Precautions are taken in preparing food but in the oven it is impossible to avoid cross contamination. Not safe for celiacs.
Great for fad dieters. NOT FOR CELIACS. Cross contamination is HUGE. Ordered one and didn't eat it. They are kind as can be and understanding. But NOT FOR CELIACS.
I walked in and saw right away on their menu that they offered Gluten-free crust, they make the pizza's anyway you want and the lady at the counter offered to change her gloves so their was no contamination, delicious pizza!
This place is chock-full of cross-contamination. I am non-celiac gluten intolerant and I can get very sick from just a little bit. The staff were knowledgeable and to be fair they told me that the pizza goes straight into the oven after they clean it as much as possible. They changed gloves for me. They told me They’d put the pizza in the pan. only detected a little bit of the discomfort I get with gluten, but it was there. I wouldn’t take a chance again here just because who knows if I could get more the next time. The food itself is friggin delicious and it’s a shame they can’t just have pans that the pie goes onto when it’s in the pizza oven. I think that would go a long way. California Pizza Kitchen is certified gluten free and nearby.
Everything was great, except they weren’t Celiac friendly. We are new to this diagnosis so we went with it...but they changed gloves got out gluten free bread put it on a special pan BUT THEN they used the same spoon that touches all the gluten dough:/ Isn’t that a big no no? Then they cooked it directly on the surface gluten touches??? That can’t be Celiac friendly:(
They have enough knowledge about contamination to offer to change their gloves when preparing a gluten free pizza, but that's where the consideration ends. The pizza comes in contact with the same surface as non-gf pizzas in the oven, and on top of that, they use the same pizza slicer for all the pizzas. Additionally, the guy making my pizza changed his gloves, put on the toppings, touched a regular pizza, and then touched my pizza again.
I've eaten here several times with no issues. I order the gluten-free crust and let the staff know it's an allergy (they ask) and they're very careful with the production. While their website doesn't recommend itself as celiac friendly, I haven't had any problem and feel safe eating here. You choose your own ingredients, which helps if you have other food allergies. I am sensitive to dairy but do well with their feta cheese topping.
I was needing to go to the bathroom after 5 minutes of eating the pizza. All I had was gluten free crust with cheese and the red sauce.
Super friendly service. The manager Jenny was very helpful. I have a gluten allergy and she personally helped me with my pizza to make sure it was done correctly. I'm very pleased with the service and quality of food. Make sure to inform that it is for a gluten allergy and ask for the special pan for cooking gluten free pizza.
GF pizza is made on dedicated metal pans with clean gloves. Toppings come from fresh buckets kept under the counter. The lady who made my pizza was really nice: I said I would skip toppings to keep it simple, but she asked what toppings I liked and got them, even though the line was stacking up and she had to go to the back for one of the toppings. I watched them plate and cut my pizza, and they used all clean tools.
They did use separate kitchen utensils to cook their GF pizzas, and you can also keep an eye on the pizza as it is being prepared. However, it made me really nervous that they cooked the pizza in the same place as regular pizza and use the same oven. There were a lot of opportunities for cross-contamination.
The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and changes gloves and used separate sauces. I am quite sensitive though and got an upset stomach after. Not sure I will go back again because of that.
They have a gluten free crust that is delicious. the staff is super friendly and even offered to change their gloves. They are upfront about the fact it's all made in the same kitchen. If you are okay with that, it's a great place to come. Picture Subway for Pizza. I had the Spicy Italian with red onions added. Even non-gluten free husband said it was delicious. Will be back!
Amazing! First time here the manager called corporate to double check what exactly was GF and what wasn't (the only things that aren't are the Alfredo sauce and the meatballs). They changed their gloves, used separate sauces, paddles, brushes, cooked it on the metal paddle too! They're not 100% gluten-free but they're gluten and vegan friendly! You can get daiya cheese here too! Salads (dessert, beer and wine but I'm not sure if there gluten free) too!
I was worried about cc but I noticed they already had the gf crust prepared so they didn't get put in the same dough press. Even after the more expensive crust and vegan cheese my pizza was very affordable. It was so great to go to a pizza parlor and have lunch like a regular person!
Yummy GF pizza. They change gloves and utensils used when you specify.
As the manager said they are gluten conscience. In other words they only have gluten free dough. Everything else is not gluten free. If you have celiac this is not a good place. Said cheese is not gluten free and sauce is cross contaminated. So tired of everyone saying gluten free when they aren't
I very much enjoyed this place. They were very careful and informed about what to do. When I mentioned that I have ciliacs they changed gloves and pulled got a metal tray instead of the wood one for the pie. The crust was good, not amazing but much better than many I have had. The only thing I would say is that they advertise that cross contamination can occur as they use the same oven, so if your condition is life threatening I wouldn't go here.
Best gluten free pizza I have had! I do not have celiac, but am very sensitive. In the multiple times I have been here, I have not had a reaction. They change gloves for my pizza, and take extra care. The staff seems to be very knowledgeable about gluten free options, and even have sauce dedicated for those who are GF.
I have celiacs and have eaten here several times since moving to Phoenix. The manager knows how to handle the pizza to reduce cross contamination. I usually ask for a gluten free crust they place it on a metal pan and I ask to use the separate sauces. When they bake it I ask to bake it on a metal sheet so it doesn't touch the oven. Every time they changed their gloves for me! Some employees don't know what to do so I ask them to do those things and they are very accommodating. The crust is delicious!
First time was amazing.... second time I ended up sick as a dog. Fine print on menu says not suitable for celiacs... please make that print larger!
