Between our one-of-a-kind dough, homemade sauce and fresh ingredients, the Your Pie kitchen can get pretty hot. Then there is the sweltering heat of the summer sun. But, never fear you hungry and sunburn people, we have the perfect solution for you. We can sum it up in one word: GELATO! What is gelato you ask? Some may say it’s just a fancy word for ice cream and for that answer they get to go stand back out in the hot summer air. For those of you who say that gelato is a flavorful, healthy, creamy, sweet, frozen, melt in your mouth, year round, delicious treat… you are right!
Although gelato is the Italian word for “frozen,” it is actually less solidly frozen (by about 10-15 degrees) than ice cream when served. Why should you care about a measly 10 degrees? Well, since you asked, that few degrees enhances the flavor and allows the gelato to melt in your mouth. Melt in your mouth delicious? Do you really need another reason to come enjoy some Your Pie gelato? If no, then come on by your favorite Your Pie and grab a cup of the light, tangy and delicious treat. If you still need convincing, just check out the health benefits.

After all of this talk about gelato, we’re not sure why you’d need more convincing that it is by far an amazingly delicious dessert. But just in case you’re not satisfied, we have one more tidbit of information for you. Gelato is ice cream’s predecessor dating back to ancient Rome when snow and ice were brought down from mountaintops to make the decadent dessert. All of that climbing, bitter cold and time for a little gelato? It must be good! And it is! Don’t just take our word for it though; step out of that summer sun and into your nearest Your Pie location to cool off with ice cream’s creamy superior.
