Pie Five Gives Guests the Red Velvet Treatment

Chef Andy Wittman has done it again.

 

Pie Five Pizza's culinary guru locked himself in his kitchen, whipped out all his favorite ingredients and created a new dessert.

 

Today, customers of the rapidly growing fast-casual pizza concept will have their first chance to try in his Red Velvet Pie, a rich devil's food cake layered with sweet cream cheese icing.

 

"Sure, I'll admit it. I've got a sweet tooth," Wittman says. "But the good news is that Pie Five guests are the ones that benefit from it. And I've gotta tell you; the Red Velvet Pie may be my most scrumptious dessert creation yet."

 

Each slice of Red Velvet Pie is just $1.59. Or yield to temptation and grab a whole pie for $9.99.

But all good things must come to an end, eventually. This limited time offering is only around till March 9.

 

Pie Five has been named one of "10 Hot New Restaurant Chains from Established Brands" by Forbes.com.

 

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 all for one low price. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas in environments without the wait.

 

Pie Five has 13 locations in Texas, two each in Kansas and Utah, and one each in North Carolina and Florida. More than 150 announced franchise units are currently under contract in Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington, DC.
