Fantastic gluten free pizza and even better service. We went right when they opened for lunch and the restaurant filled up immediately. They offered to cook the pizza on its own sheet to avoid contact. The pizza was so good and I highly recommend this place for the food and the views of the harbor.

We’ve always loved Flatbread every time we visit Portland! They’ve always taking proper precautions with the gluten-free pizza. For those who also have issues with dairy it’s nice they offer vegan cheese (Daiya) which I appreciated. I also love that their GF pizza is THIN crust (some places claim this but it ends up still being thick). Beautiful location and lively fun atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Delicious! Possible cross contamination because all the pizzas go in the same oven but they put the gluten free pizzas on a separate try if you ask them to.

De-licious!!! When we ordered GF, the waiter specifically asked if it was due to an allergy and said he'd make sure the chef knew about it. They can make any flatbread pizza GLUTEN FREE, plus they put it on a special tin to cook it, so it's not cross contaminated with regular flour. The location of this restaurant is gorgeous - right on the water. Highly recommend!

I was able to get a gluten free Flatbread that was delicious. My server was very knowledgeable and my pizza came on a separate tin. I wish I had one of these in Kansas City.

Excellent experience at Flatbread. The staff was very knowledgeable about Celiac and took all necessary precautions. The pizza is prepared in its own area, cooked on a tin pan as to not touch anything in the pizza oven, and staff changed gloves. Also all their salad dressings are gluten free. Highly recommended!

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.

The best GF pizza in the area! I've literally tried all of the other options and this crust is fantastic! We always get the special because they have a more creative topping - both a veggie special and a meat special are offered.

Ugh, my favorite gf pizza!!! Unfortunately they do cook the pizzas in the same oven (though gf pizzas are prepared in a separate work station and cooked in their own pan), so I have had mild upset on a few occasions but usually it goes down smoothly!

This pizza was one of the best gf pizzas I’ve ever had! I got the Jay’s Heart in a small (which is basically a margarita pizza) and I ate all of it. A lot of Maine locals were there so you know it had to be good. Apparently the gf pizza was even better than the regular pizza according to my fam! Even came out on a separate disposable pan. Staff seemed aware of my needs. Definitely check this place out! Eating there a second night in a row tonight :)
