A legacy pizza chain is tapping new resources and adding some innovative new menu items, with help from a celebrity baker.

Peter Piper Pizza announced the introduction of new items and affordable “Piper Deals” earlier this year—its 51st in existence.

The 120-unit restaurant brand, based in Phoenix, entered 2024 with new signature cake slices from celebrity baker and Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro, who is helping remake the dessert menu, plus the launch of Dippin’ Dots.

The brand’s Buddy V’s cakes are sold by the slice and available in the following flavors, starting at $9.99 per slice:

  • Vanilla Rainbow: Six layers of rainbow-colored vanilla cake filled high with sweet vanilla icing and covered with rainbow sprinkles.
  • Confetti: Vanilla cake with rainbow sprinkles baked in, filled and iced with velvety vanilla-buttercream confetti icing and rainbow sprinkles.
  • Chocolate Fudge: Buddy’s original chocolate fudge cake filled high with signature homemade chocolate fudge and slathered in chocolate sprinkles.

“I’m so excited to offer some of my all-time favorite cake flavors to Peter Piper Pizza guests,” Valastro said in a statement. “With our proprietary baking and shipping process, we are able to send our cakes to Peter Piper Pizza locations in the Southwest, fresh and delicious! This collaboration further demonstrates my passion for making our delicious desserts available to cake lovers across the country.”

Peter Piper Pizza guests can also enjoy Dippin’ Dots, the original beaded ice cream, available in four flavors: Rainbow Ice, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cotton Candy and Cookies & Cream. A 5-ounce cup sells for $4.99.

“With the launch of these beloved cake and ice cream additions, families have more options for food and fun than ever before,” said Genaro Perez, chief marketing officer at Peter Piper Pizza. “Additionally, we’re launching six new Piper Deals that emphasize affordability with pizza-and-play options that are easy on the wallet — especially important to families after the holidays.”

The six new Piper Deals, including the new Pizza and Wings deal for $27.99, offer an average 15% discount on the regular menu and include special pricing on food and drink combos and pizza-and-play bundles:
