Pizza 73 Launches Pesto Pizzas

New menu items now available at 73 locations across western Canada

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 15, 2013) - Pizza 73, western Canada's pizza leader, is celebrating the launch of two new pizzas with a traditional Italian flair: Pesto Garden Veggie pizza and Pesto Chicken pizza. The launch represents the first time Pizza 73 has offered pesto sauce and is another step in the company's strategy to appeal to an ever-growing audience through increased menu options. Other recent additions to the Pizza 73 menu include gluten-free pizza, Buffalo Chicken pizzas and Buffalo wings.

"Offering a menu that is big on choice, quality and affordability is very important to us, and our customers," said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza 73. "Introducing a quality pesto sauce to our kitchens will have a long-lasting and positive effect on our business, especially on the taste buds of our customers. Pesto sauce allows us to offer an entirely new flavour profile with endless possibilities, and is appreciated by more and more Canadians."

The new products are:

Pesto Chicken Pizza

Pesto sauce, chicken, black olives and red onions

Pesto Garden Veggie Pizza

Customers can purchase and try the new pesto pizzas with Pizza 73's Everyday Deal: buy one pizza and get a second of equal or lesser value - or a wing meal.
