#CPKPIZZAMEMORIES

If I were a pizza,
my nickname would be:
  • Big Toppa
  • The Hot Mess
  • Home Slice
  • Cheese Louise
My favorite pizza date night:
  • You + Me + Pizza + Our Favorite TV show.
  • Wine (and Pizza) Dine Me.
  • Channeling my inner pizza chef in the kitchen.
  • Buy me pizza and tell me I’m pretty.
Pizza Has Taught Me:
  • Live one slice at a time.
  • Sometimes it’s okay to be cheesy.
  • Tomato sauce actually counts as a vegetable.
  • You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy pizza...and, that’s kind of the same thing.

I moved to Southern California and 1986 and discovered California pizza kitchen. At the time my daughter was going to boarding school in Arizona. I would pick her up at the Burbank airport on a Friday night for her weekend and Drive home to Thousand Oaks. She was always hungry, so we would stop at the Woodland Hills CPK. She's kind of a picky eater and he wasn't s turning her nose up at everything but decided that she would eat the garlic cream fettuccine. Oh boy! That was a hit. We have been eating at CPK ever since and she always remembers those stops at CPK on the way.

Growing up in Wisconsin in the early years, pizza wasn't a "thing" yet. My mother (who is now 96) and I reminisce about how we'd make pizza together in the winter time. This was our mother/daughter activity and I cherish it. I now have my favorite pizza places all over the world, thanks to my Mother who started the whole thing. It's an awesome connection to pizza in so many ways! Now I do it with my sons.

Growing up we did not have a California Pizza Kitchen so once a week mom would purchase the boxed Chef BoyRDee pizza and make the dough put it in a bowl and cover it with a dry dish towel and sit it on the floor register to rise....we would come home from school and knew it was pizza night and it was my brother and my job to put the toppings on it.....we would hit the frig and cut up lunch meat we kept there for sandwiches it was usually bologna then my brother would take green stuffed with pimento olives and slice them and they went on the pizza next we would slice velveeta cheese and the finale would be the parmesean cheese that came in the box....Today it could never compare to any pizzas California Pizza Kitchen makes but back in the 60's Our homemade ingredients pizza tasted mighty good to us.

That was probably one of the best days of my life and this was at least 5 years ago but I still rememeber it like it was yesterday, CPK is so damn good!!

When I was little, my mom would always bring home her leftovers from lunch. It was a little treat for my brother and I every time she came home, I would look through her work bag and find left over boxes. I was a little foodie at a young age. One day, she brought home half of her CPK Pizza. I think it was the Rosemary Potato Pizza. She warmed up a slice for me, and once I took my first bite, it was heavenly. She introduced my love for food, for Pizza. From that first bite, almost every other weekend we were at a CPK looking for the Rosemary Potato Pizza. Pizza brings good family memories for me.

I met my fiancé through pizza. We were at an anime convention in charlotte. The character I was dressed up as loves pizza. So I bought a pizza as a prop! I sat in the hotel lobby eating pizza and ended up offering a slice to a nice guy. A month later we started dating and a year after I proposed and he said yes! <3 Pizza literally got me engaged. Attached is a picture of us on the first day we met, right after eating pizza together!

My family has always gathered together around food; And pizza has been a common staple. Now that I'm an adult, the tradition still holds true and even though we are a continent apart, when we finally get a moment together, pizza becomes a first-choice that erases the time and distance and brings it all back together.

I love your pizza (as frozen pizza goes) and I like that you offer veggie ones and the variety. Okay, my favorite pizza memory is when I was Shift Manager at Mazzio's Pizza and I had just shut off my last oven 5 minutes before closing and I was walking to the door to go ahead and lock up (as we had no customers and a group of 20 square dancers pulled up and wanted pizza. So I let them in and turned on an oven and served them. My waitress was extremely upset with me, but I took some free jukebox tokens and picked out a few country songs and asked them to square dance (as our aisle circled the restaurant) and they did. I left songs on the jukebox and told them to pick out the rest. Not only did they order a lot pizza and pitchers of beer. We all had a blast. We stayed an hour or so past close and my waitress was still fuming until I showed her our tip. Then she was very happy and said she'd never doubt my judgement again and admitted she had a great time. That was so long ago and that waitress, Tracy, passed on at a very young age. I'm glad I have that memory with her. Thanks for letting me share.

Our dear friend Melissa had had a terminal illness, so during her final two years Val and I would often see a movie with Melissa then enjoy a meal together at CPK. During our final meal together, we could see her struggling to eat... but still, after the meal she said she wanted to get together again soon. I had hugged her and said, "God willing, Melissa." Despite her condition we had had so many laughter-filled meals together at CPK. Val and I still see movies and enjoy a meal together at CPK. We remember Melissa and miss our blessed times together there.

First time my youngest son tried pizza was at CPK. He always ordered the Mac n’ Cheese. I husband stepped away to the restroom and I turned to cut my older son’s food and when I turned around my youngest son had a slice of husband’s pizza in each hand. He was taking turns sucking the sauce off each slice. We always laugh about when my husband orders pizza now.

My Dad didn't like pizza, so when he was traveling overnight for work my Mom let us have it for dinner. We didn't have a lot of spare cash, and there were 5 kids in the family so my Mom always opted for the Chef Boyardee Pizza kit in a box from the grocery store. We would take turns making the crust, putting on the sauce, cheese and toppings. I loved when it was my turn to make the crust; the feeling of it in my hands as I was flattening it out on the cookie sheet was marvelous. It's far from the best tasting pizza I've had, but I will always cherish those memories of my brothers and sisters and I putting those pizzas together, especially since there are only four of us now. Every once in a while I buy a kit and make it just for the sake of nostalgia.

Pizza is my go to food ! Especially cpk pizza ! The love I had for the pear and Gorgonzola was out of this world ! The love was so strong I refused to try any other cpk pizza. I went into cpk craving my favorite pizza but unfortunately they don't make it anymore , but all that mean was that I had to find a new favorite , I have no almost tried all of the pizzas cpk makes and I'm completely obsessed. I. A way I'm happy they stopped making the pear and Gorgonzola because I became adventurous and tried things out of my comfort zone !

Veterans Day! My wife and I love CPK, and when I heard CPK was giving away free pizza for veterans we had to go. We went to the local one in Bellevue Washington. The service and pizza was great, but that's not what stood out to me. I don't know if this is how all CPKs handle Veterans Day but this one had a Missing Man Table, front and center. That made me remember how grateful I was to be able to be there.

(I am ordering pizza. I live in a slightly out-of-the-way place, and the address format is a little odd, so we often have trouble with it. However, never before have I had this much trouble.) Operator: “Okay, do you live in a house or a flat?” Me: “Flat. It’s flat [Letter].” Operator: “Okay.” Me: “And the building is C2B.” Operator: “Can you spell that?” Me: “Spell it?” Operator: “Yes.” Me: “… C2B.” Operator: “Spell it, please. Do you mean C for cat?” Me: “Yes, C for cat. C2–” Operator: “2 for umbrella?” Me: “Two, for the number 2.” Operator: “… the number 2?” Me: “Yes. C for cat, two for the number 2, B for boy.” Operator: “All right. So, you live on street C2B.” Me: “C2B is the building. My street is [Street].” Operator: “Can you spell that?” (I proceed to spell the entire street for the operator.) Operator: “All right, so the street is [Street] and the flat is [Flat]. Which building are you in?” Me: “C2B.” Operator: “Can you spell that?”

My dad wanted to do something special for my 14th birthday, so he told me he was going to take me to Disneyland and to dinner. Going to Disneyland was pretty neat, but as a jaded teenage kid, I most definitely did not want him to take me to dinner so that he could have the servers bring me a cake with lots of candles and sing "Happy Birthday!" So, when he asked where I wanted to go for dinner, I said a pizza parlour as I thought that was a safe no-candle and no-song space. So we ordered our pizza and sat down to wait. But sure enough, he had talked with them when I wasn't looking, and when they brought out our pizza, it had candles! Never before or since have I had a birthday pizza covered in candles, but what my dad did for me that day was something so special that I will never forget that moment.

I remeber my dad working for this restaurant called gaslamp in long beach late at night just to get a bit more money for his family. & that same late night one of the managers from the restaurant saw he was tired & havent ate anything, well they had order his a barbeque chicken pizza from there. It was so delicious but he knew that pizza was expensive to actually afford. But the manager said he deserved it & by the time he got home he had save few pieces of pizza for us his kids. Hes is just one of the hardest workers I know.

I will never forget when I first went to Italy and tried a Neapolitan Pizza. The origin of the pizza, the home of the pizza. To see the culture and that the pizza makers take great pride in what they do. The quality of the ingredients and the taste was delightful. Thin crust, puffy crust, and melt in your mouth bite each and every time. People sit at community tables or individual tables and there are lines out the door at opening. Pizza is also considered their light meal and it is eaten for dinner/snack. Ooo la la delish!

In my father's last days at the nursing home, he had severe dementia and unfortunately forgot most of our memories together. In the old days we went to the dog track a lot, and if at home we would watch the stock market while a BBQ Chicken CPK pizza was baking in the oven. In one of his final weeks alive, I started talking about pizza. It was a day his memory was really taking a turn for the worse. He wasn't remembering any family memories. Suddenly, he brought up, "Where is that pizza? The one with the barbeque on top?" I went to my mom's house, cooked one, & brought it up to him at the nursing home. Your BBQ Chicken pizza was one of the last meals I shared with my father. Thank you for making a pizza so delicious my father never forgot it. And thank you for leaving me with this memory of him. Miss you, dad.

For three years in high school, I wore braces. Every month I would go to the orthodontist to have them tightened which was often painful. Thus, my best friend and I would go out for pizza after each time. Pizza would be enough for me to chew with minimum pain and maximum enjoyment. Pizza helped me not dread the days I would get my braces tightened. Of course, when I had them removed, what did I have? You guessed it, pizza!

It was such a treat having my family celebrate my accomplishments and hard work over great pizza.

My favorite pizza memory is: When my son was first born, everyone wanted to see him on Christmas day. My husband's family, my family, my extended family. Everyone had events going on that we were expected to attend with our little guy. By the time we were finally done seeing everyone, we couldn't even comprehend attending Christmas dinner with everyone because we were so drained. We ordered a pizza, watched Christmas movies, split a bottle of wine, and enjoyed the company of our little family. It was by far my fondest Christmas memory and my favorite pizza memory.

Sophomore year in high school, one of my friends was the first in our group to get their license. A couple of us decided to go to the drive-in. It was the first time some of us had been or the first time in a while. For all of us, it was the first time going with friends instead of family. As sophomores in high school, we didn't have a lot of money but we wanted to take food in. We all pitched in our money and together bought a couple of pizzas. I remember it because we'd all exchange our favorite parts of the pizza with someone else.

We used to have to drive to a town 30 minutes away to get pizza when I was growing up. I can remember one time when the four of us (my 2 sisters & brother & I) were waiting for our pizza and a couple at the next table asked if we wanted their leftover pizza. They had at least half a pizza left. We were petrified since we were not supposed to talk to strangers but I wanted that pizza!!! Our parents were at the next table and my oldest sister asked them if we could have it and they said yes and thanked the couple of course!

My husband and I were vacationing in Washington D.C. in 2014 and we were hangry. It was definitely the right time to have pizza! Since I am vegetarian and he is not, we usually half a pizza - my toppings on one side and his toppings on the other side. However this time we thought a whole pizza each would be best. By the time we added a non-alcoholic drink for my husband and a side salad for me our check totaled $46! From then on we always refer to and joke about our 46-dollar pizzas... a meal that at the time, and even now, seemed expensive!

My favorite pizza memory was with my partner. I lived across the country in Ohio, and he lived in New Mexico. I came to New Mexico for a school visit, but ended up staying for the entire weekend. We had 3 first dates over the course 3 days, and every day, we ended up eating pizza! I am not sure why but we were on a pizza kick. We couldn't decide what to do on our last night together. So of course, we ordered a pepperoni pizza, brought it home and watched a movie on the couch. We laughed and ate the night away. It sounds like the simplest thing, but in that moment, I knew I loved him. Now, months later I live in New Mexico, and go to school here. We are still head over heels in love, and whenever we have pizza for dinner we laugh and remember those three pizza-filled nights that brought us together.

When I was a teenager in Ireland, there were no pizza restaurants, pizza was decidedly NOT on the menu. The closest we had was the equivalent of Stouffers French Bread Pizza...which is just not pizza! However, when I was 15, an Italian girl moved to our town and she and I quickly became close friends. One day I went to her home for dinner where her mother, who only spoke Italian, made us the most delicious (and for me, first real) pizza. I was immediately obsessed! Being a generally creative person, who recklessly baked without recipes, to reasonable success, I thought I'd give a go...how hard could it be? merely a crust with tomato and cheese. Unfortunately, I underestimated availability of the right ingredients and my improvisational skills. The end product was a hard unappetizing pastry-like crust with a separated cheddar cheese and tomato topping...it was a sad affair that nobody at home was even remotely interested in sampling. I abandoned the idea of perfecting the recipe, because I hadn't even come close. Several years later, when I moved to America, pizza was to be found everywhere. I was constantly finding my favorite pizza place, only to be replaced by another that was even better. Eventually I even tried my hand at it again....and finally after years, received accolades for my grilled thin crust pizza with eclectic toppings. Still, there is nothing like a big slice of good authentic cheese and tomato pizza...just not mine though!

When my husband and I were dating, he brought me to CPK and insisted I try the Chicken Tequila Pasta. I told him I wasn't a fan of bell peppers, but again insisted, so I did but said he might be eating 2 of them. He said the best thing about that night was seeing me close my eyes as I savored my first bite. Needless to say, he never touched mine!!

Growing up a favorite time for me was, my entire family going out to have pizza night at Red Baron's back in the day. Now that I have a family of my own, we enjoy coming to CPK for our pizza nights because my son loves your Hawaiian kids pizza but being the picky eater he is, he doesn't like the ham. So I always ask for no ham and extra pineapples and he loves it. CPK is known as the Pineapple Pizza Place to my son. As for myself, I can eat at CPK everyday. I always tell my husband, if we ever make it rich, I want a CPK in my house. Thanks for the awesome food and memories.

My mother was a single mom and every Friday night in the 70's, she bought 1 round frozen Tree Tavern pizza. (I can't believe I remember the name. Lol.) It was for her, me and my little sister.

My son and his friends were we were celebrating his birthday there. He was given a chef's coat and he immediately wanted to put it on. They took us inside for a tour in the kitchen and the chef taught him how to toss the pizza dough. He tossed and caught the dough put there was a big tear in the middle and everyone was laughing. The then went to their table and then they made their own dough. We've been going for years to CPK and he always got the Mushroom Pepperoni Sausage. He got lots of each topping and then he tried a stuffed crust. Then the pizzas were taken in to bake. When they came out my son put some Parmesan cheese on his pizza but the lid was loose and then all of the Parmesan cheese came out and made this pile of cheese all over his pizza. his friends then dipped their pizza in the pile and for sure they had plenty of Parmesan cheese. After they were all given ice cream sundae's and he never liked the cherry on top but his BFF loved them so he took it right away before asking cause he knew. After that when he went home he hugged me and said, "Thank you Mommy that was the best day in my life".

My brother came down from California to Illinois to help me with my three girls and to give me emotional support as my husband was ill in the hospital and while I was going thru a miscarriage. While worrying about my mom back in California who was going thru surgery. It was a rough time, with everything happening at once all within the same week. But after my husband was recovered, as well as my mom and all seemed to be ok again, we ordered pizzas and binged watched Lord of the rings. Thinking about that time brings tears to my eyes, so thankful for everything, my family our health. That moment enjoying the pizza, wasn't just about eating tasty pizza, it was the calmness of sitting with my brother and my husband knowing that no matter how terrible life can seem to be, things will eventually calm down. And nothing seems to make it better than family, great pizza, and a movie one can lose themselves in.

Ahh, this is a pizza memory I’ll never forget. When my family moved to the US from Korea when I was 7 we had limited resources. Our go to dinner was always pizza since our financial resources were limited. In Korea the taxes are built into the price, so the first time we got pizza, my dad fought with the Jimmy(pizza store owner) that the price didn’t match what was advertised because of tax. The first time he just got fed up and gave him the pizza for the advertised price with no tax. After a few days in the US my dad finally realized that tax wasn’t baked into the advertised price. He went back to the pizza shop and apologized to the manager profusely and made sure the owner knew that he was not a cheat. Ever since then, he paid tax plus tip and became friends with the owner, who eventually became a family friend. Got pizza from our friend for about twice a week for the next 20 years until Jimmy passed and the store closed. At his memorial, my dad put a dime and a nickel in Jimmy’s pocket. He said if this misunderstanding never happened, I wouldn’t have never known the man I referred to as ‘Uncle Jimmy’.

I guess not everything has to have meat!!

It was absolutely amazing and my favorite thing I've done traveling in Italy! We made the dough from scratch, learned about the process, prepped it to rise and be kneaded, and put it in the oven with all of our favorite toppings (that we picked right out of the garden)! It was incredible!!!

At the mall, they made sicilian pizza that when you ordered they'd pop a piece from an already cooked pie in the oven and bake it again. It just made for a very toasty piece of gooey cheesy pizza, the best.

My favorite pizza memory is seeing my two daughters eating CPK pizza (and mac n cheese) when they were little. I used to work at CPK when I was a teenager for 4 years and LOVED the pizza. The fact that I took my daughters there years later and they loved the food made me so excited. In fact every single year they both pick CPK to eat dinner at on their birthdays. Also, we kind of invented a new pizza. We put the mac and cheese on the cheese pizza and it's a "mac and cheese pizza". Yum!

My most special CPK memory is the day my husband came home from deployment. He had been gone for a year in Afghanistan and we had a brand new baby before he left. When he got off the plane, I told him he could pick anywhere he wanted to eat lunch. Without hesitation, he picked CPK. He said that the barbecue chicken pizza felt like home and that he had missed it the entire time! We went to the town Square location in Las Vegas and I will never forget that special day and the part that CPK played in it! Everytime we go back now, it feels special. I'm including the picture that we took at town square that day- just before going to CPK!

I was on vacation with my sisters. We ate at a wonderful Italian restaurant & I got pizza. It was delicious, so delicious that I took much to big of a bite of piping hot pizza. It was so hot, I had to spit it out onto my plate to avoid burning my entire mouth. As I spit, one of my sisters looked up just then & saw me. We laughed so hard we cried. This was many years ago but we still laugh about it when we eat pizza together.

My husband & I were saving to buy a home, so we got creative with our "date nights" and started making our own pizzas - this one is an artichoke pizza .

I used to go to your original restaurant back in Newport Beach with my mother. We always split the Cesar Salad and Thai pizzas, and poured our hearts out to one another about relationships, my one day soon to be wife, and I remember her smiling so much. She passed away over a decade ago, but CPK is my comfort food to this day. Life has gotten much harder without her, and many of my dreams we used to talk about for me did not come true. Yet, I honestly still feel comforted and smile every time I can afford to take my family out to CPK. Now, my wife and I share the BBQ chicken pizza because that's her bag, and the kids each have their own favorite, but my mom is at the table watching us, smiling and laughing, whether they know it or not. That includes my youngest daughter who now bears my mother's namesake, whom she never met. They would have loved your pizzas together.

I was always used to pizza with Mozzarella. CPK being 1 of my favorite pizzas there was one always in most of the cities where I lived in.. When I moved to St. Louis I was introduced to this pizza that is from this area only. At the time I lived further out of the St. Louis area and my only option in was to order from other companies here. Most of them use something called Povel cheese. UGH!! Soor St. Louis. Anyway I am happy now to say that we are living within 1 mile of a CPK and they have great curbside pickup. And I can walk in I need to.

My best memory I have at CPK is taking my very very picky toddler there for the first. We ordered her a pizza hoping she would eat it. She ate nearly the whole pizza leaving 1 slice. Feeding her is hit or miss so we were ecstatic when she loved it. Since that day we have gone back, and will continue to go back just to watch her eat a whole meal with no fuss! Thanks for the great pizza!

My husband and I met on-line about 20 years ago. We talked on the phone quite a bit and then decided to meet face to face in the lobby of his office for the first time. We lived in different states so it was a big thing. I remember feeling so nervous I thought I would pass out by the time I arrived at the location. We then had pizza for lunch. After, my husband finished his workday and we decided whether I would get back on the train or stay for the weekend. :) We chose stay! The rest is history......

When I was a child in the 1960's, my father worked the 3 PM to 11 PM shift. On Friday nights after work he would stop and pick up a pizza for he and my mother to share. Being a child, I had long been asleep and would miss out on this special treat. But the next morning my parents presented me with 2 slices of cold pizza for breakfast which was the best breakfast a kid could ever want. So I learned very early that pizza=love!

Staff treated as like queens! Food was amazkng! My mom said she has never ever had a pizza that tasty. The manager came to us to hang out and say happy birthday. I think it is going to be an annual tradition for us.

I remember as an 18 year old, a friend and I went for pizza. The waitress took my friends order for a large pizza. She read it back and turned to head to the kitchen. I called to stop her and she asked was there something else? I told her she didn’t get my order. I ordered a large pizza too. We both ate a large pizza each in one sitting that day. She was shocked, but we loved Pizza. I wish I could still eat that way :)

I use to go with my coworkers to a California Pizza Kitchen for lunch or after work in Schaumburg IL. We use to make jokes and our server told us the funniest jokes (after I would order my favorite Magarhetta pizza) while we enjoyed the best food in a fun and comfortable environment. They were always cheesy funny jokes our server told us, like pizza cheesy..and all age appropriate, so much fun everytime we went there. Now when I get frozen pizzas that are California Pizza Kitchen, I always have happy thoughts and my son asks me why I always smile while we eat that kind of pizza.

cpk was always our spot for family dinner when we were all together. i don't have a specific memory but it always makes me think of my dad when i eat there. his favorites were the lettuce wraps and sicilian pizza. he's been gone just over 6 years and i have picked up where he left off as far as eating sicilian pizza goes. the attached photo is from a day about 14 years ago when we were having a family photo taken and went to a cpk in dallas after for dinner.

Every other weekend my siblings and i would be doing laundry at the laundrymat. Next door was a small pizza joint. Since growing up poor with 7 siblings i was the 2nd oldest. When at laundrymat, i would take my siblings next door to get a small tiny pizza (4-6 inches in diameter). Its barely enough for my siblings but i make sure each one of them get a slice. I never got any but it was ok because i know my younger siblings are happy. I finally had my first taste of pizza when i was an adult and move from home. I got to enjoy the deliciousness that my siblings enjoy back then. Its a memory i will never forget. My siblings always tells me how much i sacrafices for them to give them what they wanted. My siblings and i are very blessed to have each others.

The best memory I have is the first time I tried CPK. I fell in love with the freshness, savory flavor combinations and salad I had on the side...that CPK was in Chicago. I moved to a town which did not have the pizza of my dreams, but then low and behold...I could find pies at the grocery store! Since I cannot make it to a brick and mortar establishment all the time, now I can stock my freezer at home! Best memories; 1. Visiting CPK and falling in love. 2. Finding CPK in the grocery freezer section! Thank you for your time.

Eating my first ever really large pizza in the US - tried to hold it up to take a bite, it was too soggy and undercooked - all the toppings and I mean all the toppings slid off onto the plate. I slapped them back on with a knife. Folded the slice into a pocket and shoved it in my mouth ....

Our favorite pizza memory is when I baked a frozen pizza, and my daughter was eager to eat it, so she took a bite after it came out of the oven, and burnt herself! The cheese and sauce fell on her chin leaving a red mark for a while. All she did was laugh about it because of what she had to tell people when they asked what happened!

My best friend (now husband-to-be) LOVES pizza! It's easily his favorite food, and almost always his one request when asked what he'd like for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. On one of our first dates together, we decided to get some pizza. We had been really stressed out due to some struggles his family was going through, but as soon as that pizza was in front of him, his whole face lit up and he couldn't stop smiling! It was such an amazing sight! Pizza has become one of our go-to date activities, and is one of our favorite experiences to enjoy together. We've even considered replacing our wedding cake with a giant pizza!

I remember being a kid and my mom ordering pizza on a night that was stormy. She was babysitting our neighbors and they were so scared. All I could think about is getting the toppings off my pizza and into my mouth without her realizing I wasn't eating any of the crust or bottom. haha

My husband Evan and I met at California Pizza Kitchen! We both were servers there through college until he left for the Navy. We have now been married 7 years and have a beautiful daughter together. We always go back to CPK for our anniversary dinner but sometimes he was deployed on our anniversary. So, he would arrange to have a frozen CPK pizza delivered to me by a friend. So, to say we love pizza/CPK is an understatement!!! It created a beautiful life for us!

Thursday, March 12,-1987. My first unofficial date with my husband was at a make your own pizza place in College Park, MD, I think it was called Ormond's. A group of friends were supposed to go out after a girls' basketball state championship game but they all bailed on us. Not quote ready to go home, we went without then. We had no idea the correct sauce to topping to cheese ratio and the kitchen had to fix it to avoid a raw center. He hugged me good night when he dropped me off later and we haven't been apart since.

I had plans with my mother-in-law & nephews, who I don't get to hang out a lot with. We had decided to take them to a big, fancy event for families with lots of activities. However, when we arrived the venue was overcrowded and there was not enough resources for us to enjoy the event or activities offered. We decided last-minute to go to our local shopping mall (Tempe marketplace). I couldn't have asked for a better evening despite things not going to plan. It was a great memory to sit & watch the nephews enjoy themselves in the splash pad while enjoying CPK pizzas in the beautiful Arizona sunset. Sometimes we just need to slow down & enjoy the people in our lives instead of looking for the next thing to keep each other busy. I will always have this fond lesson & memory in my mind when going to my local CPK.

Was on a date with my now wife and discovered she didn't know how to pizza. She ordered such an odd combination of ingredients it was as if she were an alien. So as I ordered my traditional mushroom pepperoni she has slowly come around to adore the wonders of pizza. She still digs pineapple though - we will give it time.

My husband is extremely finicky! When we first started dating, he told me he didn't even eat pizza...I was so shocked I was speechless. Maybe he was trying to impress me but he actually agreed to go on a date to CPK and I ordered a pizza for us both. Played it safe by ordering a simple one. He tried it and now he loves pizza. I was so happy because pizza is one of my favorite things in the world and now it's a pleasure we can both share. Thanks, CPK!

In 1988 I was having my tenth birthday party. My mom got creative and bought two oversized white and green candles, "1" and "0", that were designed to stand upright on a cake top -- but she put them on a thin crust pizza. After lighting them, she picked up the pizza, they toppled over, and a waxy "1" and "0" melted right into the pizza. One of the crunchiest slices I ever had.

My 3 boys could eat pizza morning, noon, and night. For every special occasion, they ask to eat pizza. My two older boys got Honor Roll and Principals list so they asked to go to CPK to celebrate. My youngest son was a little bit jealous and asked us why he was there since he doesn't get a report card yet. My middle son hugged him and said, "my accomplishment is your accomplishment, we are in it together! We support each other. You help us study. You cheer us on. We celebrate together." It totally warmed my heart and brought a tear to my eye.

Second pregnancy I had severe morning sickness 24/7 for the whole 9 months! There were very few (like 3) foods I could eat without getting sick. One was your amazing Italian chopped salad with garbanzos and extra dressing. I would go get one to eat and take one home! Oh at least twice a week. My daughter turned 17 last week and it's still one of my favorite foods! Nummmy! And your Chicken Garlic pizza isn't bad either!!!

I love those memories of spending time with my mom at the pizza parlor.

My dad was very busy when I was a little girl. He worked full-time to support us, went to night school to get better pay and during the holiday season, worked extra hours to make money for holiday gifts for us. When he was home it was special! My mom would purchase pizza dough and my dad, my sisters and I would make pizza for dinner. This was my mom's one night off from cooking and we had our dad to ourselves! We would top the pizza dough with sauce and cheese and we all couldn't wait to eat steaming hot, delicious pizza. My dad has been gone for 8 years, and it is still one of my favorite childhood memories!

My favorite memory of pizza is of course the California Pizza Kitchen at Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta, Georgia.

My husband and I order pizza Every Friday to celebrate us getting over the work week. He's a Lance corporal with the marines so his days are almost 12 hours long. He goes in at 6:30am everyday and comes home around 5:30 sometimes later. I'm a nanny, so my days are pretty long too. We love pizza. And any time we can get together, so weekends are sacred to us. We have a weekly pizza date, Sometimes we go to a bar and shoot pool for a few hours and come home and order a late night pizza together. Other times we rent movies cuddle up on the couch and eat with a glass of wine or beer. He's the love of my life and I don't know what I would do without him. My favorite pizza memory is our pizza dates Every Friday, every new date we have is my favorite.

When I was a kid, we could never have pizza because my Dad didn't like it. One day, my Mom said she was going to drive and pulled right into a pizza place with a buffet. He was more or less forced to have pizza, or he wouldn't get any dinner that night. He ate it, loved it and the rest is history!! I had CPK for the first time in Las Vegas. My happiest day was when the first location opened in my area on Michigan!! My son and I now go there whenever we can come up with any special occasion to make it happen or just to meet up for dinner. (He's 25 now, after all!) That's my best pizza memory!!

I am a huge pizza fan. My love for pizza started very early. When I was 5 my we adopted a kitten and she was calico coloring. Since she came in a cardboard box and had lots of orange with some black and white made me think of a pizza. We ended up calling her Piizza. Now anytime I eat pizza I think of our spunky family cat.

I was about 14 years old when I went to my first school dance. The gym floor seemed to be the size of an ocean when I walked from where I was standing with my friends over to the girl's side of the dance. Whatever courage I had seemed to have disappeared as I asked one girl to dance. Somehow I got the words out and she said yes. Well one dance led to another and we finally took a time-out to have a slice and a soda. Many years have passed since this pizza memory. I'm sure that most of us remember our teen years and in some ways while our experiences may differ we share the same feeling of awkwardness that are part of those years. No longer a child and still far from being an adult it all seemed so innocent. As I recall it was the best pizza that I ever had. There would be other pizza slices and yes other girls. But you always remember your first.

My then 4 year old son Cameron loves pizza. On one of dinner outings he finished his pizza and said to us. Mom and dad, the dessert part of my stomach is full, the water part of my stomach is full. But the pizza part of my stomach is still wanting more pizza. We had to order another pizza to satisfy his need for more pizza. Needless to say pizza is a recurring dinner option at our home. We are so glad CPK has frozen pizza for every craving on any night. Got to love pizza.

When I was a kid we didn’t have much money so Pizza was a luxury. The only time we got Pizza was when the Pizza truck would come around which wasn’t often. The pizza truck wasn’t dinner, it was a treat. It only came around at night about the same time as Mr. Softee. We always had Dixie cups so Pizza was always our choice and was 50 cents a slice so me and my brother could each get one. I miss those nights as a 5-6 year old when all was right with the world.

Back in high school my friends and I got together one night and had a game night in the upstairs room of my garage. We all put our money together and ordered two of the box deals from pizza that came with a party size pizza, sides and a drink. We ended up staying up all night into the next day gaming and eating pizza, and when it came down to the last piece we did a "winner take all" round, whoever won got it. I didn't end up winning, but the moment was still one of the most memorable and fun ones I've ever had.

My favorite pizza memory was the day I adopted Gus, a pug mix, from a local rescue. My sister was over and we showed him around the house and ordered a pizza while he got to know us. We were chatting in the family room and noticed Gus had wandered off, we were pleased that he was exploring on his own. A short time later we went to check on him, and discovered that he had somehow with his short body jumped on to the dining room table and was finishing off the pizza! When I think of pizza, I think of that great memory of him frantically eating all he could!

I'll never forget my 9th birthday. My mom knew I don't care for birthday cake. So when she came to school to celebrate my birthday with my 4th grade class, she put 10 candles on my pizza!

Over the spring and summer every Friday was CPK night and I would go with friends.

CPk became a place were me and my friends would come together after a long week and forget about the hardships over pizza

I always ordered from the same pizzaria every Friday. One Saturday the delivery guy knocked on my door. I didn't order anything he had mixed up the address. We started talking after that night and we have been together for 11 years. So I guess you could say pizza brought me my boyfriend lol.

I was in my 9th month (38 weeks) and had just returned from my weekly doctor wellness visit. Baby wasnt due for another 2 weeks. Since I didnt want to go home and cook, my husband and I went to CPK in Schaumburg. I remember what I was having - Tostada pizza and Cranberry Cooler and I went into labor!!! My healthy baby boy was in my arms 7 hours later. The pizza brought my baby into this world before time! Yayy!

My mother's favorite food is pizza. When she was in the hospital after a routine surgery, she had to put up with the bland and terrible hospital food. I brought her favorite CPK pizza (with mushrooms) that gave her the biggest smile on her face. A taste of home, a taste of happiness. It made her forget all the problems she was dealing with. All she thought of was the regular Friday's where we would eat dinner and spend time at CPK. That day we had our usual Friday dining, even if it was in a hospital. Every issue went out the window. Nothing but smiles and satisfaction.

My favorite thing in the world is when my Dad makes homemade pizza. Though he's been doing it for a long time, it got really serious when my family did a pizza-making class together in Italy and learned how to make our own dough. He now has a system for making pizzas on the grill. He makes five at a time and they're all different kinds. Every year on my birthday, my dinner is homemade pizza by my Dad. The food is delicious - but the best part is spending time with family all together while we enjoy it. The kitchen is a mess and there's flour just about everywhere, but we enjoy the pizza with the best company. For me, these pizza memories are filled with love, wine, and invaluable family time! It means the world to me.

My mother died when I was a 13. I took over all her duties for the family, cooking, cleaning,helping my brother and sister with school. I had to get a part time job if I wanted anything of my own bc our father couldn't afford it on his income working in a factory. I made dinner 6 nights a week, but every Saturday we would get pizza from our favorite local place, state road pizza. It was the one meal I didn't have to cook. Pizza and salad is still my favorite meal today, because it makes me think of family and even when struggling it would bring us together

After weeks of traveling thru the hinterlands of China with a work buddy who ate only peanutbutter, we arrived at our Shanghai hotel. After clean up we walked out the front door , only to see a sign for California Pizza Kitchen in the same center! Before I could say 'dumpling', he was in the door ordering. It was a great treat to find a slice of home so far away, what a wonderful meal.

My heart was broken when I woke up on the morning of my 10th birthday to 51 inches of snow. The party for that day had to be cancelled and we could not get to the bakery to pick up the cake. The pizza parlor down the street was open since the owners lived above the shop. My family of 3 feasted on pizza and my mom put a birthday candle right in the middle of the pizza. After, we made snow angels in the snow. This was a thrill back in 1961 when parents never played with kids much. My "pizza" birthday was my best birthday ever and what started out as a disappointing day, ended up being the greatest day in my life. The pizza made it festive and fun.

It's a favorite now, but at the time I was livid. We picked up a pizza and decided that before we ate it, the kids should get their jammies on and we should all wash up and get ready to snuggle down with pizza and football (we are bad parents, the kids were eating very late). We got the pizza because we had zero groceries and the weather was bad. so, we all went to our rooms to get changed and in that time, the dog managed to somehow open the pizza box and steal the pizza! He left no trace of it at all. The box even closed over on itself making it look totally untouched. I had no idea as i got out the plates etc until i went to pick up the box and bring it to the coffee table (again, bad parents as we usually do sit at the dining room table, but we were eating in front of the TV because of football). Needless to say, we all looked at the dog who was happily snoozing under the table stuffed like a goose! We were all super hungry and decided to order Chinese - at least he can't open those containers!!

When my husband and I lived in Fort Lauderdale, every Friday before hitting the Miami clubs, we would eat at the California Pizza Kitchen on US-1 between Sunrise and Oakland Park Boulevard. Typically, we had the same server taking care of us. He was so attentive, he was almost clairvoyant, leading us to nickname him "The Machine". No matter how crowded it was, no matter how many people he was serving, he treated us like we were the most important people on the planet. I always ordered the "two in a bowl" soup, split perfectly down the middle. My husband always ordered the BBQ chicken pizza, which I was prone to stealing bits of when he wasn't looking. While we no longer live in Fort Lauderdale, we still enjoy the occasional CPK date night (and I still steal pizza from his plate).

My father took me and my 2 younger brothers to the local pizza joint, Buzzy's, in Annapolis. Large paintings of gangsters stared at us from the walls. We sat in a large room, filled with long picnic tables covered in plastic, red, checkered tablecloths, while an electronic player piano entertained us in the corner and black and white "Three Stooges" episodes played on the wall, sound down....My father got the same thing, everytime, and we loved it: a pitcher of root beer, one light beer for himself, and a large cheese pizza, directly from one large, dark, hole in the wall, where a large gentleman with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, gave us our pizza.....we thought he was magic because we didn't know how he could fit in the hole, and because he made the perfect pizza everytime.....

My favorite memory is my son saying that he didn't like pizza. He was insistent upon this fact, always turning his nose up at it every time we offered it to him. He would eat it, but always begrudgingly. We were always telling him this would change and he'd never believe us. Finally when he was about 7, out of no where when asked what he wanted for dinner one night he said "PIZZA!" When we all gave him confused looks, he told us, "What? It's my favorite food!"

When I first moved to Alaska from New Jersey in 1987, I went to a local pizza joint in Juneau called Bullwinkle's...yes it was a ripoff of Rocky and Bullwinkle. I stepped up to the counter and asked for 2 slices. The guy at the counter looked at me like I had 3 heads and said, "I'm sorry, what?" "I'd like 2 slices, please." I said again. He looked at me, then to his coworker, then back to me, then his coworker said, "did you just ask for 2 slices of pizza? We don't understand." The other guy jumped in just as I was saying "yes" and asked, "why would you only want to order a slice of pizza?" I replied, "why wouldn't I?" Needless to say, there wasn't a single Italian in that joint, either behind the counter or seated. I ended up ordering a whole pie. I wasn't in NJ anymore...

But that did not stop me! I loved the taste of the pizza far more than avoiding the pain. And you know what, I love pizza so much, I'd do it again!

My first time trying a deep dish pizza was actually in Los Angeles! It was my favorite experience because I remember ordering 8 slices not knowing how huge the slices were for me and my boyfriend. We ended up having a contest on who can finish the most pieces and to be honest, I won!

My dad had just passed away from cancer and he had been in the hospital out in Lubbock, Texas. My mom came to stay at the hotel with my two elder siblings and me, and to get us to get out of the hotel and grab some food. It was Halloween 2014, and catering to our families odd sense of humor, mom stopped at a costume shop on the way to get pizza so we'd have costumes and to cheer us up. (Keep in mind that respectively my siblings and I were 24, 27, and 28 - not exactly children.) So as a result we walked into California Pizza Kitchen in Lubbock and ordered our food in cowboy hats and fake mustaches. The best part being that the staff didn't even look phased by our appearance. (They've probably seen it all in a college town.) None of us wanted to stay out so we took it to go, but I'll always remember sitting in our costumes in a hotel room eating really good pizza in the middle of nowhere. It was like we were in some absurd dark comedy but CPK was a tasty highlight. Thanks for being a great and healthier pizza choice that was a great comfort that day. Bit of a weird story but we all love the piz
