MOD Pizza Debuts New Fall Pizza Named After a Star Employee

The Jeffrey Pizza, Roasted Apple Salad, and Coffee Shake debut on September 3.

MOD Pizza today announced the addition of the latest “Flash MOD” seasonal menu items: the Jeffrey pizza, Roasted Apple Salad, and a limited-edition Coffee Shake. The items are available at all MOD locations across the U.S. through November 4, 2019.

The Jeffrey, inspired by a very special member of the MOD Squad, is a perfect blend of sweet and spice. With an olive oil base, the Jeffrey features fresh, house-roasted apple, combined with Canadian bacon, fresh arugula, shredded mozzarella, crumbled gorgonzola and is finished with a swirl of sweet balsamic fig glaze.

The Roasted Apple Salad encapsulates the crisp flavors of fall, combining mixed greens with house-roasted apples, Canadian bacon, crumbled gorgonzola, toasted pumpkin seeds, tossed together with MOD’s balsamic vinaigrette.

“We’re roasting the apples with olive oil, rosemary and a pinch of salt, enhancing the sweet, tangy flavor and really bringing out the flavors on the pizza and salad,” said Brian Figler, culinary manager at MOD. “However, the hidden ingredient behind our fall pizza is the awesome individual for which it’s named – Jeffrey – a beloved and long-time member of our MOD Squad. Jeffrey was one of our first MOD Squad members with IDD (Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities) and over his six years with us, he’s become a shining example of our culture of inclusivity and an amazing contributor to the MOD experience – bringing lots of sweetness and a little spice every day!”

Jeffrey, MOD Pizza’s star employee of six years, is honored by a namesake pizza this fall.
