Celiac and wheat intolerant. The pizza was really good. They make it in a "gluten free only" area of the restaurant and even have a stone oven only for gluten free food. Will be back if ever in Providence again.

I have been diagnosed for 3 years and this is the best pizza crust i have had. The outer crust had a bit of fluff to it and that is the first time i had fluff on the outer edge. Service was great. Totally recommend. Bit more pricey but so worth it.

The food was great!! I was able to watch them make the pizza from where I was sitting. When they made the dough, they washed their hands and changed their gloves. When they were about to cook it, they put it in foil as to not contaminate it. The staff was also very knowledgeable and knew what to do right away. If you are near Flatbread Company, I highly suggest you eat there.

I used to go to Flatbread when I was taking a summer course at Umass Lowell and was blown away by the quality of their crust - make sure you pay extra for the house made crust! It’s totally worth it. Needless to say, I’m very glad there’s one here in Providence! You can’t beat the atmosphere and the pizza. The drinks are good too!

Told them I was celiac and got a vegan pizza. They remade it but I was sick shortly after and for the next several days. I was told that they also cook gluten products in the same gluten free oven. So skip the place.

Phenomenal gluten free flatbread; just like the real thing. Staff is very understanding and most, if not all, flatbread topics are/can be prepared gluten free. Crust is doughy - a great contrast to the crunchy burnt crust we can usually find gluten free!

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.

Best gluten free pizza in Providence! The crust is crusty! All toppings are gluten free, salads are fresh and crispy and the brownie sundae is also gluten free. You pay for the quality but you can see the menu prices online, so no surprises there.

With so many restaurants now offering gluten-free pizza you might think about giving this one a pass but that would be a mistake! Their homemade gluten free pizza crust is phenomenal. Not the thin frozen gluten-free crust we have all learned to be grateful for, this is the real thing! They also offer gluten-free beer and desserts so you will not feel deprived in any way.

The menu is limited in general, but the food is always fresh, healthy and delicious, and any pizza can be made with a GF crust. Be certain to mention if you have Celiac, and they bake and serve it in a separate pan, to prevent any cross contamination. The staff is very knowledgeable about GF issues. Our family loves it here!

Their gluten free pizza crust is the best I've had anywhere. They were very careful during food preparation and prepared the GF pizza in a separate area from where their regular pizzas are made. They also use a separate pizza cutter for GF pizzas. For dessert, they offer a warm, GF brownie sundae. They use natural, local ingredients. I had no worries about cross contamination.

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.

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.

We went when it wasn’t super busy, so there wasn’t a lot of flour flying around. The gluten free pizzas are cooked on their own disposable pan in the same oven but they were aware of my diagnosis and were very knowledgeable.

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.

Had a delicious pizza and did not get sick! Menu even had a section for gluten free drinks! There is a risk of cross contamination due to flour being in the air however they prepped my pizza in the back from ingredients straight out of the walk in fridge to minimize that risk.

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 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.

Great and safe GF pizza! The waitress took all of my concerns seriously. They use a pizza crust that's in its own aluminum tray, they use completely separate toppings, and cut it in a different area that's above where they cut the gluten-full pizzas.

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.

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.
