    Update: Treforni announced today they will no longer be serving gluten free pizza. -------- This is the best gluten free pizza I have ever have. They even have a separate oven designated for gluten free.

    DO NOT eat here if you have Celiac, it's not safe!! We went for lunch based on word of mouth reviews and reviews here about how they use separate everything. Luckily, I had a seat where I could see how my pizza was being made. While the prep was done in a separate room, the pizza was placed in the regular oven along with my husband's gluten order and was taken out with the same paddle I had observed be used on other gluten items. When I questioned it, I was told that the oven was partitioned off for my gluten free pizza because they didn't have the gluten free oven running (they don't use the gluten free oven during lunch because it's too costly.) I was then told that gluten is a protein and the oven is 1000 degrees so the protein has no chance of surviving. Funny, if that's the case, then shouldn't the regular pizzas be all gluten free after coming out of the oven? After speaking to the waiter and chef, they agreed to start the gluten free oven and remake my pizza using a gluten free paddle. The pizza was ok. I did not eat all of it so when I got home I used my Nima Sensor to test it and it came back positive for gluten. Guess I know what I'll be doing the rest of the day. 😕

    Absolutely excellent. Separate prep space and ovens for their gluten free options, which include pizzas and CALZONES!!! The quality of the ingredients was clearly excellent, the ambiance was great, and it was by far the best gluten free pizza I've ever had. I really hope to see more of these around, I was really impressed with my experience and hope to have many more.

    Very good pizza im celiac... I do not agree with one of the last comment here ... I am a nutritionist doctor I think we should not be exaggerated in things ... nothing happens if we use the same palette to bake a pizza in an oven that reaches more Of 800 degrees ... I think sometimes the lack of information makes things mislead ...

    For what you get.. way overpriced. Pizza is thin.. hardly had any toppings and overcooked. The calzones had no cheese and filled with nothing but riccotta. Save your money... you can buy and make better pizza. Very disappointed.

    They have a separate little room and wood fired oven that are labeled gluten free so had high hopes. The GF pizza was tasty but we had observed that the cook was using the same paddle to handle pizzas in both the GF and regular ovens and we brought it to their attention. We saw the owner talk to the cook about it and our waiter told us that they had 'taken care of it' (hm oven likely still contaminated). Was glutened :-( so will not be going back. Am a celiac. Should have switched to a salad!

    Go here! It is real pizza. Even has air bubbles! You can get pizza or calzones gluten free. Prepared in a separate area and cooked in a separate oven. Totally safe!

    The pizza was amazing. The owner really understands making pizza and GF flours. Dedicated work space and oven. The best GF pizza I have had in the Triangle.

    Super tasty gluten free dough! It's great to still be able to enjoy an authentic Neapolitan pizza even if you have celiac disease. They DO have a separate work space and brick oven specifically designated for firing gluten free pies so it's safe - and delicious!

    This is the best GF pizza in Durham. It's a local place with high quality food. This is one of the few places I have ever been that doesn't just offer gluten free pizza so that they can check another box they actually care what it tastes like! Also I'm not sure what the last review is about but they do in fact have a separate oven and an entirely separate room that they prepare all their GF pizzas in. Perhaps the waiter/waitress was new?

    the pizza dough is fired in the same oven as regular, using the same peel and surfaces, so cross contamination is an issue for a celiac like me. the staff was understanding and let me change my order to a GF caprese salad instead.

    Superb GF crust with separate prep space and oven. The owner apparently spent a long time in Italy training to make authentic Napolean pizza.

    Its not advertised on their website, but Treforni has super good gluten free pizza. Possibly the best in Durham right now. They have three wood fired pizza ovens and one of them is dedicated to making gluten free pizza.
