The award-winning restaurant is paying homage to a Middle Eastern classic with the launch of its Chicken Shawarma Pizza
Pitfire Pizza, Dubai’s favorite neighborhood pizza joint has introduced an all-new limited-edition item inspired by the Middle East’s most popular street food: the Chicken Shawarma. The exclusive pizza pays homage to the classic favorite by giving its ingredients the ‘Pitfire’ treatment just in time for Ramadan. Combining the savory, tangy flavors of traditional shawarma with its award-winning sourdough crust, the homegrown restaurant is set to serve the signature flavors of the Arabic sandwich, now on an artisanal slice of pizza. Priced at AED 58, the Chicken Shawarma Pizza is available for a limited time only for both delivery and dine-in across select locations.
Pitfire’s unique pizza style, not quite Neapolitan, not quite New York, has taken inspiration from the region to present the Chicken Shawarma experience. The 10” pizza features a shawarma spiced gravy base, chicken and roasted potatoes, baked then topped with chopped Arabic pickles and garlic sauce. Staying true to the brand’s consistent commitment to quality ingredients, toppings for the Chicken Shawarma Pizza are also crafted in-house. Just like all items from the award-winning menu, the dough of the Chicken Shawarma Pizza is made with the restaurant’s popular 72-hour slow-rise fermentation technique, resulting in a distinct aroma, texture, and mouth feel. The one-of-a-kind technique is the secret to Pitfire’s lightweight thin sourdough crust, which allows the yeast to work its magic and make the pizza easily digestible.
The Chicken Shawarma Pizza is a creative addition to any iftar spread and an equally great go-to for late-night suhoor; promising to completely shake up a foodie’s pizza experience! Its value-driven pricing also makes the exclusive item a perfect sharing solution between friends and family.
As the city comes together to celebrate this special time of the year, the limited-edition pizza is a flavorful reminder of the diversity and inclusivity of Dubai. The exclusive Chicken Shawarma Pizza is available for dine-in at JLT Cluster D and Vincitore Boulevard, Arjan. Customers can also order the pizza on delivery, from both JLT locations as well as the outposts in Arjan and Marasi Drive.
