I love MOD pizza and have not had any reactions there. They are definitely NOT for the celiac community or anyone affected by cross contamination. The thing I like about them besides the flavor and pricing is that they are honest or at least they always have been with me regarding their cooking methods and their ingredients. Ask for a manager and ask questions. Or email them. They have been incredibly responsive to all my questions. With me being 100% gluten free, 99% corn free and 97% dairy free, pizza is nearly out of the question at most restaurants. However I can have a tasty pizza at MOD for a reasonable price, so I am thankful.
They have gluten free crust in the MOD size. One of the best pizza options out there! You can choose what type of sauce and toppings you want. Their salads are also delicious! I've been to the Lynnwood and lake Stevens locations.
Not really GF!! They cook the GF crust in their oven on a layer of wheat flour with no barrier. To bad! I was looking forward to eating here. Not worth the risk.
they have Gluten Free crust but beware of cross contamination But really good pizza
They have a really good gluten free crust but it is shared oven and prep space. Their salads are delicious too!
March 2017 update- they can't cook the pizza on the screen anymore so this is no longer an option. Not even worth carrying gluten free crust now. They won't let you take it unbaked either. ...We just discovered this place and are so happy to have found a place for pizza that doesn't charge an arm and a leg and take forever to make the pizza. Staff was very friendly and accommodating but we had to ask for glove changes, fresh ingredients free of contamination and having the pizza baked on the screen. All their pizzas are placed directly in the oven, so to prevent cross contamination, your g-free pizza needs to be baked on the screen. Even so, I would say this is probably not celiac friendly. But the pizza was delicious and big portions.
They aren't certified since things are in shared spaces, but I'm intolerant not allergic. I haven't had any reactions when eating here. But you do have to be careful. When you say allergy they will change their gloves. They will pull things from bottom refrigerators instead of from the line if you ask for it. I love making my own pizza and the crust is actually really good. Couldn't tell the difference from old pizza crusts I've had. Had a panic attack that it wasn't gluten free but it is. I've been here about ten times and been successful but sometimes they do make a mistake. Talk to the manager when it happens and he will take care of it.
Friendly staff, however after my first visit to this location (I'd been to others in past), I watched them use the same tools on my GF pizza in the oven as another guest's, which prompted me to ask if they use any safety baking pans or carbon sheets to prevent contamination. Nope. All a shared environment. Defeats the purpose of a GF option, and I had to inform the two employees of that. I informed them it's not just a fad diet for those of us with autoimmune conditions or allergies, that the smallest crumb from contamination makes us violently ill. They were very respectful and courteous, just bummed to find out after. I'd been to other locations that take contamination seriously, so I didn't think it would be any different here.
Great gluten free and regular pizza. Also has wonderful salads. We did take out since we were traveling with our dog but they also have beer and wine at the restaurant. I am only gluten sensitive, but I had no problems. You could choose from many ingredients for both the salad and pizza.
Not celiac friendly - food cooked directly on same surface in oven.
They have a gluten free crust. It is not very good. Did not take any precautions for an allergy. We got 2 pizza's with gluten free crust and a deluxe salad. My husband (celiac) did not care for his salad with the italian dressing. My oldest daughter (celiac) only ate one slice of her pizza. She ordered it the way she always does. My youngest daughter and myself shared a pizza which we did not finish. I just did not care for the flavor. We will see if anyone gets sick tonight. I don't recommend
We have visited this particular MOD multiple times and always come away happy. If you specify that you are gluten free because of medical reasons they will take good care of you. Even with long lines and during busy times of the day cross-contamination hasn't been an issue. If you are very sensitive it's probably not the best choice, but at a sensitivity of >=20 ppm it's a great place to get some pizza!
The pizza is delicious but the oven is not dedicated. They will put on clean gloves to make your pizza though and they offer dairy free cheese (Daiya). We eat here regularly and have always had good food and friendly service. For a family of four (3 of us are GF) we can often eat for under $30 which is a great deal. They will even make cinnamon sticks for dessert on a gluten free crust (although this is not on the menu, you just have to ask). Their red sauce used to contain Parmesan but it no longer does so it is also dairy free now. They have a ton of topping options and they have delicious salad options as well! Go here!
I went home sick from this place. No plans to return.
I'm grateful for the fact that they offer gluten and dairy free items. However, I think they can try harder to minimize the cross contamination risk. They first time I went they were careful and I had a great experience. The last 2 times that I went they weren't careful and my body paid for it later.
I get sick here every time :( They are great about changing gloves and all of that however ingredients mingle on the line, so even a salad is dicey. The biggest problem is the pizza is cooked in the same oven as all the gluten containing pizzas. = lots of cross contamination. I'm ok with deep fat fryers, and don't require separate prep spaces (NCGS). However MOD has most often left me feeling miserable the following day. My order usually contained a veggie @ meat pizza with no dairy/cheese added. Including salads. Even kept dressing super simple. Nothing too crazy. I don't think this is a good fit for a celiac. The Lake Stevens Dominos had a better set up to prevent CC. There may be others nearby but they let you watch so it's easy to see what issues could/won't arise due to their precautions.
Just discovered this place near me. They have gluten free pizza and dairy free cheese with lots of awesome topping options. They do warn however that there is a risk of gluten cross contamination so eat at your own risk.
Superb. Much better than mellow mushroom since they changed their crust. And it is fast, reasonable, and yummy. Had the Dominic. Excellent!!
Amazing gluten free and dairy free pizza! You have to call in to request your pizza made this way.
I'm impressed! Not only do they offer a gf white sauce, but offering Daiya cheese is amazing. I am not dairy free but I used to be and I appreciate when restaurants offer the option. And Daiya has the best df cheese option I've found. Now, on to my pizza. Oh so many options! And, just like it says outside, oh so fast. And yes, it taste delicious. :-) I took away one star because the rim of mine, and my dining companion's pizzas were charred black. A minor issue that will not keep me from returning. :-)
Mod offers a gluten free crust (for an additional $2) and salads? Food tastes okay but you can pretty much guarantee cross contamination with either. The employees either don't understand or don't care (gloves aren't changed, same utensils, same cooking area).
I went to one in Denver recently, and was a little disappointed because they asked me if I needed gluten free for an allergy, and when I said yes, all they did was warn me that there was a risk of cross-contamination. I did not get sick, but they didn't really take any precautions at all. Here in the Springs, though, they immediately asked me if I needed them to change gloves, and everyone who handled my pizza did. They also got my toppings from fresh containers instead of the ones that had been CC'd. The staff was also knowledgable about the ingredients in their sauces (when I said dairy-free cheese, she immediately warned me that the sauce has some cheese in it), and they were very accommodating and friendly! Excellent gluten free crust (my mom said it tasted really close to their regular crust), and they also serve Daiya cheese, for those avoiding dairy. Definitely will be back! Also, the caramelized pear tea is awesome! Update: The staff wasn't as careful the second time I went in. If you're really sensitive, you'll want to be diligent, but I still did not have a problem.
This place is great! They have a gluten free crust that is tasty and TONS of great toppings. It's affordable and has a good atmosphere and a really wonderful patio. They bake the GF crust in the same oven as the regular pizzas so if you're super sensitive to cross contamination be aware of that. I didn't have any issues though. I'll definitely be back :)
Delicious gluten free pizza, but unfortunately had to change my rating. Initially when they opened they were willing to take precautions but now they've decided that they don't want to be gluten free and I have gotten sick because of it. All they have to do is have special trays to place pizzas on to cook in the oven (like other pizza places) or pre-clean(which they use to do). Bummer cuz they lost our regular business.
