    I specifically requested a Gluten Free pizza, saying it was an allergy and not a preference due to my Celiac's. I know at one time they carried a GF crust that was not cauliflower so when my food arrived, I assumed it was that. I questioned the waitress just to be sure, because my intuition was that something was off. She assured me everything was fine. I had almost eaten the whole thing when I was told that it was not gluten free. The manager pretended to act shocked, had me fill out an incident report, but also told me I should have asked for the GF menu in the first place. I got sick in the bathroom before I left the restaurant and I am still feeling sick. They didn't take responsibility for the negligence and I wouldn't wish this upon anyone.

    After trusting this location, it's now on our family's growing no-go list. I ordered the GF pizza the night before my son was to leave for a band trip to Disney. After dinner, he went to the final rehearsal. He vomited at the rehearsal, jeopardizing his participation in the trip. The band nurse told me he could still attend if he doesn't vomit again and if he doesn't have a fever. I was really worried until I came home and my celiac daughter was shaking and trying to throw up, saying she never wants to eat pizza again. Sadly, it was a relief to confirm that they were 'just' glutened and my son wouldn't miss the trip we already paid for. This situation caused so much stress for our family.

    Select gf pizzas and salads. For the pizzas, they have everything gf labeled in blue--gloves, separate ingredients. They have a separate cooking space. $2 extra. Bbq chicken pizza was great!

    Last time I went in, their delivery was late so they didn't have any gluten free pizza dough. That's basically it besides salads that are gluten free. The manager was very accommodating, and made rice noodles in place of the normal pasta. I definitely recommend! I'm not celiac, so I don't know about any cross contamination issues or not.

    Wish they had more variety but it’s amazing that they have certified gf pizzas made in a dedicated area. Pricey for a little pizza but worth it to know my kids can eat safely. As always, talk to the manager and request a gf menu. Let them know it’s a necessity and not a preference.

    This location (possibly all?) doesn’t have a GF crust except cauliflower crust. Super nice staff but GF menu is less than stellar. No real pizza crust options.

    We came here our first night in Waikiki. We had the BBQ pizza on GF cauliflower crust and the Italian sausage option. Our server handed us a menu that had the GF options on it. The server seemed super rushed and not interested in our allergies, so we were nervous she wouldn't talk to kitchen and take precautions about cross contamination, but the food was good and no reactions. We wouldn't eat here by choice, just because it wasn't very special or exciting, but the flavor was good and we didn't get sick - just not anything really worth craving again.

    We had the privilege to order a gluten free cauliflower crust pizza with the General Manager, Brett Reed. Our daughter has several allergies and Mr. Reed personally went back to talk with the cooks in regards to her allergies. He was so incredible and we really felt at ease ordering with him as he was very much aware of allergy safety. We will be returning here.

    We came here expecting very good gluten free pizza based on what we had heard from others. However, the GF pizza was just on their cauliflower crust, which although fine, was quite flat and a little oily. Also, the cauliflower crust contains both eggs and milk, so if that is a problem for you, there is nothing you can have here except for salads. They were cautious and careful about our gluten free order. In general if you have other allergies, this is not the best place, both because of the ingredients of the crust and because when we asked to change up some toppings our server got a little touchy and reminded us forcefully that CPK does not have a design-your-own pizza option.

    The gluten free menu was kind of lacking, only having pizza options and like a grilled chicken option plus salads, but I just got a plain pie. Was nice because a manager has to oversee and cook the entire gluten free meal and she came out with the pizza letting me know that. My only problem was that it was overpriced ($16 for a small cheese pizza) but I guess that’s expected in the middle of Los Angeles.

    We usually have luck at cpk, but at this location, the kitchen did not follow gf procedures. The waiter did not seem apologetic, but the manager came out and apologized and comped our meal. She said she didnt know what went wrong in the preparation. Luckily, our daughter did not get sick, but we were pretty frustrated that their kitchen staff did not know proper procedures. I would stay away. Ft Lauderdale has other options for GF.

    Not too many options as far as pizza types go. We got the BBQ Chicken GF option. The crust is super thin and was a bit too burned on the end. We had requested added bacon and it wasn’t on there. Overall good flavor and a nice portion size. We split one, and three slices each was sufficient and filling.

    My wife has celiac disease, and we have eaten at this California Pizza kitchen twice now. The gluten free menu wasn’t very big I think it had four or five pizza’s on it. We was very impressed about how seriously they take the gluten free order. The manager brought my wife’s food to the table and explained exactly how it was prepared in the kitchen. This CPK in Tempe marketplace is a great place for those who has celiac disease.

    At first our server did not seem to understand the importance of our needing my daughter’s meal to be completely gluten-free (because she’s a Celiac), so we asked to speak to the manager, just to be sure her meal would be handled properly. The manager, a very young woman came out and assured us it would. She not only took care of her meal personally, she brought it out to my daughter herself AND came to check up on her and our table later. We are new to this whole gluten-free & Celiac “thing,” as my daughter has just been diagnosed, but I would recommend CPK and go back to eat at this location.

    This was the only location I’ve ever eaten at, so my experiences are specific to that location and staff. If you’re strictly gluten free or celiac then you’ll probably be fine. However, if you have a number of other allergies then you might not be so lucky. Not all of my allergies were in their allergy menu (I have a corn allergy) and the waiter was super nice but management had no idea how to handle this. I handed them a card I have with a list of my allergies and they kept handing it back and insisting I use an iPad to type in my allergies. I explained multiple times that I needed to talk to someone instead of using the iPad but they kept pushing me to use it and eventually I did. Not surprisingly, it didn’t include all of my allergens and it said I couldn’t eat anything. We flagged down the manager again and showed him and gave him my card and he finally talked to me. The meal I had was good and I didn’t get sick or anything, but my experiences trying to talk with them and not being listened to was very frustrating. There were things on the menu I could eat and the actual conversation resolved this, but that definitely took up a lot of our time in the restaurant and I’m not sure I’d go back to that location.

    The pizza is certified gf. At this location they use cauliflower crust and it’s delicious. The regular pizza crust is cooked off location and brought in and then only rice flour is used in the restaurant so that no regular flour is flying around. That way no cross contamination can occur. The ingredients are gf. I had a bbq chicken pizza and it was so good. I didn’t get sick and the staff went out of their way to make sure of it.

    We dined here last night. My daughter is a sensitive coeliac and I always worry when we eat out. For all coeliac's this place is very thorough and extremely attentive to your needs. Our server Isaac was beyond helpful and when my daughter's pizza came out not Isaac was accompanied by the manager whom explained how the pizza was made but the ingredients and the clean area surrounding the process. I'm not easily impressed, I'm brutal with GF contamination however I was supremely impressed. That is a high recommendation from me.

    This is specially for the 91-5431 Kapolei Parkway, Suite 500 Kapolei, HI 96707 CPK location: I spoke somewhat extensively with the server about the fact that I had celiac and that cross contamination seriously affects me. He assured me I was safe and that he would be sure to let the kitchen staff know and they would take all necessary precautions. I trusted him. I ordered lettuce wraps, which I’ve had at other locations and was totally fine. I also ordered the bbq chicken pizza. This was the problem. I only had one piece and took the rest to go. That night it hit me. I was on a girls weekend trip so I told myself that it could have been attributed to something else. BUT I had some left over pizza the next afternoon and within 20 minuets I knew the pizza was the culprit. It made my life pretty miserable for several days. I’ll never trust CPK again, which really bums me out because I loved their food. Just not worth it anymore.
