    Powerful Performance – California Pizza Kitchen

          An interview with Brian Sullivan…


“The Wood Stone ovens at California Pizza Kitchen are the centerpieces of our restaurants. We have an open display kitchen and when you walk into CPK, the first thing you see is that beautiful oven.. fire roaring, and it tells you that there is something special about this restaurant.

All of our pizzas are cooked out of that oven and pizza is our middle name, so its very important to us. And we utilize it for many other prep items as well. We cook vegetables, we roast meats, we roast fish, I mean, it’s just an integral part of what we do.

Depending on the size of the oven, we can cook up to 24 to 27 pizzas and the cooks are just rotating the pizzas and it typically takes us about 5-7 minutes to cook the pizza so the ovens are extremely productive.

The amount of production that we get through these ovens is absolutely amazing. The flow-through is phenomenal and no matter how busy we are, and we have restaurants that are extremely busy all across the country, the ovens perform. At max. They are just an amazing piece of equipment.”
