Was able to see my pizza being made in a safe location. The chef also used fresh gloves. Delicious Certified GF BBQ pizza!

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.

Excellent place! Very knowledgeable and kind staff. Delicious pizza, even my partner who is not gluten free thinks that it's one of the top pizza places. Their app also allows you to weed out menu items you can't have.

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.

Not a ton of options, but the pizza is pretty good and they are very careful and knowledgeable about proper preparation. Never had any issues!

They have a separate GF menu and made a special effort to consult the cook about individual items. The cauliflower crust pizza is phenomenal! Dessert options are limited to ice cream. I will be returning here often!

Pretty disappointing. The pizza hardly had any sauce and was mediocre at best.

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.

Good pizza. Quick service. They have a dedicated GF menu, and can do additional items as well. The colyflower base is really yummy.

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.

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.

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.

Love CPK. I think they have some of the best GF pizza around and they take special care to keep from cc. They also have a new cauliflower crust that is GF and yummy too. I wish they would also do GF pasta.

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.

It’s not actually gluten free. The pizzas are cooked in the same space so there is cross contamination.

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.

Believe it’s very server dependent. I asked for a gf pizza and he said no problem.... didn’t come out with “allergy pick” like I’ve heard others... still thought it would be okay... but sick today.

Upon walking in was advised gluten free was cooked in a separate part of the kitchen. Waiter taking order was knowledgeable. My 9 year old son and I are both celiacs. We had a gluten free pizza each and they were delicious. Nil issues later.

This was the only location I’ve ever eaten at, so my experiences are specific to that location and staff. If you’re strictly gluten free or celiac then you’ll probably be fine. However, if you have a number of other allergies then you might not be so lucky. Not all of my allergies were in their allergy menu (I have a corn allergy) and the waiter was super nice but management had no idea how to handle this. I handed them a card I have with a list of my allergies and they kept handing it back and insisting I use an iPad to type in my allergies. I explained multiple times that I needed to talk to someone instead of using the iPad but they kept pushing me to use it and eventually I did. Not surprisingly, it didn’t include all of my allergens and it said I couldn’t eat anything. We flagged down the manager again and showed him and gave him my card and he finally talked to me. The meal I had was good and I didn’t get sick or anything, but my experiences trying to talk with them and not being listened to was very frustrating. There were things on the menu I could eat and the actual conversation resolved this, but that definitely took up a lot of our time in the restaurant and I’m not sure I’d go back to that location.

The pizza was gluten free. The waitress was nice. The decor was decent. Why the low review? My GF pizza was $20.00!! My friends avacado egg rolls were $13.00 and his non GF pizza was $16.00! His Mojito was $10.00! This pizza were personal pizzas. Not big pizzas. Personal pizzas. My wife says that's Boston...... I don't care where it is that is NUTZ!

The pizza is certified gf. At this location they use cauliflower crust and it’s delicious. The regular pizza crust is cooked off location and brought in and then only rice flour is used in the restaurant so that no regular flour is flying around. That way no cross contamination can occur. The ingredients are gf. I had a bbq chicken pizza and it was so good. I didn’t get sick and the staff went out of their way to make sure of it.

It’s a beautiful location, with a nice ambience. The staff was very helpful with their dedicated gluten-free menu. They were very specific about what we could substitute and what we could night. We had the pepperoni mushroom sausage pizza. We also had a Waldorf salad. Both were delicious!
