California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review: CPK is so much more than a pizza parlor. The extensive menu offers a surprising selection of healthy soups, salads, tacos and sandwiches in addition to more than two dozen crispy-thin pizzas with such inventive toppings as roasted garlic and artichoke, California Club (with avocado and bacon), pear and Gorgonzola, and B.L.T. --- complete with mayonnaise. Our favorites are the Thai chicken with peanut sauce and vegetables, and the wild mushroom dressed with mushroom-walnut pesto. While it’s difficult to tear yourself away from the pies, we recommend that you try one of the pastas, perhaps the rich garlic cream fettuccine with your choice of meat toppings. Vegetarians will like the asparagus and spinach spaghetti. Salad portions are large, so keep in mind that you can get a half-order. Small plates, appetizers, desserts, and a large selection of wine, beer and spirits are available, too.
