Opening in October in conjunction with the Urban Outfitters (who owns the brand now) at King of Prussia Mall, the KOP pizza shop offered quick-serve pies and a whole menu of the popular rotolo (plus salads and desserts), but people just never seemed to get excited about the place.

If you’re already looking ahead to how you’re going to handle New Year’s Day, the good people at Pizzeria Vetri have got your back with their exclusive Hangover Cure pizza.

Pizzeria Vetri‘s “Pizza Jawn” series is a quarterly event where the Vetri team buddies up with a chef outside the family to collaborate on a limited edition pizza. This time around, the chef they’re bringing in is Yehuda Sichel (from Abe Fisher and elsewhere) and from October 17th to the 23rd, Pizzeria Vetri will be offering his Pork Belly Reuben Pizza. The Pork Belly Reuben pie will be available at Pizzeria Vetri’s Chancellor Street and Callowhill Street locations.
Oh, and in other news? Today is the grand opening of Pizzeria Vetri at the KOP Mall. It’s their new Square Pie model (which we told you all about a couple days ago), so if you’re in the mood for something square tonight, you’re in luck.
