I found them on Grubhub and I ordered them to my hotel. I ordered two pizzas; they were very tiny. the personal pizzas Are only 7 inch pizzas, But the crust is one of the best gluten-free crust I’ve ever had and it came with a sticker saying that it had been prepared in accordance to the national foundation of celiac awareness guidelines. Which is awesome

WOW!

Not only is the service and friendliness of the staff super awesome, the pizza is SO good! They have all sorts of toppings and special dishes that you can enjoy. The staff explained that they take every precaution to meet National Foundation for Celiac Awareness standards, including separate prep area and separate pizza topping containers that are ONLY for GF prep. A separate pizza cutter and top shelf placement in a conveyor pizza oven maintain the effort to provide GF prep from start to finish.

They also have GF chicken bites (kinda like chicken nuggets) available that can be prepared like buffalo wings. They are pretty good, not as tasty as the pizza in my opinion though.

A bit pricey considering the size, but the care for GF Celiac prep is completely worth it. I plan on frequenting this spot!

This place is great! They prepare your pizza in a dedicated area and cook it on the top line to help eliminate cross contamination. There are VERY few places I trust to eat gluten free pizza, and this is one of them.

I eat here weekly, I have eaten at other locations and never had an issue with cross contamination! They have proper training and dedicated kitchen spaces for their foods, the wings and everything else are all baked, not fried so a dedicated frier is not needed. If I could give them more than five stars I would.

The GF pizza was really good and tasted like regular pizza. The box also had a “celiac safe” sticker on the top. I was unfortunately glutened pretty bad and suspect that I actually received a regular pizza or it was really cross-contaminated. I will not be returning.

Favorite gluten free pizza in Los Angeles. They are extremely knowledgeable about Celiac and even have a training for their staff to prevent cross contamination. I have never gotten sick.

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!
