New York's Katz's Deli Pastrami Comes to Genuine Pizza. If you've never had a chance to try the world-famous pastrami at Katz's Deli, there's good news: Find it at Genuine Pizza. The Katz’s pastrami pizza on rye crust, which chef/owner Michael Schwartz created last summer through a partnership with the deli, is now available at all Genuine Pizza locations through September 30. Think of it as Schwartz's take on a pastrami sandwich-inspired pizza. Staying true to the classic, the pie boasts a rye crust topped with sauerkraut, Gruyère cheese, and a mustard-based sauce. Available through September 30 at various locations;

Limited-Edition Flan Croughnut at the Salty Donut. Tuesday, September 18, two of the Salty Donut's most popular flavors will become one. To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, the shop will unveil the flan croughnut, a doughnut/croissant hybrid not to be confused with the trademarked Cronut. The croissant-like pastries are rolled in light sugar, filled with a Cuban flan custard, and splashed with a Havana Club rum reduction. The doughnut is then topped with crunchy hard caramel and dusted with edible gold dust ($5.50). Plus, each croughnut comes with a mini bottle of Havana Club rum and a cocktail recipe card by Chat Chow's Gio Gutierrez. Get a sneak peek of the doughnut through a one-day-only preview box delivered by UberEats beginning at 11 a.m. Monday, September 17. Inside, find two flan croughnuts and two café con leche doughnuts ($20). Otherwise, the croughnut will be available at the Wynwood shop beginning September 18. Through September 30 at the Salty Donut, 50 NW 23rd St., Miami; 305-925-8126;
