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.

FAQ

Q: What toppings come on California-style pizzas?

A: California-style pizza is defined by its unique range and blends of toppings. Toppings for California pizza include, but are certainly not limited to, ingredients such as kate, beets, avocados, barbecued chicken, and duck.

Q: Who invented California-style pizza?

A: Depending on who you ask, California-style pizza was either invented by Alice Waters or fellow California-based chef Ed LaDou. Both chefs became famous in the early 1980s with their use of fresh, local, and occasionally exotic ingredients to make pizzas that were widely beloved, yet different from any other pizzas available at the time.

Q: Is California Pizza Kitchen the only place that serves California-style pizza?

A: California Pizza Kitchen may be a well-known chain for California-style pizza, but it’s far from the only place that serves it. As shown by a quick search on the Slice app, there are tons of California-style pizzas available from shops in the Golden State and elsewhere in the United States.

Q: What is the crust of a California-style pizza like?

A: The crust of a California pizza is nearly as thin as a New York-style crust but comes in roughly the same size as a Neapolitan pizza. Therefore, when ordering California-style pizza, it may make sense to get one pizza per person, rather than the usual order for other pizza types.
