California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: The list of two dozen crispy-thin pizzas includes all the standards, but there are also inventive versions turned out by this popular chain. Our favorites are the roasted garlic chicken, with its garlic-shallot butter, and the barbecued chicken, the most favored of its pies. Of course, you can also design your own. If you can tear yourself away from the pizzas --- we almost never can --- try one of the pastas; we recommend the asparagus spinach spaghettini. A tasty habanero carnitas pizza and a roasted vegetable salad are also available. 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.
