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.

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 ⅔ full and it was 1:30 on a Saturday.

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.

Delicious GF pizzas available, not sure what crust they use but it's great! You still get the stone oven taste but they cook it on its own single-use tray so it's safe. Been here several times now without issue.

Excellent gluten free pizza! Knowledgeable server, our pizza was made on disposable pans, separate prep area and ingredients. Crusts are made by “A piece of mind” bakery in NH. My 8 year old with celiac was in heaven. Salads were yummy too!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Knowledge server and a delicious GF vegan crust for an additional $7. I had the Mopsy’s Kalyan’s Pork which used GF only soy and other products and a salad. All quite delicious. All toppings seem to be GF as well. Shared oven may make it dicey for celiacs.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
