Pie Five Pizza Co. is coming to the Kansas City market. The Kansas City Star reports that Dave Goebel, the former chief executive officer for Applebee's, has signed a franchise agreement with the chain that opened its first location in Fort Worth, Texas, only two years ago. Pie Five has been characterized as the Chipotle of pizza, so diners have to come prepared to pick from the periodic table of toppings.

Pie Five's claim to fame is the individual pizza customized to order. They promise a 9-inch pie in five minutes. There's thin crust, herb thin crust and pan crust (a gluten-free option is available for $2 more), 21 toppings and seven sauces. The menu also has a few signature pies, including the BBQ Pulled Pork (slow-cooked pulled pork, roasted peppers and onions, a mozzarella-provolone blend, cheddar cheese, barbecue sauce and diced dill pickles) and the Pie Ferno (spicy marinara sauce, pepperoni, banana peppers, jalapeño peppers, a mozzarella-provolone blend, cheddar and crushed red pepper).

And I'm intrigued by the cookie pies, wherein cookies are sold by the slice. I can't help it if Mrs. Fields' mall cookies and the promise of a cookie cake never purchased came into my life at a formative time. I've never had Pie Five's pizza, but the concept seems appealing. Anybody care to weigh in on what to expect from the Texas chain?
