Seattle-based MOD Pizza announced Wednesday its new “Tailgate Trio,” or a list of three special menu items that will be available through the college football bowl season.

Each week through January 2, a new pizza will be featured as the $8 “MVP of the Week” in the MOD Rewards app or online. Later, from January 3 to January 8, in time for the college football championship, all three Tailgate Trio pizzas will be featured at the special $8 price. The three new pizzas are said to be inspired by some of the most popular and craveable game day appetizers, like buffalo wings, bacon jalapeño poppers and spinach artichoke dip.

“The Tailgate Trio are some of the most craveable pizzas we’ve ever developed and feature all the comforts and bold flavors of a football party or tailgate,” says Scott Uehlein, VP of culinary excellence and innovation at MOD. “We hope our customers will enjoy these pizzas at home or on the go as they root on their favorite football teams in their postseason games.”

The Tailgate Trio pizzas include:

  • Buffalo Chicken Pizza ($8 MVP of the Week, December 11-17): A base of Frank’s RedHot sauce is topped with chicken and shredded mozzarella, cheddar and gorgonzola, finished with another swirl of Frank’s RedHot Original Buffalo Wings Sauce and served with a side of ranch.
  • Bacon Jalapeño Popper Pizza ($8 MVP of the Week, December 18-26): A white sauce base topped with bacon, jalapeños, freshly shredded mozzarella, cheddar, asiago and Parmesan, and finished with a swirl of ranch.
  • Spinach Artichoke Dip Pizza ($8 MVP of the Week, December 27-January 2): A white sauce base topped with artichokes, fresh spinach, chopped garlic, oregano and shredded mozzarella, asiago and feta.

MOD Pizza ranks as the seventh-largest pizza chain in the U.S., claiming over 500 restaurants and more than $600 million in annual system-wide sales. Its name, MOD Pizza, is derived from the phrase “made-on-demand” pizza.
