California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is a leader in authentic California-style cuisine and is widely known for its innovative menu items. California Pizza Kitchen provides a range of creative dishes, from signature California-style hearth-baked pizzas, creative salads, pastas, soups and sandwiches to extensive beer and wine lists with a full bar in most locations.
Curbside delivery, take-out and delivery services are available at most locations for added convenience.
California Pizza Kitchen began in 1985 when attorneys Rick Rosenfield and Larry Flax traded in the courtroom for the dining room. Having always wanted to get into the restaurant business, they pitched their legal pads and turned toward California-style pizzas.
After several months of exploring and countless hours of research, they set out to re-invent pizza in the United States opening the first California Pizza Kitchen in Beverly Hills, Calif. on March 27, 1985.
The hearth is central to the California Pizza Kitchen experience and gives the California-style pizzas their signature taste.
CPK’s hearth-baked pizzas are cooked rather quickly, 3-7 minutes, in approximately 500 degree heat. The hearth bakes the pizza dough to absolute perfection, producing a crust characteristic of fine bread.It also gives meats and vegetables a slightly smoky flavor, and helps give California Pizza Kitchen favorites like our Original Barbeque Chicken and Thai Chicken pizzas their distinct taste.
California Pizza Kitchen continues to be an active part in their communities by offering CPKids Restaurant Tours where children have the opportunity to get an up close and personal tour of the restaurant behind-the-scenes and make their own pizzas.
In addition, CPK provides schools with complimentary Student of the Month Certificates and Pizza Passes (free CPKids meal for one month!) to award to exceptional students throughout the year. CPK also hosts CPKids FUNdraising events to help schools raise money by donating a percentage of their purchases on a designated night to their school or activity.
Since its inception, it has been a fundamental principle of California Pizza Kitchen to become involved in charitable activities and support charitable organizations in the communities that CPK serves. To maintain that commitment, each new California Pizza Kitchen opening is held in conjunction with a local children’s charity. Immediately following the grand opening of the restaurant, a day is designated as “Pizza Day” where 100% of pizza sales are donated to the local charity.
In addition to the charitable activities of the CPK Foundation, thousands of dollars worth of product are contributed annually to help children and the organizations that serve them.
In 1999, California Pizza Kitchen partnered with Kraft Pizza Company, the nation’s leading frozen pizza company, to launch the new line of California Pizza Kitchen Frozen Pizza in Southern California.
The frozen line features seven of the restaurant’s most popular pizzas, including BBQ Chicken, Thai Chicken, Rosemary Potato Chicken, Five Cheese and Tomato, Portobello Mixed Mushroom, Grilled Vegetable and Southwestern Chicken Burrito.
In 2004, the line of California Pizza Kitchen Frozen Pizzas began distribution in all major national markets.
