The pizzas will be available at all Gabriel Pizza locations
and by the slice at TD Place from Sept. 26 until Oct. 24.

The company encourages fans to vote through Twitter,
Facebook and Instagram by posting a message or picture with the hashtag
#NORTHSIDEGABES or #SOUTHSIDEGABES.

“The north side versus south side debate has been a
generational dispute,” said George Hanna, president of Gabriel Pizza, in
a news release. “We’re proud to support the Redblacks franchise and CFL in
Ottawa.”

“One of the great things about partnering with Gabriel
Pizza, over and above the delicious pizza, is their understanding of our
traditions,” said Jeff Hunt, president of OSEG Sports, the Redblacks parent
company.

The winning recipe selection, which is based on the combined
number of votes and orders, will become the official Redblacks Pizza and a
permanent menu item. It will be announced at TD Place during the Oct. 24
Montreal game.
