There is one pizza and pasta chain that has been working so hard this year. They started the year with the launch of almost an entirely new menu – new pizza and pasta dishes as well as rice meals (yes, Filipinos love rice); then they held their Pizza War competition to encourage and challenge their own pizza chefs to come up with fresh combinations and now, they are at it again, declaring August 15 and 16 as their National Pizza Days!
California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) has been one of my favorite pizza chains. Their culinary team is relentless in dishing out innovative and adventurous California style pizza – combining sunshine, the hip vibe and creative flavor toss-ups. It is really cool for them to declare their own National Pizza Days (and by the way, it is now on its 6th year!).
So what will happen on August 15 and 16? On these days, guests who visit any of CPK’s six (6) locations in Metro Manila can avail of their BUY 1, GET 1 Free Pizza Promotion. The guests can choose any one of the five (5) New and Exclusive Premium pizza flavors.
