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.

This is a certified GF restaurant—they serve wheat but the gf foundation people approved them. It’s legitimate. Manager personally came out to let me know it’s GF. Pizza was really good too!

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!!

Hit and miss...it just depends on who’s working the kitchen and if they take food allergies seriously.

*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.

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.

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.

Can't complain! Pizza was quite delicious and I didn't get sick. Service was decent. They're part of the gluten free certification program which is cool.

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!

I’ve gotten sick the last two times I’ve eaten here!! I figured the first time might have been a fluke cross contamination, but after the second time I’m done with CPK.

So good for Celiac's because their cooking procedures are certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group! Make sure you ask for the GF menu, because only the pizzas on this smaller menu will be prepared using these special procedures. Each time I eat here a manager brings out my pizza, making me feel extra safe! CPK is always a go-to :)

The pizza was really good, but expensive. There were 5 pizzas to choose from, and my bill for my pizza was $20. That’s way more than I would typically spend on a pizza (especially when the “normal” version of the same pizza is $13). It’s really frustrating when places up-charge GF so much, it’s not like we have much of a choice.

Great food, the crust is cauliflower but personally I can’t tell the difference. Definitely recommend it if your in the area.

Love the gluten free pizzas here!! Always tastes great, but I had to take away one star because the crust is much thinner that I like (it's really thin even for gluten free, which is normally thin anyway) and the cost is ridiculous for such a small amount of of pizza. But the pizzas are awesome and cooked specially to prevent cross contamination.

I had the Bahn Mi bowl. It was delicious and the server told me before and after he brought the food that the cooks wore gloves and made sure everything was clean. I did not get sick. There are cauliflower pizza crusts but I cannot have dairy. There are several other gluten free options.

Our waiter was knowledgeable about celiac, gluten and their safe handling process. They change gloves, have dedicated kitchen space. Their pizzas are certified gluten free and they have several other non pizza menu items to choose from. Our entire family is gluten free and we had a great experience here.

So the service was slow and the waiter didn’t seem too with it, but since it had good reviews for GF dining, I still felt okay ordering the food for our daughter with celiac. Turns out, the food was safe and she had zero reaction. I think we ordered her a GF pizza. Since it seems to be a safe place to dine for people with celiac I give it 5 stars and we would go back again.

Ate here a few days ago with our 14 yo celiac daughter. We typically eat at CPK’s when we are traveling because we have always had great experiences. This location was no different than others we have visited. Our daughter had a pizza. My husband and I had a salad that was also gluten free and our son had the kids gluten free pizza. No reactions from the celiac. We would eat here again.

The options on the menu are limited (without modifications) but the food was good. I tried a pizza and it was very different (better) than the boxed version at the store. Staff was friendly and I did not get sick.

Pizza is just okay - always burnt around the entire outside. I’ve been told the Caesar salad dressing isn’t gluten free which is a bummer!

You have to ask for the gluten-free menu. Just the pizzas are gluten-free certified.

If you are gluten and dairy free be warned - while they have “certified gluten free” pizzas, there is cheese inside the cauliflower crust, so pizza is not an option. There are some other options that are gluten and dairy free, but they are not certified. The meal I had was okay, but I was disappointed by the lack of pizza offerings. Seems odd that they would offer certified gf pizzas that aren’t an option for many people who need to avoid gluten since dairy is frequently an issue for the same folks.

They do not have many options for gluten allergy. However I did have the sausage mushroom pizza and it was pretty good and more importantly I did not get sick. Just wish there were more choices.
