What is California Pizza?

Yes, California-style pizza is a thing, and it’s spectacular. In the early 1980s, California chefs like Ed LaDou and Alice Waters gave birth to a new pizza style when they topped their pizzas with local and fresh ingredients to create unique and delicious pies.

California pizzas can feature ingredients like beets, kale, cauliflower, avocados, pâté, and other toppings that you won't find on most pizzeria menus. They're also personal-sized, which means you should order at least one California pizza per person in your group.
