Bouncing back from its brush with Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2020, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) has signed on to become the official pizza of the Los Angeles Dodgers, last year’s World Series champs.

With the exclusive multi-year partnership between the two brands, Dodger fans can now enjoy CPK pizzas, salads and more at Dodger Stadium on the Field, Loge and Reserve Levels as well as in the newly renovated Left Field Pavilion.

Each of CPK’s four branded dining locations at Dodger Stadium will offer a selection of signature dishes, including the Original BBQ Chicken, Pepperoni and Cheese Pizzas made on a traditional crust.

The new CPK Dodger Stadium menu will also include favorites like the Original BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad, Caesar Salad, Spinach Artichoke Dip, Spicy Milano pizza and the option of a gluten-free vegetable-powered crust. CPK will also provide menu items for fans anxious to get back to the game action at the new grab-and-go concession location in Center Field.

“This partnership unites two Southern California brands that are woven into the fabric and spirit of Los Angeles,” said CPK Chief Marketing Officer Scott Hargrove in a press release. “The L.A. Dodgers brought baseball to the West Coast, and CPK brought the West Coast to pizza. As two brands with a shared commitment to driving innovation and supporting the L.A. community, we couldn’t think of a better partnership to share the love of pizza and baseball to fans across our hometown of Los Angeles.”

“Creating best-in-class dining at Dodger Stadium is essential for delivering a World Championship-level fan experience for our fans, which is why we’re thrilled to partner with a global brand famous for innovative and iconic California cuisine,” said Corey Norkin, the Dodgers vice president of global partnerships. “We look forward to a long and collaborative relationship with our new partners and know our fans will enjoy the inspiring and delicious food items at CPK’s Dodger Stadium locations.”

Following all regular-season Dodgers home wins, CPK will reward fans with a free 7” Original BBQ Chicken Pizza at select Southern California locations. In addition, CPK will be prominently featured throughout Dodger Stadium touchpoints, including permanent signage on the Left Field Pavilion roof.
