It's National Pizza Day once again! California Pizza Kitchen will be giving a free pizza when you order a regular pizza. BUY 1 TAKE 1 for short, y'all! (See related post: CPK Pizza Wars 2015)

California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority in innovative, “California-style” pizzas and creative dining with a California vibe, is celebrating National Pizza Day this August 15 and 16 by bringing back their successful annual promo campaign.On these days, guests who visit any of CPK’s eight locations can enjoy buy-one-get-one-free  pizza, choosing  among  an  exclusive  selection  of  five premium pizzas  that embody the spirit  of California Creativity that the brand is famous for.

Prior the National Pizza Day, we had the privilege to try out the pizzas of CPK which would also be included in their promo. (Thank you so much for the invite!)

Here are the dishes that we tried at CPK:
Mango Watermelon Shake and Peach Frozen Lemonade. Both are really good and sweet.

Spinach Artichoke. Definitely one of my favorites from CPK. The dip is really good.

Moroccan-Spiced Chicken. Roasted squash, dates, avocado, toasted almonds, beets, chopped egg and cranberries. Tossed in honey Dijon vinaigrette. Fresh and flavorful, tastes great.

And now, presenting their featured pizzas:
Anchovies and Goat Cheese. This is the winner for this year's CPK Pizza Wars. There is a good contrast of the saltiness from the anchovies and sweetness from the caramelized apples. 

Garlic Chicken. Mozzarella cheese, parmesan, yellow onion slices, pulled chicken and roasted garlic. Tastes just right. There are a lot of onions (which I like, on my part), and a good balance with the chicken. 

Hawaiian Pepperoni Pizza. Say aloha to the combination of rustic and spicy pepperoni, pineapples and Mozzarella.They use fresh rather than canned pineapples on their pizza. I like that their pineapples are largely cut. 

Salami and Bacon. A meat lover’s pizza with Mozzarella cheese, red and yellow onion slices, salami and Canadian bacon. Soft and tasty. Flavorful.

Mixed Vegetarian. Light and healthy with Mozzarella cheese, red onions, green peppers, cherry tomatoes, jicama and sweet white corn. Topped with parmesan and basil chiffonade. Tastes good. There's a good mix of ingredients on the pizza.

Traditional Cheese. It's like having four cheese pizza. You can never go wrong with Traditional cheese.Tastes good.

Tried everything and all are good!

Desserts and Tea:
Red Velvet Cookie Sundae. Red velvet cookies layered with vanilla ice cream and chocolate fudge. I didn't notice the chocolate fudge but I was really happy with the whipped cream. The cookies and ice cream were complimenting each other well.

Salted Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce. Dark chocolate slice sprinkled with Kosher salt and candied walnuts. I love the contrast between the salt and the sweetness of the chocolate cake. Very soft, and the chocolate was really good, it's indulging! 

Zen Tazo Hot Tea. Green tea with mint and lemongrass. Had their hot tea after a satiating dinner. *burp* Good in aiding digestion.
