Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Who needs a vacation when you’ve got a luau on your pizza? Pie Five Pizza Co., the nation’s leading fast casual pizza brand, invites guests to hula on over to try their latest limited time pie creation, the Maui Wowwi.
Starting today, Pie Five is offering its own slice of tropical paradise on a crust. The new Maui Wowwi pizza comes on an Artisan Thin crust and is topped with tangy BBQ sauce, savory ham, smoky bacon, crisp red onions, and sweet pineapple, then finished with fresh cilantro. Customers can catch island fever for a limited time because Maui Wowwi pizza is only available until June 7th.

The unique Pie Five model allows patrons to top their pizzas any way they want for under $8.00, cooked in 145 seconds in a custom-designed, state-of-the-art oven. There are millions of possible pizza combinations Pie Five customers can create with four crusts (including artisan thin, classic pan, Neapolitan whole grain and gluten-free), seven sauces and 28 fresh toppings. Additionally, they can add one of Pie Five’s freshly-tossed hand-made salads served in a baked pizza dough bowl or a decadent home-baked brownie or cookie pie.
