Frozen Friday: California Pizza Kitchen - Garlic Chicken Pizza

California Pizza Kitchen's frozen Garlic Chicken Pizza features a crispy, thin-crust pizza topped with a bordelaise butter sauce, white chicken cubes, mozzarella cheese, onions, roasted garlic, and parsley for $6.49.

It's fairly quick to cook in the oven (about 10 to 12 minutes) but suffers from a major problem: it's really dry. The crust is like a desert bereft of any oasis (sauce); there's just cheese, chicken, and veggies. There's supposed to be a butter sauce but I guess it blended with the cheese and there was no butter flavor.
The result is a bit like eating really dry crackers with cheese but not as good. CPK's Chicken Garlic Pizza really needs sauce to offset the dryness. I guess more cheese might have done the trick as well.

The chicken was a little dry but relatively plentiful; the main flavor was garlic though.
The Sister felt the pizza was too garlicky but I like garlic. Still, I would have rather had a slice of garlic cheese bread.

One pizza is meant for three people but it's smaller than the box suggests.
