Pie Five Pizza Brings the Zing with Return of Hatch Chile PieAs if you needed another reason to visit your local Pie Five Pizza restaurant, the trend-setting chain is appealing to your spicy side by bringing back its popular Hatch Chile Pie.

But you’d better not dilly dally.  The seasonal favorite loaded with Southwestern flavor will only be available from August 19th through September 29th.

Back by popular demand, the Hatch Chile Pie features a delicious array of chicken, Hatch chiles, red onions, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses and a spicy red pepper sauce.  It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, and a whole lot of delicious.

“Hatch chiles have developed a fanatical following thanks to their signature flavor, and our customers loved our Hatch Chile Pie last year,” said Pie Five Chef Andy Wittman.  “They keep asking when we’re bringing it back, and I’m happy to say the answer is now!”

Pie Five has been named a 2013 Top 50 Restaurant Brand of the Year, a 2012 Hot Concepts winner by Nation’s Restaurant News, and one of “10 Hot New Restaurant Chains from Established Brands” by Forbes.com.
