Pier Pizza Company wants to know, have you ever tried pineapple? **Pineapple*** One of the few fruits that works on pizza. It contains Vitamin C and an enzyme called bromelain. Bromelain will aid digestion, a good thing if you eat as much pizza as I do, and it even acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, easing your aching muscles. If you were just out hammering for 5 hours, pour on the pineapple!

Pier Pizza Company ...Black Olives : Olives are full of healthy unsaturated fats that fight heart disease and lower cholesterol. You’ll also be getting some good things known as polyphenols and flavanoids. The fat will also help you absorb the nutrients from your other toppings.

PPC is thinking about green peppers on your pizza.  Delivered fresh from our local markets, like Belmont, we slice the green pepper just right to provide you with a low calorie, low fat topping that is high in Vitamin C and a good source of fiber.
