The BBQ pizza masterpiece arrives at Pie Five on June 30, but like a fleeting summer romance, it won’t last forever.

“Customers are going to love the down-home flavor of this pizza that brings out the taste of summer fun in every bite,” said Patty Scheibmeir, vice president of R&D and product innovation for Pie Five Pizza Co.  “The Carolina Golden recipe is a unique flavor profile that is perfect this time of the year with its smoky pork and tangy BBQ sauce combination.”

To compliment every zesty bite and bring out the pizza’s complex flavor profile, Pie Five recommends pairing the Carolina Golden with a Coca-Cola Freestyle Cherry Vanilla Coke, available at participating locations. Like every Pie Five creation, the Carolina Golden BBQ Pie is smoking with fresh, bold flavor packaged perfectly in a delicious personal pizza for one low price, prepped and ready to enjoy in less than five minutes.  It is only available until August 9.

There are millions of possible pizza combinations Pie Five customers can create with four crusts (including artisan thin, classic pan, whole grain Neapolitan and gluten-free), seven sauces and 28 fresh toppings.
