Is this a gluten free cheesecake recipe? 

Yes! The great thing about using gluten free pretzels for the crust is that you end up with a gluten free cheesecake. If you don’t need to worry about the gluten you can use a regular type of pretzels for the crust, whatever works best for you will do fine in these cheesecakes. 

Can I make this cheesecake in advance? 

You can make this strawberry cheesecake in advance if you like. It needs some time to chill so making it beforehand is wise. 

I’d also recommend holding off on putting the toppings on until the day that you are going to serve the majority of the cheesecake. It just makes for a more fresh and put together appearance overall!
