Established in 1985 by a couple of attorneys, California Pizza Kitchen is now popular all over the world (including South Korea and the UAE!). The secret: thin-crust, wood-fired pizzas with scads of interesting, internationally-inspired toppings. Favorite "flavors" include Buffalo chicken, pear and gorgonzola, mango tandoori chicken, Jamaican jerk, California club and carne asada. Additionally, CPK restaurants serve eclectic appetizers, entree salads and made-to-order pastas, as well as memorable desserts such as red velvet cake and sticky toffee pudding. CPK has locations in Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe and Scottsdale as well. Find the one nearest you. Lunch and dinner daily. $-$$
