California Pizza Kitchen Launches New Take-and-Bake Option

Twenty varieties of well-known CPK pizzas will be available.

California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) has made a bold move into other people’s kitchens with its new take-and-bake offering.

Options will include the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, Thai Chicken Pizza and the California Veggie Pizza. There are 20 pizza varieties in all with hand-tossed and gluten-free cauliflower crusts. The pies can be baked in a 450° oven for 7-10 minutes and finished with included fresh garnishes.

“We’ve cracked the code on the very best takeout and delivery pizza experience, bar none,” said Jim Hyatt, CEO and President of CPK. “We believe every pizza is best enjoyed fresh and hot from the oven, which is why our iconic yellow hearth pizza ovens are the heartbeat of our kitchens. For our guests who prefer to enjoy CPK at home, whether grabbing takeout after work or ordering delivery for pizza night with family and friends, we’ve created CPK Take and Bake Pizzas to ensure you enjoy our creative, California-style pizzas just as fresh, hot and delicious as you would at our table.”

“California-style pizza celebrates creative flavors and high-quality, fresh ingredients, using pizza crust as the canvas,” added Brian Sullivan, Executive Chef and SVP of Culinary Innovation at CPK. “We were inspired to create Take and Bake Pizzas to give our takeout and delivery guests the same restaurant-quality experience at home as they’d have in our restaurants. That means bringing our premium ingredients like hand-torn rustic pepperoni, Nueske’s applewood-smoked bacon, fresh sliced avocado, smoked Gouda, garlic scampi shrimp, flavorful sauces, and a variety of fresh produce … to elevate the home pizza experience and make meal time easy and delicious.”
