Can you believe that this time last year, MidiCi Kissimmee was firing up their wood fired Italian ovens for the first time?  We enjoyed attending their fun media tasting and devouring fantastic appetizers, authentic Neapolitan pizzas and custom menu offerings to celebrate their one year anniversary and also learn more about their February pizza drive for charity.

#IHeartMidiCi Charity Drive:

To give back to the local community after the success of their first year of business, MidiCi Kissimmee invited 8 local foodies to create a unique pizza to reflect their personality and food preferences using a wide variety of fresh, natural, high quality ingredients (which include gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options).  Their pizza creations are available for all guests to order through the month of February and $2 per pizza sold will be donated to their charity of choice.  Charities include Give Kids The World Village, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida, St. Jude, Wounded Warriors Project, All About The Cats and Serenities Grace.  “It warms my heart that people love to come to MidiCi to celebrate.  We are proud to provide an authentic Neapolitan pizza experience using high quality ingredients, many imported from Italy such as our flour, olive oil, tomato sauce and prosciutto, and cooked in our wood fired Italian ovens.  We are so excited to be collaborating with some of Orlando’s finest foodies to give back to the community. Their pizza creations were inventive and showcase the variety of ingredients we offer,” said owner Troy Renfrow.

The eight Orlando foodies participating include:
