Savory Syracuse Sausage, Fresh Rustic Tomato Sauce Add Flavor to CiCi's New Pie
COPPELL, Texas, Sept. 9 // PRNewswire // -- CiCi's Pizza announces that they have introduced The Rustic Pizza, a thin, rectangular, flat-bread crust, topped with fresh rustic tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and savory Syracuse style sausage. This new pie is cut into squares for serving and topped with CiCi's signature Parmesan Oregano shake. Having tested in several markets with resounding positive feedback from guests, and notably women, the new Rustic pizza joins 17 different signature pizzas on CiCi's buffet line - all for five bucks and change. The addition of The Rustic on CiCi's endless buffet deepens the variety of guests' choices in high-quality ingredients and fresh flavors. CiCi's will be working with radio stations across the country to introduce the new product nationally.
"If the Rustic was anymore Italian, we would have called it "Tony" with its rich flavor and traditional Italian toppings," said Kyle Smith, V.P. of Operations. "This addition is about giving guests unique, craveable flavor, available exclusively at CiCi's all for an unbelievable price. We are excited to expand the buffet variety which already features 17 different pizza choices, pasta, salad and desserts - or simply create your own pizza of choice."
