California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), Bangalore

Being a pizza fan, the news of opening of California Pizza Kitchen outlet in Indiranagar Bangalore was music to my ears. CPK as fondly referred by the fans has achieved a cult status for their wood-fired pizzas across the US.

About CPK India:

The India franchise of California Pizza KitchenΒ  is undertaken by JSM Corporation, who are also responsible for bringing Hard Rock Cafe and Shiro to India with 2 outlets in Bangalore.

As soon as I entered my eyes lit up to see the huge wood fired oven πŸ™‚ Now I know why they taste so good πŸ˜€

Overpowered by hunger I asked for anything which takes the least time to prepare –Β  Herb Onion Focaccia with Checca Appetizer – FIRST MISTAKE !!

The bread was well prepared, but it never gelled with the Checca aka chopped tomatos with seasoning and Zero Salt – Big Turn-Off

Once the hunger pangs were under control, sanity took over and I actually saw the menu πŸ™‚

The classic Italian Tomato &Β  Basil Pizza and Margarita are the benchmarks for how well a simple pizza can taste.

The Italian Tomato and Basil Pizza outshined every other pizza we ordered and was undoubtedly MY FAVORITE and BEST CPK Offered me πŸ™‚

The Veg Pizzas are absolutely good, not recommended for the non-veg versions.
