California Pizza Kitchen Pizza Wars 2016

June 27, 2016
At California Pizza Kitchen, they believe that making pizza is not just a job, it is a passion. CPK is known for creating innovative artisanal pizzas but their passion goes beyond the actual output. They care about the story behind the curated pizzas they are serving, they acknowledge the inspiration behind every creation, and they give importance to the talent that paved way for diners to enjoy high quality pizzas one can only get at California Pizza Kitchen.

With this, an annual pizza-making competition for their in-house chefs called Pizza Wars is conducted to challenge their pizza makers to take their talent and passion to the next level.
