New York City-based The Doughnut Project and the makers of leading pepperoni brand Hormel have teamed up for National Pizza Party Day (May 21) to bring pizza lovers a food mashup like no other: the Cheese the Day doughnut.
The Doughnut Project’s one-of-a-kind pepperoni pizza doughnut takes inspiration from Hormel Pepperoni Cup N’ Crisp, a premium pizza topping uniquely crafted to curl into a bowl shape as it cooks. Using half of a plain and unglazed doughnut as the base, the Cheese the Day doughnut is topped with homemade marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella and a serving of Hormel Pepperoni Cup N’ Crisp, then popped in the oven for a few minutes.
“We knew there was no better time than National Pizza Party Day to introduce food lovers to the beloved flavor of pepperoni in an unconventional way, giving us all more reason to celebrate,” says Shane Ward, Hormel Pepperoni senior brand manager. “We’re thrilled to partner with The Doughnut Project, who created a memorable and unique doughnut topped with pizzeria-level Hormel Pepperoni Cup N’ Crisp.”
The Cheese the Day doughnut will be available for a limited time from Friday, May 21, through Sunday, May 23 at The Doughnut Project’s location in New York City’s West Village.
