California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority on California-style pizza and industry leader in creative dining, today announced the next piece of the brand’s culinary evolution with the introduction of California Flatbreads. The new flatbreads are made-to-order on California Pizza Kitchen’s new hand-tossed crust and baked crisp in a hearth oven. The Flatbreads are currently available at all restaurant locations nationwide and priced on average for $5.95 each.
Just like its signature hand-tossed pizzas, the new California Flatbreads are made with fresh, flavorful ingredients and embrace California-style cuisine. The three new California Flatbreads guests can choose from include: The Bianco with whipped truffle cream, Gorgonzola, Mozzarella and fresh sage; The Shaved Mushroom + Spinach topped with cremini mushrooms, sautéed spinach, and California olive oil with Romano and Parmesan; and The Spicy Fennel Sausage + Poblano featuring torn sausage, fresh Mozzarella, fire-roasted chilies and wild Greek oregano with spicy marinara.
“Our delicious California Flatbreads offer our guests an innovative way to enjoy our new crust as a light appetizer that showcases our unique flavor combinations and California creativity,” said Brian Sullivan, SVP Culinary Innovation. “We wanted to present our guests with the finest ingredients and bold flavor combinations they can enjoy in a fresh new format only available at California Pizza Kitchen.”
California Flatbreads is just one of the latest culinary innovations to be introduced by California Pizza Kitchen. Last month California Pizza Kitchen debuted their new hand-tossed pizza dough and reformulated recipes setting a new standard in the gourmet pizza craft.

California Pizza Kitchen will also launch a Sweet Deal for Two promotion on Monday, September 16. Guests will be able to enjoy their choice of one appetizer, including the new California Flatbreads, two entrées and a dessert from a pre-selected menu all for $30. Guests can take advantage of this promotion Monday through Thursday at participating California Pizza Kitchen locations. Guests who are registered members of the Pizza Dough Rewards program are eligible to receive an additional free appetizer.
