This is specially for the 91-5431 Kapolei Parkway, Suite 500 Kapolei, HI 96707 CPK location: I spoke somewhat extensively with the server about the fact that I had celiac and that cross contamination seriously affects me. He assured me I was safe and that he would be sure to let the kitchen staff know and they would take all necessary precautions. I trusted him. I ordered lettuce wraps, which I’ve had at other locations and was totally fine. I also ordered the bbq chicken pizza. This was the problem. I only had one piece and took the rest to go. That night it hit me. I was on a girls weekend trip so I told myself that it could have been attributed to something else. BUT I had some left over pizza the next afternoon and within 20 minuets I knew the pizza was the culprit. It made my life pretty miserable for several days. I’ll never trust CPK again, which really bums me out because I loved their food. Just not worth it anymore.
The gf pizza is grainy and bland. However, the worst part is that, even though they assured me they take very careful precautions, I have been violently ill for days. My body is rejecting everything since I ate there, even fresh fruit which usually calms my system down. Maybe it's okay for people who are slightly intolerant, but it is clearly not celiac safe. I will not be dining there again.
Amazing pizza but even more amazing staff. So knowledgable and assured me there would be special precautions taken. Fabulous.
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!
Not a huge GF menu but they do have certified gluten free pizzas in both a larger size and in a kids size that includes a kid sized drink. The crust is a cauliflower crust and was surprisingly tasty. (I can’t stand the taste of cauliflower, but love the crust.) My daughter and I both have celiac and neither of us have had a reaction any of the times we have ordered there. I spoke with a manager the last time we ordered (a couple of weeks ago) and he was extremely friendly and interested in keeping us free of gluten. It’s the only local place we feel safe eating pizza anymore.
Very good g-free pizza with cauliflower crust that didn’t taste like it. 😊Designated area w a good variety of toppings you can adjust to your needs. Justin was very knowledgeable and helpful in making a selection. I’m celiac and did fine. Highly recommend.
Wish they had more variety but it’s amazing that they have certified gf pizzas made in a dedicated area. Pricey for a little pizza but worth it to know my kids can eat safely. As always, talk to the manager and request a gf menu. Let them know it’s a necessity and not a preference.
This location (possibly all?) doesn’t have a GF crust except cauliflower crust. Super nice staff but GF menu is less than stellar. No real pizza crust options.
I specifically requested a Gluten Free pizza, saying it was an allergy and not a preference due to my Celiac's. I know at one time they carried a GF crust that was not cauliflower so when my food arrived, I assumed it was that. I questioned the waitress just to be sure, because my intuition was that something was off. She assured me everything was fine. I had almost eaten the whole thing when I was told that it was not gluten free. The manager pretended to act shocked, had me fill out an incident report, but also told me I should have asked for the GF menu in the first place. I got sick in the bathroom before I left the restaurant and I am still feeling sick. They didn't take responsibility for the negligence and I wouldn't wish this upon anyone.
Pretty good for a cheap pizza place. It’s always a good last option.
We came here our first night in Waikiki. We had the BBQ pizza on GF cauliflower crust and the Italian sausage option. Our server handed us a menu that had the GF options on it. The server seemed super rushed and not interested in our allergies, so we were nervous she wouldn't talk to kitchen and take precautions about cross contamination, but the food was good and no reactions. We wouldn't eat here by choice, just because it wasn't very special or exciting, but the flavor was good and we didn't get sick - just not anything really worth craving again.
We had the privilege to order a gluten free cauliflower crust pizza with the General Manager, Brett Reed. Our daughter has several allergies and Mr. Reed personally went back to talk with the cooks in regards to her allergies. He was so incredible and we really felt at ease ordering with him as he was very much aware of allergy safety. We will be returning here.
Great cauliflower crust pizza!
We came here expecting very good gluten free pizza based on what we had heard from others. However, the GF pizza was just on their cauliflower crust, which although fine, was quite flat and a little oily. Also, the cauliflower crust contains both eggs and milk, so if that is a problem for you, there is nothing you can have here except for salads. They were cautious and careful about our gluten free order. In general if you have other allergies, this is not the best place, both because of the ingredients of the crust and because when we asked to change up some toppings our server got a little touchy and reminded us forcefully that CPK does not have a design-your-own pizza option.
I ordered a Cobb salad that they assured me was gluten free and I was very ill. Don't pretend you are are serving gluten free food if you're not!!! My husband had a great meal because he can eat gluten.
Excellent Pizza both times I’ve been. Really tasty GF options.
A bit pricey but I had the Cauliflower crust and it was delicious!
The gluten free menu was kind of lacking, only having pizza options and like a grilled chicken option plus salads, but I just got a plain pie. Was nice because a manager has to oversee and cook the entire gluten free meal and she came out with the pizza letting me know that. My only problem was that it was overpriced ($16 for a small cheese pizza) but I guess that’s expected in the middle of Los Angeles.
Excellent gluten free service. We ate at this restaurant 3 times in a week and each time a great experience. Manager knowledgeable about cross-contamination and coeliac disease. None of us experienced symptoms afterwards. Highly recommend.
I’ve eaten here twice and am very sensitive but haven’t gotten sick!
We usually have luck at cpk, but at this location, the kitchen did not follow gf procedures. The waiter did not seem apologetic, but the manager came out and apologized and comped our meal. She said she didnt know what went wrong in the preparation. Luckily, our daughter did not get sick, but we were pretty frustrated that their kitchen staff did not know proper procedures. I would stay away. Ft Lauderdale has other options for GF.
Wait staff were knowledgeable of gluten free and cross contamination. Gluten free food was cooked in a separate part of the kitchen. My 9 year old was able to have a kids gluten free cheese pizza. I had the Margherita pizza and iced tea. All was yummy and had no issues later.
Not too many options as far as pizza types go. We got the BBQ Chicken GF option. The crust is super thin and was a bit too burned on the end. We had requested added bacon and it wasn’t on there. Overall good flavor and a nice portion size. We split one, and three slices each was sufficient and filling.
My wife has celiac disease, and we have eaten at this California Pizza kitchen twice now. The gluten free menu wasn’t very big I think it had four or five pizza’s on it. We was very impressed about how seriously they take the gluten free order. The manager brought my wife’s food to the table and explained exactly how it was prepared in the kitchen. This CPK in Tempe marketplace is a great place for those who has celiac disease.
At first our server did not seem to understand the importance of our needing my daughter’s meal to be completely gluten-free (because she’s a Celiac), so we asked to speak to the manager, just to be sure her meal would be handled properly. The manager, a very young woman came out and assured us it would. She not only took care of her meal personally, she brought it out to my daughter herself AND came to check up on her and our table later. We are new to this whole gluten-free & Celiac “thing,” as my daughter has just been diagnosed, but I would recommend CPK and go back to eat at this location.
They only sell a cauliflower crust now. They no longer sell a gluten free crust.
