Update: I have received some additional information regarding processes used to to prevent cross contamination. Seems like they do take this seriously. As such I'm upgrading my star rating to about the current average so that their overall rating is not affected by these observations. If you decide to eat here, and have celiac disease or are otherwise sensitive, I would suggest verifying cross contamination prevention steps prior to dining.
Original Review: I have not eaten at Fong's, but contacted the manager at the Ankeny location to ask about what procedures were in place to prevent cross contamination and I received this response...
"I have to be honest with you that there is gluten in the air in our kitchen. We use lots of flour when we are building our pizzas. Even though gluten free pizzas aren't made right next to our other pizzas, it has the potential of getting flour on it. We do also use a clean pizza cutter that is dedicated to gluten free pizzas but it also has the same
potential of getting flour from the air on it."
So... A dedicated pizza cutter it is. Wow. I'm floored that this is, currently, one of the highest rated gluten free restaurants in the Des Moines area on Find Me Gluten Free.
Fong’s Pizza in the Drake neighborhood has great gluten free pizza - same menu as their other locations. This location does not serve alcohol though.
