Good pizza! They have 4 types of pizza that are prepared in a GIG certified method in a separate area that we were able to see from our table. They had a separate refrigerator and prep area, the cook wore gloves to prepare it, and placed the pizza on a special pan/tray to help protect it from cross-contamination when they insert and remove it from the oven. You can get other toppings on a GF crust, outside of the 4 GIG ones, but those toppings are taken from the regular prep area, so they are subject to cross-contamination. I only ordered fro the GIG certified list (I have celiac disease and I am very sensitive to cross-contamination). I had the BBQ chicken pizza and thought it was very good. Best of all, I did not get sick!
So good for Celiac's because their cooking procedures are certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group! Make sure you ask for the GF menu, because only the pizzas on this smaller menu will be prepared using these special procedures. Each time I eat here a manager brings out my pizza, making me feel extra safe! CPK is always a go-to :)
The pizza was really good, but expensive. There were 5 pizzas to choose from, and my bill for my pizza was $20. That’s way more than I would typically spend on a pizza (especially when the “normal” version of the same pizza is $13). It’s really frustrating when places up-charge GF so much, it’s not like we have much of a choice.
Love the gluten free pizzas here!! Always tastes great, but I had to take away one star because the crust is much thinner that I like (it's really thin even for gluten free, which is normally thin anyway) and the cost is ridiculous for such a small amount of of pizza. But the pizzas are awesome and cooked specially to prevent cross contamination.
I had the Bahn Mi bowl. It was delicious and the server told me before and after he brought the food that the cooks wore gloves and made sure everything was clean. I did not get sick. There are cauliflower pizza crusts but I cannot have dairy. There are several other gluten free options.
They have a small menu of certified gluten free pizza to choose from, it has a toothpick label gf place on top.
Our waiter was knowledgeable about celiac, gluten and their safe handling process. They change gloves, have dedicated kitchen space. Their pizzas are certified gluten free and they have several other non pizza menu items to choose from. Our entire family is gluten free and we had a great experience here.
So the service was slow and the waiter didn’t seem too with it, but since it had good reviews for GF dining, I still felt okay ordering the food for our daughter with celiac. Turns out, the food was safe and she had zero reaction. I think we ordered her a GF pizza. Since it seems to be a safe place to dine for people with celiac I give it 5 stars and we would go back again.
Ate here a few days ago with our 14 yo celiac daughter. We typically eat at CPK’s when we are traveling because we have always had great experiences. This location was no different than others we have visited. Our daughter had a pizza. My husband and I had a salad that was also gluten free and our son had the kids gluten free pizza. No reactions from the celiac. We would eat here again.
The options on the menu are limited (without modifications) but the food was good. I tried a pizza and it was very different (better) than the boxed version at the store. Staff was friendly and I did not get sick.
If you are gluten and dairy free be warned - while they have “certified gluten free” pizzas, there is cheese inside the cauliflower crust, so pizza is not an option. There are some other options that are gluten and dairy free, but they are not certified. The meal I had was okay, but I was disappointed by the lack of pizza offerings. Seems odd that they would offer certified gf pizzas that aren’t an option for many people who need to avoid gluten since dairy is frequently an issue for the same folks.
They do not have many options for gluten allergy. However I did have the sausage mushroom pizza and it was pretty good and more importantly I did not get sick. Just wish there were more choices.
Cauliflower crust pizza was absolutely delicious! Felt 100% safe eating here with their “certified” gluten free pizzas! Staff VERY knowledgeable!! Would return without a second thought!!
Fantastic place...staff is friendly, helpful, GF Pizza is certified GF and prepared safely, manager brings food out when ordered GF. They make it very clear that the food is in fact GF. Would eat here every night if I could!
Employees always ask if you are ordering GF for allergy/Celiac or preference. If allergy/Celiac, then they take ultra precaution to avoid cross contamination. All employees seem to be pretty seriously educated regarding food safety. I appreciate that! Also, their GF pizza is really good!
Staff was very nice and knowledgeable. The waitress even went and talked to the chef to see if a salad dressing I was interested in was celiac friendly. I didn’t like the gluten free pizza crust. I personally found it to be very grainy.
Staff is very friendly and helpful when you ask for gluten free crust. California Pizza Kitchen’s gluten free crust is gluten free certified. The crust is pretty great, and they have a wide range of toppings. There is a somewhat separate kitchen space for the gluten free pizzas, however I cannot say it’s 100% celiac safe.
I watched the guy make my pizza because i was waiting to pick up at the bar. He changed his gloves, took the pizza out of the oven with a separate paddle, went to a dedicated prep area. Box came sealed with tape labeled GF. I felt really confident about no cross-contamination. Also, the GF crust is make from cauliflower and it’s delicious.
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 ex 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).
Great pizza, great experience! I spoke with the manager on the phone before eating here, and she told me they have a separate area in the kitchen for preparing their CERTIFIED gluten free pizzas, and extensive procedures in place to prevent cross contamination (approved by the Gluten Intolerance Group, no less!), including changing gloves and using separate utensils. I asked for the manager when I got there, and she let our server know I have a gluten allergy. There are 5 different pizzas on the certified gf menu, and I felt pretty darn safe selecting from one of these. IMPORTANT: As far as I know the gf pizzas are ONLY gf if you order off the certified gf menu, and don't ask for any substitutions or additions. For example, if you ask for additional toppings, they would likely have to get them from the main part of the kitchen, so the pizza would no longer be considered gf. Also, keep in mind that everything marked gf on the regular menu only contains "no gluten ingredients," so ordering off the regular menu could be risky if you have celiac or gluten intolerance. Now for the fun part! The manager herself brought our pizzas out, and they had a little flag in them that said Gluten Free. I had the Margherita pizza. The cauliflower crust was thin and crispy with a pleasant chew, just like regular thin crust pizza. Came out piping hot with deliciously gooey cheese! It was honestly better than a lot of regular pizzas I've had before I was diagnosed, and I felt great afterwards!
I asked for the GF menu and was very reassured with the certified safe range. The staff were very knowledgeable and reassured me that my pizza had been made separately. I just had the GF margarita and it was delicious! Non CD husband also enjoyed his normal pizza.
Staff knowledgeable, separate gf menu. Food handled safe, new toppings and gf pizza cutter. It tasted great, I ordered the gf margherita pizza. Shared Waldorf salad, server noted to have it prepared in a clean bowl. Everyone loved their meals. Felt good!
