I get sick if I get any cross contaminated food and had a delicious pizza here and did not get sick. Server was very knowledgeable and made sure my food was safe. Highly recommend this place.
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).
Only a few options, but Yummy and kept completely seperate.
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!
Had Italian chop salad and all 4 of there certified GF pizzas. Excellent meal with the family. Great job CPK.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing BBQ chicken pizza. Liked it so much for lunch. Went back for supper
Four pizzas that are certified and gluten free crust for any other pizza.
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.
The BBQ Chicken pizza is amazing. Any of their pizzas can be made gf, but 4 of them are certified gf. Little pricey for the size of the pizza.
Nice atmosphere, friendly service. Certified gluten free pizza, four kinds, made in a seperate area of the kitchen. There are other gluten free options on the menu but not guaranteed free of cross contamination. Great pizza!
Knowledge staff and dedicated menu
Great staff- very knowledgable about coeliac disease and cross contamination. 4 pizzas that are prepared separately so totally safe. BBQ chicken pizza was great. The waitress also brought me a surprise gf dessert- ice cream/cream and choc fudge sauce! Definitely a safe place to go!
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.
Great option. Love that their certified- just stick to the pizzas and toppings listed. This location knew what gf was and conveniently located near all the Waikiki hotels & shops. <3 BBQ chicken with pineapple!
Great service, good pizza :)
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.
Fantastic gluten free pizza. Made exactly how I wanted it. Mary the server was the best. Going back again!
Liars no gf
I have celiac disease and became sick after eating here. I was uncomfortable when the waiter had food particles all over him. I explained that I was ordering off the gluten free menu due to celiac disease and a severe wheat allergy. I also asked if the policies that I am aware of from other locations were followed here such as change to blue gloves, separate storage, prep area, and pizza delivered by manager. He assured me all policies would be followed. The pizza was brought out by the hostess and it h a toothpick marked gluten free. I didn’t eat anything else that day, brought my own bottled drink, and didn’t use their silverware. The GF margherita pizza was delicious, but not worth the severe sickness.
They have very strict safety procedures for preparing their gf pizza and they have partnered with the gluten intolerance group to develop these. Check out info available online. There are three gf pizza choices and a few other menu options. My child with celiac did not get sick and pizza is yummy.
I ordered the gf mushroom, pepperoni and sausage pizza to go. The pizza crust was burned and wasn't very good. The crust had a sweetness to it which was strange paired with the mushrooms, pepperoni and sausage. If I ever go back I'll ask that the crust be undercooked.
They have 4 pizzas that are gluten free and safe for people with celiac. Next month they’ll have the option of regular gf crust or cauliflower crust. I ordered the bbq chicken, and it was quite good. Less than five minutes after ordering off the GF menu and telling the waitress it’s an intolerance and not a preference, she brought bread to the table and placed right in front of me.
chef came over personally to deliver the bbq chicken pizza and manager came afterwards to even check on it- beyond thrilled! ask for the crust well done
Great experience. Knowledgeable about gluten "allergy" and necessary procedures to decrease risk of cross contact. For example, toppings for gf pizzas stored separately and blue gloves are worn when assembling gf pizzas. Our server was exceptionally kind and careful. The margherita pizza was delicious! We experienced no symptoms and ordered a second pepperoni pizza for take out. Our server even opened new carton of take out boxes. My sons said the pepperoni pizza was great, too!
We've eaten at other restaurants from this chain and the wait staff has always been really good. Tonight we asked out waitress about the certified gluten free pizza and she was very snooty telling us that we only had 4 to choose from and nothing else- which was fine. Then she brought bread and oil and a salad full of croutons 😣 Luckily, the pizza was prepared with the care it required. So service was disappointing but pizza was great. Just gotta be on your toes.
Went there a few times when in town before being diagnosed with Celiac, but afterwards has become the go to restaurant to go to. Their GF pizza is absolutely delicious! It is the best GF pizza I've had & would rank it as a top tier overall pizza. They regularly mark the pizza with an allergy warning toothpick & bring out separate from other orders at table while wearing gloves. Only drawback is the options for other GF items is limited.
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.
As others have said, gluten free menu is very limited with other 4 pizzas. There are a few gluten free options on the main menu also. Had the pepperoni sausage pizza which was excellent. Lovely location also with outdoor seating. Would recommend a visit.
Our 11 year old has a very severe case of celiacs. We are traveling to the West Coast from New Jersey and rely on the Find Me GF reviews to find places where she can eat. Not only was this place very careful about food handling, but it was fresh and absolutely delicious! We were also super excited to hear that they have locations in New Jersey as well... we will be going to those as well! Celiacs? Eat here!
