Gluten+Free+Pizza California Pizza Kitchen Gluten-Free Pizzas Review


I think I may have found the answer to eating pizza when I know that I should not out of fear of feeling sick. A couple of weeks ago, my family and I tried the new gluten-free pizza at California Pizza Kitchen.

On October, 16, 2013, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority on California-style pizza and industry leader in creative dining, announced the launch of a new line of gluten-free pizzasavailable at restaurants nationwide through a partnership with the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG). The four gluten-free pizzas are prepared using strict procedures set forth and approved by the GIG, including a certified gluten-free crust and other ingredients verified by California Pizza Kitchen’s suppliers as gluten-free. GIG will also conduct regular site inspections and audits to ensure all guidelines are being met.

We ate the THE ORIGINAL BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA – With their legendary BBQ sauce, smoked Gouda, red onions and cilantro. You can add Nueske’s applewood smoked bacon for even more flavor, but we do not eat bacon so we did try but, I am sure it taste good.  We really enjoyed it.  The flavors of each topping were bursting with flavor.  I do not eat a lot of bread, so the thin crust was perfect.  My daughter does not eat a lot of bread, because of her asthma and prefers thin crust as well.  The gluten-free pizza worked out well for us.  My son loved as well, but he loves pizza.  We likeCPK, so this post may be a little biased, because we have enjoyed everything we have ever ordered on the menu.   

The other three pizzas are:

    PEPPERONI – A combination of rustic and spicy pepperoni, fresh Mozzarella and wild oregano. Add white truffle oil to incorporate a unique element to America’s favorite pizza.
·         MUSHROOM PEPPERONI SAUSAGE – Cremini mushrooms, rustic pepperoni, spicy Italian sausage, torn basil, Mozzarella and wild oregano.


·         MARGHERITA – The classic. Italian tomatoes with fresh Mozzarella, basil and Parmesan. 
The Gluten Free Food Service (GFFS) certification logo, an industry program of GIG, will be displayed on all California Pizza Kitchen menus to indicate the independent verification of quality, integrity and purity of food preparation policies, education and standards. Any of California Pizza Kitchen’s pizzas may be made on a gluten-free crust for an additional $2.00, but due to current kitchen space, only the pizzas listed above can be prepared using GIG’s certified procedures. 
We paired our pizza with a Caesar salad.  There is nothing like having a meal that does not leave you feeling sick or like you have over indulged.
