Chick-fil-A is testing one new menu item that will blow your mind

Apr 2, 2024

Chick-fil-A has stuck to the basics on its menu for decades.

Now the beloved fast-food chain could be preparing for its most radical change ever.

And Chick-fil-A is testing one new menu item that will blow your mind.

Chick-fil-A has had one of the most consistent menus in fast food for decades.

The chain has centered its offerings around chicken strips, nuggets, and sandwiches.

But it’s testing a new menu item that would be the most out-of-the-box addition to its popular lineup ever.

Chick-fil-A experimenting with pizzas at its test kitchen

Chick-fil-A conducts tests for new products at its test kitchen in College Park, Maryland.

At the location called the “Little Blue Menu,” fans of the iconic chicken chain try out the new offerings that could eventually make their way onto menus nationally.

The test kitchen is a tribute to Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy who would test new items with customers on a special blue menu.

Now the chain is rolling out an assortment of pizzas and calzones for its customers to try.

In addition to a traditional pizza offering, Chick-fil-A is offering one with chicken nuggets, pickles, and Chick-fil-A sauce.

“Happy Pi(e) Day, College Park. We’re solving the equation by taking all the flavors you love and turning them into delicious 11-inch pizza pies,” Chick-fil-A said on social media.

Fans of the chain were invited to come in to try out the new pizza and calzone offerings.

“As an innovation kitchen brand, we are constantly looking at what our customers want to better serve them,” Chick-fil-A senior culinary lead developer Stuart Tracy said in a press release. “We’ve noticed our customers getting creative with Chick-fil-A ingredients on pizzas at home, so we’ve decided to jump on board!”

New Chick-fil-A pizza and calzone offerings

The chain debuted five pizzas and a calzone for customers to try at the Blue Kitchen.

Chick-fil-A Pizza Pie: The classic Chick-fil-A experience on a pizza. Mozzarella cheese topped with juicy, seasoned-to-perfection chopped Chick-fil-A Nuggets, drizzled with Chick-fil-A Sauce and served with pickles.

Buff-lo-Ranch Pizza Pie: Mozzarella cheese topped with seasoned-to-perfection sliced Chick-fil-A Nuggets, buffalo sauce creamy house-made ranch dressing drizzles, and a dusting of zesty lemon pepper seasoning.

Cheese Pizza Pie: Signature tomato sauce topped with mozzarella cheese, baked to bubbly perfection.

Pepperoni Pizza Pie: Signature tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, topped with savory pepperoni.

Meats-n-Veg Pizza Pie: Signature tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, topped with a medley of pepperoni, sliced sausage, chorizo, meatballs, mushrooms, and red bell peppers.

Pepperoni Pizza ‘Round: A twist on the classic calzone, but meant to be carried “a’Round.” Stuffed with signature tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and crispy pepperoni, baked to the perfect golden-brown crisp.

Chick-fil-A has no plans as of now to add these items to menus nationally, but rave reviews at the Little Blue Kitchen could influence their decision.

After dominating the world of chicken, pizza could be the next category that Chick-fil-A has its eyes set on.
