“We wanted to reimagine the traditional pie with a pizza-fied twist for a turn-key meal before the turkey.”
American Pecan Promotion Board
.…on coming up with an innovative holiday way to crunch some pecans, just in time for Thanksgiving.
Pecans aren’t just for the pecan pie this Thanksgiving, according to—who else?—the American Pecan Promotion Board. Based in Fort Worth, the board was founded last year and operates under the oversight of the USDA.
They obviously rolled up their sleeves and put on their thinking caps in the last year, because they’ve come up with the idea for the pizza delicacy above. Now they want you to try it—along with a pecan pie that goes with it.
“We know that the pecan pie is a staple for so many at the Thanksgiving table, but with the tremendous versatility of pecans we wanted to reimagine the traditional pie with a pizza-fied twist for a turn-key meal before the turkey,” Ott said in a statement.
Working with New Jersey-based Tony Baloney’s Brands, the APPB is promoting a pecan pizza pie & pecan pie combo two-pack through the Goldbelly.com ecommerce site through Thanksgiving.
