Like another poster I don't get the complaints about the crust. Our family loves it. It is different from their regular crusts because it's made elsewhere to ensure its safety - which we appreciate! I love that there is a pizza place where celiacs can get ALL the toppings (prepared in a separate area of the kitchen) instead of being relegated to one or two items.

I was ordering for my celiac son's birthday so I was apprehensive. The manager was so kind and informed and took the time to explain their process/safety.

I don’t get the bad reviews about the crust! It was thin and crispy. They bake GF pizzas in a separate pan so that they aren’t contaminated by the oven. Unsure if any other precautions are taken, but I let them know I was celiac and didn’t get sick. My favorite is the Fungus Amongus!

Love this place. I came here before I had to eat gluten free and am glad I can still rely on it. The gf crust was herbs in it (similar to Portland Pie Company in Maine if you know it) - it’s one of my favorites in the area. They avoid cross contamination using disposable foil pans to bake it in. They keep it in the pan for delivery or serve it on the pan in house - thus they and I are clear that it is gluten free and made to avoid cross contamination. Great spot too just to hang out and have a nice cocktail or wine - fun, tasty. When I was recovering from surgeries this year I always requested my boyfriend bring me some Penguin Pizza home to cheer me up (never fails)

They must have changed things since the older negative reviews, because this is the best GF pizza I've ever had! Most GF pizza has a thin, boring crust, so this thicker, chewier crust with herbs is a welcome change. Plus, they are competent at avoiding cross contamination, they have really yummy toppings, and the restaurant/bar itself is a fun spot to hang out.

Food was great! The GF pizza was made in a disposable pan to avoid cross contamination and it was perfect! We will definitely go back next time we're in the area.

Pizza is cooked in a separate disposable pan, which is good for cross-contamination. The pizza crust isn't like any I've encountered before-- very doughy and undercooked, but it stays together. Not my favorite option.

They now have gluten free crusts (only available in 8 inch) and can be topped with whatever you like (but they don't specify which specialty pizzas or toppings are GF). I ordered the "Blanco" - a white pizza with pesto and garlic - and the crust seemed either under-cooked or soggy. Will certainly give it one more shot due to the sheer option of having GF pizza delivered, but it was honestly no good the first time around.
