California Pizza Kitchen Complaint - Overpriced Bland Food
CHANDLER, ARIZONA -- My friend and I went to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch yesterday. I ordered a plain cheese pizza and she got a thin-crust chicken pesto pizza. My pizza was $9.99 and hers was $12.99. The cheese pizza was ok. The tomato sauce tasted bland, like there was no seasoning. I didn't care for it much. I had a few slices of my friend's pizza and it was delicious. The chicken was perfect and the pesto was flavored well. We got an appetizer of deep fried artichoke hearts that were out of this world. They melted in my mouth. Our waitress was very pleasant and checked back with us several times and made sure our drinks were full. The food is kinda pricey. Both our pizzas were 10 inches round, 6 slices. For that, I could have gone to Barros and gotten a medium cheese pizza that tasted a heck of a lot better. California Pizza Kitchen prides itself on gourmet pizza so maybe cheese was the wrong thing to order. I will have to go back and get something else.
