Summer food often involves lighting up the grill and California Pizza Kitchen believes that pizza deserves prime space on those grill grates. The popular restaurant chain has the pizza. Cooks just need to provide the cooking surface.

From the iconic Original BBQ Chicken to a classic Pepperoni, everyone has their favorite CPK Pizza flavor. Fresh from the pizza oven, that first slice, with its perfectly melted cheese and crisp crust, is perfectly delicious.

While the experts at the local CPK restaurant ensure that every pizza which hits the table is perfection, some people prefer to enjoy that slice in the comfort of their own home. For the summer, instead of turning on the oven and heating up the house, California Pizza Kitchen suggests a different cooking method, the grill.

The Grab and Grill Pizza promotion is a reminder that pizza cooked on the grill is delicious. As Chef Paul Pszybylski, VP of Culinary Innovation at CPK said, “Our Grab and Grill pizza promotion is the perfect fusion of convenience, value, flavor and summer fun. While we know the ultimate CPK pizza experience is at our restaurants, our Grab and Grill options just may be the best pizza you’ve ever had at home!”

The Grab and Grill pizza options include: Original BBQ Chicken, Thai Chicken, Mushroom Pepperoni Sausage, Pepperoni, California Veggie, and Five Cheese + Fresh Tomato. The options are classics. Even though the recent return of the Tostada Pizza had much fanfare, these options have been around for awhile.

To be clear, the Grab and Grill pizzas are prepared to order and sold fresh. Once that dough hits the grill, the crisp texture will be superb.

For pizza lovers who have not necessarily grilled pizza before, the cooking instructions are on the box. Also, there is a website where CPK’s Chef Paul explains the method.

This idea of grilled pizza is perfect for summer. While other pizza chains have put BBQ flavors on the pie, the slight smoky flavor from a grill infuses in the dough and adds flavor depth.

In addition, no one wants to turn on an oven during summer. Not only does it add unnecessary heat to the house, but it keeps the cook away from all the outdoor fun. Almost any food can be cooked on a grill. It is time to discover that grills night out is more than burgers and hot dogs.
