Pizza is cooked in front of you in a pizza oven. Staff doesn’t always know/remember to cook gf pizza on separate surfaces. Nor a change in utensils or gloves.

Anywhere there is gluten pizza dough, wheat flour, and a buffet-style (open topping containers, etc) method of serving customers, it is not truly gluten-free friendly.

Even though they offer gluten-free pizza, there is a HEAVY amount of cross-contamination that takes place. Gloves aren’t changed, pizza pans aren’t cleaned between uses, flour contaminates all open containers of toppings, salads, etc.

Good tasting food, but I’ve had symptoms with both pizzas and salads at this establishment.

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!

Wonderful pizza, lots of toppings to choose from and can have up to 30. Best gluten-free crust I’ve tasted in a pizza, Bonus is that the meat is nitrate and nitrite free so no worries. Just be willing to wait five or 10 minutes for the pizza to come out of the oven but it is totally worth it.

Most important note if you want the gluten-free crust, know that it’s there because it says it on the website and you have to ask specifically for it

Updated review: The same thing that happened to Cheryl happened to me the first time. I decided to give it another try. I explained that I’d tried them before and needed more assurance the pizza would be safe. I went early for lunch. I asked how they cleaned the metal trays they bake their pizza on. He said one stack of pans had just been washed (not sure how). I ordered a GF cauliflower crust pizza (see photo) and didn’t have any symptoms. I would try it again, but only if I was there very early, to avoid items becoming contaminated.

First review: I ate here once and was sick afterwards. Yes, the pizza tasted very good. Yes, they have gluten free crusts that come wrapped, but they put that gluten free crust on a tray that they grab off a stack of trays used for wheat pizza. There are no separate trays for gluten free. I would not recommend it if you have celiac disease.

The guy took a used pizza pan, shook it to remove glutinous crust, placed the gluten free pizza dough on the pan, swabbed pizza sauce on it with the same ladle he had used to swab a glutinous pizza dough using sauce that was contaminated with gluten. I reacted to it. So, don’t eat there if you cannot handle contaminated food.

By far the cheapest gf pizza you can find in Bellingham, possibly the Pacific NW. For a two topping gluten free pizza, you're looking at about $11 WITH TAX. Maybe not the greatest flavors, but they are fast, good-sized, and hit the spot. They don't seem to charge if you ask for extra red sauce either. The special lemonades are also great. You really can't go wrong at MP if you're looking for some gluten free food in Barkley Village. Note: They mention on their menu that they can't guarantee totally free cross-contamination. I'm gluten free for a chronic disease, and I think I've done ok here. Your mileage may vary, so I've marked this as not celiac friendly.

Mod pizza does a good job of keeping you safe. You can also watch them make your pizza. They will change their gloves and if you request get pizza toppings from a fresh container. It’s the only place I’ll eat pizza.

I got their gluten free crust but I started feeling weird after eating a slice. I asked them about it and they told me they had accidentally given me their regular crust! They were not very apologetic about it and didn’t understand why that was a big deal for me. Will not be going again!

This place is Gluten "Friendly" NOT Gluten free. They use same pan and utensils they use on regular crust. Not safe for celiacs unfortunately.
