Pizza Pizza testing new pasta

By Canadian Pizza   


January 4, 2010, Toronto – Using ‘al forno,’ or ‘from the oven,’ style cooking, Pizza Pizza is testing family-sized delivery pasta at over 20 restaurants in the Mississauga area.

Once preliminary consumer feedback has been addressed Pizza Pizza will start serving pasta, chain wide, early this year.

The three new pasta dishes include ‘totelloni’ alfredo, tortellini’s jumbo cousin, filled with a blend of mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan and romano cheese and baked in a creamy alfredo sauce; penne bolognese baked in a rich meat sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes; and macaroni and cheese baked in a creamy blend of aged cheddar, romano and parmesan cheeses.

“Pizza and pasta go hand-in-hand,” said Pat Finelli, chief marketing officer at Pizza Pizza. “The addition of pasta cooked al forno along side our pizzas in our stone baked ovens is a tasty next step that will add variety to a family’s order.”


Mississauga residents are encouraged to provide their pasta feedback in store, through the corporate website and on Pizza Pizza’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
