California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: The list of two-dozen crispy-thin pizzas includes all the standards, but there also are inventive versions like wild mushroom, mango tandoori chicken and BLT --- complete with mayonnaise. Our favorites, however, include the roasted garlic chicken with garlic-shallot butter. You also can design your own pie. If you can tear yourself away from the pizzas, try one of the pastas --- we recommend the Thai linguine with spicy peanut-ginger sauce. Another Asian option, the crisp Chinese chicken salad, is satisfying as well. 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. The strawberry lemonade is a must. Also located in Leawood, 913-327-5290; and the Kansas City International Airport.
