California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review: We have not once been disappointed by CPK. The lengthy list of hand-tossed and crispy-thin pizzas includes all the standards, but there are also inventive versions like spicy fennel sausage and poblano peppers, pear and Gorgonzola, and Thai chicken. Our favorites include the barbecued chicken, the most popular of the pizzas. You can also design your own. If you can tear yourself away from the pies --- we almost never can --- try one of the pastas, which come in varieties as diverse as jambalaya fettuccine and kung-pao spaghetti. Another Asian option, the crisp Chinese chicken salad, is also satisfying. Salad portions are large, so keep in mind that you can get a half order. Soups, appetizers, tacos, sandwiches made with good hearth-baked focaccia, and filling desserts round out the menu.
