Great pizza! I placed a pick up order. The person on the phone confirmed the allergy. The order was marked when I picked it up and it was great.

Very tasty GF crust. We need to eat dairy-free as well; they don't have dairy-free cheese, but were happy to take what we brought and use it for the pizza. Limited choices for toppings; this isn't the kind of pizzeria where you just select toppings from a list of 20. Instead they have specific selections and combinations available, and only a small number of those are certified GF, though others are probably OK for those who aren't overly sensitive.

They have a dedicated space and dedicated toppings for gluten free pizzas. The crust is a little better than typical gluten free crust. The toppings are pretty good as well. Doesn't even come close to gluten free pizza in Rome but it will satisfy a craving in a pinch.

Great experience for a celiac diner. Dedicated area for gluten free pizzas and separate ingredients just used for GF pizzas. The staff were very friendly and clearly explained their procedures for preventing cross-contamination to me when I asked. The manager brought my meal out personally. Their GF pizza area and ingredients are certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group, which is also noted on their GF menu. Not a huge selection of GF pizzas or the best GF crust I've ever had but a safe/easy dining experience definitely makes up for that!

Pizzas from the gluten-free menu are made in a very dedicated kitchen space. Truly gluten-free. Good pizza.

Pretty decent gf pizza. Not up there with Naked Pizza or Ledos but also not nasty like Z pizza. At least they finally have a crust we can eat.

I tried the gluten free pizza and it was very good. Z Pizza is my favorite GF pizza crust, but I think CPK's is even better than theirs.

CPK has a bunch of salads that are gluten free. They are trained in cross contamination and I have never had a problem eating here! I haven't tried it yet but I have seen a few advertisements for gf pizza at cpk now (jan 2014). My fav salad is the Cobb!

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.
