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.
Last year, John Gilleland and his partners were the first franchisees to sign on with the Pie Five Pizza chain. Since then, the Dallas-based company contracted to open more than 100 additional franchise units in 10 states, with more on the way.

On Monday, October 21, Gilleland will open his second Pie Five in the greater Salt Lake City area, in the Quarry Bend Shopping Center in Sandy, Utah.
Every autumn, Pie Five Pizza’s chef Andy Wittman says he ventures into a nearby pumpkin patch to await the arrival of the Great Pumpkin from the Peanuts comic strip. This year, Andy’s quest provided inspiration for Pie Five’s Pumpkin Patch Pie.
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 Pizza, a subsidiary of Pizza Inn Holdings Inc., will invite furloughed federal government employees with a valid ID to come in for one free pizza at their local Pie Five from October 11 through October 13.

In addition, Pie Five invites members of Congress to come in and pay double, adding that goes for the president, too.
Confucius once said, “Every restaurant’s destiny is pre-ordained by three virtues: location, location, location.”
We found that on the Internet, so it must be true. But in any event, we’re pretty sure there’s wisdom in those words.
