    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.

    cpk has 3 pizzas that are certified gluten free as they are prepped in a separate area. Any other pizza can be put on a gf crust but with no certification. I thought the pizza was great and the staff was very knowledgeable and able to answer my questions

    Pizza is only dedicated GF option. This was my first time at CPK. Had margherita pizza. Was not good. Big blobs of tomato in some places and "bald" in others. Dough around outside was ok but center was too thick and tasted terrible. Get better GF pizza from local place near home. Disappointed!

    The older reviews are now out of date. GF pizza is not only offered but has it's own prep area with all separate ingredients and is delicious.

    Please be advised that the dressings used on the salads marked gluten free, are in fact NOT GLUTEN FREE SALAD DRESSINGS! They do have olive oil and balsamic vinegar they can bring IF you remember to ask for the dressing on the side.

    Barely any gluten free options, only salads. No gluten free pizza, very confusing. But they sing happy birthday. No gluten free desserts either. No nacho or taco options are gluten free either.

    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.

    Love CPK. I think they have some of the best GF pizza around and they take special care to keep from cc. They also have a new cauliflower crust that is GF and yummy too. I wish they would also do GF pasta.

    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.

    Wait staff were knowledgeable of gluten free and cross contamination. Gluten free food was cooked in a separate part of the kitchen. My 9 year old was able to have a kids gluten free cheese pizza. I had the Margherita pizza and iced tea. All was yummy and had no issues later.

    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.

    Order a traditional cheese pizza on their gluten-free cauliflower crust. Pizza came out and looked delicious. I tried to cut a small bite off of a slice and it was very hard. I ate one bit and it was so dry and rough that it scraped my throat all the way down. Manager took the price off our bill and gave me a gift card for a return visit. Not sure if I’ll give it another try. So disappointed!

    There were a few items that were dedicated gluten free. The pizza crust is fine, but nothing special. The kids menus only has the chicken as “safe” but there is an option for getting a small pizza off of the gluten free menu. Nice place but gets loud during peak times. Busy since a part of Bridgeport village.

    They’ve discontinued the Rice Flour pizza crust. Now only serving the Cauliflower crust, this crust is GF, but it contains Parmesan Cheese; I can’t have Cheese so that puts me out. Those Lactose intolerant as I am beware!!! I’m rating it “unsafe” for this reason. I know some of us Celiacs are also Lactose intolerant.. :(

    The level of safety against XC is great. The pizza was just ok. The gf crust was a little undercooked. I'll probably try the cauliflower crust next time. Other than that, I had no reaction. It's also in a great location. My girlfriend and I walked around the mall, ate at CPK, and then went to AMC across the street to watch a movie. The perfect date night (for a couple of college kids).

    One of the best GF Pizzas I've had just a bit more in price but worth it. On the other hand we did have a mix up on just about everything we ordered which I thought to be weird because we went over our requests w/the waiter to avoid any problems. Virtually every single thing we ordered was wrong right down to the dressing on our salads. We waited a long while for a waiter to come due to a big group of Prom goers next to us. Then the wait for the food was excruciatingly long so when we did finally get it we were a bit put off by the fact that everything had to be remade the way we originally ordered it in the first place. I was really happy to see the manager was so apologetic & even gave us vouchers for our return visit. It's surprising what we're able to forgive when someone is nice about it. It made all the difference in this review & our experience there. I will say that their bottomless lemonades are really good & the GF pizza crust tasted just like I remember non GF pizza crust tasting. I hope next time we go that there won't be another prom night to compete with. CPK has always been a favorite of mine so I do plan on returning. Thanks California Pizza Kitchen!
