staff is very knowledgeable about gf. it is always delicious. I always get the bbq chicken pizza and it never disappoints. I also love their frozen pizza that you can buy in stores. obeof my favorite sit down pizza joints. I have never gotten sick here and it is always delicious!!!
I watched their staff make my pizza and when they prepared to bring it out to me They carried it unboxed passed the regular pizza crust says they were being tossed in the air. in fact boxing of all pizzas gluten-free or not happen in this area being exposed to flour in the air. While they don't claim to be a gluten-free facility this was particularly careless. I've been in there three times and gotten sick all three times they are not Celiac's friendly. I tried pointing this out to the manager but he didn't seem to care and just looked at me and said "that's how we do things". I would say skip California Pizza Kitchen and just go to Wasatch Pizza instead
This was a pretty decent place to eat out, but be aware that if you are celiac or gluten intolerant, you will be limited to a pizza menu with only four choices on it. Make sure and all four the special gluten free pizza menu as these are not shown on the regular menu. If you opt to order something other than a pizza, it will be an entree salad and they had four to choose from that sounded pretty good. I ended up with one of the gluten free pizzas and a wedge salad that was enjoyable. Update 12 hours later - here I am in agony from being glutened by eating here. Changing from four to two stars - no clue what caused it, but I can only guess the caution in meal preparation was not there. Wish people realized how sensitive one can be to gluten, but I suppose eating out is always a risk. Maybe better training for staff would drive this home.
Love eating here. Great gourmet salads and pizza. I have never had a problem with cross contamination, never gotten sick.
The pizza is delicious! The staff is kind and knowledgable about what you can eat.
The first GF pizza I got was Just awful. It was dry and didn't taste good at all. The CPK staff was super nice about it and gave me a free pizza and dessert to make up for it.
Wonderful tasting pizza! Excellent service and they were careful and attentive to my gf needs. Only bummer is I can't eat the bread they serve as appetizer... Wish they had another option. But the pizza makes it withy the trip and wait while the rest of my party eats the bread....
I loved Callifornia Pizza Kitchen. When we went in they gave us a GF menu. I ordered the BBQ Chicken pizza with bacon and it was excellent. My Husband has celiacs and I have a gluten sensitvity. neither of us got sick and we downloaded the free app and received a free pizza, next time we go we will get a free drink. The staff was friendly and the crust was amazing.
Limited gluten free options. Disappointed since such a wide menu otherwise.
I have eaten here many times without a problem. Pizza is great and staff is knowledgeable. Wish they had gluten free bread, though
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.
They have very strict safety procedures for preparing their gf pizza and they have partnered with the gluten intolerance group to develop these. Check out info available online. There are three gf pizza choices and a few other menu options. My child with celiac did not get sick and pizza is yummy.
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.
They have 4 pizzas that are gluten free and safe for people with celiac. Next month they’ll have the option of regular gf crust or cauliflower crust. I ordered the bbq chicken, and it was quite good. Less than five minutes after ordering off the GF menu and telling the waitress it’s an intolerance and not a preference, she brought bread to the table and placed right in front of me.
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
Great experience. Knowledgeable about gluten "allergy" and necessary procedures to decrease risk of cross contact. For example, toppings for gf pizzas stored separately and blue gloves are worn when assembling gf pizzas. Our server was exceptionally kind and careful. The margherita pizza was delicious! We experienced no symptoms and ordered a second pepperoni pizza for take out. Our server even opened new carton of take out boxes. My sons said the pepperoni pizza was great, too!
We've eaten at other restaurants from this chain and the wait staff has always been really good. Tonight we asked out waitress about the certified gluten free pizza and she was very snooty telling us that we only had 4 to choose from and nothing else- which was fine. Then she brought bread and oil and a salad full of croutons 😣 Luckily, the pizza was prepared with the care it required. So service was disappointing but pizza was great. Just gotta be on your toes.
Went there a few times when in town before being diagnosed with Celiac, but afterwards has become the go to restaurant to go to. Their GF pizza is absolutely delicious! It is the best GF pizza I've had & would rank it as a top tier overall pizza. They regularly mark the pizza with an allergy warning toothpick & bring out separate from other orders at table while wearing gloves. Only drawback is the options for other GF items is limited.
In terms of GF pizza, CPK is great. They have the GF pizza prepared separately, and the staff seem very knowledgeable about the whole “gluten free” and “celiac” thing. If you’re going there looking for something other than pizza, that’s when you’ll be disappointed. They don’t have many other options if you are strictly gluten free. If “gluten free” is only a preference, then they can adjust several of the items on the main menu to accommodate that, but it won’t be prepared separately. The GF pizza seems to be the only main dish that’s 100% gluten free, but it’s definitely worth it! -Their pizza was my brother’s favorite out of all the other GF pizzas we’ve tried- and that’s saying something. (Their strawberry cooler, by the way, is absolutely delicious, too.)
They are very aware of the difference between a wheat allergy and Celiac's. Any pizza can be made on a gluten free crust, but they have a septate (smaller) list of pizzas that are prepared using certified procedures/ingredients that are safe for Celiac's! I've eaten here several times and have never gotten sick!
Excellent GF pizza. I've had the BBQ and sausage, mushroom and pepperoni pizzas and have never had a problem. The sauce is good, not too much. The crust is has good taste, texture and is chewy. In speaking with the manager of this store I learned that California Pizza has a dedicated area for doing these GF pizzas. I haven't tried any of their other GF items. NOTE: I'm adding a PS to this review. Their GF pizza crust seems to have changed at some point toward the end of August 2017. I found that instead of it being the tasty crust I had previously enjoyed, the texture changed to where it tasted like many other not-so-great pizza crust taste...bland and a bit pasty. I noticed this twice on visits at the end of August and mid-September. This was quite disappointing, causing me to rethink my original rating of 5 stars and give it only 3.
As others have said, gluten free menu is very limited with other 4 pizzas. There are a few gluten free options on the main menu also. Had the pepperoni sausage pizza which was excellent. Lovely location also with outdoor seating. Would recommend a visit.
