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
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!
some of the reviews make it look like gluten is just this stupid thing that CPK doesn't add to the dough... OF COURSE GF PIZZA DOESN'T TASTE OR HAS THE SAME TEXTURE as real, wheat flour pizzas. Duh! Been here 3 times, Bbq Chicken GF is awesome and it's safe. Again: It's a very good gf pizza.
Ordered from Gluten menu. Server very helpful and understanding when I asked from crushed peppers just to be safe to make sure that the ones on the table weren't cross contaminated. Manager brought my food to the table. Felt good afterwards. Will try it again.
The pizza was pretty good for gluten free. All considering. I'm not going to say was the best ever but good.
Great lunch, limited GF choice with 4 pizzas but my daughter said her pizza was 10/10 on taste. The service was impeccable the assistant manager was so welcoming. They brought a separate plate of chips and dip for my daughter unprompted. Very aware and will definitely return to this one or another in the chain.
gf pizza crust and VERY aware of Celiac. Chef even called to ask if my online GF order was for Celiac because the Thai pizza on a gfcrust I ordered was just gluten friendly and could not guarantee no cross contamination. I changed it to another true gf pizza!!
Manager is Celiac if that tells you how much emphasis is on safety. That said - my server said cross-contamination is always a possibility no matter how hard they try to avoid. Note that you can order ANY pizza such as The Works on a GFree crust. Food always great here. Cider and GFree beer plus spirits and wine. Very good GFree pizza.
staff is very knowledgeable about gf. it is always delicious. I always get the bbq chicken pizza and it never disappoints. I also love their frozen pizza that you can buy in stores. obeof my favorite sit down pizza joints. I have never gotten sick here and it is always delicious!!!
We had a wonderful experience here. My daughter and I shared a GF pizza. It wasn't a super busy time of day. Staff was super attentive.
My husband loves this place. He says it's the best GF pizza around. And- they take the gluten issue VERY seriously. We've eaten here probably 100 times now (seriously) and my husband has never gotten sick.
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!
