Pig Floyd’s founder Thomas Ward has announced plans to launch Pigzza, a new ‘Italian-ish styled’ restaurant in Orlando, Florida, US.

The new restaurant will be located at Mills 50 District in Orlando and is set to open on 18 April.

It will serve classic Italian dishes with a contemporary twist while focusing on sustainability and sourcing locally produced ingredients.

Pigzza’s menu will offer a variety of Italian-inspired items such as pizzas, pastas, a range of small plates, shareables, cocktails and wines.

The menu is claimed to offer playful takes on classic Italian dishes, including Brisket Parm, Pulled Pork Pappardelle and an Aperol Spritz Tart.

The wines offered at the restaurant will be sourced from small to medium boutique producers who focus on sustainable and biodynamic methods to produce their wines.

The flour to be used at the restaurant will also be locally milled in Indianola, Florida.

It is further claimed that Pigzza will use the Bianco di Napoli tomatoes for the preparation of sauces.

Ward said: “We wanted to create a restaurant that was approachable and fun while still offering high-quality, delicious food.”

The restaurant’s interior will feature colourful walls, terrazzo tables and an open kitchen. It will comprise both indoor seating and a large outdoor patio area.

Pigzza will be open six days a week for lunch and dinner, with dine-in and takeout options.

Reservations can be made via the hospitality technology platform Resy.
