They make their own thin crust. It is a cross between a cracker and a pita. Don’t bother with the cheese bread, it’s dry. Pizza was okay. Fresh ingredients. Brick oven flavor was nice.
— Not very
— Separate gluten-free menu
Shared oven, no separate plates/pans. Not safe at all for celiac. Flour is everywhere. Got sick from a salad.
— Not at all
— No gluten-free information on the menu
Look at the warning on their menu under the GF crust:
“Please note: this crust is not safe for those who have severe gluten allergies because our kitchen environment has wheat fire in the air and all pizzas are cooked in the same oven.”
Ate there yesterday and have since learned (from other sources and Punch themselves) that wood fire pizzas are NOT safe for celiacs. There’s a huge risk of cross contamination and I am feeling it now.
— Not at all
Very understanding staff. Have gluten free crust but always explain it is not certified gluten free due to occasion cross contamination. Very good gf crust and all salads are gluten free.
This is my favorite GF pizza. However, I can have gluten in cross contaminated areas so it works for me. It is a nice change of pace from the Udis crust that everyone else carries.
Too much cross contamination. Got sick 4 of 4 times. Sadly it’s my kids favorite
Open air kitchen and common oven
The pizza is delicious! However they openly admit that they use the same oven for all pizza. If you aren't severely allergic, this will probably be okay. But otherwise, the salads are GF (I believe) as long as you say no foccacia. If you tell the cashier you are Celiac/GF they will help you with what you can and can't have!
Really good pizza, but really not safe for celiacs at all. From their website:
Please note: This crust is not safe for those who have severe gluten allergies because our kitchen environment has wheat flour in the air and all pizzas are cooked in the same oven.
They have VERY yummy gluten free crust (soft and crispy and delicious). The only problem is that it may not be completely celiac friendly. Cross-contamination is very likely since flour is everywhere. The people that work there warn you about this. I would recommend for gluten intolerant people but NOT celiac. (I’m usually fine there because I am not celiac)
Expected it to be celiac friendly, but you can literally see flour being dropped into the toppings area as they flatten the dough. Celiacs please stay away from this restaurant.
Final note - The pizza is delicious
Horrible pizza would not recomed got sick after
They offer a GF crust, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I talked to an employee who said it would go in the same oven as the regular pizzas. There’s also flour in the air as they are constantly throwing it down before grabbing new dough.
Best gf pizza I have had. Crust is crisp on the outside and soft and tender inside. Zero resemblance to cardboard. I had the Toto. No gluten reaction, but I always take a gluten-ease supplement when eating out. They have procedures in place for gf, but always risk of cross-contamination.
From the Punch Pizza menu: "This crust is not safe for those who have severe gluten allergies because our kitchen environment has wheat flour in the air and all pizzas are cooked in the same oven." May taste great but this is enough to keep this celiac away.
The gf crust is so good! Totally worth going !
Addictingly delicious, unfortunately I got extremely sick after eating there as there is no protection against cross contamination, which they will freely admit. So if you have even a slight allergy, DO NOT eat here, if it's just a preference and a handful of flour won't bother you then by all means, enjoy some of the best pizza in the twin cities!
Gluten free crust is better than others I've tried. They do ask if the gluten free choice is preference or allergy, but I'd have to guess there is some contamination simply due to the amount of flour/dough around.
best gf crust and the ingredients are very fresh tasting!
this was a very disappointing expensive experience. Based on the previous positive gf review, we went to check it out. They do NOT offer gf pizza. I paid ridiculous money for a very tiny salad with no bread or side options as they list. save your money and time, there are way better options in the area.
They by far have the best tasting GF pizza crust. Make sure to tell them about your allergy and they will make your pizza at a different station and scrape the brick oven clean. We are not celiac but no reactions yet after multiple trips.
Their wood fired GF Pizza is excellent. They have procedures to reduce the chance of cross contamination although the GF pizza is cooked in the same oven and they do make pizza dough there. The wood firing makes some of the best GF pizza I ever tasted.
