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 Ala Moana location is terrible w/ accommodating gluten free. They suggested to not even eat anything there because cross contamination is so high. The other location at the International Market area was fantastic with precautions!

Ordered takeout from Kahala Mall CPK, told them that I my daughter was celiac and they immediately transferred me to a manager to make sure that her needs were met. Her pizza was completely safe and was even packed in a totally separate bag. She had a good pizza with no problems.

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.

Staff were knowledgeable. Separate pizza menu with 4 gf choices. We had bbq chicken pizza and a pepperoni pizza. Both yum. We also ordered a salad off the normal menu which was gf by ingredient. No reactions. Would definitely go back

Tried the pizza a few times and the crust is never fully cooked. I gave up.

Crust tasted like cardboard. We had to send it back because it wasn't cooked in the middle. Three stars because we didn't get sick, but I've definitely had better pizza.

I've always loved CPK, and I know the GF crust is not exactly like their regular or even thin crust, but I like it. Pizza crust is a personal thing, so I suggest you try it regardless what any review says. The dishes marked as GF are prepared in a separate area (be sure to tell them you want this). Logistically, they have to limit the items in this area, and I understand that. We are a minority. But my favorite pizzas and salads are all on the list, so I am a happy camper. Now they just need a GF dessert, and it'll be perfect.

yes, they have a gf menu consisting of a few pizzas, but the crust is horrible. when it came to the table, it tasted raw. even after I took it home and reheated it for 30 mins, it still tasted horrible. the rest of their gf items are not guaranteed to be gf despite being listed as gf on the menu.

They have a dedicated GF menu but all items must be ordered without modifications to be considered GF. When I ordered I was asked if it was GF for health reasons (versus just a preference) and I said yes. The pizza was delivered by a manager and flagged with a GF toothpick. Slightly burnt around the edges but solid pizza. I’d worry it was normal thin crust if they didn’t take such precautions.

I ordered the gluten free pizza and it was, in fact, gluten free. I did not have any digestive issues. They are very aware of gluten and cross contamination. I will definitely go back.

This restaurant is always great for celiacs! I requested that the kitchen will change gloves/prevent cross contamination when making my pizza and the waiter told me that he was gonna tell the kitchen that even if I didn’t ask. The pizza was delicious too! Highly recommended
