Airports aren't exactly known for their great food options so I usually end up at some typical fast food chain with a greasy burger. Smaller airport are usually worse since they tend to have fewer options, but the small Maui airport (OGG) in Kahului had a California Pizza Kitchen (or CPK as it's called) so I gave it a try.

It's a quick serve version of the popular sit down CPK restaurant and had a decent selection of the most popular pizzas (as well as sandwiches and salads) on the menu. They didn't have my favorite Chipotle Chicken pizza so I decided to go with a simple pepperoni pizza instead.

I wasn't expecting much, figured it would be some sort of re-heated mini pizza, but it turns out they made it and cooked it right then (just took a few minutes) and I had a good size and hot pizza for $11.29 (if you weren't super hungry two people could split this) and a $3 iced tea.

Considering the size of the pizza, the overall quality, and the fact that I was in an airport (where you get ripped off at every turn) the price seemed very fair.

The pizza was delicious, cheesy, and perfectly cooked. I wasn't even that hungry, just wanted some food to keep me going but I ended up finishing it all because it was just that good. Well done CPK. Well done.
