California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review: CPK offers a broad range of dishes with international flavors. Offerings for lighter appetites called ‘small cravings’ include Tuscan panzanella salad and a spicy chicken tinga quesadilla with house-made ranchito sauce. Barbecued chicken is the most popular of the pizzas, but we would go for the BLT pizza, the Jamaican jerk chicken pizza or white pizza with apple wood-smoked bacon and sautéed spinach. Options geared towards contemporary health concerns include making pizza dough with honey whole-grain crust, and multigrain penne is available for many of the pastas. Salads are generous, so keep in mind that half-orders are available. Soups, appetizers, sandwiches made with good hearth-baked focaccia and filling desserts round out the menu. Chocolate soufflé cake with fudge sauce is a favorite. In addition to wine and beer, there are martinis, mojitos, margaritas and a list of specialty cocktails.
