I have celiac disease and became sick after eating here. I was uncomfortable when the waiter had food particles all over him. I explained that I was ordering off the gluten free menu due to celiac disease and a severe wheat allergy. I also asked if the policies that I am aware of from other locations were followed here such as change to blue gloves, separate storage, prep area, and pizza delivered by manager. He assured me all policies would be followed. The pizza was brought out by the hostess and it h a toothpick marked gluten free. I didn’t eat anything else that day, brought my own bottled drink, and didn’t use their silverware. The GF margherita pizza was delicious, but not worth the severe sickness.
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
The pizza is amazing! There are 4 pizza options that are certified gluten free. We go often and I have never had any issue. The Margarita pizza is my favorite!
The GF BBQ chicken Pizza was great but crust could be crispier. The grilled vegetable salad was phenomenal, added the grilled chicken but be sure to specify Gluten allergy as the chicken is normally grilled on same grille as wheat tortillas. They will line grille with aluminum foil if requesting GF.
While the pizza they have is delicious and I've never had a bad reaction, they are frequently out of stock of their gluten free pizza crust.
I had a gluten free pizza and it was delicious and I had no bad reaction!
New improved gluten free menu and pizza was great!
They have gone through a huge training program regarding celiac disease & I was very impressed with their knowledge & service. Everyone was aware of cross contamination concerns from patrons. They now have pizza made in the morning before the regular pizza is prepped. They only use rice flour in all of their prep. The pizza is stored in containers & cooked in a separate oven. The manager delivered my BBQ Chicken pizza with a smile!!!
Very disappointed that the only GF offerings were salads. Also, on the back of the menu it states that they cannot be certain that their items are not cross contaminated with gluten products.
Their GF pizzas are guaranteed gluten free, but you can also order many other GF items that the ingredients themselves are GF, however they cannot guarantee no cross contamination on the GF non-pizza items.
Eaten here probably close to one hundred times with 2 diagnosed family members with Celiac. Never had a problem - not one!! You need to ask for their GF menu and order from it. California Pizza Kitchen was trained by GIG and rolled out their GF menu October 2013. They have 4 pizzas - all excellent. The cauliflower crust is incredible! If you order cauliflower crust - needs to be one of the pizzas from the GF menu. The GF crust tastes more delicious to me than their regular crust. My celiac family members have dined here many many times successfully. CPK understood what needed to be done and the food was delicious!!! Well done!
Visited CPK at the Stoneridge Mall. My GF pizza was delivered and looked exactly like other family members pizza that non GF. I questioned the delivery person who reassured me it was GF. I left and within a short time was ill with intense stomach pains.
They have the GIG certification and take lots of precautions. Eat here often and have never gotten sick. Their traditional GF crust is OK but their new cauliflower crust is delicious! Gets nice and crispy and you can get their signature BBQ chicken pizza on the Gluten Free Menu.
My server wasn’t too knowledgeable about gluten free things aside from the certified gluten free pizzas. BBQ, margherita, pepperoni and cheese. I had the bbq. It was really good. They have a cauliflower crust too that’s supposedly gluten free. I didn’t try it this time. I didn’t get sick and my pizza was pretty tasty. I couldn’t find an allergen info sheet on their salad dressings and nobody seemed to know but I had the ranch and I was fine.
NOT SAFE!!!!!!!!!! I honesty wish I could give them zero stars. I had three managers, a host, and a chef promise me it was safe. Next thing I knew, I was in bed for a week. I had never been “glutened” that badly. After telling management what happened, the guy said nobody should have promised me non-cross contaminated pizza (he was one of those that said they could easily accommodate celiac and make a 100% gf pizza). They’re dishonest and an easy way for a celiac to get sick.
They have a few GF pizzas but not too much else. I got the BBQ chicken on the GF cauliflower crust. It was amazing! Our waiter was very knowledgeable as to what I could and couldn’t have. He also let us know how they prepare GF in the kitchen. There’s only a select few pizzas GF because they only keep a few ingredients in a separate spot just for GF. They also use a different stove. Didn’t get sick at all!
They have a certified GF menu, which is awesome, but it only has 4 pizzas on it. There are more items listed as GF on the main menu, but cross-contamination is listed as highly likely. For anyone not terribly sensitive, the salads, chicken, etc., are probably fine, but I definitely wasn’t going to risk it. My daughter had the certified GF pepperoni pizza on the regular GF crust, and that was pretty good. I had the certified GF BBQ chicken pizza with pineapple on the new cauliflower crust, and I really liked it! Very thin but quite tasty.
We have eaten at CPK many times throughout the US and have always eaten safely. Recently, we were unsure about the GF crust because it looked different from the crust we have had before. This GF crust had rings on the bottom. The manager assured us that it was GF and took the extra step of going to the kitchen to get another GF crust to show us the rings. We appreciated the extra effort from the manager to assure that my daughter’s pizza was safe for her to eat.
This is the only place I can go for safe GF pizza. They have a certified GF pizza menu which is amazing! They only have 4 options to choose from, but knowing they are 100% safe is good enough for me. I eat at many CPK's and they are all equally amazing. I always order the BBQ chicken pizza with added pineapple and mushrooms with no cheese (I also have a dairy allergy) and it is yummy every time! I highly recommend it to anyone with celiac or gluten intolerance!
They have 5 pizzas that are Certified Gluten free by the GiG and are made in a seperate space for those like my daughter who have celiac. They also have gf cauliflower crust and other varieties of pizza that are gluten free for those like me who are just intolerant. I cannot eat red sauce either, so I had the waiter help me choose something and I had the Garlic Chicken pizza on the cauliflower crust with pesto sauce. It was fantastic. My celiac daughter had the Certified gf pepperoni, and it was really good, although a bit spicy for her. My son had a "normal" pizza and said it was the best pizza he had ever had. Glad we found something to please all of us.
They offer standard gluten-free crust and also gluten-free cauliflower crust. The menu doesn't have a whole lot of gluten free options other than pizza, but both crusts are good. They offer four pizzas prepared in a special section of the kitchen that's completely gluten free (something about a GIG standard?), but if cross contamination isn't an issue, all pizzas are gluten-free friendly.
This CPK sucks. No gluten free options
Very tasty GF crust. We need to eat dairy-free as well; they don't have dairy-free cheese, but were happy to take what we brought and use it for the pizza. Limited choices for toppings; this isn't the kind of pizzeria where you just select toppings from a list of 20. Instead they have specific selections and combinations available, and only a small number of those are certified GF, though others are probably OK for those who aren't overly sensitive.
Staff seemed to be very well trained and knowledgeable, and they didn't mind all of my questions! They offered 2 crust options, regular gluten-free and a cauliflower crust. I opted for the cauliflower and it was great! The menu has other options that are marked as gluten-free, and our waitress said that they can prepare almost everything else in the menu as gluten-free if requested (obviously substitutions would be made accordingly). In short, I plan to add CPK to my list of trusted restaurants and recommend giving it a try.
