We ordered for pick up. It was really good pizza and my super-sensitive celiac daughter didn’t get sick. The pizza was so good she ate the entire thing (which she very rarely does)! Highly recommend and we will definitely go back.

I also appreciate that they list all allergens on their website. We ordered the nacho cheese sauce for the non-celiacs and it was easy to look up and see if it was safe for her…it wasn’t. But knowing that prevented her from getting sick!

They use Udis par baked crust: I watched them prepare mine. Despite my request for new gloves, they didn’t. My order was to go, so, I didn’t check it til I got home. The crust was under baked and gummy. Toppings barely cooked. I called and talked to the manager. In her words they “hate gluten free pizzas and orders. “ She was kind enuf to credit my card for the nasty pizza.

Food tasted fine and I didn’t get sick, but the crust was sooooo soggy. I don’t know what the reason was for the crust being like that, but I hope it was just a one-time thing!

This is some of the best gluten free pizza I've had. I've only gotten delivery, and it's always awesome! Their staff does their own delivery, which I really like. I've never been disappointed!

I spoke with a manager, who informed me that their gluten-free pizza crusts come in a separate foil pan, and are cooked in that pan so the crust doesn’t come into contact with the oven grates. The main risk seems to be an employee accidentally using the same pizza cutter for both gluten and gluten-free pizzas. However, we order from our local Monical’s on a regular basis and I’ve never had an issue. I’m comfortable with their food handling procedures.

Gluten free pizza crust! Great for those with IBS following Low FodMap diet. They will substitute your sauce to brushed olive oil. They also have no issue checking their ingredients list for seasonings that you can't have.

The pizza is very hit and miss. More often than not, my gluten free crust is undercooked and not crisp. On the bright side, I haven’t had any problems with cross-contamination when I’ve gone here.

Staff is not knowledgeable about handling their pizzas separately. The pizza is cooked in it’s own pan and tastes good but if you’re there for Celiac it is NOT safe. I got sick and shouldn’t of tried it again because I instantly regretted it.

Several choices of GF pizza available. The first night I ate there they we're overwhelmed but the on duty manager delivered my pizza. Very good. Second time we visited the waitress brought it but separately from other pizza. I'm very sensitive to cross contamination but ate safely here twice! No problems! When in the area will return!

I suggest if you want a great gluten free pizza crust and a good staff go to the Fishers location!!! I believe my server was high and gave me a completely different pizza. Crust is good but having stomach pains so I strongly suggest going to the Fishers location.

Their gluten free pizza is so yummy! I would not eat here if you are celiac but if you have a gluten sensitivity or preference you should be fine! They cook the GF pizza on a foil pan but it goes in the same oven as their regular pizza.

I have gotten the gluten free pizza here several times and never had a reaction. The first time I got it however, there was a ton of sauce and very little cheese. It wasn’t that great, but since then I order it with extra cheese and it’s turned out much better!

Hometown classic pizza. They now have gf crust which are pretty good and cook them in a separate tin to avoid contamination from the oven. I am fairly sensitive to cross contamination, although not celiac, and I did not have any issues.

Great! Monical's has some of the best GF pizza ever. This one in particular was so good and I had no worries about cross contamination or anything. Also Monical's has GF ravioli. I didn't get it this time but I'll have to try it some time.

oh..they got that good ice too.....

I think the pizza is pricey but it's good! And GF shouldn't be an excuse to serve bland food which other restaurants do. I'm a fan of their GF pizza and would choose this over the chain competitors.
