Absolutely awesome! One the gluten free pizza is out of this world! Never had anything as close to regular then this. Neither my husband or son has ever gotten sick. Just make you tell them it is for an allergy. Gluten free choc chip whoopie pie is gf and vegan and it is amazing! They also do vegan/diary free pizza if you are can’t have either. Highly highly recommend. Have eaten there many times with gluten and dairy issues and never once gotten sick!

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.

This is a place that I have been several times with a crowd of folks. The pizza if great. I have never had an issue from eating there! The only complaint I have is that it is really noisy. The music is so loud that you can only have a conversation with the person next to you. Other than that the food and service are good. I will go back but I may just do take out.

They cook all gluten free pizzas on a tin foil pan so they don’t go on the stone with the regular pizzas. They prepare the pizza in a separate area.

Also went at an off time so it wasn’t super busy. The prepared my pizza in a disposable pan & baked it in the brick oven. I did not have any issues. It had a nice thin crust & truly was a delicious pizza! It did cost $5 more to have the gluten free crust. The gluten free crust also only comes in one size.

Eh. Would not order again: I don’t like the flavor of their crust and always find that there isn’t enough cheese or sauce. It can get to $20 for a personal pizza if you start adding extras. I’d rather just get a frozen Freschetta pizza- or even a frozen American Flatbread pizza for that matter! They are somehow different.

Gluten free pizzas cooked on a tin and served in the tin so you know they were not touching the oven

Not my favorite GF pizza (crust is pretty soft) but reliable, convenient, and satisfies the pizza craving

No nuts in the whole restaurant!

The manager came over and talked to me after I ordered a GF pizza for my son. She explained that they change gloves, prepare the pizza in a separate part of the kitchen and in a separate oven, but cross contamination is still possible due to all the flour in the environment. My son with celiac did not have any reaction and enjoyed his pizza.

Yes, this place has airborne flour. So despite their many precautions (separate prep area in back room, no shared cooking surfaces or utensils), if you are super sensitive this might not be the place for you. At my last visit, they delivered my wife’s gluten pizza on the top of the two-tiered rack, with my GF pizza on the bottom. So that wasn’t great. I have personally never gotten sick and have eaten here several times, and will continue to enjoy it once in awhile since I don’t have a ton of choices within an hour drive. But it might not be for everyone.

I have been to other flatbreads without issue. Last night was the second time I was glutened at this particular location. Never happens at the other ones. For some reason, they always remove the pizza from the aluminum tray they bake it in, and serve it on the ones they serve everyone else’s pizza on. Why? none of the other locations do this. Those trays may be washed, but transferring to other surfaces is not safe in a place like this. I watched them cut and transfer pizza without washing, changing, or soaking a single hand, board, or pizza cutter (looked like the cutters were color coded by vegetarian, vegan, and meaty). Honestly, it wasn’t even busy this time and I still had issues.

They understand when you tell them allergy when ordering a gluten free pizza. Make sure to mention it is an allergy so they know to put it on a safe aluminum pan to bake. They prepare the gluten free pizzas in a separate area away from the regular ones. When I asked for a box the server first boxed up the regular pizzas and said she would go wash her hands and be back to do mine. Good pizza as well! They are up front on the menu about potential for cross contamination because it is a pizza place and they are trying to cover themselves but they are the safest pizza place I have eaten at both at this location, in Portsmouth and Portland.

Very good pizza crust and tomato sauce but I can’t recommend Flatbread because we were not informed by our server that GF pizzas take 50+ minutes as compared to non GF. Our server was very attentive until she got our order than we didn’t see her again until the check came over an hour and a half later. Never offered refills on drinks or advised us on the increase wait time for GF. We saw another family come in, eat and leave all in 50 minutes! Do not bring children here! I should mention the restaurant was only β…” full and it was 1:30 on a Saturday.

I came here for lunch today and had the BEST gluten free pizza I’ve ever eaten. Normally I hate GF pizza because I don’t like the standard crust that most restaurants use, but after reading a few reviews I decided to give this one a try. I was extremely pleased!! The crust reminded me of regular pizza; it was the perfect texture. The sauce and cheese on the pizza were delicious too. The pizza was also cooked on a separate, disposable aluminum tray to reduce the risk of cross contamination. I would definitely recommend this place and would come back here again for sure!!

I normally don't do pizza places because of flour/cross contamination risks, but I tried this place on our last day of vacation based off of the reviews. While they do offer gf pizza, separate prep area and it's cooked on it's own tray in the oven, I still got very sick. There's flour everywhere in here and I'm also wondering if maybe they used the same pizza cutter despite all the other precautions. Either way...it was not a pleasant road trip home.

Amazing ambience and great flatbread. They have 2 different kinds of gluten free crusts - one has honey and the other one is vegan. I had the vegan one. We ordered 2 different pizzas each time and ate their twice. Tested it with Nima and came back gluten free. They know about cross contamination and their gluten free kitchen area is completely separate. However, they have only one wood fired oven but take precautions and place gluten free pizzas on a foil. That takes care of cross contamination. And proven by Nima. Happy to find this place. Also, my wife is vegan and they let us buy vegan cheese from outside (they don’t carry it) for our pizzas. Very accommodating. Do try their house Cabernet. It’s worth the $14/glass. Gluten free crust is $7 extra but so much worth it. Would go back here again if I’m here again.
