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.
