Was happy that they had their gluten free menu openly out, but there was cross contamination. The pizza was smaller than most gluten free pizzas and the slices cut tiny.

Gluten free pizza has been shrunk. I got a tiny, burned pizza. When I complained to the manager they did nothing. I complained to corporate and got a rude email that said they did nothing because I ate the thing. It was ask I was going to get. Find a better pizza chain! Two starts because I didn't have a reaction.

They offer gluten-free crust like the other locations I've been to.

Dont go here. They are not accommodating I had to ask for a refund for my pizza. The manager was extremely rude and kept interrupting me when I was trying to explain what I needed. The staff here is extremely rude and unhelpful. The place was trashed when we got here too, and the person who wiped down the table when I asked left it soaking wet. I will never come back here again.

We have ate their 2 times with my son who has celiac. I recommend calling 20 min ahead if you can because it take them 30 min to make a gf pizza. Its nice because they prepare gf pizza separately and cook gf pizza on it's own throw away pizza pan. So far so good for us. Also the ice cream is gf.

I’ve ordered here lots of times and only got sick once. They were very kind about it and said they would use this as a teaching moment.

Not only do you have to pay for the buffet but you also have to pay $11 for a gluten free pizza on top of that. The crust was cracker thin and burnt.

The pizza there is decent. It takes about half an hour for them to make the pizza and so when im eating out with family who are not gluten free there always done eating before I even get my food. They do offer 1 free trip to the salad bar but I cannot confirm that It doesn't have cross contamination. I'm almost detonate there's cross contamination in there gluten free pizzas though because Every time I eat there I get sick.

The family that owns the restaurant has members with celiac. They are very careful. They use disposable pans, only put gf pizzas in the oven at a time, use a separate cutter, and open new bags of ingredients. We have eaten there many times with no issue. Make sure to call ahead to order the gf pizza or the gf members of the group will have to wait while everyone else starts eating.

Traveling and very Limited options in Mitchell. My only option was a special order pizza. The second worst GF pizza I’ve ever had. Undercooked. Hardly any toppings compared to those on the buffet. I could see the kitchen from our table - no gloves and rather sloppy technique. Hopefully I don’t get sick.

Super place for kids and good gf pizza! This is an Iowa staple and saved us many times when trying to find a safe place to eat.

Went for lunch. Ordered a gf taco pizza. An hour later I got a spinach and tomato pizza. Returned it, 45 minutes later got the taco pizza. Taste was just ok. And I didn't feel bad after eating a few slices.

Delicious gluten free crust! They bake their crust in its own disposable pan and place it in a box (even if dining in) to help prevent cross contamination. On their website it says they have specific procedures to avoid cross contamination, use separate sanitized utensils for preparation, and that their crust is certified gluten free. My daughter has celiac disease and I follow a gluten free diet as well.

Excited to come across a Pizza Ranch knowing they have GF ouzza and I've never had a problem with one. However, the staff at this one informed me that they "ran out of GF crusts a long time ago" and "the owner won't order more because it's a waste of money". I was so disappointed. I gave it two stars because they still provided the salad bar, as limiting as it was.

GF pizza with the typical cardboard tasting crust. No dedicated space so if you are sensitive beware of contamination

pizza is cooked and served on a disposable pan so it is not cooked on same pan as other pizzas. however it is prepared in same area as non gluten-free items so there is a risk of cross contamination.

I was excited to have gluten free option where other family members would go. However there must have been cross contamination--I did get I'll after eating here.

I love this place. They have gf crust and use an entirely a separate sauce container for saucing it and you can choose whatever toppings you want. They also have a salad bar :)

I’ve been happy at other places when I could get a personal size gf pizza. We got a medium pizza and were able to pick from a page full of “branded” pizas. We got the stampede (aka the works) and my husband shared it with me; loved it even though he doesn’t avoid wheat. We each got a gf salad bar (which also has gf chocolate pudding). Cost a little more than the buffet but sooooo worth it! I’m not celiac, but for those who are, you should know they bring the pizza to your table in a box

Love getting pizza here! They make the gf pizza in the freezer with all new ingredients, so they aren't cross contaminated. The pizza is cooked on a disposable pan, they use a sperate pizza cutter, and then bring it out in a box, to minimize contamination. I eat here often and have never had an issue.

Great pizza. About 11.00 for a gluten free pizza. Some locations even suggest what toppings are gluten friendly (not near anything else etc).

you can get a gluten free pizza... just ask for it. the salad bar has lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, and nuts. the manager knew which dressings were gluten free

While the GF pizza was ok, it took way too long for it to be made. We sat a long time waiting for it.

It's definitely not the best quality pizza, but as of right now, Pizza Ranch is the only option for gluten-free pizza delivery in Ames. Their gluten-free menu has plenty of options, and I have never gotten sick from this place.

Everything is mixed with gluten free options. No safety about cross contamination

Tested 2 GF pizzas with Nima and both were safe. We ordered bacon cheeseburger pizza and sweet swine pizza. Look at the menu and allergy statements very carefully. Some items listed on their GF pizza menu are not GF according to their website. BBQ and Buffalo chicken were 2 examples. Still need clarification on that. Other than that, they did wonderful!

Gluten free pizza was good, but the eating area felt dirty. Tables were clean, but chairs were sticky. Friendly staff though!

I have eaten here several times, usually a pleasant experience but last time I ordered during the day and got glutened...this was during summer break so I am assuming the younger staff weren't careful.

Great pizza, very yummy and many options. The chicken, bacon, ranch is my favorite but my celiac son loves their pepperoni pizza. We've eaten here many times since moving and neither celiac in our family experiences side effects.

Delicious Pizza! Their pizza is prepared on its own pan and with dedicated ingredients. Since they are buffet style, it is served in its own box right to each gf customer who orders one, and comes with a clean serving spatula and plates. I have celiac and would consider this location celiac friendly. However, they have a lot of new employees, so still Always make sure that they fully understand how careful they need to be in prepping your order, and if something doesn't seem right, ask politely for the manager- they are usually happy to help and respond to any concern you may have. Also of course make sure to wipe down your eating area and hands before serving up your gf pizza because the tables, door handles, napkin dispensers, ect will have been contaminated and you typically eat pizza with your hands. 4 stars is because while they are great, their staff isn't always fully aware of the process already since so many are new right now, and their pizza crusts edges do often come out burnt (even though every other part of the pizza is perfect!)

They are very knowledgeable about celiac and cross contamination! We call in a "take out" order of the gluten free pizza about 20 minutes before we go then we pick up the gluten free pizza bring it to a table and those who can eat gluten can eat the regular pizza buffet and we all eat pizza together! The gluten free pizza crust sticks a little to the pan but we've had a great eating our experience there!

Took forever to get the pizza which was a lot smaller than the medium size described. Almost a personal size.

They do have a gluten free pizza crust, but was told than NONE of the sauces including tomato is gluten free. So I guess if you want a crust with just veggies, no sauce you are good to go. I was counting on this and left without eating.

Run of the mill GF crust on its own baking pan. Toppings are good quality. Add the salad bar that had sweet peppers and a few other unexpected items and your good to go.

This place is delicious!!! Best gluten free pizza I've had in a long time! My husband had the deep dish regular pizza and said it was also amazing! Love that they have separate prep areas and the gluten free pizza is cooked in it's own foil pan so it won't be cross contaminated! Yay! We were traveling through on a nine hour trip and I wish it was in our town!! Will be stopping here the next time we come through to visit family for sure!

I have ordered a gluten free pizza for delivery numerous times from Pizza Ranch. Most of the toppings are gluten-free too. The pizza is cooked in a separate area. I have Celiac Disease and have never had problems after eating gluten-free pizza from Pizza Ranch.

I usually love Pizza Ranch, but I haven't had the greatest experiences with this location's service (including in the drive-thru), so I'm just giving it 4 stars. but the food is great, and much cheaper for GF pizza than most anywhere!

We eat at pizza ranch often when passing through. Its fast, easy to order in advance, and we've had no issues with the pizza. Every Pizza Ranch I've been to has had very well trained staff.
