Yummy, yummy, yummy! The GM brought out my pizza with gloves on and informed me that all of the procedures were followed. I got the barbecue chicken and was plenty for me and my brother to share. I also got a wedge salad that said it had gluten free ingredients but couldn't be 100% guaranteed however I didn't get sick. Very pleased with the experience and will be returning
Have eaten GF pizza at the Tampa location 3 times and did not get sick. The pizza was so good! It's so nice to go out for pizza! And have knowledgeable servers - yay California Pizza Kitchen!!
Extremely knowledgable staff and great food. The only thing that could be improved is that it would be great if there were more vegetarian options than the Margherita pizza, as items can be removed from the pizzas but not added, in order to adhere to the gluten free guidelines. It's great to be able to eat out without worries.
Best pizza I've had since being diagnosed. Very knowledgable.
Delicious g/f pizza. 4 pizza choices are certified g/f. Also had a g/f chargrilled peach salad. I would definitely return.
The review below me needs to be revised because the California Pizza Kitchen has made a complete 360!!! They have about 5 CERTIFIED gluten free pizzas. I had the margarita and it was the best pizza I ever had!! It was crispy and chewy and AMAZING. Go try it for yourself! Our waiter was friendly and so knowledgable. Also the regular menu had a gf next to any gluten free items. I had a salad as well. Many options. Best dining experience I've had in a long long time!
not knowledgeable staff and only had a few selections. they were out of pizza crust but that didn't matter for us celiacs because they cook everything together. i would not recommend
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!
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.
