We went to California Pizza Kitchen on our last night in Frisco, with our daughter and her family. We didn't get underway until later in the evening, and we had to wait a short time to be seated.

The menu says: In the beginning there was pizza...

We call it our canvas and the art is in our toppings. First there was the BBQ Chicken. Then came Thai Chicken, BLT and Peking Duck. Then Vegetarian and Jamaican Jerk Chicken. And for the traditionalists, Mushroom, Pepperioni and Sausage.

Since we opened our first California Pizza Kitchen in 1985, we have been playing with this simple, yet classic dish. Our goal is to translate America's favorite flavor's and tastes onto a great pizza crust. The result has been a complete redefinition of the traditional concept of pizza.

Favorite Dish: Their menu features hearth-baked pizzas. There is a special menu for the kids.

Bob had a half Waldorf salad for $7.29 (pictured). The other three adults, had two regular pizzas - the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza ($10.49) and Five Cheese Pizza ($8.99). The BBQ pizza had barbecue sauce, smoked Gouda and Mozzarella cheese, sliced red onions and cilantro. To tell the truth, I didn't really care for either of the pizzas. I would have rather had one like the kids had.

Iced tea and Dr. Pepper were $2.19, and peach iced tea was $2.79.

In addition to pizzas, they also have salads, soups and sandwiches, and of course (at a hefty price) desserts. For instance one of us (don't remember which) had the Caramel Pecan Cheesecake for $5.99 and I had a Caramel Fudge Sundae for $6.99 for dessert.

The bill before tax was $57.19 + $4.72 tax.
