California Pizza Kitchen Launches Fresh and Innovative New Menu to Middle East Locations

Introducing 19 new dishes and the first of its kind, the Cauliflower Pizza Crust

California Pizza Kitchen has a legacy of creating innovative pizza flavors that differentiates itself from any existing pizza worldwide. With the history of inventing the iconic Original BBQ Chicken Pizza in 1985 and becoming the first restaurant to offer gluten-free crust on its menu in 2013; now CPK introduces an updatedglobal menu featuring flavorful food and beverage innovations, with it’s main focus on the Cauliflower Pizza Crust, the first from the International restaurant brand.

The new Cauliflower Pizza Crust option is made with high-quality, gluten-free ingredients, is low in carbs and offers a unique source of vegetable fuel that segregrates the conventitional taste of any regular pizza and has high nutritional value.

California Pizza Kitchen’s menu also includes a variety of dishes that fuse the California culture with diverse ethnic and global flavors. For the small plates, CPK added the Mexican Street Corn which is roasted with smoked paprika, feta and parmesan cheese and served with fresh cilantro, lime and its signature ranch sauce; while for appetizers, the lettuce wrap is made with fresh shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts and scallions toasted in spicy ginger soy sauce. The wrap has the option of chicken, shrimps or mixed for diners to choose to indulge in.

A favorite globally inspired pizza style is the Thai Chicken Pizza prepared with Thai peanut sauce, mozzarella cheese and topped with crisp bean sprouts, julienne carrots, silvered scallions and fresh cilantro. For the classic pizza styles, favorites include the Mushroom Pepperoni Sausage Pizza and Sicilian Pizza which falls under the crispy thin crust pizza style. In addition to the renewed menu, CPK’s handcrafted mocktails such as the Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, Frozen Peach Lemonade, Piña Colada, Passionfruit Mango Iced Tea and CPK’s own California-style Sangria made with fresh fruits can not be missed for a memorable dining experience for customers.

These menus include much more that guests can relish on and are prepared through an open kitchen and large pizza oven, which are the symbol of CPK, so guests can watch as chefs prepare their meals fresh from scratch every day. It also radiates the feeling of dining on a street in California with an interior space mood with a unique California sensibility.
