    Manischewitz factory in Jersey City, N.J., will feature a Matzo Pizza Kit for Passover.

    It's not your bubbe's matzo.

    The New Jersey-based largest producer of kosher food in North America is breaking tradition in its 129-year history by unveiling its first triangular matzo.

    Manischewitz says the shape is part of its Matzo Pizza Kit.

    CEO David Sugarman says matzo pizza is a Passover staple for Jewish families because they are not permitted to eat foods made with yeast or leavening.  What New Food Can You Share at Phillies Ballpark?What New Food Can You Share at Phillies Ballpark?

    The company needed a special die to make the new shape from the traditional rectangle. The company says breakage meant it had to replace a cooling conveyor with a new process. Employees now grab the matzo by hand and place it into cartons to cool.

    The company says it can produce about 1,500 triangles every 15 minutes.
