If you have celiac, there is too much cross contamination with the toppings.

Mostly friendly staff. One girl who works in the evening always remembers that our orders are gluten free due to an allergy, so she always wipes down all of the area to ensure no cross contamination. Gluten free crust takes very good.

Dover location understands gluten free. Cauliflower crust is great. $2.00 more but worth it.

As as soon as I ordered a gluten free crust, the server immediately changed gloves and grabbed a different tray for my crust. He ensured the toppings were gluten free as well. When it came out of the oven they used a specialty tray and different cutter dedicated to gluten free. I really liked the crust and will for sure be back!

I’ve read great reviews for other locations of this chain but I can’t recommend the airport location. The staff used the same utensils (ladle for sauce, pizza cutter) for my GF pizza and my husband’s non-GF one. Next time we’re at BWI we’ll go back to Silver Diner instead.

I have Celiac Disease and I've never gotten sick here. I am very sensitive to gluten and have always watched what they do. I usually ask them to wipe off counters and they use different utensils to cut and place my pizza on. The GM is very knowledgeable. No place is going to be gluten safe unless the whole restaurant is gluten free. You always take a risk! Just he your own advocate!

The managers are very helpful. They have dedicated cheese and sauce and many toppings are also kept separate. Oh, and it was really good!

The gluten free crust was super good and they even had cheese and veggie options that my IBS tummy could handle! I can’t wait to go back!

Was nervous bc of the “Subway” type setup but they have separate GF sauces, olive oil trays, and they change their gloves. I had no gluten reaction!

They have gluten free crust and cauliflower crust. The staff were very cautious of changing their gloves.

So much cross-contamination you might as well not even bother with the gluten free crust. Against my better judgement I decided to risk it and I’ve been sick for 2 days so far.

Asked for ingredients to be put in separate on my gf pizza from the back due to watching them cross contaminate ingredients. Manager came from the back & advised if you have an “allergy” this is not the place to eat. Even the back is cross contaminated

Staff is always very good about changing gloves and using different utensils when ordering gluten free crust and will usually ask about other allergies.

Though they change spoons for the pizza sauce when you order gluten-free, the sauce is already contaminated from the many times they used it to spread sauce on all the other pizza crusts. However, upon my request, they pull out fresh tubs of sauce, cheese, and the other toppings. As another reviewer mentioned, the pizza pans do have holes in them and they do not wipe the counters like I have seen Chipotle do. But I am not sensitive and I already feel like I am holding up the line and making them jump through hoops, so I don’t request them to wipe down the counters first. Pizza tastes awesome and I love getting gluten-free pizza and racking up rewards points at the same time using their app.

They change their gloves (but I’ve been there multiple times and sometimes they don’t, so ask) and have clean pans to put the pizza on through the oven. The process is not entirely free of contamination, but I've never had problems and I'm Celiac. The price is decent too! You can get as many toppings as you want.

Great protocols...changed gloves, separate pans, cutters and sauce. We could see everything in the process and were impressed.

While the lady changed gloves, they cut it with the same pizza cutter and took the pizza out on the same tray they put all other on. I felt the cross contamination within minutes of being done eating.

Staff was familiar with the term gluten free. They have a gluten free crust option and are reasonably priced.

They do have gluten free crusts. They did not change gloves, used the same utensils for gluten laden pizzas, same sauce for all pizzas, no separate oven space. I did not eat my pizza.

This is a great place to grab a GF pizza on the go. It is not a dedicated kitchen, but they are knowledgeable and helpful.

Staff changed gloves and used separate cutting board and tongs for my cauliflower crust GF pizza. Offered to get fresh pizza toppings from the cooler. Cauliflower crust was tasty!

Delicious gluten free crust, plus they very carefully keep the crust separated from contamination, cooking it on a separate grill plate. The lady here was very celiac friendly. She said a cook of theirs has celiac, so they are very careful here. Had the crab, tomato and cheese pizza and it was great!

Most of the staff here aren’t friendly or helpful and finding someone who is trained about gluten free and cross contamination isn’t easy. If you do go here, you have to watch and then talk them through it, making sure they don’t use the same utensils, etc and then be prepared for attitude if you have to correct them. It’s just not worth it. * Not all Pie Fives are like this, just this one seems extra bad.

The staff was very knowledgeable about their gluten free options. They asked if this was an allergy, changed utensils, and were very aware of cross-contamination. The pizza was one of the best I’ve tried. No issues.

Used a perforated pan that was sitting in flour, same utensils to spread sauce and same cutting board and wheel as all other pizzas.

Staff was nice but not knowledgeable. I walked them through every part of making the pizza and watched them very closely to make sure the pizzas didn’t touch. No employees touched the pizza without fresh gloves. I also asked that they do fresh sauce and spoon as well as the toppings! My daughter is very sensitive.

The guy working is gluten free as well so he was very very helpful. He cleaned the surface off, changed his gloves, got a new cutting board and pizza cutter! Everything is gluten free for sauces and toppings. I got the cauliflower crust- Alfredo pesto chicken pizza! It was amazing! Will come back

The gluten-free pizza tasted like a regular thin-crust pizza; it was delicious! The staff was very good about changing gloves/using different utensils when switching from customer to customer.

The staff has done a really good job of changing gloves and utensils every time I have gone! I really like their crust and their vegan cheese. One of my favorites!

Every single time I go to the chipotle and tell them that I have a gluten allergy they immediately change gloves and utensils. Get out new cheese and stuff. Some of them now recognize me and know I’m GF!

I love their pizza and their rewards program. I feel more comfortable eating there so I can watch and make sure they are careful about cross contamination (so I haven’t tried delivery or ordering online). I’m a Celiac and have never gotten sick.

They have 2 options for gluten free- regular gluten free crust and a cauliflower crust. I am also dairy free and they have a vegan cheese!!!!! The staff went above and beyond. They pulled out a pizza crust box with the ingredient list for me to look at. They got a fresh cutting board for my pizza. Super service.

Told them I had an allergy and they didn’t change gloves or wash hands. After I had them remake it, they still passed it to the next person down the line that didn’t change gloves. Gave up after that.

Called to confirm other reviews about Celiac friendliness. The person I spoke with didn’t know the difference between gluten free and gluten safe, gluten allergy, cross-contamination, etc. Likely others in the restaurant are knowledgeable, but it seems not everyone is trained, so we are skipping Pie Five for now and will use caution if we try to talk to someone different later.

I went to Pie Five soon after they opened in Springfield, and it was alright then. The gluten free crust is extra charge, and they also have vegan options. After a few months of being open, they became very sloppy with their work, including normal pizzas. They don’t do much to avoid cross contamination, and the last time I went, they put my gluten free pizza on the same cutting stone, covered in flour, that the pizza before me had been on, which wasn’t gluten free. Eating here has made me sick on the last three occasions that I went. The gluten free crust doesn’t taste particularly good in my opinion, either. If you have celiac, the risk to be glutened is very high here.

Have a gluten free pizza option. But they don’t make it in a separate area. So there is huge chance of cross contamination
