Pizza Pitt (Student Union)

Features piping-hot, oven-fired artisan pizzas and flatbreads. When it comes to our students' favorite foods, we know pizza is high on the list. Pizza Pitt is a way to break their norm of the typical pie they would normally find on a daily basis, making pizza more of a craft with fresh, on-trend ingredients tailored to students' preferences. The venue also serves hot sandwiches, pasta casserettes, sides (including breadsticks, cheese sticks, and spinach artichoke dip), and desserts (i.e. crème brulee, cheesecake, cannoli, featured cake of the day, and more).
