If you’ve ever eaten in Chase or Lenoir Dining Hall, you’ve probably had a slice or two of cheese or pepperoni pizza – but you’ve probably never eaten, much less imagined, an apricot, ricotta and honey pizza.
This unique flavor is one of the many new types of pizza appearing at Chase.
Hunter Stegall, residential chef at Chase, said new healthy pizza flavors include fruit and ricotta, kale, beet pesto and butternut. CDS is also introducing more meat-based pizzas like barbecue bacon and mango and bacon sriracha, jalapeno and honey. He also said CDS is planning on releasing new pizza flavors for the Spring semester.
“I literally did a double-take when I saw the words ‘strawberry and goat cheese’ next to ‘pizza’,'' Marley Davis-Martin, a sophomore majoring in business and sports administration, said. “I was so confused and honestly shocked about their decision to serve something like that.”
These distinctive flavors are part of an initiative by Stegall to bring “bold new flavorings to the students — both sweet and savory.” He said he was inspired by changes to Chase itself, with new renovations set to open in early October.
