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.

They totally messed up the order and accidentally gave me the regular pizza after requesting gluten free. This has happened both times I have been at this restaurant. It seems like employees just couldn’t care less...

Cardboard has more taste and a more pleasant texture than their gluten free crust. I ended up throwing it out.

Great GF pizza crust and they are very careful about cross contamination. They'll ask if they need to change their gloves in between making pizzas.

NOT celiac friendly. Also, employees make you feel like you are an inconvenience to them if you ask them to change gloves, etc. I will NEVER eat here again. Aside from being sick for 3 days after eating here, I don't want to go to a restaurant where I am made to feel bad about having an autoimmune disease and trying to enjoy pizza safely.

When I asked about gluten free they told me which items were but did not seem sure. I asked about the gluten-free crust when I did not see a separate press machine. She said it was prepackaged. She changed gloves, used fresh cheese and sauce when I asked. She said it was safe but then took it to the oven, slid it off the paper and placed it directly on the bare oven with the other pizzas. That ruined it and I did not get the pizza. I went home and made my own. So frustrating! My son got a regular one and said it was not good. We will not be returning there.

I love the new cauliflower crust and have eaten at a number of MOD locations. The kitchen is not dedicated but they take precautions and have been reliable in the past. I do wish they loaded more toppings on but it’s very good for the price.

I told them I had a gluten allergy( celiac) and they changed their gloves but then used the SAME tomato sauce spoon and dipped it into the separate allergy sauce container. It’s a good pizza until I get sick 30 minutes after I eat it. I’d avoid this place*** they put the gluten free pizza right on the same place other pizzas go on. No rubber plate under or anything

They change their gloves and be very careful not to cross contaminate. I will not say that it is impossible of cross contamination, but it is highly unlikely

I’ve tasted several different types of pizza in my life. This is by far the best.

Cauliflower(GF) crust was delicious but they had a GF crust as well that would also be dairy free. Only in the 11inch size which is a large personal pizza or maybe enough for 2 kids. I will definitely go back & try more of their pizza flavors. Recommend! 👍

MOD Pizza is fun and delicious. Unfortunately, this location does not have a barrier for cooking gluten- free crusts so they cross contaminate. Workers are very friendly and understand celiac.

They use to make on a grate in the pozza oven to avoid cross contamination. But they said they are not allowed to do this anymore. So be prepared for cross contamination.

Changed gloves and used new pizza cutter. Used clean pizza screen to cook on and grabbed all new food from unused containers so no cross contamination.

It was decent tasting crust.

Not known to be a gluten free establishment, but definitely went out of their way to accommodate.

Yikes. Not celiac safe! I ordered a gluten free pizza, and the first thing they put on my pizza contaminated jt. They used the same ladle to spread the pizza sauce that they use on gluten pizzas, and they do not put the gluten free pizzas on a tray in the oven. The funny part, was the employee told me she used a new pizza cutter to cut my pizza so she didn’t contaminate me, when the pizza had been very contaminated already. Giving two stars because it was my own mistake.... should have known better when they label the pizza as gluten friendly, but I was in a pinch and starving. If you’re celiac, it’s a no go.

Went to MOD Pizza for my daughter’s fundraiser for school. I was excited to get a gluten free pizza. I advised the girl I’m gluten intolerance. She acted like she didn’t care. She used the same pizza sauce that you would for regular pizza. They put the gf pizza in the same display oven with the others pizzas.

I don’t have celiac so I can’t speak for the oven, but each pizza stays on its own pan/paper liner & doesn’t touch the actual oven.
