Pie Five Pizza Co. Introduces Gluten Free Crust

THE COLONY, Texas, Oct. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pie Five Pizza Co. is
slicing up a healthy new option for guests. Today, Pie Five, a division of
Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:PZZI), adds Gluten Free Crust to its menu at
all eight Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex locations.

"We are thrilled to introduce Gluten Free Crust to the Pie Five menu," said
Interim Pie Five CEO Clinton Coleman. "Now those on a Gluten Free diet can
still enjoy pizza on a regular basis. Our menu truly provides delicious and
healthy options for everyone."

In the last few years many consumers have made a choice to reduce their
consumption of gluten, a protein composite found in food processed from wheat,
rye and barley.

"As a growing fast-casual-chain, our goal is to focus on our customers' needs
while redefining the pizza dining experience. Our customers desire fresh pizza
with healthy options in a timely manner, and that's what we produce," Coleman
said. "We can't wait for our guests to try our new Gluten Free Crust."

In addition to welcoming Gluten Free Crust to its menu, the Pie Five menu
includes other menu enhancements such as their new delicious cheese
combinations of Mozzarella and Provolone. They have also added olive oil as a
healthier sauce option and a flavorful new Italian Herb Thin Crust made daily
with their own blend of Italian Seasoning.

Pie Five was recently named by Nation's Restaurant News as a 2012 Hot Concept
award winner. Guests can choose from more than a million combinations of fresh
made-to-order pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices prepared in less
than five minutes on a 9-inch Crispy Thin, Classic Pan, Italian Herb Thin or
Gluten Free Crust.
