The Pizzaburger Returns Permanently to Boston Pizza's Menu

Feature Item Turned All-Time Favourite Continues to Create Buzz Internationally

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwired - September 17, 2013) - Boston Pizza, Canada's largest casual dining chain, today announced that The Pizzaburger, the brand's epic creation combining two favourite foods, is permanently on the menu beginning today. First introduced to Canada in April, 2013 as part of a feature menu, The Pizzaburger quickly became one of the most popular items ever launched by Boston Pizza.

"The Pizzaburger is one of our biggest triumphs in food innovation and our guests agree. They've asked us to bring it back and we're happy to deliver," says Michael Gray, Director of Culinary and Executive Chef at Boston Pizza. "We're always looking for ways to satisfy guests' cravings and give them food experiences they won't get anywhere else and The Pizzaburger does just that. It's earned its spot on the menu."

The Pizzaburger is a half-pound prime rib burger with pizza sauce, pepperoni, bacon and mozzarella cheese, wrapped in Boston Pizza's hand-pressed original pizza dough, baked to perfection and garnished with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and a choice of side. The Canadian creation is available at each of Boston Pizza's 350+ locations in Canada and also recently launched in the U.S. at Boston's Restaurant and Sports Bars to much buzz.

In addition to The Pizzaburger, Boston Pizza is also adding a number of other tasty new items including Butter Chicken Thin Crust Pizza, Pulled Pork Penne, the Spicy Perogy Burger and Jalapeño Shrimp Tacos.
