It's Baaaack! The Great Pumpkin Spice Cake Returns to Pie Five Pizza

Limited-Time Dessert Offering Begins Today at Trend-Setting Restaurants Nationwide

DALLAS - Oct. 27, 2014 // PRNewswire // - It's that time of year again, and Chef Andy Wittman is over the moon about his latest sighting of the Great Pumpkin. Pie Five Pizza guests will soon share in his delight.

Last year, Pie Five's gastronomic guru was struck with a vision that could have only been inspired by the Great Pumpkin himself. Perfectly blended with Libby's pumpkin filling, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, and topped with a drizzle of spiced pumpkin frosting, the Pumpkin Spice Cake is Wittman's delectable – and very personal – ode to a beloved fall icon.

"I knew he wouldn't let me down this year, I just knew it. The Great Pumpkin rises again!" shouted Wittman. "Thanks to him, my delicious combination of cake and cookie made from real pumpkin and baked fresh daily has become the perfect complement to a great personalized pizza at Pie Five each fall. I believe in my Pumpkin Spice Cake and so will you!"

But all good things must come to an end. This limited-time offering is available at all Pie Five restaurants nationwide only until Nov. 30. So fellow pumpkin fanatics shouldn't dilly-dally.

This seasonal dessert delicacy is available by the slice, or customers may purchase the entire dessert. But please, don't put them in trick-or-treaters' bags. That might get messy.

At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of handcrafted personal pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices, all for one low price. Add one of our hand-made salads and desserts, prepared fresh every day, and the entire meal will be prepared in less than five minutes. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas in stylish environments without the wait.

"Andy's masterpiece was such a hit last year that we didn't bother arguing over his obsession with the Great Pumpkin this time. My Andy has a hero just like any other well-balanced young man, plain and simple," said Granny Wittman staunchly. "Not to mention, his Pumpkin Spice Cake has even become a Thanksgiving tradition in our house. If there's one thing I've learned from my own experience, you can't argue with a genius in the kitchen. That, and a little bit of crazy can be a tasty thing!"

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 The company has 26 locations in eight states (Florida, Kansas, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia) with more than 200 announced franchise units under contract in 14 states and Washington, DC.
