California Pizza Kitchen today announced the BBQ “Don’t Call Me Chicken” Pizza, a plant-based pizza now available for vegetarians and flexitarians alike.

Starting today, guests can enjoy the BBQ sauce, smoked Gouda, red onions and fresh cilantro with the 100 percent plant-powered chicken substitute at any of CPK’s 155 corporate-owned restaurants across the United States and Canada.

The new menu offering represents CPK’s ongoing commitment to “California Health” innovation and a long-standing spirit of adapting to changing consumer tastes and needs.

“We’re thrilled to introduce this new option for guests who are flexitarian, looking to cut down on meat or just want to try a fresh twist on our classic pizza,” says Brian Sullivan, Executive Head Chef and SVP of Culinary Innovation at CPK. “Our BBQ Chicken Pizza has been the cornerstone of our California-style menu since our first restaurant opened 35 years ago, and now we’re proud to bring the pizza that put us on the map to an even broader consumer subset.”
