— Not at all
Pizza is good but no confidence in their handling of gluten free ingredients, cross contamination prevalent and they presented a regular crust pizza as a gluten free one. If you have celiac avoid this place.
— Separate gluten-free menu
Changed gloves and used new pizza cutter. Used clean pizza screen to cook on and grabbed all new food from unused containers so no cross contamination.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
— Not Much
It was decent tasting crust.
Not known to be a gluten free establishment, but definitely went out of their way to accommodate.
They do have gluten free crust options but this location is definitely not safe for celiacs. I asked for the employee taking my order to change gloves and he immediately informed me that the chances of cross-contamination were too high to even order. Left without anything.
Yikes. Not celiac safe! I ordered a gluten free pizza, and the first thing they put on my pizza contaminated jt. They used the same ladle to spread the pizza sauce that they use on gluten pizzas, and they do not put the gluten free pizzas on a tray in the oven. The funny part, was the employee told me she used a new pizza cutter to cut my pizza so she didn’t contaminate me, when the pizza had been very contaminated already. Giving two stars because it was my own mistake.... should have known better when they label the pizza as gluten friendly, but I was in a pinch and starving. If you’re celiac, it’s a no go.
“Gluten friendly” is a disgrace at this establishment. The put the pizza directly on the stove. I understand anywhere that is not 100% gluten free cannot guarantee the food to not be cross contaminated. But this place makes no effort.
While they did change their gloves they cut my gluten free pizza with the same cutter they used on the regular pizzas. They also stuck it on the same pan. Needless to say I couldn’t eat my pizza.
Went to MOD Pizza for my daughter’s fundraiser for school. I was excited to get a gluten free pizza. I advised the girl I’m gluten intolerance. She acted like she didn’t care. She used the same pizza sauce that you would for regular pizza. They put the gf pizza in the same display oven with the others pizzas.
Not celiac friendly at all. I let them know that I have a wheat allergy and the employee that prepped my pizza let me know that there was cross contamination everywhere. The words didn't bother me but the annoyed and hateful attitude did. Very different from other MOD establishments.
We went here because they said they had gluten free pizza..they had a crust but LOTS of contamination!! When we asked them to change their gloves and stuff some had an attitude well few were very nice about it. They had an attitude and were very rude! Good pizza but WILL NOT BE BACK
Not at all gluten friendly. They put my pizza directly into the oven that was shared with all other pizzas, and used the same spatula to rotate my pizza in the oven as they did gluten pizzas.
2 different GF crust options!! I like one better than the other, haha but can’t remember if it’s the regular GF or the cauliflower one.... Tons of toppings & completely customizable! I don’t have celiac so I can’t speak for the oven, but each pizza stays on its own pan/paper liner & doesn’t touch the actual oven.
I’ve eaten several times at this restaurant. They do NOT have a dedicated area but DO have gluten free pizza crust and will change gloves before handling it. I’ve really enjoyed their pizza and never gotten sick.
The staff is super knowledgeable about gf and prep! The pizza is the best ever. Accidentally found mod pizza while waiting at the Portland airport and am super happy this one is so close to us! Salad and pizza options galore! Choose off the pre built pizzas or create your own. Gf and gf cauliflower crusts. Loads of toppings! Delicious!
Was told gluten “friendly” pizza is made with same ingredients as regular pizza. They do not have separate sauce or anything. I picked up some regular gluten containing pizzas for the family members who could eat it. I didn’t get anything. I will not be back.
Gluten free (advertised as gluten-friendly) pizza crust. "Build your own pizza" offers many options including dairy free cheese!
We were surprised how seriously they took an allergy. They offered to make a gluten free crust and keep it on the pan. They changed gloves and pizza paddles. We did not get sick and were so happy to eat their delicious pizza again.
Great place for GF option! I noticed the changing of gloves at every station to suit my needs
Not celiac friendly. Knew nothing about cross contamination and used the same sauce spoon on my gf crust. She offered to get a clean spoon but i had to explain it wouldnt make a difference unless it was a fresh container of sauce. She said lots eat here with no issues i just rolled my eyes.
Although they have two options for GF crusts, one a GF flour crust and the other a cauliflower crust, they prepare the pizzas on the same work surface causing cross contamination. Fine for people reducing gluten in their diet but not safe for celiacs.
The person starting our pizzas use the same utensils for a regular pizza as the gluten free pizza.
In a colossal failure of marketing, Mod Pizza names their gluten-free crust GLUTEN FRIENDLY. It’s like naming a milkshake chocolate lover to designate that it’s vanilla. I can’t even say how annoying I find that, because my whole problem is that my body is decidedly unfriendly to gluten. They make no claims to serving gluten-free pizza, offering the standard disclaimer about being made in a facility that processed wheat, and it’s just as well because they don’t take precautions like changing their gloves or cleaning the area the way other places do. The crust itself is one of the larger gluten-free-ish crusts available in the area. I could easily make two meals out of it, as opposed to other single sized gluten-free crusts that always seem a little too big to eat in one sitting and too small to be two meals. The crust itself, as pretty much all gluten-free crusts tend to be, was bland. It was crispy in the edges and weirdly doughy in the center, given that it’s precooked. They have a wide variety of toppings and the veggies are really fresh. However, I ordered spinach on mine and watched in disbelief as the person in the line carefully distribute five tiny baby spinach leaves across the crust. The pizza cooks really fast, but vegetables like green pepper cake out completely raw while the edge of the crust was burnt. So far I’m not a fan, but it’s also a new location so maybe they need time to get the kinks worked out. But I prefer Piology who offers a thin crispy crust and an automatic glove change or &pizza, who changes their gloves and wipe down the counters and have a delicious Smart Flour crust. If only they would open a location a minute from my house! Updated: because my kids’ school has a fundraiser here I ate here a second time. This time they changed their gloves when told I had a wheat allergy and took precautions. I ordered the Tristan with some extra veggies and it came out tasty and crispy, perhaps because they added the pesto sauce last. However, despite their precautions, my stomach was a little off today, so I still don’t consider it celiac safe. Still not the best, but has shown improvement.
Mod has great tasting pizza with a build-your-own concept. The problem is that depending on the person making your pizza, you will get little protection from cross-contamination. I had to stop the guy from using his flour-covered hands to pick up my gluten-free crust. They go through the motions of making it “safer” by having the crust in a separate location, changing gloves if asked, and using a different cutter for gf pizzas, but all the utensils used to spread sauces are the same as far as I could tell. If you aren’t very sensitive to gluten then you may be okay, but sadly, celiacs should stay very far away. The rating is a split between the gluten-free pizza being very tasty versus it not doing anywhere near enough to ensure that it’s safe to eat.
This place was not good at all. The gluten free crust was tough. The staff was rude and told us that our order made something “harder” just by asking for half of the pizza with olive oil. Would not recommend. You are way better off going to Blaze pizza. They also would not separate the gluten free and non gluten free pizzas properly.
GF crust put directly on cooking surface used for regular crust. Hence Not gluten free.
This place is not good for anyone who has celiac. The staff at the location (Naperville)were rude and acted very put out when we asked them to change gloves and give us new pans for our pizza. Then she proceeded to tell us that there was a long line behind us so she would have to make ours separate. Very frustrating.
Updated review: The same thing that happened to Cheryl happened to me the first time. I decided to give it another try. I explained that I’d tried them before and needed more assurance the pizza would be safe. I went early for lunch. I asked how they cleaned the metal trays they bake their pizza on. He said one stack of pans had just been washed (not sure how). I ordered a GF cauliflower crust pizza (see photo) and didn’t have any symptoms. I would try it again, but only if I was there very early, to avoid items becoming contaminated. First review: I ate here once and was sick afterwards. Yes, the pizza tasted very good. Yes, they have gluten free crusts that come wrapped, but they put that gluten free crust on a tray that they grab off a stack of trays used for wheat pizza. There are no separate trays for gluten free. I would not recommend it if you have celiac disease.
NOT safe for allergies/celiac. They do not put the pizza on a pan but rather slide it straight in the oven with the glutenous pizzas. They have signs in the store that clearly state they have gf products but are not safe for allergies. Head to Pikes and fill your face with GF cinnamon rolls from Cinnamon Works instead 😁
