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.
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.
I debated whether or not to leave a review because I didn’t actually chance eating here. I was seated and they did have a “certified GF” pizza menu —although it’s only 3 options of pizza. They also have a cauliflower crust option too. The place was pretty dead as it was a little after 4pm. After more than 15 min the waitress came over and said, “have you been helped yet?” This was very absurd given she was clearly the ONLY waitress. There was one other table besides me dining there. I order the GF pizza. I tell her I have an extreme mushroom allergy. She says she’ll write it down. So things are looking up. Then, she says “would you like bread with your pizza”. Me: “um, I want the gluten free pizza” her: “yeah, but do you want the bread still? It comes with the pizza”. ....Me: umm is it gluten free? Her: no, it just comes with pizza. Me: no, I’m not ordering GF for the fun of it, so I don’t want bread. She walked off to go put the order in. At that point I was too scared of getting mushroomed or glutened so I asked her to cancel the order and I just left. After the first 1/2 hour I wasn’t willing to risk it. If the waitress is that clueless I can’t chance what is communicated to the kitchen.
Don’t do it... my pizza was not done and cool to the touch. I asked server to cook it more and she said next time I should order my pizza crispy .. got my order back and yes it was crispy 😖 black on the bottom and now over cooked. Plus it is super expensive!!
Staff was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable! They have a separate prep area where they make the GF pizzas. I had their “Mushroom/Pepperoni/Sausage” pizza, and they were accommodating enough to swap the mushrooms for GF Bacon... other toppings can be added however are not kept in the GF area so there is risk of CC. The pizza’s are about 9 inches.
After trusting this location, it's now on our family's growing no-go list. I ordered the GF pizza the night before my son was to leave for a band trip to Disney. After dinner, he went to the final rehearsal. He vomited at the rehearsal, jeopardizing his participation in the trip. The band nurse told me he could still attend if he doesn't vomit again and if he doesn't have a fever. I was really worried until I came home and my celiac daughter was shaking and trying to throw up, saying she never wants to eat pizza again. Sadly, it was a relief to confirm that they were 'just' glutened and my son wouldn't miss the trip we already paid for. This situation caused so much stress for our family.
My son who has Celiac frequently orders their gluten free BBQ chicken pizza and has not had any adverse reactions to it. We always tell them that he has Celiac so that they will be extra careful. When we order it to go, it comes in a box with a sticker on it that says “Certified Gluten Free.”
They do offer certified gluten free options now! They have several pizza options, as well as a cauliflower crust (which is delicious). Hostess and server knew what they were talking about, service was great. Might have been the best gf pizza I ever had. Not to mention the refreshing mocktails. Never been there before, but I’m a fan now.
They have a dedicated space and dedicated toppings for gluten free pizzas. The crust is a little better than typical gluten free crust. The toppings are pretty good as well. Doesn't even come close to gluten free pizza in Rome but it will satisfy a craving in a pinch.
If you are in the mood for a pizza while in Hawaii, try them out for a quick bite. Our server was very knowledgeable and had a separate gluten free menu. I always love their original barbecue chicken pizza. You can get it in a g-free crust or (as the server suggested) the g-free cauliflower crust. It was delicious and I felt great!
Small dedicated GF/Celiac menu (4 pizzas), BUT with peace of mind as they are the four that adhere to the strict protocol to avoid cross contamination. (They can make their other pizzas on a GF crust or their new cauliflower crust, but cannot guarantee no CC). I had the BBQ Chicken Pizza with Avocado and Pineapple along with a GF Apple Cider - and it was so good! Server was friendly and knowledgeable, reasonable pricing too.
I have eaten here many times without a problem. Pizza is great and staff is knowledgeable. Wish they had gluten free bread, though
