One of the best, homemade GF pizza crusts I’ve ever had!! They make the dough at their Salem location. The pizzas are baked on a dedicated pan and they are super careful about cross contact. They also offer garlic bread, sandwiches, salads, make your own pizzas, and calzones! I highly recommend!

Yes, they have GF pizza crust but it was generic crust that you could get at a grocery store. They had GF markings on the menu, but I was disappointed that their only eggplant was breaded. The sauce was VERY garlicy, otherwise pizza was fine. It was a nice touch that the server asked if we wanted separate boxes for our leftovers (my partner had glutinous pizza). No gluten-free pasta but some of their sandwiches said gluten-free, so they must’ve had gluten-free bread.

Note: I have never done take-out here, just dine-in, so this review is just for dine-in. Dine-in service is exceptional - staff is very knowledgeable about cross-contamination, and even though the pizza and bread dough is made in-house, I have never had a problem over years of eating here. And the pizza and sandwiches are always extra-tasty in addition to being safe!

I love Plum Tomatos gluten free dough but unfortunately was cross contaminated last time I ordered take-out here. Have been back to eat inside since then and the server explained that the eat in side of the restaurants takes every measure possible to prevent cross contamination. He did say the take out side is mostly teenagers who don’t understand the need for caution on gluten free foods. So safe to eat inside, use caution ordering takeout.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how much was actually offered gluten free! My food was really good. I will definitely be going back.

Ordered delivery. They offer gluten free pizza, sandwiches and pastas. I got a pizza that tested “gluten found” on my Nima tester. Did not eat the food. Very disappointed

GF pizza crust and breads for sandwiches are excellent. However, they have fries and chicken wings on their GF menu, but do not use a dedicated fryer.

Excellent GF garlic bread and pizza crust. I am also dairy free and the white pizza with salami, sausage and spinach was excellent! A must try for any true GF person.

Tasty! The Floremtine and the Kiss of death Pizza was made with flat bread crust. One pizza crust was excellent and the other was a bit under done because of all the toppings , Florentine. The cheezy garlic bread is a must. If you can't do cheece try the garlic bread.

I cannot stress this enough: their GF crusts are amazing. They put the gross, flavorless crusts at other pizza restaurants to shame. The right texture AND the right flavor at an extremely reasonable price.
