COSTA MESA, Calif.--()--With the holiday season around the corner, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is rolling out three new limited time only menu items to celebrate.

Starting November 14, guests can enjoy two new dishes and a specialty cocktail, inspired by festive flavors. Guests who love CPK’s bold and creative pizza flavors will be pleased to see the Neapolitan Burrata Pizza added to the menu, an innovative spin on classic Neapolitan pizza featuring creamy burrata and slow-roasted cherry tomatoes. For guests looking to try something new, the Shaking Beef Pasta offers a hot, savory dish complete with tender pieces of seared filet and a garlic-sesame soy sauce. And since the perfect holiday meal isn’t complete without a specialty cocktail, guests can pair their dishes with CPK’s new Hand-Shaken Espresso Martini.

“CPK is committed to delivering bold and innovative flavors year round. Our holiday menu items bring heartier dishes and classics to the CPK experience,” said Paul Pszybylski, VP of Culinary Innovation. “My personal favorite is our new Shaking Beef with Pasta - its rich flavor paired with a Hand-Shaken Espresso Martini makes the perfect holiday meal.”

The specials will be available to customers through December 31, giving guests a chance to enjoy a holiday treat. Additional details on the limited time holiday items include:

  • Hand-Shaken Espresso Martini: Java House Dark Roast cold brew, Grey Goose vodka, Kahlua coffee liqueur and agave, shaken to smooth perfection.
