Solon, Ohio-based California Pizza Kitchen (cpkfrozen.com), owned by Nestlé USA, offers a unique twist on its signature thin crust with two on-trend varieties built on a new flaky, croissant inspired-crust. Created in collaboration with Mike’s Hot Honey, the Uncured Pepperoni & Hot Honey pie features uncured pepperoni and mozzarella over a zesty marinara sauce. A packet of Mike’s Hot Honey can be drizzled over the top for added flavor. The Bacon & Caramelized Onion variety is topped with smoked bacon, caramelized onion, roasted garlic and mozzarella over a creamy brie sauce. Each 10.8-ounce pizza is expected to retail for around $10.91.
