But if you're looking for something out of the ordinary, then California Pizza Kitchen may just be the answer you were looking for.

You won't find a California Pizza Kitchen in every state yet, but they are located in most larger cities. Often found in a mall, people flock to this california-style cuisine in droves! The atmosphere is good with light and airy decor.

California Pizza Kitchen Menu

CPK offers a good variety of innovative pizzas at a good price. You might think a "gourmet-type" pizza might have a gourmet price, but most CPK's pizza cost around $12-$14 (depending on your location), which is the typical price for a large pizza from Pizza Hut or Papa Johns.

Keep in mind the CPK pizzas are around 10", so a tad smaller then a medium pizza from most other places like Pizza Hut or Dominos.

California Pizza Kitchen Nutrition

The California Pizza Kitchen menu offers some healthy choices including honey wheat and thin crust as well as vegetable pizzas and even vegan options (CPK recommends the Vegetarian with Japanese Eggplant pizza with thin crust and no cheese).

Honey-wheat dough is also an option on CPK's pizzas which is a nice healthy option.

Looking at CPK's nutrition information, which can be found on, we only see calorie information. Here are the calories in a couple of their pizzas. They don't specify the serving size, but we're guessing (again, just guessing) that it's per slice of a 10" inch pizza.

Cheeseburger Pizza - 236 calories
The Original BBQ Chicken PIzza - 175 calories
White Pizza - 177 calories

Not too bad, of course the serving size might be considerably smaller then some of our other comparisons, but if you select a thin crust or honey-wheat dough, you're probably not looking at a very unhealthy pizza. But then again, we're not nutrition experts, just pizza lovers!!
