HOUSTON, Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Russo's New York Pizzeria, the global franchise chain known for its authentic New York style pizza and classic Italian fare, invites guests to embark on a savory culinary experience with its newest limited time offer: Kale Krust.

Head Chef and Founder Anthony Russo's latest wholesome creation incorporates a delectable, gourmet pizza crust packed with hidden veggies using fresh, organic kale.

"We use premium flour and Sicilian extra virgin olive oil," said Chef Russo, the creative mastermind behind Russo's New York Pizzeria. "This unique crust packs the nutrients and benefits of Kale into a delectable, flavorful crust that kids—and parents—love! It's a great way to get kids to enjoy eating fresh vegetables and kale."

Russo's Kale Krust pizza is made to order with guests' favorite toppings and baked to perfection in a 500 degree brick oven. Chef Anthony Russo is proud to offer this top-of-the-line pizza crust with fresh, premium, high-quality ingredients. Chef Anthony Russo's Kale Krust contains no additives, preservatives, artificial flavors, nitrates, rSBT or rennet. "If it isn't fresh, don't serve it." That's the Russo family promise since 1978.

"Healthy pizza shouldn't compromise flavor, which is why we prepare our products by hand and use quality ingredients and traditional methods of cooking." said Russo.

Russo's Kale Krust was perfected over a span of six months in Chef Anthony's private kitchen, which included crafting a great tasting authentic, New York-style crust that is unmatched in quality. In addition to the Kale Krust, the 49-location global restaurant chain has launched a new, delectable specialty menu item: La Dolce Vita Pizza.
