Here’s some news you won’t want to miss! Disney teams up with award-winning chef and TV host, Roy Choi, to launch “Mickey & Friends(Giving),” inviting fans to celebrate the holidays with a twist. Creating a new take on the traditional Thanksgiving pie, beloved pizzerias across the country make six Mickey & Friends inspired pizza pies, available for one day only on November 21st.
In honor of the popular Friendsgiving holiday, Disney has teamed up with award-winning Chef Roy Choi – known for his popular restaurants Kogi BBQ and Best Friend – and five renowned pizzerias across the U.S. to launch Mickey & Friends(giving), offering a whole new take on the traditional ‘pie.’
Disney and Chef Choi collaborated with his friends at Jon & Vinny’s in Los Angeles; Home Slice Pizza in Austin; Roberta’s Pizza in Brooklyn; Pizzeria Beddia in Philadelphia; and Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix to create six specialty pizzas inspired by the Sensational Six friends that will be available for one day only, on Saturday, Nov. 21. From an updated take on a classic pepperoni in honor of the true original Mickey Mouse, to a spicy ingredient as a nod to Donald Duck’s feistiness, each pie embodies the characters’ distinct personalities and collectively tells a story of friendship.
Starting today, fans can pre-order the specialty pizzas – for local pickup or delivery on Nov. 21 – at disney.com/mickeyfriendsstaytrue. Each pizza will be $36.00, plus tax, and will include a custom pizza box and Mickey & Friends(giving) stickers, for those who pre-ordered. Quantities are limited; first come; first served, while supplies last.
“I am so excited to host this ultimate pizza party mash-up for fans and friends to share this Friendsgiving together,” said Chef Roy Choi. “I named one of my restaurants Best Friend because I live for that feeling when you’re just hanging out having fun with your friends and nothing else in the world matters. I was able to team up with some of the best pizzerias in the U.S. to make some awesome recipes inspired by Mickey and his Friends, and now, fans too can experience them with each other this holiday.”
The Sensational Six-Inspired Pies Include:
Jon & Vinny’s (Los Angeles: Fairfax and Brentwood) – Mickey Mouse
Inspired by the true original, Mickey Mouse, Jon & Vinny’s special pizza-pie features a twist on classic pepperoni ‘za. This pie features smokies sausages smothered with three cheeses (fresh mozzarella, aged mozzarella, and caciocavallo) and topped with onions. A new spin on a timeless classic.
Home Slice Pizza (Austin) – Minnie Mouse
Inspired by Minnie Mouse’s fashionable, bold, and fun spirit, Home Slice’s specialty pizza features a deck oven pie topped with a bright red sauce and rich and creamy mozzarella white polka dots. At the center of the pie is a parmesan crisp in the shape of Minnie’s signature bow.
Roberta’s Pizza (Bushwick) – Donald Duck
Inspired by the legendary Donald Duck, Roberta’s pizza speaks to Donald Duck’s feisty and fiery spirit. It features Roberta’s house-made spicy nduja sausage and bitter castelfranco radicchio topped with smooth Taleggio cheese and lemon zest.
Roberta’s Pizza (Williamsburg) – Daisy Duck
Inspired by Daisy Duck’s sassy yet classy attitude, Roberta’s white pie features Roberta’s special salsa verde and thinly sliced potatoes. It is sure to bring some of Daisy’s elegance and spiciness to your Friendsgiving table.
Pizzeria Beddia (Philadelphia) – Goofy
Inspired by Goofy’s quirky, funny, and slightly clumsy personality, Pizzeria Beddias’s crafted pizza pie includes your favorite sandwich toppings on a pizza, and what could be goofier than that! This pizza features a light tomato cream base, mozzarella, finished with mortadella and topped with a crunchy salad. It’s playful, and so yummy!
Pizzeria Bianco (Phoenix) – Pluto
Inspired by the loveable Pluto and his insatiable appetite, Pizzeria Bianco’s specialty pizza is a fun play on meat-lovers pie. It features a generous helping of fennel sausage, pepperoni and cheese. It’s sure to be delicious!
If you do not live close to one of these restaurants, you can still join in on the fun at home. Make your own Friendsgiving pizza inspired by one of your favorite characters! Links to the recipe are available on partners.disnehy.com/mickey-and-friends-stay-true.
Mickey & Friends(giving) is a continuation of Mickey & Friends: Stay True, the global campaign launched earlier this year inspired by the Sensational Six – Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto.
