Welp, 2020 may have been a pretty crazy year, but we’ve still got TONS to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, including family and friends. Oh…and pizza ears!
Speaking of pizza, Disney is celebrating Friendsgiving this year in a collab with chef Roy Choi by teaming up with chefs from five cities across the United States for a fun feature this year: Disney Character Pizza Pies!
The Friendsgiving project includes six limited-edition pizzas inspired by different Disney characters! If you’re lucky enough to live in or near Austin, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, or Phoenix, you can order one of the unique pizza pies for pickup or delivery on November 21st! Thanks to Insider, we got a special look at these super fun pizzas!
In Austin, Texas, you’ll find a Minnie Mouse-inspired pizza at Home Slice Pizza. Chefs Jen Scoville Strickland and Terri Hannifin Buis used bright red sauce and mozzarella “polka dots” to represent Minnie. They even added a parmesan crisp in the shape of a bow to top it off!
Chef Carlo Mirarchi of Roberta’s in Brooklyn, NY, had a blast representing Donald Duck’s feisty personality in his creation! It’s got house-made spicy nduja sausage, bitter Castelfranco radicchio, smooth Taleggio cheese, and lemon zest.
Spicy? Bitter? Smooth? Those certainly sound like a few of the adjectives you could use to describe Donald Duck at any given moment! 😉 You’ll also find a Daisy Duck-inspired pie at Roberta’s! This one’s star ingredient is salsa verde to represent Daisy’s sassy side.
The Goofy pizza pie’s special feature is that it’s loaded with sandwich toppings! Goofy is a fun, quirky character and these toppings totally show that. This pizza is from Philadelphia’s Pizzeria Beddia.
The Pluto-inspired pizza can be found from Chef Chris Bianco of Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix, Arizona! This is a play on a traditional meat-lovers pizza, and features fennel, sausage, pepperoni, and cheese.
And last but not least, the main mouse himself, Mickey’s pizza is quite a classic! This was based on a traditional pepperoni pizza and is served at Jon & Vinny’s in Los Angeles. It includes sausage, onions, fresh mozzarella, aged mozzarella, and caciocavallo. Yum!
This is such a cool way to celebrate Thanksgiving all over the country! We will continue to keep you updated on any fun Disney news we find!
