After shooing it away with a hearty 'Woo Pig Sooey!,' Chef Andy had a vision. And it smelled a lot like bacon. The next thing you know, Pie Five's newest limited-time specialty pizza – the "Pig in the Garden" – was born. This delectable creation includes a cornucopia of fresh treats from Chef Andy's garden, including roasted mushrooms, red and green pepper medley, fresh onions, pesto alfredo sauce and crispy bacon. The Pig in the Garden arrives at your nearest Pie Five Pizza on Monday, October 28 th, but will only be available through December 8 th, so don't get hog-tied and miss out. "Chef Andy doesn't like it when animals get into his garden, but in this case, he didn't seem to mind so much," said Wittman's faithful gardener, Hal. "After he went around checking to make sure his precious vegetables and spices weren't harmed, he just kept muttering to himself 'bacon, bacon, bacon...' I think the Pig in the Garden pizza could be his best specialty creation yet." 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.
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?
