We ordered a sausage pepperoni with fresh herbs GF pizza. After 25 minutes they brought a standard gluten pizza. The waitress conferred with the line cook and the pizza chef. No explanation to us but we saw it happen. We waited another 25 minutes and a manager brought us a GF pizza with a burned crust, laughably NOT like the photo as to amount of ingredients shown on menu and a few dried herbs that were overdone not fresh. No apology, No refills on soda and no discount. Never again!

They have the GIG certification and take lots of precautions. Eat here often and have never gotten sick. Their traditional GF crust is OK but their new cauliflower crust is delicious! Gets nice and crispy and you can get their signature BBQ chicken pizza on the Gluten Free Menu.

I wasn't glutened, which of course is the biggest deal, but CPK always over-cooks the gluten free pizza crusts. Every time we've eaten there we've been served a badly burned pizza. It's just not worth the money.

I have extreme sensitivity and when I ate here I had no issues. The manager comes out to insure customers that the GF pizza is made away from and cross contaminates. I ate here 4months ago and no problems.

The gluten free crust is not very good. Kind of like eating cardboard.

I know it says there is no gluten free pizza dough so all they have that's gluten free is salads. Almost every restaurant has gluten free salads. So what's so special about CPK's gluten free menu?

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.

Only the GF pizza is made and baked using procedures approved by the Gluten Intolerance Group, despite other menu items marked as gluten free. One of the few places I trust to get pizza from. I’ve never gotten sick from it.
