There is a difference between the regular gluten free pizzas and certified gluten free pizzas. Be sure to specify when ordering. I got the certified GF cheese pizza. It was delicious and they will deliver within the casino. I had mine delivered to bingo. Very good. Did not get sick.

Waitress was knowledgeable about GF pizzas/options and took the allergy seriously. Both GF kids cheese pizza and the California Cobb salad were very good— no belly aches or sickness afterwards. Double checked on GF salad dressings for me, as well. Appreciated the diligence and we will return!

My server wasn’t too knowledgeable about gluten free things aside from the certified gluten free pizzas. BBQ, margherita, pepperoni and cheese. I had the bbq. It was really good. They have a cauliflower crust too that’s supposedly gluten free. I didn’t try it this time. I didn’t get sick and my pizza was pretty tasty. I couldn’t find an allergen info sheet on their salad dressings and nobody seemed to know but I had the ranch and I was fine.

The gluten free pizzas (they have 5 certified) are prepared in a separate area. The best GF pizza crust I have ever had, isn't chewy or tough like others can be.

RUN RUN RUN I ordered a GF pizza to go. I told the manager how sensitive I was and she assured me they would be very careful. When the pizza came out of the oven I saw the man making regular pizza keep the same gloves on and take his hand and proceed to put it in the oregano container and then sprinkle it all over my GF pizza. When the manager brought the pizza to me I asked her about it and she clearly understood the error and apologized. No pizza for me!!!

Three dedicated gf pizza options which were all good. Could have other toppings if not real sensitive and want to take the chance. The warm peach salad was excellent.

I eat CPK all over the country. Very consistent. GF pepperoni with extra toppings is good. Fresh lemonade is safe too. I order through UberEats app.

Gluten free options are shown on the menu. There are only a few items that can be made certified gluten free, but others that are listed showing they make the dishes with gluten free ingredients. One thing I learned this week is that many restaurants make their ranch dressing. When they do, they have not been gluten free. So bring your own ranch if you want a cobbler salad or some ranch to dip your certified gluten free pizza in. I had the mushroom, pepperoni, and sausage certified gluten free pizza and thought it was delicious. I also had some of my husband’s Cobb salad before dressing and it was very good. I did not feel sick or bloated after the meal.

They are extremely aware of celiac and cross contamination. My server informed me that only the gf pizzas are safe and there are only a few pizzas that are gf. They are made in a dedicated gf space and cooked separately from regular pies I had the bbq chicken pizza and it was fine. Not my favorite dough but works in a bind.
