At agritourism farm festivals, attendees often look for food and snacks they can carry around rather than sit at a picnic table. MOD Pizza just introduced a new LTO food item that could be an excellent option to consider. They call it a handheld 'Pocket Pie.'
Their Pocket Pies are folded small pizzas. MOD offers three varieties:
The Pocket Pies are priced at $7.99 - $9.56 depending on the location in the U.S. and $12.99 in Canada. They will be available through early June.
These pizza Pocket Pies are definitely a better solution than asking people to walk around with a slice of pizza. They are similar to a Calzone, the difference being they're smaller and not sealed, more open like a taco.
In a sense, MOD's Pocket Pies are a variation of a popular handheld at many southern agritourism farms, the fruit hand pie. Fruit hand pies were inspired by Latino empanadas that include savory proteins rather than fruit fillings.
In a sense, MOD Pizza is introducing a variation of an empanada to North America, a pizza empanada.
