Pie Five Pizza, a fast-casual pizza chain with locations in about a dozen states, has reinvented its Margherita Pizza in honor of Maggie Fox, the company’s longest-serving employee. The Old World Maggie is a personalized take on Fox’s favorite combination of Pie Five flavors and toppings.

Topped with fresh mozzarella, olive oil, grape tomatoes, Parmesan and fresh basil, the Old World Maggie is available in thin-crust and traditional-crust versions for a limited time—June 6-26—for with the promo code “OLDMAGGIE” at all traditional Pie Five locations. It’s offered for delivery and dine-in.

Fox is senior manager of training and operations services for RAVE Restaurant Group, Pie Five’s parent company. She has been with RAVE for 12 years, and the pizza that she inspired is crafted to take long-time guests back to their roots while providing a fresh take on a traditional favorite.

“For me, this pizza is a true memory of home, bursting with the robust flavors of an original Margherita pizza,” Fox said. “I’m honored to represent the story behind Old World Maggie and am excited for guests to have the chance to enjoy it. ”

Aaron Archuleta, Pie Five’s director of operations, said the Old World Maggie “isn’t like your ordinary pizza, but one inspired by a true story. We saw an opportunity to reinvent a current menu item with a contemporary recipe update to make it unique to the Pie Five brand. We’re proud to offer our customers a signature dish created with fresh and sophisticated ingredients that represent part of the Pie Five family history.”
