Starting May 29 and running for the rest of 2024, pizza fans can choose between two separate The Fresh Market pizza bundles with either a 12-inch or 16-inch pie.

The Fresh Market has added to its fresh food lineup authentic Neapolitan-style Hot and Fresh Pizza, which, according to the regional grocer, was created to surpass the pizzas offered by America’s best restaurant chains. Appropriate for lunch, dinner or an anytime snack, the convenient pizza features quality fresh ingredients such as crushed Italian tomatoes and mozzarella cheese atop a crisp golden crust made with Neapolitan flour. The mozzarella cheese is sourced from the famed BelGioioso brand, while the tomatoes are grown in the fertile volcanic soils near Mt. Vesuvius and subtly seasoned with salt.

The new Hot and Fresh Pizza line also includes meaty Hot Honey Pepperoni and Classic Pepperoni, as well as meat-free Cheese, Ensalada, Margherita and Pepe Fromage, offering a flavor for every palate. Each flavor comes in two affordable sizes: 12 inches (starting at $7.99), designed for one or two people, and 16 inches (starting at $12.99), created for sharing with friends and family.

“When our skilled chefs set out to craft an authentic Italian pizza, they honored the time-honored Neapolitan traditions with a singular focus on quality and freshness,” noted Giorgio Bianchetti, The Fresh Market’s chief merchandising officer. “Their passion has culminated in a pizza that not only meets but exceeds expectations. We’re thrilled to invite our valued guests to savor this exceptional Hot & Fresh pizza, meticulously prepared with the finest fresh ingredients, right here at The Fresh Market.”

In a blind taste test against Domino’s, America’s biggest pizza chain, 61% of the 502 respondents preferred the taste of The Fresh Market pepperoni pizza over Domino’s pepperoni pizza.

“The introduction of the Hot & Fresh Pizza line at The Fresh Market is far more than just a new addition to our menu, it marks the continuation of our passion for culinary innovation and our dedication to catering to the varied tastes of our customers," added Bianchetti. "This initiative is a clear reflection of our commitment to excellence in quality, taste and customer satisfaction, fulfilling our promise to consistently offer exciting and delicious options. It is the enthusiasm of our guests for gourmet experiences that motivates us to exceed expectations and launch new offerings that make The Fresh Market not just a store, but a destination for food lovers everywhere.”
