MOD Pizza introduces Pizzas of the Week for October {& giveaway!}

*Disclosure: This post is sponsored by MOD Pizza. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

Yesterday, I was able to stop by the MOD Pizza in Troy, MI, to try out their "Pizzas of the Week," which will be featured in October (one pizza per week) at MOD Pizza locations throughout Michigan.

All of the Michigan MOD locations will be donating $1 from each specialty pizza, and each goes to a designated charity partner that is making an impact in their community.

Each selected charity created their own specialty pizza to be featured on the menu at TSFR’s 11 MOD Pizza locations. The schedule for “Pizza of the Week” is as follows:

October 1-7: Grace Centers of Hope
Ann Marie LaFlamme, anchor at WXYZ, will kick off the campaign with her pizza, aptly named “The LaFlamme.” The pizza features a garlic rub, red sauce, fresh basil, Mama Lil’s Sweet Hot Peppers, mozzarella cheese and a sri-rancha finishing sauce. Her pizza will benefit Grace Centers of Hope, a faith-based organization that provides residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation services to the Southeast Michigan community.

October 8-14: Fleece and Thank You
Fleece and Thank You is a Novi-based charity specializing in making fleece blankets and delivering them to children in hospitals all around Michigan and Northern Ohio. They have created “The Fleezza,” which features red sauce, oregano, green pepper, pepperoni, chicken, bacon, mozzarella, parmesan cheese and a BBQ swirl finishing sauce.

October 15-21: New Day Foundation for Families
New Day Foundation for Families is a Rochester-based organization that provides financial and emotional support to individuals and families impacted by cancer. Their pizza, named “New Day Way,” features red sauce, mozzarella, chicken, spinach, mushroom, tomato and olives.

October 22-28: Scarlet’s Smile
Scarlet’s Smile is an organization named after an adorable 5-year-old little girl from Commerce Township who is fighting a battle with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). The organization is currently raising money for the construction of an all-inclusive playground to accommodate children with disabilities. The pizza, also called “Scarlet’s Smile,” includes red sauce and asiago, mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta and feta cheeses.

Additional funds will be raised for each charity through the sale of paper MOD Pizza shields, which will be available to purchase for $1.

My favorite of the four pizzas I tried was the New Day Way, though I ordered it without olives (I'm not a huge fan of olives). The pizza wasn't quite as flavorful as some of the other three pizzas I tried, but the chicken, tomato, and mushrooms blended together nicely.

The Scarlet's Smile pizza is good but a little plain—it only has cheeses on it, but could be referred to as a five-cheese pizza. The Fleezza was also good, especially with the BBQ finishing sauce.

I actually really liked The LaFlamme, too, but it was a bit too spicy for me! The sweet hot peppers and the sri-rancha finishing sauce give it a bit of a kick.

Each of the pizzas will ONLY be available in "MOD size" (aka the 11" crust) during the month of October.

Which of these pizzas are you most looking forward to trying?
