They are always 100% safe with the pizza and you will not get sick. Cheese pizza is good.

I have celiac. I ordered my all-time favorite CPK pizza, BBQ chicken, and enjoyed every bite. They knew exactly what they were doing and I felt fine after my meal.

They have 6 gluten-free pizza options that they told me were certified gluten-free - I had the Margherita and it was absolutely delicious! I am celiac and had no bad reaction after eating the pizza.

The pizza was amazing!!! They have 5 special gluten-free pizzas and some items on their regular menu with GF so it's easy to determine what you can eat! The staff was great and informed and so was the manager. Great gluten-free service! Would totally recommend coming to this location... I'll definitely be going back!

Bartender was super helpful and patient. Made sure to tell the kitchen. I watched my pizza be cooked in its own pan in the oven.

CPK is consistently a good chain to eat gluten free safely. The previous review saying that they don’t use precautions is incorrect. You always need to specify that you have an allergy when you are Celiac so people understand you aren’t gluten free to try it out.

I’ve never been sick at any CPK I’ve eaten at and I love their mushroom pepperoni sausage pizza.

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!

We ordered a sausage pepperoni with fresh herbs GF pizza. After 25 minutes they brought a standard gluten pizza. The waitress conferred with the line cook and the pizza chef. No explanation to us but we saw it happen. We waited another 25 minutes and a manager brought us a GF pizza with a burned crust, laughably NOT like the photo as to amount of ingredients shown on menu and a few dried herbs that were overdone not fresh. No apology, No refills on soda and no discount. Never again!
