Been here many times. Have gotten their gluten free pizza I think it tastes really good. Most likely it has been cross contaminated at this location. However I have not had a reaction.

I tried the gluten-free pizza, and their crust was the worst gluten-free crust I've ever eaten! It had the consistency of a soggy cracker. I ended up just eating the toppings off of the top. I was very disappointed because I enjoyed California Pizza Kitchen before I was diagnosed with Celiacs.

While their options for celiacs are limited, they are good. Their server was able to explain how they prepped the food separately and asked to understand more about the disease, as she said an increasing number of people needing GF options are coming into the restaurant.

We have eaten here multiple times, and always had a great meal and no issues. The caramelized peach salad is one of our favorites, must try!

They have certified GF pizza (it comes marked) when you order a special crust. Also salads, salmon, etc. I had Margherita pizza and it was delicious!

We ate here because our flight got in late and we were too tired and hungry to search further. My husband and I split a pizza and each had a wedge salad. I realize it’s a chain but man, no thought or love went into the food. On the bright side, the place was dirty and smelled like an old dishrag.

Awesome experience multiple times. They have a separate counter for preparing GF pizza and the certified GF ingredients are kept separate. Never had a reaction. They follow ultimate safety practices.
