After submitting a nutritional chart of pizza choices and slice sizes for review by the Ontario Government dietitian, Topper's Pizza was determined to be 100-percent compliant with the new standards and will be served at schools throughout the province.
The company's recently expanded menu also offers many healthier options, including multi grain crust, thin crust, gluten-free crust, turkey pepperoni and moderate cheese, all of which are available to schools.
"Schools across Ontario can be assured that a typical lunch size slice of Topper's cheese or cheese and pepperoni pizza either meets or exceeds the new Nutrition Standards for Ontario Schools in all categories, including protein, fiber, sodium, saturated fat and overall fat," said Emaan Toppazzini, director of Product Development, Topper's Franchise Company Inc., parent company of Topper's Pizza.
Toppazzini said the company achieved compliance without changing any recipes.
Topper's Pizza also supports education through fundraising support, school lunch programs, literacy programs, organized tours and more.
