They have a separate station for gluten free pizza to avoid cross contamination. Only a few options for gluten free pizzas but they were great. Ate here twice and didn't get sick.
This place was great. They gave us a lot of reassurance about their procedures. The GF menu had 4 pizzas that are prepared safely for celiac. We ate here 3 times with no problems. Pizza was really good too.
Staff were very knowledgeable and mentioned that they are strict about Ava posing cross contamination by preparing the gf in a seperate part of their kitchen. It was great!
If you are in the mood for a pizza while in Hawaii, try them out for a quick bite. Our server was very knowledgeable and had a separate gluten free menu. I always love their original barbecue chicken pizza. You can get it in a g-free crust or (as the server suggested) the g-free cauliflower crust. It was delicious and I felt great!
Small dedicated GF/Celiac menu (4 pizzas), BUT with peace of mind as they are the four that adhere to the strict protocol to avoid cross contamination. (They can make their other pizzas on a GF crust or their new cauliflower crust, but cannot guarantee no CC). I had the BBQ Chicken Pizza with Avocado and Pineapple along with a GF Apple Cider - and it was so good! Server was friendly and knowledgeable, reasonable pricing too.
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
Their GF pizzas are guaranteed gluten free, but you can also order many other GF items that the ingredients themselves are GF, however they cannot guarantee no cross contamination on the GF non-pizza items.
Eaten here probably close to one hundred times with 2 diagnosed family members with Celiac. Never had a problem - not one!! You need to ask for their GF menu and order from it. California Pizza Kitchen was trained by GIG and rolled out their GF menu October 2013. They have 4 pizzas - all excellent. The cauliflower crust is incredible! If you order cauliflower crust - needs to be one of the pizzas from the GF menu. The GF crust tastes more delicious to me than their regular crust. My celiac family members have dined here many many times successfully. CPK understood what needed to be done and the food was delicious!!! Well done!
Visited CPK at the Stoneridge Mall. My GF pizza was delivered and looked exactly like other family members pizza that non GF. I questioned the delivery person who reassured me it was GF. I left and within a short time was ill with intense stomach pains.
They have the GIG certification and take lots of precautions. Eat here often and have never gotten sick. Their traditional GF crust is OK but their new cauliflower crust is delicious! Gets nice and crispy and you can get their signature BBQ chicken pizza on the Gluten Free Menu.
My server wasn’t too knowledgeable about gluten free things aside from the certified gluten free pizzas. BBQ, margherita, pepperoni and cheese. I had the bbq. It was really good. They have a cauliflower crust too that’s supposedly gluten free. I didn’t try it this time. I didn’t get sick and my pizza was pretty tasty. I couldn’t find an allergen info sheet on their salad dressings and nobody seemed to know but I had the ranch and I was fine.
NOT SAFE!!!!!!!!!! I honesty wish I could give them zero stars. I had three managers, a host, and a chef promise me it was safe. Next thing I knew, I was in bed for a week. I had never been “glutened” that badly. After telling management what happened, the guy said nobody should have promised me non-cross contaminated pizza (he was one of those that said they could easily accommodate celiac and make a 100% gf pizza). They’re dishonest and an easy way for a celiac to get sick.
They have a few GF pizzas but not too much else. I got the BBQ chicken on the GF cauliflower crust. It was amazing! Our waiter was very knowledgeable as to what I could and couldn’t have. He also let us know how they prepare GF in the kitchen. There’s only a select few pizzas GF because they only keep a few ingredients in a separate spot just for GF. They also use a different stove. Didn’t get sick at all!
They have a certified GF menu, which is awesome, but it only has 4 pizzas on it. There are more items listed as GF on the main menu, but cross-contamination is listed as highly likely. For anyone not terribly sensitive, the salads, chicken, etc., are probably fine, but I definitely wasn’t going to risk it. My daughter had the certified GF pepperoni pizza on the regular GF crust, and that was pretty good. I had the certified GF BBQ chicken pizza with pineapple on the new cauliflower crust, and I really liked it! Very thin but quite tasty.
We have eaten at CPK many times throughout the US and have always eaten safely. Recently, we were unsure about the GF crust because it looked different from the crust we have had before. This GF crust had rings on the bottom. The manager assured us that it was GF and took the extra step of going to the kitchen to get another GF crust to show us the rings. We appreciated the extra effort from the manager to assure that my daughter’s pizza was safe for her to eat.
This is the only place I can go for safe GF pizza. They have a certified GF pizza menu which is amazing! They only have 4 options to choose from, but knowing they are 100% safe is good enough for me. I eat at many CPK's and they are all equally amazing. I always order the BBQ chicken pizza with added pineapple and mushrooms with no cheese (I also have a dairy allergy) and it is yummy every time! I highly recommend it to anyone with celiac or gluten intolerance!
They have 5 pizzas that are Certified Gluten free by the GiG and are made in a seperate space for those like my daughter who have celiac. They also have gf cauliflower crust and other varieties of pizza that are gluten free for those like me who are just intolerant. I cannot eat red sauce either, so I had the waiter help me choose something and I had the Garlic Chicken pizza on the cauliflower crust with pesto sauce. It was fantastic. My celiac daughter had the Certified gf pepperoni, and it was really good, although a bit spicy for her. My son had a "normal" pizza and said it was the best pizza he had ever had. Glad we found something to please all of us.
They offer standard gluten-free crust and also gluten-free cauliflower crust. The menu doesn't have a whole lot of gluten free options other than pizza, but both crusts are good. They offer four pizzas prepared in a special section of the kitchen that's completely gluten free (something about a GIG standard?), but if cross contamination isn't an issue, all pizzas are gluten-free friendly.
This CPK sucks. No gluten free options
Very tasty GF crust. We need to eat dairy-free as well; they don't have dairy-free cheese, but were happy to take what we brought and use it for the pizza. Limited choices for toppings; this isn't the kind of pizzeria where you just select toppings from a list of 20. Instead they have specific selections and combinations available, and only a small number of those are certified GF, though others are probably OK for those who aren't overly sensitive.
Staff seemed to be very well trained and knowledgeable, and they didn't mind all of my questions! They offered 2 crust options, regular gluten-free and a cauliflower crust. I opted for the cauliflower and it was great! The menu has other options that are marked as gluten-free, and our waitress said that they can prepare almost everything else in the menu as gluten-free if requested (obviously substitutions would be made accordingly). In short, I plan to add CPK to my list of trusted restaurants and recommend giving it a try.
I debated whether or not to leave a review because I didn’t actually chance eating here. I was seated and they did have a “certified GF” pizza menu —although it’s only 3 options of pizza. They also have a cauliflower crust option too. The place was pretty dead as it was a little after 4pm. After more than 15 min the waitress came over and said, “have you been helped yet?” This was very absurd given she was clearly the ONLY waitress. There was one other table besides me dining there. I order the GF pizza. I tell her I have an extreme mushroom allergy. She says she’ll write it down. So things are looking up. Then, she says “would you like bread with your pizza”. Me: “um, I want the gluten free pizza” her: “yeah, but do you want the bread still? It comes with the pizza”. ....Me: umm is it gluten free? Her: no, it just comes with pizza. Me: no, I’m not ordering GF for the fun of it, so I don’t want bread. She walked off to go put the order in. At that point I was too scared of getting mushroomed or glutened so I asked her to cancel the order and I just left. After the first 1/2 hour I wasn’t willing to risk it. If the waitress is that clueless I can’t chance what is communicated to the kitchen.
