Q: How do you ensure your gluten free is kept gluten free?
A: We keep our dough and pans that we use for gluten free pizza assembly in a separate area on the line that does not come into contact with gluten. We use an upside down tray to raise the pan off of the counter. We use separate spatulas to spread the sauce on the gluten free pizza and we use separate tongs and cutters to remove your pizza from the oven and cut it on your tray/box. Even with all of these steps, we are a pizza restaurant that has flour so we can not 100% guarantee no cross contamination for extreme gluten intolerances. Our disclaimer on our menu states this as well.
Q: I am allergic to nuts, is there a risk to me at your restaurant?
A: All ingredients on our pizza line are NUT FREE including our pesto sauce. We have walnuts in a covered insert on our salad table. The risk of cross contamination is very low.
