RedBrick Pizza Offers Hot, Healthy Solution for Calorie Counters

PALMDALE, CA--(Marketwire - January 21, 2010) - RedBrick Pizza Worldwide has announced that its small gourmet cheese pizza is a hot, healthy solution for anyone who is watching their weight and counting calories -- or trying to maintain their New Year's resolution to shed some pounds.

"Our recently compiled nutritional information shows our fire-roasted gourmet small cheese pizza is a mere 400 calories," said RedBrick Pizza's President Jim Minidis. "This is well in line with per meal calorie guidelines that national weight-loss programs propose," Minidis added.

"RedBrick pizzas have less calories, fat, carbohydrates and sodium than ordinary pizzas making them a healthier alternative for the calorie-conscious," said Minidis. The 400-calorie RedBrick cheese pizza uses all-natural Suprema mozzarella. The artisan dough is hand rolled fresh each day, and only pure virgin olive oil is used, which is high in monounsaturated fat -- the healthy fat. The red sauce contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes. Each gourmet pizza is fire roasted at 1000 degrees in just three minutes in special RedBrick ovens resulting in a pizza full of intense flavors that is healthier for the consumer.

RedBrick Pizza recently released the world's first artisan crust of its kind made with the açai berry, heart-healthy olive oil and multigrains. The açai berry is a fruit known for its health-promoting, antioxidant properties. In addition to the new açai berry whole wheat pizza crust, RedBrick offers its popular Rustica crust, which is a traditional Neopolitan-style crispy thin crust. Two favorites among RedBrick's gourmet offerings are the pepperoni and the garlic chicken. The pepperoni is made with all natural Suprema mozzarella and lean, thinner cuts of pepperoni, while the garlic chicken gourmet favorite has a bolder mix of toppings including fire-roasted chicken, garlic, white sauce and tasty spices.

RedBrick Pizza has garnered numerous accolades from trade and business press nationwide. In 2008, Restaurant Business magazine ranked RedBrick Pizza 8th of "The Future 50" fastest-emerging growing chains in America, while it ranked 254th in Entrepreneur magazine's 2010 Franchise 500.

The leading fast-casual pizza franchise, RedBrick Pizza has operations in 12 states and Canada. For more information about hot, healthy RedBrick Pizza nutritional facts, visit
