Really delicious gluten free crust but I've felt sick the past two times eating there
The gluten free crust here is pretty good and I've eaten here several times without a reaction, but I do think there's probably some risk of cross contamination. I haven't gone back since the time I received a gluten pizza instead of the gluten free crust (luckily recognized it since I'd ordered from there before). It was busy and mistakes happen but that's a pretty big mistake, and was extra frustrating since I didn't realize until I'd brought the pizza home.
Have not been in recently but the last time I went I was not impressed with the segregation of toppings and was very concerned with cross contamination from the same toppings being used on the glutenous and gluten free pizzas. I was told by staff that the did not recommend the pizzas for “severe” gluten free allergies/sensitivities. Food tasted good but I haven’t been back. Especially given that it is in a busy area and has a college student crowd, I am personally much more comfortable going to flatbreads where they prepare the gf pizzas in a separate area of the restaurant with separate toppings.
We usually go to Flatbread, but one day it was closed -- we may be Oath converts now! Two GF crust options -- Udi's or their own chick-pea crust. Very clear about GF/not toppings (sausage has gluten). Many steps taken to prevent cross contamination while baking.
Staff knew exactly what needed to be done for gf. She used separate gloves, pizza was taken from separate fridge and they put it in its own tray. They also had separate utensils to use (there was one labeled gluten free and one labeled vegan). Felt very comfortable. She mentioned they had an employee who was also celiac so kept a close eye on how they did everything. Happy to have a quick and easy option in South Station! Even was able to get a half pizza, which was a perfect snack.
This location is very strong on GF. Our son has celiac and we have gotten a dozen pizzas from here since it opened with no adverse effects. The crust is different from their trademark G crust of course but it is more than adequate - thin and crispy but not too crispy, and the toppings are fresh. We usually get no toppings or very limited for my son so it’s worth paying attention and asking questions if you like a lot of toppings, about the potential for cross contamination.
The pizza is good, but there’s one employee that ruins it all. I went out with my friends today and ordered a gluten free pizza. Even though my order specifically said “Gluten free” on it, the employee made a regular pizza for me. I was doubtful that the pizza was really GF (it looked the same as my friends’), but when I asked the serving employee she said yes. I ate two slices and realized something was wrong, gave a piece of the pizza to my friend to compare to his, and he said they tasted the same. I asked another employee, and he said it wasn’t gluten free, and that it probably got swapped with one of my friends’. No apologies. And it wasn’t “swapped”. All three pizzas were regular ones. They did offer to make me another GF pizza for my money’s worth (which I obviously took), but I was so angry at the employee for messing it up. Luckily, I’m only intolerant and not celiac, but I’m still experiencing an intense allergic reaction. That employee’s attitude was careless, ignorant, and lazy. She honestly should be fired, or they shouldn’t have the option of gluten free pizzas in the first place. It’s sad, because the GF pizza is actually pretty quality for what it is. That one employee, in one meal, just ruined it all for me. Such lack of respect and ignorance towards gluten intolerance and celiacs.
Ordered over the phone after popping in earlier in the day to ask about cross contamination etc. knowledgeable staff. Tasty pizza- but for that much money the size should be larger than 11”. If you have lots of money to throw at little pizzas go for it!
If you are looking for train station pizza that is what you’ll get. It’s great that there is a GF option on the go, but I had higher expectations for an “artisanal” pizza place. Toppings were good but on an Udis crust, which gets the job done just not appetizing. Bertuccis chain is better with a cauliflower crust.
My GF pizza was prepared at a separate area using the ingredients from the fridge, not the prep line. It went in through the oven on a special sheet. I had no issues at all and loved being able to get a pizza at the same time as my family.
They are very careful. The staff is knowledgeable, the pizza is delicious. We love our pizza with olives, aïoli, Basil, vegan cheese, white beans, pineapple, etc. We always make our own pizza with all the stuffing that is in a separate area for the gluten-free toppings. Make sure you ask for them to take the ingredients from the dedicated gluten-free area. I always ask because you never know when there is a new employee.
Unlike previous reviews, I have had great experiences at this location. Always change gloves, utensils and get toppings from the back when asked. They cook the pizza in the same oven as gluten filled pizza, but the pizza is on it’s on gluten free rack and does not go in at the same time as other pizzas as they cook so quickly. One of my favorite pizza places
I ate here and did not get sick, and the pizza was okay. The next day I came back and saw that they had share prep areas and did not take extra precautions. It's a wonder my family didn't have any problems!
Pretty reasonable price for an 11-inch gf pizza (that I will make two meals out of!). Lots of gf options for toppings. I asked when I saw them pull out the pizza cutter and they said it was a dedicated cutter for the gf pizzas -- it is even a different size so it is harder to make a mistake. And that pizza cooked super fast! Very viable option for a quick (and delicious) lunch. They acknowledge there is the possibility for cross-contamination, so bear that in mind, but they are as careful as I think they can be in such a small space.
They were very nice on the phone and take every precaution BUT the gluten and not gluten free stuff is cooked in same oven...so if you have Celiac you should call and inquire for yourself.
