Derrick Rose Dunks Deep Dish Pizza Deal

Derrick Rose will be creating his own pizza as part of becoming an equity owner in the Chicago pizza chain Giordano’s

How’s that for alliteration?

Derrick Rose has become an equity owner in the Chicago pizza chain Giordano’s. Rose, who is recovering from an ACL injury, will create his own signature pizza and will appear in Giordano’s new national ad campaign. This all comes in an effort from Giordano’s to expand its brand outside of the Chicago market. They are most famous for their Chicago-style deep-dish pizza pies.

“I’m pretty good in the kitchen,” Rose commented.

Mmm . . . Derrick Rose and deep-dish pizza, dare I say my two favorite things about Chicago?

Looks like Rose is getting the endorsement memo as he is set to actually profit off of this ACL injury. “The Return” chronicles his road to recovery as part of his 14-year, $260 million extension with Adidas. Rose also has endorsement deals with Powerade, Foot Locker and 2K sports.

Any guesses what will be on Rose’s signature pie? Submit them in the comments section below.
