DALLAS, Oct. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Every year around this time, Pie Five Pizza's culinary savant, Chef Andy Wittman, ventures into a nearby pumpkin patch to eagerly anticipate the arrival of the Great Pumpkin.
A photo accompanying this release is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/prs/?pkgid=21513 Let's be honest: Andy's not the sharpest knife in the drawer. But he's a maestro in the kitchen; and this year, Andy's lonesome vigils provided inspiration for Pie Five's latest dessert sensation: the Pumpkin Patch Pie. This delicious blend of fresh pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove arrives at your nearest Pie Five Pizza today, October 14 th, but will only be available through December 1 st. So don't dilly dally. "I don't care what anybody says, the Great Pumpkin is real. I saw it on TV," said Wittman, after leaving his therapist's office. "Regardless, I know everyone will believe in my Pumpkin Patch Pie. It's a delicious blend of cake and cookie made from real pumpkin and lots of other fresh ingredients. It's the perfect complement to a great personalized pizza at Pie Five this fall." At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of handcrafted pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices prepared in less than five minutes on one of four crusts. The rapidly growing chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas in stylish environments without the wait. "Andy's a sweet boy, but I'm not sure where his Great Pumpkin obsession came from," whispered Granny Wittman out of the corner of her mouth. "But listen here, when he straps on his apron, he's a freaking genius. Don't tell him I said this, but his Pumpkin Patch Pie is so delicious, I just may steal the recipe for Thanksgiving."
PizzaRev sees lots of opportunity in the so-called better pizza niche and has even garnered an investment by Buffalo Wild Wings. Can the small fast-casual chain succeed when up against big pizza companies like Domino's, Pizza Hut and Papa John's?
