    Absolutely the most delicious gluten free pizza crust available. It reminds me of honey wheat, but gluten free. Apparently it's proprietary. They make it themselves in a separate environment. The staff is knowledgeable about ingredients and they washed their hands and changed their gloves prior to making my pizza. They followed a good protocol for ensuring that my pizza was not cross contaminated during the cooking and cutting processes. The only reason I'm giving them 4 stars is because they did not put my pizza on paper or take any precautions as it was sliding down the prep bar. However, I did not get sick and it was a delicious pizza.

    I give these guys a 2 for having such a great option. But youre probably thinking wait why give a 2...well after i saw the way they put my "gf" crusted pizza on top of a cutting tray with all kinds of gluten from the previous pizza on it, they get a 2. I probably wont go back. This was definitely not celiac friendly. It looked great at first...especially when i asked for a gluten free crust, the lady behind he counter said, "choice or allergy?" I was like..."awesome." But then the above happened.

    If you're looking for a break from the average thin crust, their GF pizza crust is amazing! Staff was very knowledgeable. They used new gloves and even stopped me as I was ordering to inform me that their Alfredo sauce had gluten in it. They packaged my pizza in a different style of box so that it would not come into contact with any of the other pizzas. I was impressed and will definitely be going back!

I kept going back because I wouldn't get sick every time so I thought maybe it was something else. I will not being going back, even though their gf pizza is delicious.

    I would not return here. Staff was not knowledgable at my visit.The website does a far superior job of letting customers know, but a flippant lack of staff knowledge at a place where nothing was marked on-site except the gf crust made for a very unpleasant experience.

    Did not eat the pizza as they were not very careful at all about cross contamination. They took my pizza down the same line as the other ones (flour and dough everywhere). It was on a little pan but it didn't do much to prevent it from touching the line. They also got ingredients out of the same bins as they do when making regular pizzas, so that's definitely not safe.

    By the time my pizza was made I knew there was no way I could possibly eat it. If you aren't very sensitive, go for it I guess. But they didn't change gloves, placed the bare crust on the counter where the other pizzas are made, and used the same utensils to spread the sauces as with any other pizza, and cooked it on a mesh. Absolute worst experience I've ever had.

    I generally like this place. The crust isn't my favorite, but I'm always happy for another GF place. I once went here with someone with celiac, (I myself have an intolerance) who got glutened. The workers used the same ladle to spread sauce for GF and non-GF. Afterwards, I went here about 3 months later and they had fixed the problem! Great service definitely worth your time!

    Even if you get a gluten free crust they spread the sauce with the same spoon and out of the same container of sauce they use on the wheat crust. So the pizza is not a good choice for celiac. Maybe if you asked them to use a new batch of sauce it would be okay.

    We are here from out of town and excited to eat pizza from a new place. Went in when they were not busy and asked if they could get the toppings from the back, she said no all of their toppings are gf. When I asked if the ladle for the sauce touched the crust when they put it on pizzas and she said yes but still wouldn't go to the back and get some that wasn't cc'd. We told her I would get sick if I ate that and she said sorry this is our sauce so we left.

    Went here because of the other great review but did not end up eating anything from here because everything was contaminated with gluten. While making glutinous pizza, the employees touched the dough with their gloves and then reached their hands into all of the toppings to put onto the pizza. When they added sauce they used the sauce spoon to spread the sauce all over the pizza and then put it back into the sauce. They did this with several pizzas, never changing gloves. They also used the same contaminated gloves to touch all of the other kitchen equipment, like the oven and knives, and to work the cash register. There is no way that anything in that place is not contaminated. If you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity do not eat here! I can't speak to how the food tasted as I was not willing to poison myself, but it seemed like a popular place for gluten eaters.

    I ordered the GF crust (which has a $2.00 upcharge) and was pleasantly surprised when the preparer immediately changed his gloves and got a new ladle for the sauce and a different pan. Unfortunately, they still use the same container of sauce as the gluten pizzas. He prepared my pizzas (similar setup to Subway or Blaze) and then went on to prepare my date's pizza. He then asked of we wanted salad. I ordered the Greek side but before I could say anything I realized he had not changed gloves to prepare my date's pizza before handling the salad. We took ours to go and in the car, my date said he was surprised I didn't say anything about the pizza cutter being used. At that point, I just prayed I would be OK. I actually felt fine and I'm very sensitive to gluten. As for taste, I thought the pizza was very good but light on the toppings and the Greek salad dressing was excellent.

    They take great care to eliminate cross contamination. Dedicate pans, utensils and grabbers. GF dough pre-packaged wrapped in plastic, and GF pizza placed in boxes instead of plates. And it's tasty! Also has vegan cheese for those who can't have dairy.

    My new favorite pizza place. I risked pie five after a coworker with celiac had a good experience here. The crust is made off site. They have dedicated utensils with red handles. The GF pizza does go in the same oven with regular pizzas but it is on a metal tray. Potential for CC too with cheese and toppings since gloved hands touching these items all day. The pizza is big for one person. The crust was most similar to mellow mushrooms with an earthy crust. I will definitely be returning!

    When I went there, they brought out the crust and then started using the same utensils as they use on the regular crusts. The spoon that touches the regular crust while spreading the sauce would also touch the GF crust. Even if they grabbed a new spoon, the sauce is entirely contaminated. What I saw was far away from being Celia friendly.

    The pizza was delicious, but I did get slightly sick from some cross contamination. That being said I am a "can't eat a fun size crunch bar because the rice has malt flavoring" level of sensitivity, so those who are more tolerant will probably be just fine. The pizza WAS good enough that I'm considering going back and giving them a second chance.
