MOD Pizza Adds a Touch of Green to Spring With Newest Limited Time Pizza Offering

The "Cooper" Pairs Roasted Asparagus With Seasonal Flavors and Spices

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 6, 2016) - MOD Pizza, the pioneer of fast casual pizza, is sprouting a new addition to its simple menu of endless options -- the Cooper, an artisan-style pizza tailor-made for spring that features seasonal roasted asparagus along with red peppers, Italian sausage, red onion, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses and fresh basil. Now through June 30, customers can order the Cooper at one MOD's 116 locations nationwide.

"The Cooper highlights fresh asparagus that is roasted in-house daily and bursting with fragrant flavors. We're also bringing back a real crowd-pleaser with this pizza -- ricotta cheese," said Brian Figler, culinary manager at MOD Pizza. "We love showcasing seasonal vegetables that we hope will encourage people to experiment with ingredients they may not immediately associate with pizza. Whether customers try the Cooper or add roasted asparagus to their own pizza or salad, our goal is to continually mix it up at MOD."

In addition to the Cooper, guests can order any one of MOD's nine classic, handcrafted and custom-made pizzas or build their own creation choosing from more than 45 signature sauce, cheese and topping options -- all for one price. MOD also offers salads, milkshakes, fresh-brewed iced teas, lemonades and local craft beer and wine, where available. 

MOD currently has locations in 16 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
