Mind Blown

Agency: Made


Global restaurant brand California Pizza Kitchen (“CPK”) has partnered with Made, a marketing agency that specializes in brand transformation, to launch “Mind Blown,” CPK’s most comprehensive campaign to date, spotlighting the surprisingly awesome flavor of Cauliflower Pizza Crust.
California Pizza Kitchen has a long history of culinary innovation since its founding in Beverly Hills, Calif. in 1985. Known for introducing the world to California-style pizza in which creative flavors, ingredients, regions and cultures collide, CPK created menu items such as the Original BBQ Chicken and Thai Chicken pizzas that spurred culinary trends. Now, CPK and Made have teamed to celebrate one of CPK’s latest pizza innovations, Cauliflower Pizza Crust, with a recently launched integrated ad campaign including video, out-of-home, digital and supporting media that highlight the delicious flavor of cauliflower pizza crust made from the unlikely yet versatile vegetable. California Pizza Kitchen was the first national restaurant brand to introduce Cauliflower Pizza Crust in 2018, offering a flavorful, veggie-based crust option suitable for gluten-free diets as well as those simply looking to add more vegetables to their diet. Cauliflower Pizza Crust is available for dine-in, take out, delivery and Take and Bake Pizzas, the brand’s latest offering.
