Went in person to “vett” this place. Staff was very knowledgeable about gf crust abs procedures. Be sure to let them know you need toppings from refill bins. They use the same ladel to spread sauce on EVERY pizza so be sure to ask for the sauce from the refill bin and a clean ladel. In the oven, pizza can come into contact with gluten. The oven burns at over 700 degrees though and gluten burns up at 550, so I felt cautious but okay with it. I ate half the pizza and didn’t feel “glutened.” I’m a pretty sensitive Celiac so that’s a good thing! This restaurant claims “gluten friendly” but their precautions are really good. I don’t know that I would order on a delivery service like GrubHub because communication gets lost. I recommend either going in or calling to order.

They have a great option for pizza if you're in need of gluten free and dairy free. A cauliflower crust and dairy free cheese with whatever meats and veggies you like to eat. It was delicious!

Pizza is okay if you can handle a little gluten but they use the same peel for all pizzas. There will always be wheat flour on the bottom of your GF crust.

Can't take the celiac here.

GF crust is kept separate but they put it in the oven without a pan so it shares the same surface as the other pizzas. They also do not cut the pizza with a separate cutter. As a celiac I would not go here!

Both gluten free and cauliflower crusts always available and always super dependable that you’re getting the correct crust! Dairy-free cheese too. Since it’s a build your own place, it’s really easy to customize for your allergies. Separate pizza cutters and everything!

They have a process for those with gluten intolerance and I didn't get sick! The employee charged her gloves, marked my order and got all ingredients from the fridge so there was no cross contamination. They have a separate place in the oven to cook and put mine directly in a box instead of their regular delivery method. I was very impressed with how careful they were with my order!

I heard it was safe for me to eat here. I had hungry kids and I didn't eat lunch since I couldn't have that either because of gluten. Ordered a gf pizza. They would not, refused, to put my pizza on a separate tray to cook it. So threw it into the oven with all of the other gluten pizzas. Mod pizza is a huge NO!
