I was put off my the menu and lack of gf options but the waiter assured me that they would take cross contamination precautions. I ended up with a lovely salad and rather tasty cauliflower crust chicken bbq pizza! Enough for next day lunch too! Will definetly go back and no symptoms.

My daughter went here for a school lunch. She doesn’t like pizza so I was worried but she ordered the gf salmon, told them of her allergy. She came home saying it was really good and she did not get sick at all. We have ordered the pizza online and it is always labeled and taped for safety.

CPK is certified by GIG and every employee takes a course on gluten free food preparation and have to pass an exam. They have a separate kitchen in each location with only dedicated gf items, even so far as having a filtration system so gluten flour doesn't come through the vents. I've eaten at 10+ locations, including this one, and never been sick. I've always had a good experience here!

Order a traditional cheese pizza on their gluten-free cauliflower crust. Pizza came out and looked delicious. I tried to cut a small bite off of a slice and it was very hard. I ate one bit and it was so dry and rough that it scraped my throat all the way down. Manager took the price off our bill and gave me a gift card for a return visit. Not sure if I’ll give it another try. So disappointed!

We ate here because our flight got in late and we were too tired and hungry to search further. My husband and I split a pizza and each had a wedge salad. I realize it’s a chain but man, no thought or love went into the food. On the bright side, the place was dirty and smelled like an old dishrag.

Awesome experience multiple times. They have a separate counter for preparing GF pizza and the certified GF ingredients are kept separate. Never had a reaction. They follow ultimate safety practices.
