BOSTON — Uno Chicago Grill has combined two American favorites in its new Bacon Cheeseburger Deep Dish Pizza.
According to a news release, the new pizza fills Uno's famous crust with hamburger, cheddar and mozzarella cheeses combined with traditional burger toppings — ketchup, mustard and dill pickle. Add to that bacon, caramelized onion and plum tomatoes, and this pizza tastes like it just came off the backyard barbecue.
"When we ask our regulars what they love most about Uno, they always say our deep-dish pizza, of course, but also our terrific burgers," said Chris Gatto, executive chef at the 200-unit chain. "So we thought, 'Let's bring these two favorites together in one delicious dish.' No surprise — it's been a hit. People can't believe how much it tastes just like a cheeseburger."
Also introduced this summer at Uno was its new Shroom Pizza, a deep-dish pie featuring marinated mushrooms, spinach, garlic, mozzarella and Romano cheeses.
