Pie Five Pizza Brings the Heat with Pie-Ferno Pizza

Spicy Sriracha marinara sauce, flaming banana peppers, jalapenos and crushed red peppers create a "flavor explosion."

The Pie-Ferno is "definitely not for the faint of heart," says a Pie Five Pizza Co. executive.

Pie Five Pizza Co. is ready to help its guests feel the heat.

Beginning Tuesday, March 28, the fast casual restaurant known for its customizable pizzas is heating things up with its newest limited-time creation – The Pie-Ferno Pizza. Guests looking to put some punch in their lunch (or dinner) will love this new spicy sensation. 

The Pie-Ferno is a flavor explosion featuring spicy Sriracha marinara, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, zesty pepperoni and flaming banana peppers. As if that’s not hot enough, it’s topped off with jalapeños and crushed red peppers. It’s available on one of Pie Five’s made-from-scratch crusts including Crispy Thin, Classic Pan, Traditional Italian and Gluten-Free.

“Our new Pie-Ferno Pizza is definitely not for the faint of heart, but if you crave the fire, you’ll absolutely love it,” said Patty Scheibmeir, Vice President of R&D and Product Innovation for Pie Five Pizza Co. “The bold mix of tangy Sriracha, along with the heat of banana peppers, jalapeños and red peppers, make this pizza perfect for the heat seeker. It’s one of the boldest recipes you’ll ever find in a pizza.”

Get it while it’s hot. The Pie-Ferno Pizza is only available until May 14.

Pie Five’s fast casual concept allows guests to completely customize their own, personal pizza from a selection of more than 40 fresh toppings, seven savory sauces and four made-from-scratch crusts. Pie Five also offers guests 10 signature pizzas, all taste tested to perfection by the inventor of stuffed-crust pizza herself, Patty Scheibmeir. Complement each meal with a freshly tossed side salad or basket of warm, cheesy Breadstix!
