TORONTO — The Pizza Pizza chain announced the addition of a whole-wheat crust to its menu.
According to a news release, the multigrain dough is also a source of Omega-3, a heart-healthy fatty acid. The multigrain crust will replace the chain's current whole-wheat crust. The new recipe will include extra-virgin olive oil, pure amber honey and a blend of oats, sunflower seeds, wheat germ and flax. Flax is the source of the recipe's Omega 3.
"We are deeply committed to providing consumers with healthy alternatives," said Paul Methot, vice president of commissary and distribution. "We found that the multigrain dough could combine the attributes of Omega-3 and maintain its superior taste appeal."
Pizza Pizza has more than 480 locations across Canada, including 340 dine-in and delivery restaurants in Ontario and Quebec.
