Back in February I wrote an article on the gluten-free offerings at California Pizza Kitchen. I was lamenting the fact that they didn’t offer gluten-free pizza, but hoped that someday they might. Well, folks, it looks like that day is coming soon! According to an article on Nation’s Restaurant News, CPK will begin offering gluten-free pizza at the end of June as part of their new menu. Read below for more information:
On June 29, the chain is scheduled to roll out a new menu that will introduce nine new items, as well as a new focus on identifying options for better health and wellness, said CPK’s co-chief executive Rick Rosenfield.
The new menu, for example, will identify the chain’s use of natural chicken, turkey, pork and sausage products, as well as a new gluten-free pizza crust option, and salads with fewer than 600 calories for the full serving.
I can’t express how excited I am!! CPK was one of my “go-to” pizza places before starting the gluten-free diet. While I can go now and eat one of the other gluten-free menu items, it will be nice to go an enjoy a pizza, just like I used to do!
California Pizza Kitchen joins several other national chains in offering gluten-free pizza. Some of those other restaurants include:
I think that it is safe to say that there are many options available out there now. And, don’t forget that many local pizza places are starting to accommodate those who need to follow a gluten-free diet. Three cheers for choices!!!
California Pizza Kitchen has locations across the US and in several other countries. If you sign up for the CPK newsletter (on the left side of the home page), you will receive $5.00 off of your next visit. I am all about doing whatever I can to save money, so I made sure to take advantage of this. CPK is also on Facebook & Twitter.
**Please make sure to check with your local California Pizza Kitchen to ensure they have rolled out the new menu before making plans to go enjoy a gluten-free pizza. I would hate to see anyone let down.
