According to Dave Schy, Figaro’s director of new concepts and product development, company officials spent nearly a year trying to create the pizza they had in mind but feel their final product is a true homage to the New York-style pizza loved by people the world over.
“Every region of the country has its own signature pizza and we wanted to introduce Figaro’s customers to one of these unique tastes,” Schy says. “The pieces are larger than average, one-sixth of a pie, and are drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with oregano, Italian seasoning, and Parmesan-Romano cheese to give some spice and kick. Though the NY Style Pizza is totally different than anything else on the Figaro’s menu, test audiences have responded quite positively.”
