Eat Like Our Future President!

We don’t know who our next President will be yet, but that won’t stop us from creating a pizza that our next Leader will love!

As the National Conventions have begun, we have created two new pizzas to celebrate the road to that big night in November. One pizza to represent Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, and the other to represent Republican nominee Donald Trump.

In order to do this, we did a little research to learn more about our candidates. Earlier this year, Clinton wrote an article herself for Thrillist about her favorite restaurants in New York. One of those was Gianelli Sausage, where she enjoys a hot sausage, pepper, and onion sandwich. Using this information, Executive Chef Demetrio Zavala created the Hillary Clinton Pizza – a pie topped with spicy sausage, sweet onions, basil ricotta, and roasted peppers!

We even learned from Vocativ that pizza is the fast food item Clinton spent the most money on. The article is even titled “Hillary’ Clinton’s Campaign Runs on Pizza!

Equally interesting are the facts we learned about Trump. In addition to learning his favorite movie and candy in Us Weekly’s article “25 Things You Didn’t Know About Donald Trump,” we learned his opinions on pizza. Believe it or not, Trump doesn’t eat regular pizza dough. He scrapes all of his toppings off of the crust and eats them!

We also learned from various sources that Donald loves steak and potato au gratin. So, Chef constructed an innovative pie that we think would be perfect for the Republican candidate.

The Donald Trump pizza is made with a potato au gratin crust, rather than the classic pizza dough! The pie also comes with truffle, pickled mustard seeds, tarragon, black pepper creme fraiche, and steak tartare.

The Clinton and Trump pizzas are $20 and $22 respectively and will be available through Election Night (November 8th).
