LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) today announced that the restaurant’s popular Cauliflower Pizza Crust is now available in a smaller, seven-inch size made just for CPKids Meals and CPK’s Lunch Duos. CPK became the first national restaurant brand to offer Cauliflower Pizza Crust when it introduced the full-size option in January 2018. The veggie-based crust, which has fast become a favorite among diners, has fewer carbs than CPK’s traditional hand-tossed pizza dough, is made with gluten-free ingredients*, and is a delicious way for guests to sneak in extra veggies when enjoying their favorite CPK pizzas.
CPKids, Powered by Cauliflower
CPK takes pride in offering a variety of kid-friendly dishes that are made with the same high-quality, creative ingredients as the rest of the menu. The addition of Cauliflower Pizza Crust means that kids can now enjoy their favorite CPK pizza with an added bonus of veggie fuel that parents can feel great about.
“The reception to our Cauliflower Pizza Crust has been incredible, and we are so proud to be able to now offer this trend-setting innovation as a part of our CPKids menu,” said Brian Sullivan, SVP of Culinary Innovation at CPK. “As a parent myself, I know that trying to get kids to eat vegetables can be a real challenge when all they want to eat is pizza. This delicious new veggie-based crust is a win-win!”
For guests aged 10 years and younger, CPKids meals include a choice of fountain beverage, lemonade, apple juice, milk or chocolate milk.
A New Take On The “Power Lunch”
Lunch Duos offer CPK guests the opportunity to pair lunch-sized versions of a favorite pizza or sandwich with a soup or salad, creating more than 80 possible combinations. With the addition of the new lunch-size Cauliflower Pizza Crust, guests looking for a quick yet satisfying lunch have even more options, with the same great value. Lunch Duos are available at participating locations Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Cauliflower Pizza Crust can be ordered on any CPKids or Lunch Duo pizza in place of classic hand-tossed dough for an additional $1.50.
