I’ve never been contaminated and I’ve eaten here numerous times. They cook the gf pizza in its own tin foil pan. I’ve tried everything on the gf menu - they use the same gf pizza crust for the sandwich and the garlic bread. Super delicious!! I usually note that I have celiac disease in the “special notes” section. Excellent!

My wife is a celiac and loves pizza. Yet it is hard to find. We found out that cottage inn had gluten free pizza. Now like most they will tell you that it is made in the same kitchen as gluten. But here is the interesting part. She has eaten here a bunch and has not gotten sick. Every time I order I state that I know the kitchen has gluten. I then say that she is a celiac and to be careful the best they can. One time the manger called me to let me know that they wiped everything down for us. I was very surprised. Depending on who is working, you may get someone who tries but not like the one manger. But I am happy to say she still hasn’t got sick. We took the chance and now we eat there a lot
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
I am a very sensitive celiac and over the past decade even ovoid cross contamination like a plague. I have zero issues with any of the three Lansing Cottage Inn locations and it feels so good to trust a great pizza company. Great options and love this place!
I’ve been wanting to try their gf pizza for a long time and holy moly it’s yummy! They add a lot of toppings so it’s not bare which is awesome too! The crust doesn’t have a crust lip like regular pizza, it comes in its own tin foil pan and the consistency of the crust is better than any other chain pizzas I’ve had! Next time i think I’ll try to eat it with a fork/knife because it’s more of a droopy crust than a firm cardboard crust, if that makes sense lol
The staff is super helpful every time I go. I love cottage inn because they make gluten free orders in a dedicated space with its own utensils and toppings. Always feel great and super happy after!!
CI now features expanded gf menu including pizza, their signature gourmet pizza, cheesy bread, and sandwiches. We ordered a gourmet pizza sand cheesy bread.for delivery. Delicious and did not get sick! Will definitely order again.
The owner personally assured me that they take GF prep very seriously with a separate prep area, separate utensils. He said the staff change their aprons before prepping GF food. He said they’ve never had a complaint of CC. He was very nice and also compassionate.
The gluten free menu was pretty extensive and had lots of good options. The chicken was over cooked but the flavors were delish! They need a gluten free bread option for the bread basket. Why do gluten free people never get bread before the meal? Crackers or something would be a nice touch!
My new favorite for pizza! Crust is crispy and nice choice of toppings.
I only wont give this location 5 stars because it isnt a dedicated gf facility, but of note those places dont exist in this area. I have been going here for over 5 years and not only have they been great, but honest too. They have said the only possible cc is in the oven, but they do try to do the gf stuff separate if they can so that you do have to be aware of and ask about. They have bread and pizza here and its pretty damn good too. I was also told by the owner in the past as this used to be my go to lunch place for over a year too because they were located close to my workplace...i had plwnty of chances to communicate with them....anyway he said the absolute safest thing for a celiac to order there is their subs as even in the oven those are wrapped in foil. Their subs are like a big airy pita bread that is gf rather than a sub bun and i highly recommend their italian sub as that is the best sub. Sooooo good. Having this place around is awesome and I've had a very long term relationship with them. Highly recommend.
Of note....i have tried other locations. They are NOT like this one. This review is very much only for thos location alone.
Well, I'd eaten here a few times and felt fine. (Gluten free pizza with cheese only topping). Then I felt sick several times and suspected glutening but wasn't sure. Then I did a Nima test on their pizza after not eating there awhile and it showed no gluten found. So I ate those, felt fine. Ate a few more over the next weeks, felt fine. Then last night I ate one and woke feeling very very ill. Swollen jaw, messed up stomach, "D", etc - this has been ALL day with no let up. I tested the leftovers with the Nima and it showed "Gluten detected." So NO, I would not recommend. Someone didn't follow the protocol and cross contaminated the pizza. It could be from the cheese, or using the same utensils or not changing gloves. Don't eat here if you have Celiac disease or can not eat gluten. Sadly.
Apart from one time, every time I eat this pizza I get sick. D and other symptoms. It always looks almost burnt and is very thin and a very small/shriveled looking. It tastes just okay. I'm more concerned that I am getting cross contaminated. I'm getting a Nema tester soon and want to test one to see. I won't eat one again though. I've had them about 6 or 7 times and every time apart from the first I got these bad to very bad reactions.
Ordered online. Walked in, place smelled mouthwatering. Pizza came in it’s own disposable metal pan (they’re careful about cross contamination with pans) and it tastes so good! Unknown how the leftovers are, but hoping they’re just as good. :)
They offer gluten-free pizza and sandwiches. The sandwich is just the pizza crust folded in half as a pita, but it was delicious. Great quick meal or take-out. No tables for eating in the restaurant though.
I am always happy to treat myself with cottage inn, Westland. One of the Best gluten free options around! I've tried the gf pizza, the gf Italian sandwich and the gf garlic cheese bread(MUST HAVE GARLIC CHEESE BREAD). I recommend pick up instead of delivery because when the cheese is hot and melty you just can't beat this food! I tell them I have celiac disease and ask them to change gloves and use clean utensils every time I call. They are always happy to serve & I've never gotten sick. Plus the pizza toppings are the freshest!
The gluten-free pizza is all right. It's not stellar, but I've certainly had worse. I don't advise celiacs to eat here, though, because there's major risk of cross contamination, but the one time I ate here I didn't get sick.
excellent gluten free pizza and cheesy garlic bread. we called with a couple of questions, and the young lady we spoke to was very friendly and helpful. placed our order online and got delivery in less than half an hour by an equally friendly young man. gluten free pizzas are baked in the trays they're delivered in - so no worries about cross-contamination while baking. we'll definitely be ordering again on our next trip through.
