After seeing amazing reviews on find me gluten free we thought we would give it a try. The staff was very confident and explained the separate area, oven, and utensils. However when I tested the pizza it came back positive for gluten on my Nima. I let the workers know but they didn’t seem too concerned unfortunately. Pretty bummed as my husband and my brothers pizzas looked awesome.

Highly recommend for those with celiac and food allergies! Called to inquire about safety for my daughter who has celiac as well as multiple food allergies. Asked to speak with manager and was very impressed with level of knowledge and extent of protocols to minimize cross contact! He explained the kitchen is not gluten free but for gluten free / allergen pizzas, they have a "walk in" prep area with dedicated preparation area and equipment. They take it so serious that the individual preparing the pizza must actually change shirts if they have previously been making flour pizzas. Although they bake in the same oven, prior to baking, they thoroughly clean the oven and then place the gluten free pizza on the top shelf to reduce risk of crumbs dropping and exercise extreme caution when handling. Manager very thorough in explaining and resulted in our ordering of pizza delivery to our hotel -- a personal gluten free pizza for daughter, larger non-gf pizza for the rest. 6 y/o LOVED her pizza and no reactions! Definitely recommend!!!

Separate gluten free meal with pizza, salad, and wings. Pizza crust is very yummy although the tomato sauce lacks some flavor. Pizza comes out in a box with a sticker that says gluten free and that the staff is trained by the Celiac Awareness Group. Great pizza place in Santa Monica!!

These guys are awesome. Not only did they deliver to our hotel, the gluten free pizza for my coeliac son was fantastic. He loved it. Our regular pizza was also the best we've ever had.

This place has great procedures to ensure that what you order is what you get, complete with "Gluten Free", "Vegan" (and more) stickers on the box. You will receive your food in a box, even if eating in if its GF to ensure no cross-contamination. He only reason I rated this a 4 is because I think the flavor of the pizza could be tastier. Granted, I am used to East Coast pizza, so I may be slightly biased in that realm :)

I’ve had Fresh bros countless times now and have never had a problem. I have a Nima but I haven’t bothered to even test for *years* and never get sick. I trust them more than any other place. The negative reviewers are full of crap.

It’s been nearly 24 hours and I still have not gotten sick from eating their gf pizza, but I honestly felt like I took a risk.

They prep the gluten free pizza in the same area and cook at the bottom shelf of oven.

Other Fresh Brothers have been cc methods.

I think I steer cleared of a bad situation, but took the risk because I didn’t want to feel like a social outcast with friends. Meh!

Awesome pizza. I miss the deep dish (used to be my fave pre-Celiac) but their GF is solid. One of the best around for sure. Very safe as well.

It was my first time here and the cashier was very helpful in assisting me with choosing safe options. When the food was ready they stacked my gluten free items separate from the rest of my family's food, plus my pizza had a sticker on it confirming it was GF and prepared per Celiac guidelines. I had no reaction to the food. The vegetables were piled on my pizza and very fresh. The crust was decent also but a bit burnt.
