    The gluten-free options are clearly indicated on the menu (not a lot), but there are prepared in the same kitchen as the regular meals (so was I told by our waitress). There is also an independent menu for strictly gluten-free pizzas (4 sorts). Our waitress was quite aware of the situation and gave good advice. I had a pizza which was quite tasty (so far one of the best pizza dough I've tried).

    While they technically have a GF menu,, the staff is not understanding of what thateans. Our pizza was a wheat crust pizza and we had to send it back twice.

    Short list, I think 4 pizzas, that are assured GF, which was very re-assuring. The waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly, fulfilling all of our requests for GF info on ingredients and processes. Our table had both GF and Non-GF eaters and special care was given to the GF food. I ate well, enjoyed the outside balcony table and had no ill effects. Will definitely eat there again.

    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!

    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 pizza is the best pizza I've had in my life. The base was nice and crispy and not floury. It was also made using GIG standards and had very minimal risk of cross contamination. Great place, wish I could take it back to Australia.

    Safe gluten free option for those with Celiac in Waikiki! While there are plenty of no gluten added options on the menu, there are only four pizzas on the menu that should be considered safe for Celiac. Hey, I'll take it. Pizza while going out to eat is amazing! My pizza crust was a bit underdone, but delicious.

    Hit and miss crust. Sometimes it's over cooked and too crisp. Sometimes the crust is too chewey. Sometimes it's just right. They can't make substitutions on the GF pizza without risking cross contamination. I suspect the pizzas are made elsewhere and frozen.

    In terms of GF pizza, CPK is great. They have the GF pizza prepared separately, and the staff seem very knowledgeable about the whole “gluten free” and “celiac” thing. If you’re going there looking for something other than pizza, that’s when you’ll be disappointed. They don’t have many other options if you are strictly gluten free. If “gluten free” is only a preference, then they can adjust several of the items on the main menu to accommodate that, but it won’t be prepared separately. The GF pizza seems to be the only main dish that’s 100% gluten free, but it’s definitely worth it! -Their pizza was my brother’s favorite out of all the other GF pizzas we’ve tried- and that’s saying something. (Their strawberry cooler, by the way, is absolutely delicious, too.)

    They are very aware of the difference between a wheat allergy and Celiac's. Any pizza can be made on a gluten free crust, but they have a septate (smaller) list of pizzas that are prepared using certified procedures/ingredients that are safe for Celiac's! I've eaten here several times and have never gotten sick!

    Excellent GF pizza. I've had the BBQ and sausage, mushroom and pepperoni pizzas and have never had a problem. The sauce is good, not too much. The crust is has good taste, texture and is chewy. In speaking with the manager of this store I learned that California Pizza has a dedicated area for doing these GF pizzas. I haven't tried any of their other GF items. NOTE: I'm adding a PS to this review. Their GF pizza crust seems to have changed at some point toward the end of August 2017. I found that instead of it being the tasty crust I had previously enjoyed, the texture changed to where it tasted like many other not-so-great pizza crust taste...bland and a bit pasty. I noticed this twice on visits at the end of August and mid-September. This was quite disappointing, causing me to rethink my original rating of 5 stars and give it only 3.

Not only was this place very careful about food handling, but it was fresh and absolutely delicious!

    June 2017 -- Just wanted to update since my last review was in 2013. I have been eating here for the last four years and have never had an issue except they sometimes forget to put the bacon on my BBQ Chicken GF pizza LOL. They truly take it very seriously. Enjoy! -- 2013 -- They definitely take the gluten free procedures seriously. The gluten free crust arrives prepackaged, and the pizzas are cooked in a separate oven. The utensils for preparing gluten free meals have blue handles and the rest have black to avoid CC. I have eaten there twice now and no reaction. Thumbs up!
