MORRISTOWN, NJ - Villa Italian Kitchen, which opened its first pizzeria in New York City next to the Ed Sullivan Theater in 1964, celebrating 50 years in business this year, has introduced two new Summertime Chicken Barbeque menu items for a limited time. Villa's new BBQ Chicken Pizza and new BBQ Chicken Stromboli join the menu at participating locations. Another exciting addition, guests who visit Villa Italian Kitchen can now supercharge their Mountain Dew® with pomegranate or apple flavorings to create Extreme Pomegranate and Electric Apple! Both delicious beverages can be ordered at any participating Villa location.
Mountain Dew® is one of the most popular citrus-flavored beverages and now with the addition of pomegranate or apple flavorings at Villa Italian Kitchen, becomes all different, an Extreme Dew!
"Our new BBQ Chicken Pizza and Stromboli are both so delicious, you won't know which to order," said Paula Doyle, Vice President of marketing, Villa. "And the new supercharged Mountain Dew® beverages Extreme Pomegranate and Electric Apple are right in time for great summer thirst quenchers!"
Villa Italian Kitchen is known for their Neapolitan and pan pizzas handmade with fresh dough, 100% whole milk mozzarella and homemade sauce to make their New York style Italian pizza. Now, guests can try Villa's newest summertime favorite, BBQ Chicken Pizza bursting with flavors of tangy sweet barbecue sauce and red onions with chicken on top.
Villa's famous handmade Stromboli is a favorite menu item and is now made with BBQ chicken for a delicious taste of summer! Stromboli is a form of Italian "pizza imbottito," or "stuffed pizza," in which various fillings are sandwiched between layers of fresh made dough and baked in an oven until golden brown. The result is a delicious hot classic Villa Stromboli.
Guests can choose to make their BBQ Chicken Pizza slice or Stromboli into a value meal with one side and a drink for a special price at any participating Villa Italian Kitchen location.
Besides Villa's new Mountain Dew® beverages and their famous handmade Stromboli and pizza both now with BBQ Chicken, the menu includes Italian Pastas, Salads and Entrees which make for a delicious lunch or dinner. Villa offers large to-go orders and catering, perfect for pizza lovers, the family or events.
