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, off-beat, and likely to raise eyebrows among traditionalists. We love their Rosemary Chicken Potato pizza, and also admire the tandoori chicken and Thai chicken pies. Not everything is so ingenous: 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.
