What a pleasant surprise to discover that CPK has (very good) gluten free pizza and it’s certified. The masher brought out my pizza with gloves on and it had a pick designating it as gluten free. He also brought out my food separate from my boyfriends, just to make drier there was so chance of contamination. They clearly have a good process and train the staff well!
The classic bbq chicken pizza was good. CPK only has GF cauliflower crust, but it’s thin, crispy and delicious. I’ve never had any issues at this location. They handle GF orders very seriously. Also, one pizza is the perfect size to split if you’re on a date.
Safe gf pizza. I wish they also had safe salad, but when I asked, she said only the pizza ordered from the gf certified menu can be guaranteed safe - no salads. Pizza was fine, nothing special. A safe (yet kind of boring) place to go when you’re in the city.
Update effective Fall 2018: they got rid of the good GF crust and the new allegedly GF cauliflower crust makes me sick 100% of the time. Off the safe list. Original review: Never a problem and love the GF crust!
I have eaten here safely before. This time my gluten free pizza tested positive. This was one of those times (you celiacs know what I mean) that I actually cried. Lol. Be careful here. Any pizza place has a real risk for cross contamination.
I’m celiac and dairy free, nothing in there for me, or others with my same condition.. honestly they’d shouldn’t be recommended for celiacs.. not much of anything in there for celiacs , they’d should improve their service for celiacs, population is growing on celiacs.
The Long Beach Marina CPK no longer has the certified gluten free stamp of approval on there menus anymore. They no longer had gluten-free pizza options. They told me they can make any pizza using a cauliflower crust. I asked if they have a separate cooking space for the pizza and they said no. We had to leave because my trust in the preparation is no longer with the establishment.
They had me speak with a manager right away when I told them I was had a “gluten allergy” (the server didn’t know what Celiac is but the manager did). They assured me they prep in a separate area and take it very serious. Their pizzas are certified GF! The pizza was actually quite good. Thin crust of course but it didn’t taste like cardboard.
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.
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
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
