According to the press release below, the pizza-like creation swaps a dough-based crust in favor of "12 bites of lightly breaded, 100 percent whole breast white meat chicken" which are topped like a pizza with sauces, cheeses, vegetables, and meats. The Specialty Chicken will be offered in four flavors at launch: Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo, and Sweet BBQ Bacon.

Baseball is by far and away the most difficult sport to predict. Probably because most other sports have more teams that qualify for the postseason. So many more things can happen in baseball, mostly because of the 162 game grind. There are so many variables and even more things that need to click, to ensure success. Nevertheless, I’ll try and make sense of it all, with my 2014 predictions. Click here: Roc's 2014 predictions
