My husband and I had a great experience here. We ordered the gluten free BBQ chicken pizza and it was excellent! The staff was not extremely knowledgable on gluten sensitivity in general, however their service was good and I was not glutened. I would return.
Pizza was good, even by my gluten eating spouse's standards. The service was slow.
This was my first experience with California Pizza. At first it seemed very promising, but that didn't last long. After we sat at our table we noticed how close the next table was to us and the only way to get to the customers behind was to walk through. It was maybe a 2 1/2ft gap. So to have the employees walking within brushing your side's isn't pleasant. The menu looked really good so ordered a gluten free mushroom pizza. Once biting into it the topping were nice and hot but the dough was cold and uncooked. Told my waitress and she brought over the manager and he said I can have another right to you. Before bringing it out he told me the issue was that they get their gluten free dough frozen and they forgot to thaw it out! So he said that they would warm it up before placing it in the oven. After getting my second pizza it ended up being the same exact way, hot topping-cold dough. The manager was very nice and compted the pizza and apologized so the management is ok. As far as preparing the food I can say I don't think that they are gluten free certified or at least will not be returning to find out if they get better in the future.
GIG trained? I cannot believe that.
This location doesn't offer gluten free. Good luck finding food in terminal 2.
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
Absolutely LOVE their pizza. I always get it with a glass of wine :) A friend from DC told me this was her favorite gf pizza and I have to agree! Even my non celiac boyfriend orders his pizza gluten free because he loves it (and we can share!). Knowledgable about cross contamination, they told me they take all of the pizzas out of the brick oven JUST to cook mine gf.
While their options for celiacs are limited, they are good. Their server was able to explain how they prepped the food separately and asked to understand more about the disease, as she said an increasing number of people needing GF options are coming into the restaurant.
We waited several months to test out CPK's 2nd attempt at a gluten free menu, to make sure others had a positive experience. Happy to say, after trying today, we were very impressed! They were confident and consistent in their responses to all of my questions...from the hosts, to the waitstaff to the servers...so it was clear to me that they have done a nice job of training. My celiac son had the pepperoni pizza and loved it! (See pic) Other than the 4 GF pizzas, there are a few salads that are GF, clearly marked with a green "O" on the menu. We felt very comfortable here, and so far my son feels no ill effects.
I ordered a gluten free pizza. I've had better gluten free pizzas. The crust was not very good compared to the others I've tried. Also I have my doubts about cross contamination, because the day after was a terrible day for my digestive system (to put it delicately).
The gluten free pizza was terrible. The crust was burnt and it isn't a thin pizza which if it is gluten free, needs to be rolled out thin. It tasted like dry, very dry rice. The server had no idea what gluten free was. If you want gf pizza, head over to the Pie. It is so much better!
The gf bbq chicken pizza was great, and I didn't get sick. Only rated four stars because the waiter was subpar
I only have gf salads here, not the pizza. I think they don't have a separate oven for it and it gets cross contaminated. I also don't have anything that might have gluten in the salad, like candied walnuts, because sometimes they're gf and sometimes not.
They've re-done their menu (again) and are very careful about labeling which pizzas are gluten free (they have a gluten free crust, but also designated ingredients for toppings). Since the switch, I have had a great dining experience. Options are limited, but I'd rather that than get sick!
Has a very safe option with their pizza as they make them separately. Their salads are nice but have a risk of cross contamination
The new menu has certified gluten free pizza.
Pizzas are certified gf. Salads are not.
A few years ago I got sick at CPK and hadn't been back since. I heard that they had done a lot of gf training and changes so decided to try them again. I was pleasantly surprised. They now have a separate kitchen space and are very careful with cross-contamination. I've eaten there several times now with no ill side effects. I would highly recommend trying out their gf pizza!
They really went through great pains to amend their GF pizza. Much appreciated, my daughter likes it and has never gotten sick
what a load of crap lots of options. LOL There are literally 4 pizzas to choose from that are "certified" gf. But let's face it, if they are making other pizza, handling flour in the same place, nothing can be "certified" GF. That being said, you can choose from a salad or pizza made with non gluten ingredients. My question is why you do people lie on the reviews? Are you somehow invested in the restaurant? Or have you been living in a world where having 4 options is a large selection/lots of options? puhhhhhleeeze All of that noted, the pizza is tasty. The crust is very good. The Pepperoni tasty. The sausage spicy. My boyfriend said his BBQ chicken pizza is very good. A little stingy on the mozzarella, but, not a bad pizza for a decent price (a gf pizza). Will I come back? Probably not. But I am leaving satisfied.
Very knowledgable. Salads yummy blizzard were excellent! No one yet sick. Three of us have celiac in my family. Definitely going back. Wish we tried sooner
cpk has 3 pizzas that are certified gluten free as they are prepped in a separate area. Any other pizza can be put on a gf crust but with no certification. I thought the pizza was great and the staff was very knowledgeable and able to answer my questions
There are four pizzas about ten inches in size to choose from. The manager was very accommodating when I said that I needed to have spinach instead of basil. He explained the risk and even offered to get me fresh spinach. I wish they had appetizers that were gluten free. Around seventeen dollars for this pizza. I had the margarita pizza.
when i worked in the Bridgewater mall i ordered pizza from here at least once a week... never had an issue and the pizza was amazing (i forget what real pizza tastes like so to me it tasted authentic) Granted it does matter HOW ur pizza is prepared. such as. make sure u ask for thin crust and extra crispy. or else is will taste like ur standard soggy gf pizza
