Cook gluten free pizza separately and use different cutting board and utensils. GF pizza takes a little longer to cook than regular pizza.

Just had the pepperoni pizza on the gluten free rice crust, it was delicious. They must have cross contamination because I am so sick!

We ordered 2 gluten free pizzas, the Maverick meat lovers and the Sunset Beach. They were both really good, I preferred the Sunset Beach. They were 17. each, kind of pricey, but we are used to paying more for gluten free and the food isn't always good. I am glad we tried it and would recommend it. Rose H.

They will put any of their pizzas on a 12" GF crust for you. They have a couple dozen types of pizza to choose from, about half of which are vegetarian. I got sausage, clam, and garlic, which was... an adventure. Next to the soda machine they have a whole spice rack: curry, basil, cumin, chili powder, etc. That was pretty classy. 2 toppings was 14.50, mine was 16, many are $17.50. It's a little pricey for a tiny, albeit high quality, pizza, so they get four stars from me.

They could make any pizza with gluten free crust, and it was a nice crunchy texture (very different than their normal crust - similar to a cracker crust). The pizza was a nice size and was very filling as well. Also, phenomenal vegan options - cheese and 2 different kinds of meat (vegan pepperoni is not gluten free though). They said they would take extra precautions, and even though the majority of the restaurant is gluten-based, I feel great after eating it.

Tasty gluten free pizza crust was great with pesto. Small busy kitchen so cross contamination possible. Not sure why the listing has three $. One to two is more reasonable. Small pizza was $17 with GF crust and pesto.

I unfortunately can not recommend any celiac to this facility. There are other Pizza My Hearts that offer GF 100% but the one right here does not . I had to extensively tell them how to prepare my pizza to make sure it was gluten free and that's just ridiculous for one pizza . Their staff is not trained and all look clueless when it's comes to "celiac" . Don't be discouraged by all "Pizza My Hearts" just don't go to this one if your celiac or allergic.

Although they have a gluten free crust available, the pizza is not prepared in a separate area. The employee I spoke showed me they flour covered area where they prepare all the pizzas. Celiacs be warned... Cross contamination is a major issue here.
