California Pizza Kitchen is Now Serving Healthy Dining Choices

If you are a long time fan of California Pizza Kitchen, their joining the Healthy Dining Program is just one more reason to love them and the delicious menu choices they have to offer.  If you’re new to California Pizza Kitchen, we’d like to introduce you to one of the newest restaurants serving up flavorful Healthy Dining-approved menu choices.  Started in Beverly Hills in 1985 by two former federal prosecutors, this rapidly growing company can now be found in 30 states and 11 countries, as well as in your grocery store.  Despite this growth from a small local restaurant to a nationwide chain, the focus on fresh, high-quality ingredients and innovative choices have remained a priority. 

With 27 dietitian-approved menu choices from California Pizza Kitchen now listed on, we’re sure you’ll find plenty to enjoy.  Here are just a few of my favorites:

  • Roasted Veggie Salad, Half Size – This is not your ordinary salad!  It’s loaded with roasted-to-perfection veggies like eggplant, asparagus and bell peppers, plus artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomato and avocado.  Not only is it full of flavor but also vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber, thanks to all the veggies.  That’s the kind of restaurant nutrition we like!
  • Original BBQ Chicken Pizza on Whole Wheat Crust – If you’re looking for something a little meatier, try this tasty pizza with California Pizza Kitchen’s “legendary” BBQ sauce, gouda, red onion and a whole wheat crust for an added serving of whole grains in your day.
  • Mango Banana Non-Fat Yogurt Smoothie – For days when you just need something light and easy to take on the run, this is a delicious choice.  It has all the tropical flavor you’d want with a boost of bone-building calcium from the non-fat yogurt.
