Best GF pizza crust I've ever had! Certified, too

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!

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!

They take gluten free very seriously at this location! I’ve been a couple times to get their gluten free pizza, and the staff has been very knowledgeable every time. They have a separate gluten free menu they can give you, as well as a separate oven in the kitchen where they cook gluten free pizzas. They always stick a little “gluten free” sign in your pizza as well.

The gluten free cauliflower crust is amazing! I would honestly prefer it over regular crust, it tastes better and is healthier. I always get the margherita pizza and love it.

I must add though that I don’t generally get sick if I have a bit of cross contamination, I am just judging off of how well-informed they are and how seriously they take it.

They have 5 gf pizzas that are part of their “certified” gluten free pizzas. There are also other menu items marked gluten free but are not certified. Our pizzas came out with “gluten free” flags on them. They didn’t have the gluten free menus at this location but we referenced their website and our server knew right away which 5 were gf.

There are 5 “certified” gluten free pizzas available in 2 sizes (kids size or regular size).

I didn’t see any dairy free options for pizzas if you are also dairy free (try mellow mushroom if you need gf/df).

My husband has celiac and cannot have dairy or gluten. After going over his allergies, they still put dressing with dairy on his salad. Bc they did not have dine in, we go it to go and did not realize the dressing was there until we left. He did eat the salad bc the dressing was in a separate container and hoped he would be ok. However, he had a bad reaction. There was no one in the restaurant. If they can’t get it right when they don’t have any customers, I would not trust them when they are busy.

This is not the best gluten free pizza crust, being a bit soggy. But it allows me to scratch the pizza itch without getting sick.

They have a “gluten free menu” and then a Gluten Free Menu, where all the ingredients are handled in a way to prevent cross contamination. When I told the server I was celiac, they brought out the manager to discuss safe options for me.

I had never been here before, it was a lot nicer than I thought it would be. I thought it would be more like a pizza hut? It was very nice, a little on the pricey side, though.

Their training is impeccable. Such a relief to be able to eat a meal out with friends and not feel stressed about it. I love that they label “made without gluten containing ingredients” differently from their celiac safe choices (which is a small but good selection of cauliflower crust pizzas.) All restaurants should follow their excellent model!

i’ve eaten this pizza several times without a reaction (at the Ashford-Dunwoody location in Atlanta). They have a separate pizza station for preparing GF pizza. It goes in the same oven as other pizza but in its own pan.. The thing that worries me the most is when they are preparing at the gluten-free station, their bellies are covered with flour for making the regular pizzas. But again I haven’t gotten sick from this location.

I forgotten what a real pizza taste like, but I love the gluten-free pizza from CPK. The only pizza in Atlanta where I like the sausage. Note the frozen version of the sausage pepperoni and mushroom from the store, is nowhere close to the pizza they make at the restaurant.

We decided to eat here as we needed a quick dinner option and they had tables open. The menu says they are able to accommodate allergies, however our server was not knowledgeable about celiac and was trying to offer me salads that didn’t even have a gluten free symbol by them. My husband got up and asked for a manager while the server was still talking to me because she was ignoring him when he tried to talk. The manager was very helpful and accommodating. She offered for my pizza to be cooked on a pan so that it wasn’t touching the oven surface. She also recommended that I only get cheese or a couple ingredients to minimize risk of contamination. So although there weren’t many options for me, she was transparent about what they could provide and I ended up not getting sick. Would not recommend this location for celiacs.

Excellent staff knowledge. Not for this venue as they have full understanding but in general Be sure to specify when you go anywhere to eat that you are a medically diagnosed coeliac and not just gluten friendly which indicates life choice. Traveling around USA has proven more challenging than ever anticipated. We will be eating here as good cross section on menu available. Makes travelling life so much easier. Thank you

My kid was so excited to try this place and adored their cauliflower crust—however even after asking them to ensure it’s gluten free, they did not use their dedicated space to make his. Apparently you have to be very explicit and tell them to make sure they use their allergy protocols. Just saying gluten free isn’t enough for them to do so. He was very ill after.
