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.

“I don’t care what anybody says, the Great Pumpkin is real. I saw it on TV,” says Wittman, jokingly. “Regardless, I know everyone will believe in my Pumpkin Patch Pie.  It’s a delicious blend of cake and cookie made from real pumpkin and lots of other fresh ingredients. It’s the perfect complement to a great personalized pizza at Pie Five this fall.”

At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices prepared in less than five minutes on one of four crusts. Pie Five has been named a 2013 Top 50 Restaurant Brand of the Year, a 2012 Hot Concepts winner by Nation’s Restaurant News, and one of 10 Hot New Restaurant Chains from Established Brands by Forbes.com.
