I recently am gluten free and am able to compare the gluten free crust to their famous thin. They are nearly indistinguishable to me. I have had zero complication with cross contamination at this location. If you want a good thin crust pizza, it’s worth it to try it out here.

My husband and I are both Celiacs and we had a pizza that was terrific. They told us they could not guarantee avoiding cross contamination but they did change gloves and use a clean cutter. They were not too busy so that was in our favor.

Probably the best GF pizza I’ve ever had. I’ve been gluten free since 2015 so I’ve had probably hundreds of different brands since then. This one was awesome

We order online from the app and it states that there is a risk of cross contamination when ordering gluten free pizza. I have tried both the gluten free crust and the cauliflower crust with out any issues. The pizza is good.

We order from this Donatos a few times a month. Usually gf is not an issue and comes marked/sealed with a gf sticker. Once we were sent a gluten pizza. We called, they delivered the gf pizza immediately. Typically the gf pizza is cooked well and we like their crust.

Ordered the bruschetta on cauliflower crust. It was delicious but I soon started to react. This was ultimately my fault because I presumed the pizza on GF crust with plant-based sausage would be GF. The sausage is not GF. Otherwise, the pizza would have been fantastic.

They had gluten free and vegan items marked on menu. When clarifying about measures taken, employee assured me he would use unopen materials from the back instead of the items out and in use. My food was later to the table than others but it was because there was cross contamination from a different employee. They were open and honest about it with me and said they had already begun making a new pizza for me.

I would give this place 0 stars if I could. This place has no business listing themselves as GF. Stay FAR away from this place if you are Celiac!!! My daughter is a student at OSU and went in for a GF pizza tonight. They served her the pizza. Three slices in and they came over and told her they served her the wrong pizza and it was a full gluten pizza. She is soooo sick!!! She cannot stop puking. Don’t ever go here if you have Celiac!!! You have been warned!!!

The food was okay, and my daughter did not get sick. The staff is not all that friendly and seemed really annoyed by my gluten questions. The website says they have certified gf pizza, but only if you bake it at home. I do not recommend dining in at this location for gf. May try the prepackaged version at some point.

I had such a great experience here despite the bad reviews. I told the front house lady that I had celiac disease and then it was like an allergy and she went back to the kitchen to make sure that they understood. After I ate, even though I don’t immediately feel sick, she came to check on me to make sure that everything was ok. Again great experience, just explain your needs

The “gluten free” pizza was very tasty! The only thing is cross contamination. The box has a warning posted on it that it was prepared and cooked in the same area as typical pizza. Wish I would have asked before I ordered.

Seemed to know Celiac protocol. However, the wiped everything down with the same towel and didn’t rinse it so I’m guessing there will be contamination.

Be careful!! We went in all excited about the GF pizzas mentioned on their website, but it turns out the Wooster location and many others, do NOT have GF crusts, nor always dairy free cheese. We were soooooo bummed. We can eat almost anywhere in Colorado, but Ohio is Severely Limited. Better try Basil if you're in Wooster, they are awesome with allergies!
