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.

My son loves this pizza and crust as one of his favorites. They mark it and have a dedicated area.

We ate here twice during our trip to SF - once in the restaurant and once as take out. No issues with cross contamination and the pizza was tasty!

DO NOT EAT HERE!!! i know that it seems like a quick and easy option for gf but they got our order wrong THREE TIMES. i don’t know why we kept trying honestly- we told the manager that we could’ve been hospitalized because of them giving us gluten pizzas and he responded with phrases like “calm down” and kept cutting me off and talking over me. DO NOT give this business your money please. i also saw the manager go back and yell very rudely at his employees, many of which seemed scared of him, and rightfully so. also the call service is horrible and needs to be fixed in order for mistakes like this to not happen anymore. Zero stars. never returning, and i urge you not to as well.

Edit: I have twice now been sent home with a regular crust pizza after saying I have a gluten allergy. Makes me question the safety of this restaurant.

I absolutely LOVE the gluten free pizza with chickpea crust. The cauliflower crust is good too, but the chickpea crust does a better job of imitating regular pizza crust. I have gone to several CPK’s now and all staff have been knowledgeable and the food is always marked gluten-free. Take and bake pizzas are a great option for lunch the next day. 10/10!
