    Not sure what the previous negative reviews are complaining about - in my experience so far, having multiple options that are prepared separately from the rest of the food is a rarity, especially in pizza restaurants. Yeah, 4 or 5 options isn't ideal, but being able to easily order and know that your food will be safe is fantastic. The waiter was also very knowledgeable, and explained that they wash all of the gluten-free-area containers separately, and everyone changes gloves/washes hands, etc. when they enter the gluten free area. This is one of the best processes I've seen in a chain restaurant. Plus, the food was awesome. I shared the waldorf chicken salad (labeled gluten-free on the menu, but not one of the GiG certified items) and the gluten free margherita pizza, and both were delicious. Definitely the best gluten free pizza I've had since my celiac diagnosis a few months ago. The only reason I might dock a star would be the price (just a pricier restaurant in general), but I think they deserve higher than a 3-star overall rating, so I'm giving it 5. I am always impressed with and appreciative of restaurants that go out of their way to make things safe, especially when the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about it, too.

    what a load of crap lots of options. LOL There are literally 4 pizzas to choose from that are "certified" gf. But let's face it, if they are making other pizza, handling flour in the same place, nothing can be "certified" GF. That being said, you can choose from a salad or pizza made with non gluten ingredients. My question is why you do people lie on the reviews? Are you somehow invested in the restaurant? Or have you been living in a world where having 4 options is a large selection/lots of options? puhhhhhleeeze All of that noted, the pizza is tasty. The crust is very good. The Pepperoni tasty. The sausage spicy. My boyfriend said his BBQ chicken pizza is very good. A little stingy on the mozzarella, but, not a bad pizza for a decent price (a gf pizza). Will I come back? Probably not. But I am leaving satisfied.

    CPK offers a indicators for all GF items on their menu along with pizzas certified to be gluten free by the Gluten Intolerance Group (GiG). I have been here multiple times and have not gotten sick due to cross contamination. I am diagnosed celiac.

    This is only a good option if you want to eat a salad while everyone around you enjoys pizza and pasta. Gluten free items are clearly marked but are few.
