California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review: The list of CPK's crispy-thin pizzas (some with gluten-free crusts) satisfies purists, but there are also inventive versions like wild mushroom, mango tandoori chicken, and B.L.T. --- complete with mayonnaise. Our favorites are the roasted garlic chicken slicked with garlic-shallot butter, and the barbecued chicken, the most popular of the pizzas; you can also design your own from a seemingly endless array of toppings. If you can tear yourself away from the pies, try one of the pastas; we recommend the spaghetti Bolognese or the jambalaya fettuccine. Salad portions are large, so keep in mind that you can get a half-order. Soups, appetizers, sandwiches made with good hearth-baked focaccia and filling desserts round out the menu. A decent wine list, augmented by cocktails and craft beer, shares space with sodas and house-made lemonade.
