Pizza Guys introduces its new Sriracha Pizza

By Denise Greer

Rancho Cordova, Calif., — When Pizza Guys creates their signature Specialty Gourmet Pizzas, they look to their customers to see what products are trending and tastes that their fans would prefer. There is tremendous interest in all things Sriracha Sauce, so a Sriracha Pizza is a definite win!

At our test kitchens in Rancho Cordova, we worked through many different crusts and topping combinations until we nailed it. Our Sriracha Pizza is baked on our Tuscany Thin Crust with a light garlic sauce and freshly grated mozzarela, then topped with the robust flavor combinations of red onion, canadian bacon, jalapenos, and pineapple. Once baked to perfection, the pizza is glazed with Sriracha sauce. Pizza Guys’ Executive Chef, Reza Kamalian, said,”We have crafted an exciting new recipe that combines hearty flavors with fresh ingredients that allow the taste of Sriracha to shine. The Pizza Guys Sriracha Pizza is a Sriracha lovers dream come true!”

Sriracha isn’t your normal sauce. CEO and founder of Pizza Guys, Shahpour Nejad, said,”It’s a product that fans are seriously obsessed with. Its flavor profile is different from many other hot sauces. Sriracha has received many food industry accolades including being named Bon Appetit’s Ingredient of the Year in 2010. Now that people know the flavor, they want it, crave it, and ask for it. The timing is perfect to create a winning pizza recipe that satisfies everyone.”

Pizza Guys marketing team is heavily advertising this limited time offering through both print advertisements and online advertising with social media. We will be featured on our local news with a live segment involving Sriracha Pizza themed obstacles with fan participation tying in with social media making this product launch one of our most interactive launches to date.

Customers who live in our service areas can order online at or by calling one of our locations.

Sriracha is a product of Huy Fong Foods. Huy Fong Foods, with its humble beginnings in Los Angeles, California in 1980, has grown to become one of the leaders in the Asian hot sauce market.

Pizza Guys was started in 1986 by Shahpour Nejad and Reza Kalantari. Their goal was to create a pizza dedicated to quality and value while combining the fresh California flavor. They started franchising Pizza Guys in 1994.  We currently have over 60 locations throughout California, Nevada and Oregon.
