    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.

    They have a small selection of pizzas that are safe for those with extreme sensitivity, plus they will make any of their pizzas on a gluten-free crust for those of us who are less sensitive. It's nice to have that choice. My pizza was quite tasty; the gluten-free crust is good.

    Only 3 options of pizza that are guaranteed GF, prepared separately with full GF items. Had the barbecue chicken pizza, tasty. I do not show symptoms, cannot guarantee.

    Terrible California Pizza Kitchen location. No gluten free pizza offered at this location because the kitchen is "too small." There was a tiny note on the menu that I almost didn't notice that stated this, but it was after we had already sat down & we were starving so we stayed anyway. Had to have yet another salad. Slow service too.

    Wonderful location. Great service. Pizza (as quoted by my son the GF pizza connoisseur) was absolutely fabulous. Both of us are celiac and sensitive and we are both just fine. I had the Cobb salad and pizza with him. Items are marked GF.

    First visit ever to a California Pizza Kitchen. I called ahead and spoke to someone just to see if they acted as though they had a clue. The person who answered was very knowledgable. We asked for a gluten free menu when we were being seated. The regular menu did have some salads and such marked as gluten free. I asked our waiter if I needed to speak to the manager and he assured me he understood and could handle it. We had 2 gluten free pizzas. They were delicious and delivered by the manager. They both had gluten free toothpicks things in them to show they were gluten free. They were delicious! My celiac daughter had no issues. We will be back!

    My go-to when I am craving pizza! Even my non-celiac daughter prefers the gf pizza over the regular. Let them know you are celiac and they are very careful and manger brings your pizza out separately.

    They don't have a separate gf oven and take no precautions to avoid cc...like enclosing the pizza in a gf oven safe bag...not celiac safe.

    Very good service. Ask for the GF menu and they bring you a menu of the pizzas that are made in their dedicated kitchen. I ordered the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza. The server came out to let us know that the pizza got a little too crispy so they were making us a brand new pizza. When the pizza came out it was personally delivered by the manager on duty. It had the right amount of crispyness and tasted food. My mom and I ate the whole pizza and she's not GF!

    I tried the gluten-free pizza, and their crust was the worst gluten-free crust I've ever eaten! It had the consistency of a soggy cracker. I ended up just eating the toppings off of the top. I was very disappointed because I enjoyed California Pizza Kitchen before I was diagnosed with Celiacs.

    Gluten Free pizza is good but expensive!!! Individual size pizza (and we had to get 3) starting at $16.00 for plain and up from there. Most places have gluten free pizza for between $10.00-$12.00 for same size. Would go if only option around due to cost.

    My wife is gluten free, we ate here recently and ordered the gluten free crust. The pizza itself was ok, nothing to write home about, but later that night she was really sick. I don't think they have a dedicated oven or toppings for their gluten free pizza. Their crust might be certified gluten free but there is definitely cross contamination. Please beware if you are celiac.

I also got a wedge salad that said it had gluten free ingredients but couldn't be 100% guaranteed however I didn't get sick. Very pleased with the experience and will be returning

    My son has celiac and loves the certified gluten free cheese pizza. We go there often and staff seems very knowledgable. Their website also provides their carb count which makes it a lot easier since we deal with type 1 diabetes as well. Took us a while to go there because of their reviews. Hopefully, my review will encourage others to give it a try.

    The toppings on my pizza were delicious, but the crust could use a lot of improvement. The crust was burnt around the edges but raw inside. My expectations are usually pretty low, I just appreciate the fact that a restaurant has a gluten free menu. I would recommend the lettuce wraps! They were delicious!

    I feel like the pizza is hit or miss. I've been twice since they re-created their GF pizza. once the crust was chewy and crisp (the best GF pizza crust I've ever had!) and the second time it was spongy and soggy.

    Not sure what the previous negative reviews are complaining about - in my experience so far, having multiple options that are prepared separately from the rest of the food is a rarity, especially in pizza restaurants. Yeah, 4 or 5 options isn't ideal, but being able to easily order and know that your food will be safe is fantastic. The waiter was also very knowledgeable, and explained that they wash all of the gluten-free-area containers separately, and everyone changes gloves/washes hands, etc. when they enter the gluten free area. This is one of the best processes I've seen in a chain restaurant. Plus, the food was awesome. I shared the waldorf chicken salad (labeled gluten-free on the menu, but not one of the GiG certified items) and the gluten free margherita pizza, and both were delicious. Definitely the best gluten free pizza I've had since my celiac diagnosis a few months ago. The only reason I might dock a star would be the price (just a pricier restaurant in general), but I think they deserve higher than a 3-star overall rating, so I'm giving it 5. I am always impressed with and appreciative of restaurants that go out of their way to make things safe, especially when the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about it, too.

    although menu indicates certain items can be made gluten free further discussion with staff indicates no they are/can not...you can have lettuce and mustard vinaigrette safely here. Positive note is an honest manager keeps people from getting sick but menu is misrepresentation of what's truly available gluten free
