    Very friendly front of house who answered all of my questions regarding preparation, even on a busy holiday weekend. My order was flagged to prevent cross contamination. Separate prep area and pizza cooked on heavy foil. Delicious pizza with chewy crust. Would recommend and will visit next time I'm in town.

    Amazing! Had the taco pizza gluten free. They even used aluminum foil to prevent cross contamination in the oven. Waiting on our gluten free brownie sundae! Yum!

    The staff was very courteous and very knowledgable about cross contamination. We had a great meal there today and no effects! My son has celiac disease and is very sensitive. We would know by now if he was even cross contaminated. He had the Jay's flatbread (cheese pizza) and a root beer. They make them on foil in the walk in fridge, away from contaminates. Definitely will be back!

    The crust is some of the best GF crust I've had, and the kitchen and staff are aware of Celiac and food preparation. They have a separate station for making the GF flatbreads, and they wrap the crust in tin foil before putting it in the brick oven. They are as cautious as can be. That being said, this place is not safe for anyone with Celiac. There is flour everywhere, the brick oven is small and shared with regular flatbreads/pizzas. It's just not possible to avoid. The staff is great and they have the knowledge and commitment, but if you have Celiac you shouldn't eat here.

    Flatbreads always my go-to regardless of location. It's not an Udi's shell which most cop-out places use because it's easy--don't get me wrong I use it at home but that defeats the purpose of going out. Always prepped in a separate location to not cross contaminate. Cooked on foil but still get that wood fired flavor. And cut with a separate cutter. Love it there!!

    The "flatbread" is ok. Would not go out of my way to get it again. Went only because folks in my group wanted Pizza. There are a lot of very good restaurants in Portsmouth that are accommodating and have a more interesting menu selections. But if you have concerns about cross contamination, they do control that very carefully.

    I have celiac and have eaten here several times with no ill-effects. Each time I go I explain that I have celiac and tell them I need them to be very careful when prepping my pizza. The crust comes in its own pan already so the crust doesn't actually ever touch the oven or the counter. They also use separate utensils. And they even have Green's Amber Ale GF beer (best tasting GF beer IMO)!

    I agree with the reviewer who said there is too much flour flying in the air to be safe. Even though they prepare the pizza in a separate room, I've seen them carry the uncovered pizza by the area where they are flipping dough on the way to the oven. It tastes good, but too often is burnt.

    while they do make an effort to avoid cross-contact, there is simply too much flour in the air to be safe for Celiac. visiting when it first opens so that there is less flour in the air may help.

    They not only cooked the pizza on a disposable tray but they prepare the pizza where they prepare the salads to help with any cross-contamination. The gf pizza was very good and my son had no issues after eating it. The staff is super friendly and the atmosphere was great. It's family friendly but also a good place to go without kids. We will definitely be returning when we are in the area again.

    My go-to pizza place. For one, they carry the only GF beer I like (Glutenburg) and they seem very aware of cross contamination risks, giving a little warning about the chance of flour in the air every time we go. Given that it's nearly impossible to have zero risk, and given that they have a separate preparation area for GF pizzas, I'm ok with that small level of risk but last time they even offered to put my pizza together in the walk-in freezer, which is going above and beyond and shows that they are really trying to make it work for even very sensitive people. And they apparently have a separate pizza oven for GF (this is new). And your pizza arrives in a foil tray. The ability to go out with friends for pizza and beer after my diagnosis means a huge amount to me. Highly recommended.

    When you order the gluten free pizza the server should ask if it's an intolerance or celiac- ie if they should put it in a safe pan- if they don't make sure to mention celiac! They can prepare the pizza in a separate area the server informed me. Good to have this option when going out with people. I am not a huge fan of the crust as I think it's a little soggy but still good toppings and great to have the option of safe pizza in downtown Portland.

    This might have been the best pizza I have ever had. They catered perfectly to my gluten allergy, with an amazing pizza and a gluten free whoopee pie for desert. Everything is farm to table, healthy and delicious.

    One of my absolute favorite GF pizzas! Punctuated Equilibrium is my favorite. I live nearby and get a pizza for pick-up almost every week--I've never gotten sick and it tastes delicious. They also have a great salad, GF beer, and a really tasty GF whoopie pie for dessert. If you come here to eat, it's a fun, casual atmosphere, but don't come expecting a quiet meal as there are lots of families with children. I've bowled here several times, and it's awesome being able to get a GF pizza and beer while bowling. (Be warned that the wait for bowling can be very long and you cannot call ahead; you must put your name on the waiting list in person.)

    The salad was good, I feared the pizza due to past experiences with cross contamination. They messed the order up twice though and it came out with gluten containing products on it. I'd go back and try it again though. In their defense it was a very busy night for a fundraiser. The gluten free drink they brought me tasted like sewer water though, and they don't have bottled water available, so I went without a beverage.

    We ordered the flatbread special with prosciutto, red onions, cranberries, and I believe three different types of cheeses... Drizzled with a balsamic reduction! It was so tasty! The dough is by far the best I've ever had! It was a perfect size to share. I also had a bottle lavender lemonade mead wine -- I highly recommend it! Great quality ingredients! The only downfall to this place is the service took soooo long.

    Ordered the Kahlua pork pizza on their "perfect" crust which is supposedly gluten free. I was sick within 2 hours. Not sure if it was cross contamination or something else on the pizza. When I ordered I informed that I had celiac and asked what was my best option I was told everything can be made gluten free. The gluten free crust is an extra $7 charge on top of the Reg. Pizza cost which is crazy ridiculous.

    The food was really good here, but a gluten free crust is $5 more. If you want a gluten free and vegan crust it is $7 extra. The server was really nice and mostly helpful, but did ask if gluten free was a preference or allergy. When making the gluten free crusts, the kitchen will use foil to help prevent cross contamination. apparently they may not do this if it's only a preference. This was a little concerning that the gluten free policies and practices are not consistent. Not sure it was completely worth the extra money.

    THIS PLACE WAS AWESOME! Their pizza was the best gluten free pizza I have ever had. Both the server and the manager made sure they went through the whole process with us. Everything is local, homemade, or organic and every pizza can be made gluten free. They prep everything in a separate area. They have a decent selection of ciders and gf beers. For dessert, they had gluten free brownies and maple whoopie pies. It is pricey, but I would pay for a lot for such great service.
