California Pizza was started in 2012 and spread around different cities in Pakistan. They have 10 Branches in Karachi in various areas of Karachi.
Karachi is known as the “city of lights,” and the lights and parties always stand side by side. So how can you not try California Pizza when you live in Karachi? Make a plan now, visit their branch or order their treats and experience the flavors that remind you of sitting in California and partying.
California pizza offers various flavors, and with every flavor, your tongue will thank you for a great experience. From traditional to modern tastes, they offer many innovative flavors. They also provide a blend of both. So no one is left behind if someone wants to experience both.
They have a Cheese Lover Pizza loaded with cheese for people who adore cheese. For vegetarians, California Pizza offers Veggie Lover Pizza which is topped with a lot of vegetables. For something traditional, they offer Seekh Kebab Pizza. And if you want something creamy, they provide Creamy Tikka Pizza and Ranch Pizza. So as I said earlier, no one will be left behind at California Pizza.
They also provide an innovative “Kebab Popper Pizza,” which looks like a flower with petals packed with kebabs. And the center is like a typical pizza. It also comes in a variety of flavors which are named after cities.
They offer 4 different types of pizzas: deep pan, crunchy thin, stuffed crust, and kebab popper. So choose what suits you. California Pizza offers a variety of flavors with different toppings, which desire you to return for more.
As a meat lover, my favorite options are Maryland Delight, topped with Jamaican chicken, capsicum, red jalapenos, Chaska sauce, and cheese. Meanwhile, both Florida Feast and Chicken Fajita are topped with onions, black olives, Ranch sauce, and cheese. They both are a little creamy because of the sauces on the top. And I prefer stuffed crust.
Let me tell you if you don’t know how to eat a pizza. Dip it in the Dip sauce and dig it into your mouth. And for a perfect combination, have a cold drink with it.
