LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority in innovative,
“California-style” pizzas and creative dining with a California vibe, is
celebrating National Pizza Month this October by bringing back two fan
favorite pizzas: the Roasted Garlic Chicken Pizza and Shrimp Scampi
Pizza.


For their return, the two pizzas have been reimagined with the highest
quality fresh and seasonal ingredients, hearth-baked atop CPK’s
legendary hand-tossed dough. First introduced in 2010, the Roasted
Garlic Chicken Pizza returns with sweet caramelized onions, grilled,
pulled chicken breast, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, slivered scallions
and fresh cracked black pepper. A fan favorite since 2001, the
reinvented Shrimp Scampi Pizza features tender garlic shrimp, housemade
garlic cream sauce, caramelized onions, fresh mozzarella, parmesan and
red chili, topped with fresh wild arugula and finished with wild Greek
oregano.

“We’re the creators of California-style pizza and have always been known
for setting pizza trends with our unique, innovative toppings and flavor
combinations, like the iconic Original BBQ Chicken Pizza we invented in
1985 or our globally inspired pizzas like the Thai Chicken and Jamaican
Jerk. Our Roasted Garlic Chicken and Shrimp Scampi Pizzas are no
exception, which is why they’ve become fan favorites,” said Brian
Sullivan, SVP of Culinary Innovation at California Pizza Kitchen. “So
many of our loyal customers have asked us to bring back these unique
pizzas over the years, so for National Pizza Month we’ve reimagined the
recipes, and amped up the flavor with ingredients like peppery wild
arugula, grilled white-meat chicken, plump, tender shrimp and fragrant
wild Greek oregano that we pull fresh off the stem, all baked on top of
our hand-tossed pizza dough. We invite our guests to join us for a
delicious trip down memory lane, and make some new memories with these
reinvented classics.”

The Shrimp Scampi Pizza will be available through Nov. 2. The Roasted
Garlic Chicken Pizza will become a new, permanent menu item at
participating CPK locations.
