Pieology of Chandler and Avondale Raising Money for Military Assistance Mission in Arizona

Share Article

The “Bacon Halo Pizza,” a favorite pizza of a U.S. Marine who gave his life serving our country, is raising money for the Military Assistance Mission during the month of January.

We hope that when our guests see us giving back to assist those military members in need, it will inspire them to give back more within their community, said Kris Olson.

This month, Pieology, located at 3450 W Chandler Blvd., Suite 5, Chandler, AZ 85266 and 9915 W McDowell Rd, Avondale, AZ 85391, unveiled its newest delicious pizza creation in order to raise money for charity.

The new pizza is called the “Bacon Halo Pizza.” The pizza is topped with pepperoni, olives, banana peppers and of course bacon! The bacon actually surrounds the pizza creating a “halo” effect, adding the perfect combination of savory flavor with the already fresh ingredients.

Besides the delicious taste of this pizza, this pie will give back to a great local cause that helps military families and wounded warriors. Pieology reached out to the Military Assistance Mission to honor a fallen hero who not only had a love for his country and family, but a love for pizza.

Military Assistance Mission is an organization that provides morale and financial aid to current Arizona active duty military, their families and wounded warriors regardless of overseas deployment status. This is a charity that is near and dear to Kris Olson’s heart, who locally owns and operates the two Arizona Pieology locations. Kris, knows the importance of the group, having also served in the military himself. That’s why for every “Bacon Halo Pizza” sold one-dollar will be given to the Military Assistance Mission.

The Pieology experience starts with a fresh house-made dough that is pressed into 11.5-inch thin pizza crusts. Guests select from eight signature sauces, moving down the line to choose from more than 40 fresh and flavorful meats, cheeses, vegetables, herbs and spices. The customized pizzas are then stone oven fired to perfection in less than three minutes. To finish, guests have the option to add after-bake “Flavor Blast” sauces, including fiery buffalo, pesto and BBQ, to really make it their own! Pieology also offers gluten-free crust, whole wheat crust and a selection of seven signature pizzas, which can be customized upon request.

Pieology’s custom salads allow guests to create made-to-order salads by choosing from three fresh lettuce options of organic field greens, romaine hearts or spinach. Guests then select from any of Pieology’s large variety of toppings, including sunflower seeds, garbanzo beans and candied walnuts, along with a choice of five dressings made in-house. Pieology also offers a signature Classic and Caesar salad, which can be personalized with additional ingredients upon request. The generous portioned salad and pizza are the perfect pairing for a shareable meal.

“What better way to give back then to donate each and every time one of these delicious pizzas are ordered,” says Kris Olson. “We hope that when our guests see us giving back to assist those military members in need, it will inspire them to give back more within their community.”

“MAM is very excited to partner with Pieology. Naming the pizza "Bacon Halo" is to honor my son Michael and those who are currently serving and have served. They are our angles!" Margy Bons, Founder and CEO of Military Assistance Mission.
This is the second Valley location of Pieology, with the first location being in the Avondale area. For further information, log onto their website http://pieology.com/ .
