A month or so ago, he found a pig.
After shooing it away with a hearty 'Woo Pig Sooey!,' Chef Andy had a vision. And it smelled a lot like bacon.
The next thing you know, Pie Five's newest limited-time specialty pizza – the "Pig in the Garden" – was born.
This delectable creation includes a cornucopia of fresh treats from Chef Andy's garden, including roasted mushrooms, red and green pepper medley, fresh onions, pesto alfredo sauce and crispy bacon. The Pig in the Garden arrives at your nearest Pie Five Pizza on Monday, October 28th, but will only be available through December 8th, so don't get hog-tied and miss out.
"Chef Andy doesn't like it when animals get into his garden, but in this case, he didn't seem to mind so much," said Wittman's faithful gardener, Hal. "After he went around checking to make sure his precious vegetables and spices weren't harmed, he just kept muttering to himself 'bacon, bacon, bacon...' I think the Pig in the Garden pizza could be his best specialty creation yet."
