such good cauliflower crust!! super crispy and good. when i ordered my pizza, the waitress assured me all items were GF. then when my pizza was served, the manager brought it on a separate plate and assured me it was completely GF. i’ve ate here multiple times and have had no issues and i’m very skeptical when eating out!! definitely recommend
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.
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.
Great staff- very knowledgable about coeliac disease and cross contamination. 4 pizzas that are prepared separately so totally safe. BBQ chicken pizza was great. The waitress also brought me a surprise gf dessert- ice cream/cream and choc fudge sauce! Definitely a safe place to go!
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.
After reviews on this app and speaking to staff for ourselves, we decided to give CPK a try. Ordered the Gluten-free BBQ Chicken pizza and were very pleased that our Nima tester gave us a smile. They have a separate prep area and we felt confident in their knowledge of cross-contamination. Alex (their trainer) and Sam (manager) were absolutely amazing in both explaining their procedures and overseeing our pizza prep. Ate there a 2nd time. Nima tested gluten. We had added pineapple and think that could have been the cause. Sam was appalled and bent over backwards to reassure and personally take care of the 2nd pizza (we opted for no pineapple that time). That one tested safe. Nice to share this app with Sam. I feel like she truly cared about Celiac safety.
God glutenfri pizza. Egen pizzameny og personalet hadde bra kunnskap om hva jeg kunne spise og ikke, og hvordan pizzaen ble tilbredt. Ikke det største utvalget, men absolutt godt nok for meg! Verdt et besøk.
The waitress was knowledgeable enough to ask if it was an allergy but they failed to deliver a gf pizza. I was so violently ill. Never eat here if you have celiacs. It IS NOT SAFE!!!
Do not trust this CPK , they were grabbing toppings from the same line as the gluten pizzas. They have a lack of training on cross contamination. Had to give my pizza away to some one else. Do not trust this place.
Oh my! I’m not close to any location! While out of town I randomly noticed Restaurant close to me! Seriously... Amazing! I’ve had others and can’t begin to compare!!! Thank you, thank you! I might even indulge in lunch before going home tomorrow! ❤️
My sister and I shared two of their certified GF pizzas. Both were delivered by a manager who explained their GF procedures. The two we had were very tasty. Only 4 options that are certified GF, but if you aren't celiac they can make any other pizza with the GF crust.
They offer a menu of options certified by The Gluten Intolerance Group. I feel pretty safe eating here if I eat of the certified menu and I haven't gotten sick. I have also tested with my Nima and it has tested fine. The gluten free cauliflower crust is better than that sounds!
The gluten free pizza was fantastic for me with the pepperoni was wonderfully spicy. The only thing they guarantee is gluten free is the pizza which is prepared separately. There are other gluten free options, well noted on the menu,, but they are made in a shared kitchen. Both indoor and outdoor seating. 2 hour free parking with validation, which was plenty of time.
They only got 2 stars because they are celiac friendly. Other then that, I will not go back. It was like eating dry crunchy cardboard for $20. Way overpriced and the pizza was terrible. They have a certified GF menu and on the regular menu were items with no gluten ingredients.
We went to CPK at Ala Moana Centre today and were really impressed. They have a certified GF menu, ask if it’s a preference or an allergy, and have a manager bring out any allergy orders while wearing gloves. The pizza was good and a good size. Highly recommend.
Not safe at all for celiac—even salads. Great management and kitchen staff that urged me they would not even feel comfortable serving me salad bc of the cross contact in the kitchen. No separate space for cooking. Thank you for full disclosure!!
*Update as of 8/12/19: I recently learned that they have more than one cauliflower crust and that it’s imperative to specify that one is seeking the CERTIFIED GLUTEN FREE crust or you might not get it. That’s entirely too confusing to call them the same thing but it not actually be the same item. On another note, although they previously had a tasty GF cauliflower crust, they changed the recipe and now it’s as if there’s no trace of a rice or other GF flour in it so it’s mushy like some kind of a semi-firm flat steamed veggie disc. I had to reheat the pizza we took to go and was wishing we hadn’t also purchased one of their Take and Bake pizzas as well because we had to practically burn both pizzas to get their crusts to mildly firm up. To make matters worse, the cauliflower crust that previously didn’t taste of cauliflower at all (which was awesome), now has a very strong cauliflower (almost broccoli like) taste - neither of which my child and I (both celiac) are fans of or desire to taste on our pizzas. I contacted the main number and confirmed that this change is recent as of this summer and is not a fluke. Besides the potential for an error to take place with regards to which crust one gets, the change in crust taste and texture was such a huge disappointment for us. We won’t be returning. April 2019: Not a huge GF menu but they do have certified gluten free pizzas in both a larger size and in a kids size that includes a kid sized drink. The crust is a cauliflower crust and was surprisingly tasty. (I can’t stand the taste of cauliflower, but love the crust.) My daughter and I both have celiac and neither of us have had a reaction any of the times we have ordered there. I spoke with a manager the last time we ordered (a couple of weeks ago) and he was extremely friendly and interested in keeping us free of gluten. It’s the only local place we feel safe eating pizza anymore.
One of my go to restaurants for gluten free. Kind of pricey but great food and several pizza options
I ordered the BBQ Chicken Pizza and it was really good. They have 3 gluten free pizza options and items on the regular menu have a gluten free designation so you know if you can order it. They cook the GF items separately. Only negative was it took a long time for the food to arrive and they said the GF items take longer.
Pretty good for a cheap pizza place. It’s always a good last option.
They have the best pizza ever ! Tastes like real pizza. I got gluten free pepperoni, they cook the pizzas in their own section completely seperate from gluten. Staff were super friendly and happy to help as well. Highly recommend.
This location does have a cauliflower crust option which is gluten free. HOWEVER, CELIACS BE WARNED: they prepare this crust with all the other pizzas making it NOT GLUTEN FREE for those with an allergy. Of note, we did not find a single place in the airport that served gluten free so we were forced to live off of chips and fruit.
My kids and I ordered curbside service. All the pizzas were gluten free (pepperoni, sausage/pepperoni and cheese). We didn’t get sick, that’s always our main concern. It wasn’t the best pizza I’ve ever had, but it was good.
I’ve eaten here in the past. Each time I get the certified gluten free bbq pizza. The first two times, the manager brought the pizza out and was very helpful. However this last time I asked for a gluten free pizza and was just given my pizza by a random server and there was no stick stating that it was gluten free. I decided to ask another sever if they could check for me. In fact it was not certified gluten free. Finally the pizza was brought out by the kitchen manager. They may have just been having an off day. But always double check!
