Smoked Chicken Combo now available at Cheech’s Pizza, Los Angeles.

PRLogAug. 14, 2014LOS ANGELES, Calif.In the newest twist on one of America’s favorite foods, something different is being cooked up in Los Feliz. California Gold BBQ Rubs and Cheech’s Pizza have teamed up to offer a new line of thin crust Smoked Pizzas with Superfoods. With the growing trend of people trying to eat healthier, it is only natural to bring it to pizza.

Cheech’s Pizza has developed a special process of infusing natural Hickory Smoke into several of their pizza toppings. Borrowing from the Nutritional Charts, they use foods that already go great on pizza. For example, the Smoked Chicken Pizza comes with lean Smoked Chicken Breast, Fresh Spinach, Basil, Tomatoes, Garlic and Onion. These heart-healthy Superfoods are served on a thinner crust pizza with less sauce.

A Family Business since 1993, the restaurant has recently traded up to the next Generation. Longtime owner Doug Clarey has handed the reins over to daughter Alie, who has “worked” at Cheech’s Pizza since about the age of 6. With Alie being Vegetarian, it inspired the next new creation: The Smoked Veggie Combo. The line-up of Superfoods on the pizza include Smoked Garlic, Green Pepper, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Onion and Fresh Basil. The unique recipe shows that Hickory Smoking is not just for meat anymore. Most people who taste it can’t believe it’s meat-free.

The new pizzas come seasoned with POWER and HEROIC! from California Gold BBQ Rubs. Cheech’s is the first Los Angeles restaurant to offer customers the Superfood blends that include Garlic, Red Bell Pepper, Turmeric, Cumin, Cinnamon, Thyme, Nutmeg and more. Just the combination of Rub with natural Hickory Smoke makes the Smoked Sausage one of the most popular new toppings at the restaurant. It would be stretch to call Sausage a Superfood, but the Smoked Sausage Combo does come with healthy Fresh Tomato, Garlic, Mushroom, Green Bell Pepper and Basil.

From now though Labor Day (September 1st), there will be special opportunities for the Press and Public to try the new line of Superfood Pizzas. The first event is this coming Saturday and Sunday, August 16-17 from 11:00am to 1:00pm (each day). People can stop by for a free Slice and taste the Smoked Superfood Pizzas for themselves. Cheech’s Pizza is located at 2116 N. Hillhurst, 90027.  Phone number is (323) 666-7744.

Cheech’s Pizza has a new Mobile App, which gives $2.00 Off the first order for those who use it. Available on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CheechsPizza

California Gold BBQ Rubs to Debut “HEROIC!” in San Diego at the Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest

Show Dates May 3-4, 2014. Over 4000 Attendees are Expected at Expo.

HEROIC! BBQ Rubs

HEROIC! Spice and Herb Blend comes in 2.5 oz and 5 oz. sizes

PRLog (Press Release) – Apr. 28, 2014 – SAN DIEGO — In a new twist to what promises to be a very active National BBQ Month in May, California Gold BBQ Rubs (CGBR) has been offered a last minute spot to join some of the nation’s most popular Gluten Free Food Brands in San Diego next month. The Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest will be held from May 3rd to 4th, 2014 at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center, starting at 10am both Saturday and Sunday. The event is open to the public and will have Free Food Tastings, Live Recipe Demonstrations and Seminars from some of the country’s top Gluten Free Experts.

Ironically, CGBR recently launched a company crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo earlier this month, with the goal of attending their first Gluten Free Expo on June 7th in Pasadena, sponsored by the Celiac Disease Foundation. With over 4000 people expected in San Diego this weekend, it is unsure whether they will have enough product left to take to the June Expo in Pasadena.

The new product called HEROIC! is an All Natural, Gluten Free Herb and Spice BBQ Rub, with Superfoods. International Patents are Pending for the unique Blend, which can also be used to make Homemade BBQ Sauce. The product contains No Added Salt, Sugar or Preservatives. It can be used as a Marinade or Instant BBQ Seasoning for Prepared Foods and Snacks.

CGBR plans to demonstrate HEROIC! by adding it to other Gluten Free Snacks, with some Brands also being present at the event. BBQ Superfood Chef Mick Brown also plans to demonstrate Easy Stove Top Smoking techniques for preparing foods at home. No Grill needed. Look for event photos and updates on their Indiegogo page next week.

The Town and Country Resort and Convention Center is located at 500 Hotel Circle North San Diego, CA 92108; (619) 291-7131. The Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest is sponsored by Living Without Magazine. Hours are 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Saturday (5/3/14) and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday (5/4/14). Tickets range from $5.00 to $25 (for 2 Day Pass).
