Pie Five Pizza Brings Home the Bacon

Pie Five Pizza’s chef Andy Wittman says he never knows what he’s going to find when he ventures out into his garden.

A month or so ago, he found a pig. After shooing it away, Wittman had a vision—and it smelled a lot like bacon.

That’s how Pie Five’s newest limited-time specialty pizza, the Pig in the Garden, was born.

The pizza is made with roasted mushrooms, a red and green pepper medley, onions, pesto alfredo sauce, and bacon. The Pig in the Garden will be available at Pie Five Pizza locations from October 28 through December 8.

The blend of pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove will be available at Pie Five Pizza from October 14 to December 1.

Pie Five Spreads Like Wildfire Through DFW Area
