    I got a "Certified gluten-free" pizza from their GF pizza list. (4 on the list) I got the pizza to go. It was delicious! The crust is obviously made off-site and is really good! I got the BBQ Chicken gf pizza and I had no issues.

    CPK is usually one of my favorite places to go because it's certified gluten-free, it's tasty and I'm never gotten sick. Until now. Last night I ordered one of the certified gluten-free pizzas off the special gluten-free menu. I had two slices of it and realized there were green onions under the crust on my plate. I instantly knew it was trouble. I hoped for the best assuming maybe just maybe only that green onion happened to touch my plate. I always show symptoms 24 hours after eating bad food and sure enough 24 hours later, im currently sick to my stomach. I can only assume that they did not use safe practices and that they cross contaminated my food. Not going back to this location.

    I had two items off the gluten free menu and immediately after I had a reaction. Please be sure that there is no cross contamination. I will speak to a manager about this in more detail. I really love cpk and would hate to not be able to eat there.

    Great pizza, great experience! I spoke with the manager on the phone before eating here, and she told me they have a separate area in the kitchen for preparing their CERTIFIED gluten free pizzas, and extensive procedures in place to prevent cross contamination (approved by the Gluten Intolerance Group, no less!), including changing gloves and using separate utensils. I asked for the manager when I got there, and she let our server know I have a gluten allergy. There are 5 different pizzas on the certified gf menu, and I felt pretty darn safe selecting from one of these. IMPORTANT: As far as I know the gf pizzas are ONLY gf if you order off the certified gf menu, and don't ask for any substitutions or additions. For example, if you ask for additional toppings, they would likely have to get them from the main part of the kitchen, so the pizza would no longer be considered gf. Also, keep in mind that everything marked gf on the regular menu only contains "no gluten ingredients," so ordering off the regular menu could be risky if you have celiac or gluten intolerance. Now for the fun part! The manager herself brought our pizzas out, and they had a little flag in them that said Gluten Free. I had the Margherita pizza. The cauliflower crust was thin and crispy with a pleasant chew, just like regular thin crust pizza. Came out piping hot with deliciously gooey cheese! It was honestly better than a lot of regular pizzas I've had before I was diagnosed, and I felt great afterwards!

    I asked for the GF menu and was very reassured with the certified safe range. The staff were very knowledgeable and reassured me that my pizza had been made separately. I just had the GF margarita and it was delicious! Non CD husband also enjoyed his normal pizza.

    Not a huge GF menu but they do have certified gluten free pizzas in both a larger size and in a kids size that includes a kid sized drink. The crust is a cauliflower crust and was surprisingly tasty. (I can’t stand the taste of cauliflower, but love the crust.) My daughter and I both have celiac and neither of us have had a reaction any of the times we have ordered there. I spoke with a manager the last time we ordered (a couple of weeks ago) and he was extremely friendly and interested in keeping us free of gluten. It’s the only local place we feel safe eating pizza anymore.

    Wish they had more variety but it’s amazing that they have certified gf pizzas made in a dedicated area. Pricey for a little pizza but worth it to know my kids can eat safely. As always, talk to the manager and request a gf menu. Let them know it’s a necessity and not a preference.

    I specifically requested a Gluten Free pizza, saying it was an allergy and not a preference due to my Celiac's. I know at one time they carried a GF crust that was not cauliflower so when my food arrived, I assumed it was that. I questioned the waitress just to be sure, because my intuition was that something was off. She assured me everything was fine. I had almost eaten the whole thing when I was told that it was not gluten free. The manager pretended to act shocked, had me fill out an incident report, but also told me I should have asked for the GF menu in the first place. I got sick in the bathroom before I left the restaurant and I am still feeling sick. They didn't take responsibility for the negligence and I wouldn't wish this upon anyone.

    We came here our first night in Waikiki. We had the BBQ pizza on GF cauliflower crust and the Italian sausage option. Our server handed us a menu that had the GF options on it. The server seemed super rushed and not interested in our allergies, so we were nervous she wouldn't talk to kitchen and take precautions about cross contamination, but the food was good and no reactions. We wouldn't eat here by choice, just because it wasn't very special or exciting, but the flavor was good and we didn't get sick - just not anything really worth craving again.

    We had the privilege to order a gluten free cauliflower crust pizza with the General Manager, Brett Reed. Our daughter has several allergies and Mr. Reed personally went back to talk with the cooks in regards to her allergies. He was so incredible and we really felt at ease ordering with him as he was very much aware of allergy safety. We will be returning here.

    We came here expecting very good gluten free pizza based on what we had heard from others. However, the GF pizza was just on their cauliflower crust, which although fine, was quite flat and a little oily. Also, the cauliflower crust contains both eggs and milk, so if that is a problem for you, there is nothing you can have here except for salads. They were cautious and careful about our gluten free order. In general if you have other allergies, this is not the best place, both because of the ingredients of the crust and because when we asked to change up some toppings our server got a little touchy and reminded us forcefully that CPK does not have a design-your-own pizza option.

    The gluten free menu was kind of lacking, only having pizza options and like a grilled chicken option plus salads, but I just got a plain pie. Was nice because a manager has to oversee and cook the entire gluten free meal and she came out with the pizza letting me know that. My only problem was that it was overpriced ($16 for a small cheese pizza) but I guess that’s expected in the middle of Los Angeles.

    We usually have luck at cpk, but at this location, the kitchen did not follow gf procedures. The waiter did not seem apologetic, but the manager came out and apologized and comped our meal. She said she didnt know what went wrong in the preparation. Luckily, our daughter did not get sick, but we were pretty frustrated that their kitchen staff did not know proper procedures. I would stay away. Ft Lauderdale has other options for GF.

    Not too many options as far as pizza types go. We got the BBQ Chicken GF option. The crust is super thin and was a bit too burned on the end. We had requested added bacon and it wasn’t on there. Overall good flavor and a nice portion size. We split one, and three slices each was sufficient and filling.

We was very impressed about how seriously they take the gluten free order. The manager brought my wife’s food to the table and explained exactly how it was prepared in the kitchen. This CPK in Tempe marketplace is a great place for those who has celiac disease.

    At first our server did not seem to understand the importance of our needing my daughter’s meal to be completely gluten-free (because she’s a Celiac), so we asked to speak to the manager, just to be sure her meal would be handled properly. The manager, a very young woman came out and assured us it would. She not only took care of her meal personally, she brought it out to my daughter herself AND came to check up on her and our table later. We are new to this whole gluten-free & Celiac “thing,” as my daughter has just been diagnosed, but I would recommend CPK and go back to eat at this location.
