House-roasted asparagus makes a comeback for springtime
MOD Pizza today launched its latest seasonal pizza – the Crosby – in all of its stores across the US. The Crosby combines springtime favorite, asparagus, with MOD’s house-made red sauce, mild sausage and shredded mozzarella, finished with a swirl of fig balsamic glaze and sprinkle of sea salt. The Crosby will be available through July 10, 2017.
“The roasted asparagus delivers an earthy flavor, and pairs beautifully with the mild fennel flavor in the sausage. The Balsamic fig glaze finish gives the zing of vinegar and the sweetness of fig,” said Brian Figler, MOD’s Culinary Manager. “Not only is this pizza tasty, but asparagus is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, and is a great addition to any pizza or salad. We’ll continue to rotate our topping options to offer new choices to our vegetable lovers each season.”
Along with roasted asparagus, MOD enhanced its topping choices for spring with two new vegetables: fresh grated carrots and roasted broccoli. MOD now roasts four vegetables daily which can be added to any pizza or salad – asparagus, corn, broccoli and garlic.
MOD currently has over 200 locations in 20 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin, as well as five locations in the UK.
