embarrassingly small and was over cooked. Asked for medium rare. Not even a hint of pink. On the whole, would go back because it was safe, but with lower expectations.

Great pizza! Waitress immediately knew what Celiac was, guided me through the options on the menu. They have a dedicated frier for their bacon fat fried fries and best of all they have a gf cookie dough sundae—a scoop of ice cream on a half baked, fresh from the oven, bowl of cookie. My non gf boyfriend and I ended up ordering the same type of pizza and the same dessert which always worries me—I’m afraid they’ll get confused about which is which— but that was a non-issue, they use different shaped dishes to distinguish the GF from the regular. They do upcharge for gluten free I got a small pizza, a coke and the cookie dough sundae and it cost me about $35 with tip. Not something I’ll do a lot, but a great treat.

We ordered the Margherita pizza. The crust had no taste. The sauce was also tasteless. The crust was burnt on the edges and there was not enough cheese on the pizza. They have a separate oven for gluten free an we didn’t get sick. However the pizza was not worth going back for.

This place is so nice! We came here for happy hour after visiting Arlington cemetery and sat at the bar. The spinach dip with GF bread (kinda pita-like) is fantastic. Also, we requested a GF "happy hour" flatbread and they said they were going to make that an option in the computer now. Very kind and very progressive

I'm cautious to review restaurants, but after my third time with zero glutening issues, I'm happy to say Fire Works Pizza in Courthouse is awesome. I was told they have a dedicated section of their kitchen and they seem quite proud of their knowledge about cross contamination. Waiters, servers, and hostesses were knowledgeable when talking about cross contact with me. I went with a group and we all shared GF pizzas even though I'm the only one with celiac. My friends loved the GF pizza too! They have some hard ciders as well, with one on tap and two in the bottle. While it can get loud and crowded, this place is definitely worth a visit.
