I’ve eaten here in the past. Each time I get the certified gluten free bbq pizza. The first two times, the manager brought the pizza out and was very helpful. However this last time I asked for a gluten free pizza and was just given my pizza by a random server and there was no stick stating that it was gluten free. I decided to ask another sever if they could check for me. In fact it was not certified gluten free. Finally the pizza was brought out by the kitchen manager. They may have just been having an off day. But always double check!

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.

One of my favorites for GFree pizza! Delicious! I have never had reactions from the pizza. I rarely get other items like salads or apps that are denoted GFree as I had mild reactions in the past.

The first incarnation of California Pizza Kitchen's gluten-free pizza tasted awful and made me horribly sick. This time around, they've done everything right, and the pizzas are not only made properly, but they are downright tasty. The BBQ chicken pizza is definitely one of my favorites!

California Pizza Kitchen had a Gluten free pizza a couple of years ago and didn't do it right. They pulled the pizza and went to GiG to do it right the second time. I feel like they really care and worked hard to be safe. The staff was knowledgeable and very careful with my sons food. The pizza is cooked in a rimmed pan so it doesn't touch any other pizza. They also only use rice flour to roll out all their pizzas so no risk of wheat flour in the air. They also use color coded utensils so no chance of using a gluten contaminated pizza cutter. And the pizza tasted wonderful! My son wants to go every day!

My family and I went here for my sisters birthday. I am happy to report that they have labels on their menu for gluten free options (did not receive a separate menu from the main one my whole family had copies of). My server was great with coordinating with the kitchen to let them know that I was celiac and they prepared my food in a space for gluten free items. I will also add that the options for gluten free were a bit limited compared to everyone else at my table (only a lettuce wedge for a GF app). By the end of the meal, when my sister wanted butter cake for dessert, I honestly didn’t think to ask if they had any GF options after being disheartened over the apps options.

Ate here twice. Chose certified gluten free pizza Margherita. Little overcooked but safely prepared. Good service. Need to chose both a gluten free crust and a pizza variety that is certified gluten free for it to be safe. There was also a gluten free salmon dish which someone else in our party tried and they thought it was good. Very sensitive to gluten and did not get sick after being here. Gluten free pizza marked with a stick/sign on it, so avoiding mix up.

We ordered a GF pepperoni pizza and asked the server to ask the kitchen to take precautions to reduce cross contact. She said she would.

A server brought out the GF pizza before the rest of the food, and he was wearing gloves.

The pizza tasted good.
