I was so excited to have a gf margarita pizza! The dough/crust was terrible and inedible- seriously. Awful experience. Had our order retaken twice! Took one hour to get our food and I was the only one who ordered anything gf. Also everyone's order was made wrong. I will never go to any CPK again. (System will not allow me to leave 0 stars so I had to leave one)

Their menu is not helpful for paleo dining. I asked what made an item gluten-laden and they could not answer. So I had salad and a piece of chicken.

Excellent!!!!! I was there with my mom and my brother (the 3 of us are Celiac) and OMG it was excellent! The taste is amazing, they have special care for the gluten free pizzas. And the best thing is that its certified by GiG!

Excellent staff knowledge. Not for this venue as they have full understanding but in general Be sure to specify when you go anywhere to eat that you are a medically diagnosed coeliac and not just gluten friendly which indicates life choice. Traveling around USA has proven more challenging than ever anticipated. We will be eating here as good cross section on menu available. Makes travelling life so much easier. Thank you

The GF pizza did not make me sick. I sat at a booth that overlooked the kitchen so I was able to watch my dinner being made and I was happy about the process to reduce cross contamination. Not dedicated GF but a pretty good option. Per the website “CERTIFIED GLUTEN-FREE Pizzas SERVED ON OUR CAULIFLOWER CRUST These gluten-free pizzas are prepared using the strict procedures approved by The Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), using a certified gluten-free crust and other ingredients verified by our suppliers as gluten-free. Please inform a manager of any allergies or special dietary needs (e.g. gluten intolerance) and consult our Allergen & Vegetarian/Vegan Menu Guide”

My kid was so excited to try this place and adored their cauliflower crust—however even after asking them to ensure it’s gluten free, they did not use their dedicated space to make his. Apparently you have to be very explicit and tell them to make sure they use their allergy protocols. Just saying gluten free isn’t enough for them to do so. He was very ill after.

Ordered two gluten free pizzas from here and made sure to note it was for someone with Celiac. I felt great after eating them and didn’t have any symptoms. It’s mediocre pizza, but such a convenient option! I’m grateful! They stepped up their game to be Celiac safe!

California Pizza Kitchen is Certified Gluten. Their pizza is on a Cauliflower crust and it is cooked in a designated area to ensure there is no cross-contamination. The gluten free menu has a few gluten free options and the pizza is delicious.

Visited the Wellington location and was pleasantly surprised with their gluten free options. I called ahead and verifed they had certified gluten free pizza available and they did. When we arrived I informed our server of our daughter's celiac diagnosis and felt comfortable that they were using proper procedures when handling her pizza. Food arrived and was labeled with a little pick that said gluten free. We even ordered 2 take and bakes that were certified gluten free also! My daughter was thrilled and I was grateful for such a smooth, safe dining experience. We will definitely visit this location again!

We ate here last night because of the certified gluten free pizza options. The waitress we had knew exactly what celiac was and even explained how my food would be prepared safely. I am very sensitive and didn’t have a reaction! My pizza was very good and my family liked theirs as well. I would definitely eat here again when I’m back in the area!

All of their certified gluten free meals contain dairy, so they can't accommodate gluten free and dairy free. There was a salad that would work if you're not concerned about cross contact with gluten, but it wouldn't work for dairy free celiacs.

Excellent gluten-free protocols and certified by GIG. The crust is very good although very thin, like a flatbread. It's made with cauliflower but don't let that deter you - I personally love cauliflower but thought it didn't taste like cauliflower at all.

What a pleasant surprise to discover that CPK has (very good) gluten free pizza and it’s certified. The manager brought out my pizza with gloves on and it had a pick designating it as gluten free. He also brought out my food separate from my boyfriends, just to make sure there was no chance of contamination. They clearly have a good process and train the staff well!

I just went there today, and they have a certified gluten-free menu. It has five pizzas on it. They prepare them in a very safe way to prevent cross-contamination. There are a lot of “no gluten ingredients” items on the menu, but they are not guaranteed gluten-free. The pizza is made with cauliflower crust, but you would never guess. It is absolutely delicious! I feel completely fine after eating it. The manager was quite knowledgeable about gluten as well.

I visited here this weekend, I am celiac and also have an intolerance to corn. I ordered the cedar planked salmon, the side it came with had corn so I subbed that out for a different side. The wait staff was very careful about my allergy. When the first side I picked didn’t work out due to a threat of cross-contamination, the manager came to the table to explain the issue with me and worked with me to pick a different, safer side. I was very impressed with their carefulness, it put my mind at ease and i had no reaction to the food I ate. The salmon was delicious:) I highly recommend.

They said the gluten free pizzas had their own space, they were familiar with needing separate utensils for cutting etc. I felt confident they would be careful. They are cauliflower crust, I had the pepperoni, sausage, mushroom pizza and it was very good.

The classic bbq chicken pizza was good. CPK only has GF cauliflower crust, but it’s thin, crispy and delicious. I’ve never had any issues at this location. They handle GF orders very seriously. Also, one pizza is the perfect size to split if you’re on a date.

Safe gf pizza. I wish they also had safe salad, but when I asked, she said only the pizza ordered from the gf certified menu can be guaranteed safe - no salads. Pizza was fine, nothing special. A safe (yet kind of boring) place to go when you’re in the city.

I’m celiac and dairy free, nothing in there for me, or others with my same condition.. honestly they’d shouldn’t be recommended for celiacs.. not much of anything in there for celiacs , they’d should improve their service for celiacs, population is growing on celiacs.

The Long Beach Marina CPK no longer has the certified gluten free stamp of approval on there menus anymore. They no longer had gluten-free pizza options. They told me they can make any pizza using a cauliflower crust. I asked if they have a separate cooking space for the pizza and they said no. We had to leave because my trust in the preparation is no longer with the establishment.

They had me speak with a manager right away when I told them I was had a “gluten allergy” (the server didn’t know what Celiac is but the manager did). They assured me they prep in a separate area and take it very serious. Their pizzas are certified GF! The pizza was actually quite good. Thin crust of course but it didn’t taste like cardboard.

After reviews on this app and speaking to staff for ourselves, we decided to give CPK a try. Ordered the Gluten-free BBQ Chicken pizza and were very pleased that our Nima tester gave us a smile. They have a separate prep area and we felt confident in their knowledge of cross-contamination. Alex (their trainer) and Sam (manager) were absolutely amazing in both explaining their procedures and overseeing our pizza prep. Ate there a 2nd time. Nima tested gluten. We had added pineapple and think that could have been the cause. Sam was appalled and bent over backwards to reassure and personally take care of the 2nd pizza (we opted for no pineapple that time). That one tested safe. Nice to share this app with Sam. I feel like she truly cared about Celiac safety.

Do not trust this CPK , they were grabbing toppings from the same line as the gluten pizzas. They have a lack of training on cross contamination. Had to give my pizza away to some one else. Do not trust this place.
