California Pizza Kitchen Debuts New Seafood Cioppino As Part Of 2022 Summer Menu


California Pizza Kitchen celebrates the warmer weather with the debut of a new summer inspired menu that features premium seafood dishes like the new Seafood Cioppino, a flavor-forward, tomato-based seafood stew created on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, and returning fan-favorites like the brand’s California Fields Salad, made with watermelon, local strawberries and California grown pistachios.

Looking to add an extra bit of summer flair to its thoughtfully crafted beverage menu, CPK is also introducing a variety of refreshing summer drinks, including the new Summer Fruit Sangria and Sparkling Watermelon Cooler at participating locations.

Here’s a closer look at CPK’s summer inspired menu offerings:


  • California Fields Salad: Fresh watermelon, strawberries and baby greens topped with Feta, fresh basil, and California pistachios and drizzled with housemade Champagne vinaigrette.

Entrée Dishes

  • Seafood Cioppino: California Pizza Kitchen’s take on the Italian classic. Blue mussels, calamari, white fish, bay scallops, and shrimp, all in a white wine tomato broth with fennel, garlic, and fresh basil. Served with grilled baguette.
  • Salmon with Pan-Roasted Summer Vegetables: North Atlantic salmon roasted on a cedar plank in California Pizza Kitchen’s hearth oven and served with fingerling potatoes, seasonal cherry tomatoes, charred onions, and bell peppers with garlic, capers, red chili, and fresh Italian parsley.


  • Strawberry Shortcake: A shortcake biscuit piled high with seasonal strawberries, whipped cream, and housemade candied lemon zest. CPK suggests pairing it with Vanilla Häagen-Dazs ice cream.

Signature Beverages

  • Summer Fruit Sangria: A blend of Rosé, watermelon and basil-infused Grey Goose Vodka with fresh strawberries, watermelon, and mint.
  • Sparkling Watermelon Cooler: A blend of watermelon puree, lime, Monin watermelon, and sparkling water.

You can find the CPK’s summer inspired menu offerings at participating locations nationwide for a limited time.
