We ordered the bbq chicken pizza and the pepperoni for our party. The manager came over to tell us they are cooked in a separate part of the kitchen to ensure no cross contamination.

The GF pizza is so good I made the waitress double check that they didn’t send out the wheat based crust by accident! 4-5 pizza options, wish they had a GF salad option; hopefully that is coming. Staff is knowledgeable and always treat Celiac as serious.

We came here our first night in Waikiki. We had the BBQ pizza on GF cauliflower crust and the Italian sausage option. Our server handed us a menu that had the GF options on it. The server seemed super rushed and not interested in our allergies, so we were nervous she wouldn't talk to kitchen and take precautions about cross contamination, but the food was good and no reactions. We wouldn't eat here by choice, just because it wasn't very special or exciting, but the flavor was good and we didn't get sick - just not anything really worth craving again.

We came here expecting very good gluten free pizza based on what we had heard from others. However, the GF pizza was just on their cauliflower crust, which although fine, was quite flat and a little oily. Also, the cauliflower crust contains both eggs and milk, so if that is a problem for you, there is nothing you can have here except for salads. They were cautious and careful about our gluten free order. In general if you have other allergies, this is not the best place, both because of the ingredients of the crust and because when we asked to change up some toppings our server got a little touchy and reminded us forcefully that CPK does not have a design-your-own pizza option.

This place was great. They gave us a lot of reassurance about their procedures. The GF menu had 4 pizzas that are prepared safely for celiac. We ate here 3 times with no problems. Pizza was really good too.

If you are in the mood for a pizza while in Hawaii, try them out for a quick bite. Our server was very knowledgeable and had a separate gluten free menu. I always love their original barbecue chicken pizza. You can get it in a g-free crust or (as the server suggested) the g-free cauliflower crust. It was delicious and I felt great!

Small dedicated GF/Celiac menu (4 pizzas), BUT with peace of mind as they are the four that adhere to the strict protocol to avoid cross contamination. (They can make their other pizzas on a GF crust or their new cauliflower crust, but cannot guarantee no CC). I had the BBQ Chicken Pizza with Avocado and Pineapple along with a GF Apple Cider - and it was so good! Server was friendly and knowledgeable, reasonable pricing too.

The gluten-free options are clearly indicated on the menu (not a lot), but there are prepared in the same kitchen as the regular meals (so was I told by our waitress). There is also an independent menu for strictly gluten-free pizzas (4 sorts). Our waitress was quite aware of the situation and gave good advice. I had a pizza which was quite tasty (so far one of the best pizza dough I've tried).

Short list, I think 4 pizzas, that are assured GF, which was very re-assuring. The waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly, fulfilling all of our requests for GF info on ingredients and processes. Our table had both GF and Non-GF eaters and special care was given to the GF food. I ate well, enjoyed the outside balcony table and had no ill effects. Will definitely eat there again.

If you are going for pizza I am sure it's celiac friendly. Otherwise there s NOTHING else on the menu for a celiac- even salads as all the ingredients are pre-prepped. Last time I was at this restaurant in Waikiki I was able to eat their salads but obviously the chain has gone toward the fast food end of the market and there is no room for adapting fir celiacs. In fairness the server knew to warn me and that is a plus!

So the poke I had last night seemed more authentic, but this is CPK, so I wasn't expecting authenticity. Just an easy meal where my kid would be happy and I could relax, knowing I wouldn't get glutened. And that's what I got. Mahalo!

Also, I like their fruit ice tea.

Wonderful location. Great service. Pizza (as quoted by my son the GF pizza connoisseur) was absolutely fabulous. Both of us are celiac and sensitive and we are both just fine. I had the Cobb salad and pizza with him. Items are marked GF.

The GF pizza is the best pizza I've had in my life. The base was nice and crispy and not floury. It was also made using GIG standards and had very minimal risk of cross contamination. Great place, wish I could take it back to Australia.

Safe gluten free option for those with Celiac in Waikiki! While there are plenty of no gluten added options on the menu, there are only four pizzas on the menu that should be considered safe for Celiac. Hey, I'll take it. Pizza while going out to eat is amazing! My pizza crust was a bit underdone, but delicious.

Hit and miss crust. Sometimes it's over cooked and too crisp. Sometimes the crust is too chewey. Sometimes it's just right. They can't make substitutions on the GF pizza without risking cross contamination. I suspect the pizzas are made elsewhere and frozen.

I felt incredibly safe, as the server mentioned they have a separate area where they prepare gluten-free pizzas with separate ingredients and a separate oven. He delivered everyone else’s (non-gf) food first and then said he would go wash his hands before bringing my food back to the table. I got a margherita pizza (and it even had a little gluten-free marker on it). It was absolutely delicious, and I had no reaction.

Really great experience overall.

Tried to order gluten free meals at two different locations on Oahu, and both restaurants claimed that they “could not guarantee” the food would not be contaminated with gluten. Essentially they said that they are NOT gluten free.

The pizza is fairly good for gluten free. It allows me to scratch the pizza itch without getting sick. There are exactly 5 items (all pizza) certified by the gluten intolerance group. There are other items on the menu without gluten containing ingredients, but cross contamination is an issue, so I’ve never tried them.

I used to LOVE this restaurant: pizza, pasta, salads, egg rolls, soup...all delicious!

The service was decent relative to understanding the gluten-free free necessity, but the food - BBQ chicken cauliflower pizza -was an overpriced disappointment … it sure seemed like cooked chicken was just tossed on the top and then smothered with Sweet Baby Ray’s.
