    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.

    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!

    Great experience for a celiac diner. Dedicated area for gluten free pizzas and separate ingredients just used for GF pizzas. The staff were very friendly and clearly explained their procedures for preventing cross-contamination to me when I asked. The manager brought my meal out personally. Their GF pizza area and ingredients are certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group, which is also noted on their GF menu. Not a huge selection of GF pizzas or the best GF crust I've ever had but a safe/easy dining experience definitely makes up for that!

    I didn't find the pizza good at all, they had a really hard time accommodating me because they only have cheese GF pizza and I had to ask them to add some toppings and they told me they won't guarantee that there is not cross contamination, they also took for ever to cook it, my friend had finished eating when I got my pizza because they were having such a hard time making it, the pizza crust was chewy and grainy. Won't be back.

They told me if I did not like the one I chose, they would make me one of the other options for free.

    Absolutely love that they have a dedicated section of their kitchen for the gf pizza. It's nice not having to worrying about getting sick but it's a huge bummer to have to watch your dinning companions eat appetizers and dessert when you can't because they don't offer any gf versions. I don't understand with a certified gf kitchen how you don't have even 1 appetizer or dessert (sorry a kid's sundae does not count for me) for your gf patrons. Hope this changes in the future.

    I watched their staff make my pizza and when they prepared to bring it out to me They carried it unboxed passed the regular pizza crust says they were being tossed in the air. in fact boxing of all pizzas gluten-free or not happen in this area being exposed to flour in the air. While they don't claim to be a gluten-free facility this was particularly careless. I've been in there three times and gotten sick all three times they are not Celiac's friendly. I tried pointing this out to the manager but he didn't seem to care and just looked at me and said "that's how we do things". I would say skip California Pizza Kitchen and just go to Wasatch Pizza instead

    I was skeptical to eat here, but my kids wanted pizza so I thought I'd just check it out. I asked the host, who took a few minutes to even show up in the middle of lunch hour, if they had GF options. He said yes and gave me their GF menu. Only 4 different pizza options, but it sounded good, so we sat down. Server was super slow getting to us, but apologized for the delay. I asked if they used separate utensils for serving the pizza and she said yes, she even washes her hands before bringing it out. Sounds good, so I ordered the margarita pizza. 10-15 minutes later she came out and notified me that they didn't have any more GF crusts. I wouldn't have even sat down had I known that. Super disappointed and hungry. I will not be returning. They did give me a discount though.

    The gf pizza is grainy and bland. However, the worst part is that, even though they assured me they take very careful precautions, I have been violently ill for days. My body is rejecting everything since I ate there, even fresh fruit which usually calms my system down. Maybe it's okay for people who are slightly intolerant, but it is clearly not celiac safe. I will not be dining there again.
