    The first incarnation of California Pizza Kitchen's gluten-free pizza tasted awful and made me horribly sick. This time around, they've done everything right, and the pizzas are not only made properly, but they are downright tasty. The BBQ chicken pizza is definitely one of my favorites!

    wife had GF salad and was assured even dressing was gf-some made her react horribly-CPK corp responded to inquiry, now waiting for local site to follow uo at corp's request.

    California Pizza Kitchen had a Gluten free pizza a couple of years ago and didn't do it right. They pulled the pizza and went to GiG to do it right the second time. I feel like they really care and worked hard to be safe. The staff was knowledgeable and very careful with my sons food. The pizza is cooked in a rimmed pan so it doesn't touch any other pizza. They also only use rice flour to roll out all their pizzas so no risk of wheat flour in the air. They also use color coded utensils so no chance of using a gluten contaminated pizza cutter. And the pizza tasted wonderful! My son wants to go every day!

    I went here hoping for a decent gluten free meal on the road but was disappointed. They only have 5 pizzas that are 'certified' gluten free. I ate the bbq chicken and regretted it later when I got sick. I wouldn't eat here, don't think they really know how to prepare food safely.

    Not happy with the Fashion valley location. Came in early and explained that I was not gf I am a celiac asked how they handled that they said they had a GF menu that was certified but did not specify that it was only the pizza (I found out this after I received my meal). I spoke with the chef and manager as I ordered they assured me no cross contamination. When I got my meal all there was on the plate was chicken, lettuce and avocado. I asked once again about the chicken and if I could get the asparagus. When talking with the same chef again she then said the only thing certified GF and prepared in the GF area was the chicken and the rest of the salad was prepared in other parts of the kitchen and could be contaminated. I returned the salad and decided not to eat due to their lack of understanding.

    Worst gluten free pizza I've have so far. Paid $14.23 for the gluten free pepperoni. The crust tasted like powder in my mouth and they were skimpy on toppings. Had to ask for more pepperonis. And to top it off my stomach was not okay. I'm gluten intolerant so I definitely would say no for those with celiac.

    I've always loved CPK, and I know the GF crust is not exactly like their regular or even thin crust, but I like it. Pizza crust is a personal thing, so I suggest you try it regardless what any review says. The dishes marked as GF are prepared in a separate area (be sure to tell them you want this). Logistically, they have to limit the items in this area, and I understand that. We are a minority. But my favorite pizzas and salads are all on the list, so I am a happy camper. Now they just need a GF dessert, and it'll be perfect.

    This place is great for gluten free. My family and I have been eating here for a few months since we found out they have gluten free options. My dad is not gluten free and he liked the gluten free crust better than the regular crust. They're very careful with cross-contamination and I haven't had a problem here yet. I would highly recommend this place for a gluten free family.

    Worst gluten free crust I have ever eaten. It's like eating cardboard. I definitely would not recommend it. Their salads are fairly safe, but make sure you double check the dressings. The staff isn't very knowledgeable about which items are gluten free, so I recommend bypassing the server and going straight to the manager.

    Pizza is only dedicated GF option. This was my first time at CPK. Had margherita pizza. Was not good. Big blobs of tomato in some places and "bald" in others. Dough around outside was ok but center was too thick and tasted terrible. Get better GF pizza from local place near home. Disappointed!

    The worst gf pizza crust ever! Looked like a round cutout of foam core poster board and had as much flavor. My pizza was to come with fresh basil and I was told it wouldn't be from the gf area of the kitchen. The manager didn't charge me for the pizza or the coffee I never received. He tried to tell me all gf crust tastes like that. I explained that I'd eaten delicious gf pizza at other places. If PIZZA is in their name they should at least offer an edible crust! Very disappointing. I wrote the company.

    I usually just get the Moroccan chicken salad, which is quite delicious. When they first offered GF pizza, I tried it. It was pretty good but dry inside, greasy outside. At least they were careful, and I didn't get sick. The manager did come out and explained their strict safety process, which I appreciated. Perhaps they they have improved their recipe.

    All pizzas can technically be GF, and they offer 4 (Margarita, Pepperoni, BBQ Chicken, and Mushroom/Sausage I think) that are guaranteed to be prepared according to strict safety measures/without cross contamination. The manager brings out GF orders and it's always great. In my opinion, CPK is definitely up there with the best GF pizza. They also have a few GF "small plates." Biggest downside is that there IS an additional charge for the GF pizza.

    I'm glad they have GF pizzas but only limited. I wish they offered more like pasta or any appetizers. I was able to order the lettuce wraps with chicken and the sauce on the side! A bit bland but it works! It's true, the GF pizza needs improvement. I ordered the BBQ chicken pizza but no cheeses since I can't do dairy.

    Two positive experiences eating the gf Margherita pizza with two gf people. Kitchen manager came out to introduce himself. They're GIG trained and certified, and take good allergies very seriously. The pizza is very good. Chose the least amount of toppings to lessen the cross contam risk.

    No idea why the rating for this is so low. CPK now offers GF pizza and it is possibly the best I've ever had. 4 pizza flavors (including BBQ chicken and margherita) can be prepared in a separate area and are celiac safe. The manager handles all orders for those with allergies. These GF pizzas cost a little more than the non-GF but they are about the same size (pretty big, I can usually only eat about half). A few other GF appetizers are marked on the normal menu, including their white corn guac and chips, which was great. Furthermore, ALL of their pizzas can actually be prepared on GF crust--they just can't prepare these in a separate area. So if you have a milder intolerance rather than celiac disease, you'd have even more pizza options.
