California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Though it’s a chain, California Pizza Kitchen still draws huge crowds. CPK lures diners with pies boasting creative-turned-mainstay toppings like barbecue, Thai and chipotle chicken, all finished in a wood-burning oven so the crust stays slightly crisp and chewy, while meat on the pizzas remains tender. Pastas, salads, and even grilled rib-eye and fish tacos round out the menu. Don't pass up the red velvet cake for dessert.
