I eat a lot. A whole lot of f Thai food that is. I have an obsession with Thai dishes. If I was on death row for committing a capital crime, my last meal would be Kra-pow gai. That's basil leaf chicken for non kon-thais (thai people)
A long time ago my ex and I would always giggle whenever we heard people say "Can we order the FAT Thai. I know sometimes the menu reads FAT thai, but really you should pronounce it phut thai or pad thai.
I head on over to CPK because I was craving their Gorgonzola Salad Pizza thing. I saw thing because it’s not really a traditional pizza. You know the pizza with read sauce, copious amounts of fresh mozzarella and toppings. This pizza is more like a crispy pita bread with with Gorgonzoala and thinly sliced pears, yes pears, as in the fruit.
When I first had this salad a couple of years back, I didn’t like it but now, out of nowhere, I got this intense craving for it. What’s going on right?
The taste of this pizza salad is powerful. Think blue cheese mixed it with some arugula. You know the flavor is bold. I keep thinking it would taste better with caramelized onions and some fresh spinach. When I order it again i’ll pair it with a chardonnay or a pale ale beer to reall contrast the full spectrum of savory but not salty things.
I again ordered the starter egg rolls, this time trying the mediterranean roll and just wow. Thinly sliced mushrooms served over a slightly fermented marinara sauce. It was such a good pairing. I put some of that red sauce on Gorgonzola pizza and made it into a more traditional styled pizza.
5/5 —outstanding salad pizza thing.
