In my earlier posts I have already written a lot about California Pizza Kitchen's expertise in preparing traditional Pizzas and giving them a certain twist so as to make them unique in front of conventional ones. So without any further ado I would like to go straight to their latest event that is the above mentioned title.
The theme Around the World in Ten Pizzas emphasizes upon the pizzas that we might not have ever tasted earlier. They are customized as per certain countries taste and ingredients. Food lovers can now indulge in ten lip smackingly delicious pizzas from across the world at one place.
The new menu which showcases pizzas from 10 different countries would be available between 15 October- 15 November 2015 @ California Pizza Kitchen all over India.
Since we are non-vegetarian, all our ordered dishes were the same.
To quench our thirst we ordered 'Malta & Pom', which had Malta oranges, orange juice, pomegranate seeds with a dash of grenadine and a hint of red bull. One can't complain after that !
For appetizers we chose Charmula Fried Fish evenly fried served with lime creme sauce and salad. I liked the crisp coating outside and soft juicy fish.
Next was Lebanese Grill Chicken, needless to say my son ate most of it. Spicy, tender and nice blend of flavours.
Then we went for the pizzas for which we had arrived. Peri Peri Pizza was a traditional crust pizza from South Africa. It's base is filled with mushroom peri peri sauce and the topping had bell peppers, black olives, cottage cheese with fresh cilantro. Peri peri sauce has a reputation of being highly spicy, however I didn't find it as much spicy as expected.
Then we ordered All American Cheese Burger Pizza, which had a wholesome presence of sliced chicken patties and host of freshly sliced veggies with generous amount of cheese.
My vegetarian friend on the other side of the table had ordered Harissa Pizza (kick of garlic marinade sauce with bell peppers, fire roasted chili and cottage cheese) and Frijoles A La Mexicano. Frijoles A La was a crispy crust pizza with spicy bean sauce, red peppers with Mexican chili topped with crispy tortilla chips. Tasted a small portion of the above as I couldn't resist to taste them.
One can't leave CPK before tasting their desserts be it their trademark Tiramisu and Red Velvet Cake. AS they say desserts don't go to your stomach but straight to your heart.
