THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: You have to have a sense of humor to enjoy CPK’s outrageous pizza toppings. They are innovative, offbeat and likely to raise eyebrows among traditionalists. That’s probably a quick and then forgotten reaction, though, since this is one of the country’s most popular chains. We enjoy the rosemary-chicken-potato pizza, the tandoori chicken and the Thai chicken pies. Not everything is so ingenious: Sticklers for the conventional will find pepperoni; vegetarian; and five-cheese-and-fresh-tomato pies. Hungry for more? Check out the menu for soups, salads, sandwiches and pasta dishes. This tiled, shiny-clean restaurant is casual, fun and often crowded. Other locations.
