PALMDALE, Calif., Jan. 6 // PRNewswire // -- RedBrick Pizza Worldwide has announced that its newest pizza crust is made with the acai berry, a fruit known for its health-promoting, antioxidant properties. Using the acai berry in the whole wheat, multigrain artisan crust is unique in the industry, according to RedBrick Pizza's President Jim Minidis.
"We are very excited about the release of this phenomenal pizza - the first ever of its kind in the world," said Minidis. "A typical whole wheat pizza tends to be dry and bland, but RedBrick's whole wheat artisan crust has a unique, flavorful taste because of the combination of the acai berry, 100 percent pure virgin olive oil and multigrains," explained Minidis. Fire-roasted in just three minutes at 1000 degrees in RedBrick ovens, the gourmet pizza is unbelievably moist, yet crunchy.
"We stand behind our claim that RedBrick pizzas are healthier and better for our customers because they have less calories, fat, carbohydrates and sodium than ordinary pizzas," said Minidis. RedBrick's fire-roasted gourmet pizzas offer a number of healthy benefits. The dough is hand rolled fresh each day, and only pure virgin olive oil is used, which is high in monounsaturated fat - the healthy fat. The red sauce contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes. All of the meats used in RedBrick pizzas contain no artificial flavors or additives and are lean and low in sodium. The dressings used in the chopped salads are made with no trans fat, while the fire-roasted croutons are prepared fresh daily with heart-healthy olive oil.
"Whether you are having a family night out or a lunch with coworkers, you are sure to feel healthier and energized after eating RedBrick's alternative to ordinary pizza," said Minidis.
RedBrick Pizza has garnered numerous accolades from trade and business press nationwide. In 2008, Restaurant Business magazine ranked RedBrick Pizza 8th of "The Future 50" fastest-emerging growing chains in America, while it ranked 254th in Entrepreneur Magazine's 2010 Franchise 500.
