Great GF pizza and vegan cheese option for the dairy free folk! Everything tastes great and I was assured they made GF food separately. The brownie dessert was good too for a frozen and wrapped treat, it tasted like a Little Debbie’s cosmic brownie!

The gluten free pizza crust was THE BOMB. Probably the best gluten free pizza I have ever had. The waiter was very knowledgeable and was willing to ask the kitchen staff questions. The gluten free brownie was prepackaged, and moist, chocolately, with big chunks of chocolate. It was the bomb digity.

As soon as we stepped in and told the waitress about my celiac, she got the manager. The manager was SO kind and knowledgeable about celiac. They had a whole separate kitchen to prepare my food. They also had dairy free cheese I could have. I got bored waiting and decided to color on the napkin paper🤣the waiter noticed this and brought more for me to draw on! Will definitely be returning❤🍕🍄

Only a 3 or 4 GF items that are prepared separately. I prefer the GF pizza I make at home. Overall experience was just okay. I visited on a weekday at lunch time and it wasn’t crowded so I think the kitchen was able to use caution preparing the meal. I did not get sick but I would use caution since it is a pizza shop. The regular pizzas looked good and my non-gluten free family members would give the regular pizzas 3 stars.

The new Mellow Mushroom is NOT celiac safe. I’ve had it twice in the past 3 months. I thought the first time could have been an accident, but I went again last week and have been horribly ill despite talking with the staff about cross-contamination. It’s not worth the risk.

The staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free food preparation. They build the gluten free pizza in a dedicated area of the kitchen and have gluten free items marked on the menu. They always bring the gluten free pizza out separately to avoid cross contamination. Great gluten free dining experience!!

Very good pizza. The gluten-free pizza size is 10 inch. I remember somewhere in the restaurant it says “self certified gluten-free “.

Flavor was eh, typical flat bland gf crust. But this location does NOT take celiac prep seriously. I got awfully sick from this "gf" pizza. Do NOT recommend for anyone sensitive to cross contamination.
