Red Bank, N.J., May 16, 2011 — Cono Italiano, Inc., the exclusive license holder for the North American Distribution and Manufacturing rights for “Pizza Cono”, a one-of-a-kind, drip-free, cone shaped pizza made from proprietary dough, is pleased to announce that Food Network has featured the pizza cone on their website FoodNetwork.com and in a recent segment of Unwrapped called “Crazy Containers”.
Unwrapped takes viewers on tours of factories and other food-related locations to uncover the behind-the-scenes details of classic American foods and how they are prepared. The focus of this particular episode was on common foods showcased in unique ways. The Pizza Cono, with its innovative composition, was chosen to be featured on the show.
The Unwrapped segment put Cono Italiano’s traditional 2.5 oz pizza cone to the test, filling it with low fat mozzarella cheese and sauce before it was baked in a special carousel oven designed by Pizza Hands. The Pizza Cono passed the Unwrapped test with flying colors, wowing the host and viewers with its versatility, variety of mouth-watering food combinations, and its ability to be easily consumed while on-the-go in a drip-free manner.
“Pizza does not have to be a flat experience and Cono Italiano, Inc. is changing the game by serving it in a delicious, drip-free cone,” said the producers of Food Network’s Unwrapped program.
