great gluten free and dairy free 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!
The GF crust is delicious, but they definitely don't go out of their way to avoid cross contamination. I've never gotten sick here, but I wouldn't guarantee it's celiac friendly.
I really wanted a pizza, but since it's cooked in a shared oven, I went for a salad instead. Unfortunately, I still got sick. All the pizza and salad toppings are in the same place, so employees just press toppings onto crusts and then grab ingredients from the next bin of toppings and repeat. Gluten everywhere.
Doesn't have a separate oven for gluten free pizza
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.
They really can't support someone with celiac here. We have had great experiences at all other Mod's but they didn't understand at all at this site. When I walked in, they changed gloves and we discussed how the crust cannot touch the screen or other areas that have had gluten crusts. They cooked the pizza on the stone with nothing under it and then were pretty short with me when I said it was not gluten free it didn't help that I got an eye roll as well.
Definitely not a place to go for Celiacs or anyone who seriously can't have gluten. They have flour everywhere and all the pizzas are cooked on the same oven.
I did not care for their gf pizza at all, it was burnt.... well they burnt the first, and then before giving it to me said, it was burnt made another, which was still burnt but not as bad as the first. Both were disgusting, horrible crust, horrible toppings. Just nasty in my opinion. Just found Marcos pizza in fort Mill the other day! Their gluten free pizza is heaven!!
So, i once reviewed them as safe. However, after arguing with staff each time i went at was giving nasty treatment. i stopped giving them my business. i did not always get sick. Occasionally there was a staff member that cared and took the time to ensure safe dinning for me, but i have also had an employee be down right angry with me for ordering with an allergy. Management was no where around of course!
We love MOD but this location needs teaching on the severity of celiac. I had to ask prep cook to switch gloves prior to preparing. They were not careful with cross contamination and I got glutened :( Other locations are fantastic but use caution if dining at this one!!!!
They take ZERO precautions to avoid gluten. You may as well eat a gluten filled crust. They don't even use a clean pan... They place the pizza directly in the oven on top of flour.
The waitstaff will use dedicated trays and do a glove change. But they always ask is it's allergy or a preference which irritates me. 😕The ingredients are gluten free. However, the cross contamination is horrible. They use gloves to grab the food so if the person before you had a gluten crust and the staff touches it then touches the veggies you may still get ill. Also, they stick the crust into he same brick I've where it touches the same surface.
They made NO effort to actually make the pizza gluten free so I walked out. They didn't seem to understand that you can't use the same ladle/sauce bin that they had just been using to spread sauce all over a regular pizza. I asked about separate ingredients, because that is what I have found at similar pizza restaurants, and their only option was to use a different ladle, but the sauce was already contaminated at that point. The pizza is NOT gluten free and shouldn't be advertised as such.
If you have celiac, DO NOT EAT HERE! The trays that they put the pizzas on are coated in flour and they coat the oven with it as well. They were unwilling to do anything about it and were not at all accommodating when I told them about my allergy. Will not be returning, so disappointed!
Gluten free pizza! Very delicious
No dedicated prep area, website says gluten free pizza offered but is not safe for people with Celiac or gluten allergy. This isn't a safe place to eat if cross contamination is a concern.
Pre-made Pizza skins baked on dedicated pans - the crusts are thin & have a nice crispness to them! Offers great variety of fresh veggies, meats, sauces, cheeses - including non-dairy (looked like Daiya). We experienced no cross-contamination, but we have non-celiac other concerns, so I'm not sure it's 100% celiac safe.
They cook the pizzas all in one oven, on the same surface, with no way to separate GF pizzas from gluten pizzas. I asked for them to use a separate paddle and lay down something to prevent cc and they told me that wasn't doable. I don't see the point of offering a GF crust that can then get gluten all over it.
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.
