Fuel the Family with California Pizza Kitchen's Cauliflower Pizza Crust, Now Available in a Smaller Size for CPKids Meals and Lunch Duo Pizzas


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
. 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.

"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.
