On those busy days when it feels like I have a hundred items on my to-lists and not enough hours in the day, dinner often sneaks up on me. As much as I want to just swing through a local drive-thru after I pick up the kids from school, I try my best to choose healthier options, even if those meals don’t have accompanying toys. For those near meltdown moments, Pie Five is my go-to spot. My kids love the pie, and I get healthy ingredients in their bellies. Especially when you have gluten-free kiddos to contend with…it’s my saving grace.
If you’re one of those people who likes something new each time you visit a restaurant, Pie Five will become your new favorite destination. There are 17 locations in the DFW metroplex and they just added one in Euless for the mid-cities peeps.
For me, the fun thing about Pie Five is that you have choices….lots of choices. You can trust the pie gods and choose one of the pre-made pizzas like Chicken Carbonara or Pesto Chicken Alfredo, or you can become a pie god and create a pie yourself. Pie Five has more than 28 fresh toppings, 7 savory sauces and 4 made-from-scratch crusts making your pie possibilities are endless. And if you have a food allergy, they serve a gluten-free crusts as well. Pies bake in 145 seconds in a custom-designed state-of-the-art oven.
Pizzas aren’t the only thing you can order at Pie Five. If you’re like me and trying to watch those pesky carbs, than a fresh salad is available too. Just like their pizza, you can order a signature bowl of green or make a salad with your favorite ingredients. And if you’re feeling a little wild, you can order a side salad….served in their famous pizza crust bowl. Salad in a big bowl of dough is my kind of dinner.
And if you have a salad for dinner, than you have plenty of calories left for dessert like a decadent home-baked brownie or a cookie. I always save room for cookies or brown or both. And remember, when they kids make it, they eat it. And there’s no clean up for you.
Yep, everyone wins.
