Varieties of pies and pizzas vary from store to store, but may include pumpkin pie, apple pie, gluten-free apple pie, cherry pie, pepperoni pizza, cheese pizza, vegan pizza and more. All pies and pizzas contain absolutely no hydrogenated fats, no bleached or bromated flours, and no artificial flavors or preservatives. Selection varies by store and excludes frozen.
