Originator of the Down-the-Line Pizza Category Introduces New Pitmaster Pie and Banana Pudding Gelato, Paired with Terrapin Beer Co. Brews
It’s hard to imagine a more fitting Southern cuisine than slow-smoked barbecue. In homage to their Georgian roots, this beloved Southern staple is also the inspiration behind Your Pie’s latest creation in the brand’s seasonal Craft Pie Series. This fall, the down-the-line brick oven pizza franchise is bringing the family BBQ experience to their stores with the new Pitmaster Pie. The series will be offered for a limited time at all Your Pie locations from August 17th through October 25th.
“Your Pie is all about craft, and for this launch, we’re excited to continue on with our tradition of innovation, both in the flavors of specialty pizza and gelato and having the opportunity to partner with another incredible brewery,” said Drew French, founder of Your Pie. “The Southern influences of true American barbecue are a favorite taste among many Americans. We were inspired to incorporate that irresistible smoky flavor into a specialty pizza. Paired with all of the flavors that make barbecue great, it really creates the bold tastes only found in a backyard barbecue—but on a pizza.”
The new Pitmaster Pizza features smoky pulled pork and fire-roasted balsamic onions topped off with house-made coleslaw, tangy BBQ sauce and a zesty ranch drizzle. Your Pie is pairing this new menu item with featured brews from Terrapin Beer Co. Founded in 2002 in Athens, Georgia, Terrapin features year-round beers like the Rye Pale Ale and Hopsecutioner IPA. Other seasonal additions to the Craft Pie Series menu include the Banana Pudding Gelato—a sweet compliment to the kick of the Pitmaster Pie. Made with ripened bananas and laced with a delicate cinnamon rum ripple, the Banana Pudding Gelato is the perfect mashup of Southern classic and Italian tradition.
The Craft Pie Series has been a seasonal feature of the Your Pie menu since French opened the first fast-casual pizza concept in 2008. Since then, they’ve whipped up popular creations like the Slider Pie, a pizza spin on the classic American cheeseburger; the Peach Prosciutto Pizza, which featured fresh peaches, prosciutto and a honey balsamic glaze; and the Fresh Fiesta Pie—a deconstructed take on guacamole.
With the launch of the new Pitmaster Pie, Your Pie will continue to encourage every store to partner up with a local charity of their choice as part of the Ins’pie’ering communities efforts. To make a positive impact on local communities, a portion of craft series profits will be donated back to a local charity.
“We’re excited to continue our ‘InsPIEring Communities’ concept as a compliment to not only this event, but to many of the values central to Your Pie as a whole,” said French. “Franchisees in individual markets will each be partnering with an organization of their choice to donate pizzas and proceeds raised through any Pitmaster Pie sales.”
