CPK Adds a Vegetarian Twist to Its Original BBQ Chicken Pizza for Summertime

CPK celebrates the fresh flavors of summer with a new selection of artfully crafted, seasonal dishes and drinks now available at CPK locations nationwide.* CPK’s summer menu includes the return of fan favorites like the California Fields Salad and Strawberry Shortcake, both bursting with fresh seasonal fruit, summer-fresh beverages like the Sparkling Watermelon-Lime and alcoholic Sparkling Tropical Haven cocktail made with coconut rum, pineapple and raspberry, and, back by popular fan demand, the return of the Broccoli Sun-Dried Tomato Fusilli.

In addition, CPK is introducing a veggie-forward spin on its most iconic dish, the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, with the arrival of the new BBQ Heirloom Carrot Flatbread. Made with colorful, roasted baby rainbow heirloom carrots, smoked Gouda, charred red onion petals, CPK’s signature BBQ sauce and housemade ranch atop hand-stretched dough, the flatbread follows other recent vegetable-centric additions to the CPK menu like Spicy Buffalo and Sticky Asian Cauliflower small plates, protein- and veggie-packed Power Bowls and industry-first Cauliflower Pizza Crust introduced last year. 

Available at CPK locations for a limited time, the new summer seasonal menu features the following items: 

  • BBQ Heirloom Carrot Flatbread: Inspired by our Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, this vegetarian spin features hearth-roasted carrots, smoked Gouda, charred red onions, Parmesan, fresh cilantro, classic BBQ sauce, and housemade ranch dressing. 
  • California Fields Salad: Fresh watermelon, strawberries and field greens with housemade Champagne vinaigrette, Feta, fresh basil, and California pistachios. 
  • Broccoli Sun-Dried Tomato Fusilli: Baby broccolini, house marinated sun-dried tomatoes, Parmesan, fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil & thyme, sauteed with California olive oil. 
  • Strawberry Shortcake: our fresh shortcake biscuit piled high with seasonal strawberries, whipped cream, and housemade candied lemon zest. 
  • Sparkling Tropical Haven: Escape to paradise with our newest cocktail featuring La Marca Prosecco, RumHaven Coconut Rum, raspberry puree, and pineapple juice. 
  • Sparkling Watermelon-Lime: Perfectly refreshing Perrier Lemon Sparkling Water with a light watermelon flavor, fresh mint, and lime (non-alcoholic & non-refillable).
