Dewey’s Pizza Debuts The Smashing Pumpkin Pizza Just In Time For Fall
Dewey's Pizza Introduces Seasonal Fall Flavors with a Unique and "Smashing" Twist
Dewey’s Pizza announces the launch of a new seasonal pizza, Smashing Pumpkin, and the return of their fan-favorite Harvest salad on Tuesday, September 19. The two seasonal offerings bring a unique sweet and savory combination to the Dewey’s line up, celebrating popular fall flavors. The Smashing Pumpkin pizza is available through Halloween (October 31) at all Dewey’s Pizza locations while the Harvest salad will be available through the end of the year.
Inspired by “Pumpkin Spice Latte mania” and increasing trends of savory pumpkin food items, the Smashing Pumpkin is sure to please foodies and adventurous eaters alike. The Smashing Pumpkin starts with a housemade whipped pumpkin ricotta base and then topped with mozzarella, crumbled Italian sausage, roasted shallots, and toasted pumpkin seeds.
“The Smashing Pumpkin is the ultimate fall pizza with its sweet, salty and savory ingredient combination,” said David Igel, head of Product Innovation and creator of the Smashing Pumpkin. “We’ve been perfecting this recipe for over a year. The unique flavor of the base brings balanced undertones of sage and honey alongside the star ingredient, pumpkin.”
Dewey’s continues to push the envelope when it comes to flavor profiles, and what may surprise guests is that naming their creations can require just as much innovation. Harmoniously blending multiple pumpkin elements, and The Smashing Pumpkins band being on Dewey’s original playlist, helped to shape the creative direction. What the team enjoyed most about the iconic name was the “smashing” - in this instance - as a descriptive word for the remarkable flavor. Smashing Pumpkin was an instant fit for this seasonal release.
For the ultimate Smashing Pumpkin experience, the pizza is best enjoyed fresh out of the oven with Dewey’s dine-in service. Guests can order the Smashing Pumpkin or any Dewey’s menu item for pickup by calling their local Dewey’s or ordering online at deweypizza.com.
Dewey’s Harvest salad, launching the same day, features field greens, toasted pumpkin seeds, figs, Boursin cheese, applewood smoked bacon and Dewey’s housemade apple cider vinaigrette. Due to its popularity, Dewey’s has an extended run-time on the Harvest salad to appeal to fans.
