In terms of GF pizza, CPK is great. They have the GF pizza prepared separately, and the staff seem very knowledgeable about the whole “gluten free” and “celiac” thing. If you’re going there looking for something other than pizza, that’s when you’ll be disappointed. They don’t have many other options if you are strictly gluten free. If “gluten free” is only a preference, then they can adjust several of the items on the main menu to accommodate that, but it won’t be prepared separately. The GF pizza seems to be the only main dish that’s 100% gluten free, but it’s definitely worth it! -Their pizza was my brother’s favorite out of all the other GF pizzas we’ve tried- and that’s saying something. (Their strawberry cooler, by the way, is absolutely delicious, too.)

The pizza is prepared seperately. It is nice that they are celiac friendly. I appreciate that the manager brings out the pizza. I am careful to ask them not to burn the pizza. I have felt it was overcooked at times. It is not my favorite gluten free crust, but I love the flavor of the BBQ chicken pizza.

Food was great!! They have a separate gig approved and strafed trained menu of 3 pizzas including their famous BBQ chicken. Then on their reg menu they mark items that are gf. They have salads, chips (gf made at separate location no cross contamination) and guacamole The server asked if we were highly allergic and needed to watch cross contamination. I felt safe and have eaten there twice with no problems.

Delicious! High quality food. Always specify if you have an allergy/celiac vs a gluten free preference. There is a rewards card here but I haven't used it enough to notice the benefits.

GF pizza was very good. Dough was a little thicker not like most crispy thin gf crusts. Had lots of other options and the staff was very knowledgable.

The manager Mike was fabulous. He explained to me in detail that they prep separately, use a clean pizza cutter, and place an aluminum cover over the pizza in the oven to prevent cross contamination. They have gluten free certified pizzas (triangles on menu). Mike was very patient and totally understood the importance.

The servers, cook, and hostess went above and beyond to try to help me find a safe way to eat here! I was hungry and desperate. They were not very knowledgeable about GF options or celiac disease, but after some back and forth and lots of checking with the cook, they made me a cheese pizza on cauliflower crust. Precautions taken: hand washing, changed gloves, made my pizza on a separate pan so it never touched the prep surfaces. They also put down some parchment paper in the oven underneath my pizza since the oven often gets flour on it from other pizzas. Not the most ideal meal for safety, but I was starving and they were willing to listen and try to help which I appreciated!

Very good salads and very good GF pizza. Thin crust of course, but texture was great. We got the half size salads BTW. The full size are huge.

Solid choice. No gluten issues. My food came out separate and marked. I have eaten at different locations so I was not worried about cross contamination but some people may be concerned
