TORONTO — Joining the ranks of other pizza delivery stalwarts, Pizza Pizza will soon be offering a selection of ‘al forno’ pasta options. According to a company release, it will be testing family sized delivery pastas at some 20 restaurants in Mississauga, Ont. If customer feedback is positive, the company plans to roll-out pasta offerings chain-wide in coming months.
“Pizza and pasta go hand-in-hand,” said Pat Finelli chief marketing officer of Pizza Pizza. “The addition of pasta cooked al forno alongside our pizzas in our stone-baked ovens is a tasty next step that will add variety to a family’s order.”
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.
Mississauga residents are encouraged to provide pasta feedback in-store, through the corporate website and on Pizza Pizza’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
