Autumn has been forever branded as the season of pumpkin spice. This is certainly not new information, nor do we mind the prevalence of the ~iconic~ fall flavor. I suppose it started with the PSL obsession by Starbucks aficionados, but it has escalated into lip balm, hair color, marshmallow Peeps, Cheerios, and more.
Well, someone finally recognized that this demographic has been ignored for FAR TOO LONG, because ladies and gentleman, may I introduce…
Anthony Rotio is the mastermind behind the seasonal pizza pie. And as reported by Cosmopolitan, Rotio isn’t much of a PSL dude — but his wife is an autumnal queen so he wanted to cook up something special for her! #truelove
Rotio told Cosmo that he was inspired by pumpkin pies:
It should also be mentioned that we are in very good hands with Anthony Rotio, ’cause homeboy KNOWS and LOVES the ‘za. Rotio is the inventor behind The Pizza Shelf, a patent pending baking tool that will allow folks to make Neapolitan pizzas in an 800 degree oven.
Excuse us, because we’ve gotta head to the kitchen and get a slice of this dessert pizza ASAP.
