Mamma Mia! Pie Five Pizza Unveils Another Delicioso Masterpiece - The Meatball Ricotta Pie

Trend-setting fast-casual pizza chain showcases the flavors of Italy for a limited time only.

DALLAS - Sept. 2, 2014 // PRNewswire // - When the time came to create his latest limited-time sensation, Pie Five Pizza Chef Andy Wittman turned to a true Renaissance man – his beloved and slightly cantankerous great-uncle Luigi.

Luigi, you see, is a true Italian, with tomato sauce coursing through his veins. So when Andy and Uncle Luigi decided to collaborate, the results were molto buona!

Today, Pie Five introduces their Meatball Ricotta Pie, a masterful combination of smoked provolone and mozzarella blend, zesty, all-natural and organic marinara sauce, topped with hand-pinched ricotta cheese and authentic Italian style meatballs and fresh, hand-cut red and green peppers. It's the perfect blend of authentic Italian fixings that would make the Godfather himself beg for seconds.

"My Uncle Luigi is a legend in the motherland, as much for his colorful language as his classic family recipes. But when it comes to cooking, he's a gastronomic genius," said Wittman. "Our new Meatball Ricotta Pie is a gift of culinary amore, from our family to yours, steeped in rich Italian heritage and crafted specialmente for Pie Five's guests."

This is the first time the rapidly growing fast-casual pizza chain has introduced this new take on an Italian tradition, and Wittman said he expects it to become an instant favorite. But all good things must come to an end, capisce? This limited time offering is available at all Pie Five restaurants nationwide only until Oct. 12.

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 stylish environments without the wait.

Pie Five Pizza has been named among Fast Casual's 2014 Top 15 "Movers & Shakers," a 2012 Hot Concepts winner by Nation's Restaurant News and one of "10 Hot New Restaurant Chains from Established Brands" by With the Frederick opening, the company now has 21 locations in eight states (Florida, Kansas, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington, DC), with more than 200 announced franchise units under contract in 12 states and Washington, DC.
