A Jackson pizzeria is going to make its third appearance on the popular Food Network series “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on Friday.
“The Fieri family loves both cooking at home and great restaurant food, so they’re combining the best of both worlds with some Triple D-style takeout — cooking up recipes sent by DDD alums who join Guy and Hunter via video chat,” the episode description said. “On this menu, there’s New Zealand red deer comin’ from Texas, a stromboli from Jackson, Wyoming, seafood stew from a classic Georgia diner and sinful cinnamon rolls out of Colorado.”
Pinky G’s has also appeared in “funky pizza” and “celebrity pizza” themed episodes. The restaurant has locations in Jackson and Big Sky, Montana, and are open daily, in addition to a food truck.
In the “celebrity” pizza episode, host Guy Fieri tried the restaurant’s “Abe Froman” pizza, named after the “Sausage King of Chicago” from the classic film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” The pizza has shredded mozzarella, buffalo mozzarella, spicy sausage and fresh chopped basil.
In the funky episode, Fieri tasted the restaurant’s “funky chicken” pizza, which has shredded mozzarella, oven-roasted chicken, artichoke hearts, red onions and ricotta cheese on house-made fresh basil pesto.
Pinky G’s strombolis, which will be featured tonight, have mushrooms, onions, peppers and mozzarella cheese stuffed inside and are brushed with garlic oil.
The pizza can be ordered locally and shipped nationally.
