I was assured that they had a separate prep area for GF pizzas and that it would be safe for me to eat there, but clearly there was cross contamination. Was sick within a half hour of eating here.
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!
We have eaten here dozen of time with only a hand full of times when we suspected getting some gluten. They are as careful as they can be.
The pizza is made separately and we never get sick. They even have gluten-free desserts!
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!
I was diagnosed with celiac disease 5 years ago... this was one of the best GF crusts I've had! Locally grown ingredients; Friendly staff, and quick service! I knew I was in good, capable hands the moment we walked in. Recommended!!👍🏻
Local ingredients, friendly staff, really really good food, recommend it! Best crust ever!
Gluten free beer, cider, wine, and flatbreads. Great options, and a caring staff. Flatbreads are kept separate on tin foil when cooked.
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!
Amazing. Honestly the best crust I've had since being diagnosed. Very careful and knowledgable.
Pizza is phenomenal and the environment is very hippie zen. It's like I was transported to California
I wasn't in love with the gluten free crust....I thought the pizza was a little bland.
My go to place for gluten-free pizza! Amazing gluten-free crust and wicked good salad for the appetizer! Very cautious - uses tin foil on pizza plates and seperate brick oven to prevent contamination! I also love how they try to source as locally as possible.
Great gf pizza and beer
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)!
Too much flour in the air apparently as we got sick from the GF pizza. Bummer, since it tastes good!
Expensive, but good food. Some of the better gf crust in the area.
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.
The best gluten free pizza I have ever had. The service was great and the atmosphere was awesome.
I love their GF pizza!!! They have really good salads as well.
Delicious pizza with awesome crust, but an extra $4.50 for gluten free crust hikes the price up quite a bit! Worth a stop if you're craving normal tasting pizza!
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.
Love Flatbread in Portland & this place is also very great about being gluten free! Amazing pizza & the goat cheese salad is my absolute favorite!
Excellent gf pizza baked in tinfoil tray. Edited 1/5/19: we both got sick several months ago and now don’t eat at Flatbread. I think there’s just too much gluten in the air. The staff is very upfront about this which I appreciate, and we still think this is a wonderful local business, but sadly we don’t eat there anymore.
Best pizza I've ever had. I got the sausage pizza with vegan cheese. Our waitress was really responsive and happy to talk through their precautions to keep the pizza safe. For gluten free pizza they make it in the back room so it's not prepared near the gluten pizza, and they use toppings that haven't been used for gluten pizza, either. Then they carry it out on a special tray so it doesn't touch anything. I also watched the person putting pizzas in the oven and he was very careful about placing it in a way that he wouldn't be putting the floured paddle over top of it. These folks really go above and beyond to make gluten free pizza as safe as it could possibly be in this type of restaurant. They also made a mistake on my pizza and cut it using the wrong (gf but not df) cutter, so they immediately made a new one. I appreciated that they caught the mistake and corrected it right away. That said, the seating area is in a large room where the gluten pizzas are being made and cooked. The ovens have hoods and we saw the smoke being sucked into the hoods, so any flour in the air stays away from the seating area. I'm very sensitive and didn't get glutened.
Great pizza - both gf and normal - great atmosphere and very pleasant staff. $5 extra for any gf pizza base but my daughter reckons best pizza she’s had since being gf. As others have said - cooked on separate tray and used different cutter etc - seemed very aware of cross contamination
Found this place by chance. Walked in with my mom, thinking I wouldn’t be able to eat here as well. Noticed gluten free options on the menu, talked with the waitress and the manager and found out they have a completely separate area to prepare their pizza and cook it for the gluten pizzas! They also cook all pizzas in an aluminum pan so if you have a dairy allergy as well as a gluten allergy, you can rest easy knowing they take the time to significantly lower the risk of cross contamination for us dairy free customers! Had the pizza and it was amazing! Would definitely go there again!
They have an extensive menu of flatbreads which really look more like pizzas. Any of them can be made gluten free for an upcharge. When I told them I have Celiacs she assured me they would make it in a separate pan in a different oven downstairs. The flatbreads that came out were amazing! It wasn’t the traditional gluten free pizza crust I’ve become accustomed to at many pizza places. This one was chewy and reminded me of what pizza used to taste like! They also offer gluten free desserts and ciders. We will be back!
Most all pizzas available on GF crust. Cooked on separate tray (shared oven space but on separate disposable tray so not touching oven). Server very friendly and knowledgeable about both GF and peanut allergies. I have a wheat allergy so always very careful. Would eat there again
Good selection of GF options (including dessert), asked if it was a preference or allergy, and didn't make me sick. They prepared the pizza in a separate area and cooked it on a safe pan. I went here based on the good reviews here on Find Me GF--after my server gave me all the disclaimers about how they can't guarantee anything is GF, told me the precautions they take, and came just short of recommending that someone with celiac shouldn't eat there, I went ahead and ate here based on their good reviews and had no issues, but the server nearly had me too scared to eat there.
Oh no, originally gave 5 stars about 8 months ago. But yesterday had a bad reaction. When I picked up the pizza the hostess asked if I had Celiacs and if I'd had their pizza before. I said "yes and no reaction." She replied "oh good." 4 hours later that conversation made sense in a different way. Sadly downgrading to not celiac safe.
Great pizza, even by non-gluten free standards. Only caveat is that gluten free crust is an extra $7, but I genuinely thought it was worth it. Staff knowledgeable about celiac, and specifically assured me that the pizza was prepared separately from the other pizzas to minimize cross-contamination. Also had salada and ciders.
Waiter was knowledgeable on celiac. They prep it on a separate surface and cook it on foil in the oven to avoid cross contamination. Biggest thing for me was the taste of the pizza was so good. Most restaurants that have GF crust undercook or overcook it. But these folks got it perfect on all 3 GF pizzas! Their ingredients are all fantastic as well. Best pizza over had since being diagnosed. Only downside was cost. $110 for 4 pizzas and 1 mixed drink. But hey, you're on vacation in Maui, so sticker shock is common.
Knowledgeable staff and separate preparation for GF pizza made this feel like a safe choice. My son ate the pizza and did not complain but honestly I didn't think it was very good.The toppings were delicious but the GF dough not so much. It seemed like the bottom (either the dough itself or because it is cooked in a pan) was undercooked but the crust was really dark. I'm not sure how they could avoid it given that they are going out of their way to make it safe, but I guess upon reading all the reviews I had set expectations higher. Great service, salad, fresh lemonade and toppings.
The food is awesome and the ambience of the older mill building is charming. Staff are friendly and helpful with how to make menu items GF. The GF pizza is exceptionally tasty. My only frustration was the $4.50 upcharge to make the standard pizza using GF dough. I understand why it costs a little more, but it does make one feel a bit like a second class patron when the reason for GF is allergy related rather than personal preference.
Staff seemed very knowledgeable about Celiac. Informed me that they take as many precautions as possible but there is plenty of "airborne flour, etc." so I'm taking a risk eating there. I ordered a cheese and herb flatbread which apparently came out without herbs because the waitress asked afterwards if I wanted herbs on the side? I declined because it was very tasty without. Picky family loved their non-gf pizza. I waited a few days to make sure I didn't get sick and so far so good. The pizza was however extremely greasy and maybe I'm weird but the amount of smoke from the ovens inside kind of bugged me while eating, haha. I'd go back though.
We Nima tested the gluten free jays heart pizza and came back positive for wheat 👎. The staff was very knowledgeable, they prepare it in a separate area, use separate cutting utensils, cooked on tin foil, still came back with wheat. So sad was looking forward to trying this place
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.
