ATLANTA —Schlotzsky’s Austin Eatery is transforming two of its most popular sandwiches into pizzas. The new pies feature crust made from the same sourdough bread on which the company serves its sandwiches and are topped with the identical blend of ingredients as their sandwich counterparts.
The Original Pizza, a new take on Schlotzsky’s Original Sandwich, features sesame seeded sourdough crust stacked with Genoa and cotto salamis, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, black olives, red onion, tomato and the company’s signature sauce.
The Fiesta Chicken Pizza, modeled after Schlotzsky’s Fiesta Chicken Sandwich, includes sesame seeded sourdough crust topped with roasted chicken breast, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, black olives, roasted red peppers, red and green onions, tomato, jalapeño and chipotle mayonnaise.
The new limited-time-only pizzas will be available through Feb. 9, 2020.
“Our new recipes combine tradition with innovation to create a unique take on our most beloved menu items,” said Beto Guajardo, president of Schlotzsky’s. “By transforming our most popular sandwiches into pizzas, guests can enjoy a new savory version of their favorite sandwiches.”
