They have a dedicated area for GF pizza, which I appreciate, but I will have to say that after paying a premium price ($19) for a 10", the pizza was disappointing. I'll try again, but that's my first experience and impression.
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.
They have now been gig trained and I love the pizza they have great options. They also will make any pizza on gluten free crust but those ones have a chance of cross contamination. I wish they made the gig pizza for frozen that would be great to see in store.
I have been diagnosed with Celiacs Disease, so choosing to eat gluten-free isn't a trend for me but rather a medical necessity in order to avoid the negative effects on my intestine and consequent miserable symptoms associated with ingesting gluten. I had visited this restaurant as I was staying in the area for a work-related conference. I had thought this would be a great place as I was made aware of their gluten-free menu. I ordered two items off the menu (both of which were labelled 'gluten-free' and made the server aware of the importance of the items being gluten-free due to my celiacs disease. After eating both so-called 'gluten-free' items at the restaurant.... I immediately started to feel very ill as all my symptoms started to return. This was completely disappointing... Despite the meal I ordered being labeled 'gluten-free', it clearly was not (or had cross-contamination) and I ended up suffering for the next couple of days as a result. I will obviously not return to this restaurant, and will also caution others who require a gluten-free diet to stay away from this place as well.
GF pizzas were very good.
If you are going for pizza I am sure it's celiac friendly. Otherwise there s NOTHING else on the menu for a celiac- even salads as all the ingredients are pre-prepped. Last time I was at this restaurant in Waikiki I was able to eat their salads but obviously the chain has gone toward the fast food end of the market and there is no room for adapting fir celiacs. In fairness the server knew to warn me and that is a plus!
Has very limited selection. Left without eating since staff is not educated about cross contamination. My server served bread to another table and with the same hand put down my plate. When confronted manager was amazing but waitress simply couldn't understand the error.
Gluten free pizza is great and celiac safe! However, very limited gluten free options other than pizza.
Awesome gluten free pizza. They offer pizzas made in a dedicated facility or can be made on the spot. Pizza always brought out by manager who is not handling food. They make a very good effort and I've never had a problem despite being very sensitive
excellent gf pizzas and all the staff is savvy on the items marked gf on menu have no gluten ingredients but for fully certified gluten free order off the gf menu. I always worry when there is flour in the air from pizza doughs or bakery items but gf pizzas are wrapped and are fully gf!
So the poke I had last night seemed more authentic, but this is CPK, so I wasn't expecting authenticity. Just an easy meal where my kid would be happy and I could relax, knowing I wouldn't get glutened. And that's what I got. Mahalo! Also, I like their fruit ice tea.
The GF BBQ chicken Pizza was great but crust could be crispier. The grilled vegetable salad was phenomenal, added the grilled chicken but be sure to specify Gluten allergy as the chicken is normally grilled on same grille as wheat tortillas. They will line grille with aluminum foil if requesting GF.
While the pizza they have is delicious and I've never had a bad reaction, they are frequently out of stock of their gluten free pizza crust.
saddly no gf options in the airport stores.
Although it sometimes takes a little longer to get your GF order, it is definitely worth it. We go pretty often and my daughter is always happy with her pizza. The managers there are wonderful and always check on you and bring the food when you order GF. Definitely worth a trip to the mall just for this restaurant.
found out last week I have celiac. this is the first restaurant I've eaten at since. staff was very friendly and explained they have selections on the main menu, but are not celiac friendly; for that they have a separate menu with only a few selections of pizza. Manager came by twice to check on me and asked my honest opinion. when I explained I have nothing to compare, he suggested spin pizza which also is suppose to have GF pizza. the pizza was a little burned around he edges, and the manager offered to remake it. honestly, I didn't think it was terrible just different. I would definitely go back. so far I'm not having any issues to think of cross contamination.
We used to go here for their gluten free pizza. My 4 year old is celiac. We went today and they have pulled the GF pizza from the menu pending a review with GIG to make it better. Disappointing. We had to leave since the remaining GF options aren't really friendly for kids - basically salads. It will be good when the pizza is back, but not until then.
We eat here a lot! I have celiac and I have NEVER gotten sick. The service is typically fantastic, the first couple of times we went in the manager came to the table and explained their gluten free procedures for the kitchen and everything. When we order to-go they always have my pizza box sealed with a gluten free sticker. Best gluten-free crust I have ever had.
good pizza shop. gluten free crusts available. they normally skimp on toppings so it's worth 2$ extra to get a normally topped pizza. recommend the bbq chicken pizza. second visit with still no problems
This was a pretty decent place to eat out, but be aware that if you are celiac or gluten intolerant, you will be limited to a pizza menu with only four choices on it. Make sure and all four the special gluten free pizza menu as these are not shown on the regular menu. If you opt to order something other than a pizza, it will be an entree salad and they had four to choose from that sounded pretty good. I ended up with one of the gluten free pizzas and a wedge salad that was enjoyable. Update 12 hours later - here I am in agony from being glutened by eating here. Changing from four to two stars - no clue what caused it, but I can only guess the caution in meal preparation was not there. Wish people realized how sensitive one can be to gluten, but I suppose eating out is always a risk. Maybe better training for staff would drive this home.
The GF pizza was not the greatest. Tasted just like any other GF pizza I could get in the freezer aisle at the grocery store. They burnt it as well and said that's how they normally cook it. My daughter got the non GF cheese pizza and rated it a 4 out of 10. Can't say we would go back.
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.
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!
