DALLAS, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- What's better than building your own perfect pizza using only the freshest ingredients, baked to order in less than five minutes? How about adding a little avocado to the mix?
For the second summer in a row, Pie Five Pizza is introducing a specialty pie showcasing the modest fruit that packs a punch when it comes to flavor and nutrition. Pie Five's Chicken Bacon-Cado Pie is expertly crafted with grilled chicken, crispy bacon, olive oil, minced garlic, fresh mozzarella cheese, vine-ripened tomatoes and creamy avocado slices – all piled high on whole grain crust. It's a pizza sensation unlike any other, and it's available at all 20 Pie Five locations nationwide beginning Monday, June 16. "Avocados are a wholesome and delicious complement to our handcrafted pizzas, and I always love building new recipes around them," Pie Five Chef Andy Wittman said. "Avocados are a lot like bacon – they go great with anything. Especially each other!" In addition to the Chicken Bacon-Cado Pie, guests are encouraged to add avocados to any of Pie Five's signature and personalized pizzas. Pie Five's Circle of Crust members may also indulge in a special offer from June 16 – 22. If you think you're crust-worthy, visit piefivepizza.com/circle-of-crust/ or text p5 and your email address to 73757. But all good things must come to an end, even for the timeless avocado. This limited-time offering is only available until July 27. At Pie Five, guests can create endless combinations of handcrafted pizzas or select from a variety of specialty pies prepared in less than five minutes on one of four crusts, all for one low price. The trend-setting 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?
