There’s a New Pizzeria in the Neighbourhood...and It’s Inside 7-Eleven Stores Across Canada

December 2, 2019 GMT

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 2, 2019--

On December 2, 7-Eleven Canada invites Canadians to visit the new pizzeria in their neighbourhood - featuring hand panned pizzas made with quality Canadian ingredients.

The brand’s newest offering strikes the perfect balance between authentic Italian heritage and Canadian traditions. Knowing that the dough is the most important element to customers, 7-Eleven developed a light and crispy crust made from 100% Canadian wheat using authentic natural sourdough from Puglia, Italy. The dough is then hand-stretched and panned in B.C. to provide the lightness and crispiness reminiscent of an Italian pizzeria.

Quality Canadian ingredients top these flavour-packed pizzas including traditionally slow-dry cured pepperoni from Montreal. Three types of 100% Canadian milk cheeses bring the flavours together, including provolone and parmesan from Ontario and mozzarella from British Columbia.

“Our goal for our new pizza recipes was to provide a quality, delicious pizza hot from our store ovens in minutes 24/7 - or delivered to your home,” explains Norman Hower, VP and GM of 7-Eleven Canada. “The crust is arguably the most important piece of the pie, so we took our time to develop an authentic tasting dough that we knew people would love.”

For the month of December, Canadians are able to sample the new pizzas for free every Friday from 2-4pm! Whether you’re in a crunch for a kid’s party, tomorrow’s breakfast, or craving some late-night munchies, 7-Eleven Canada has you covered with late-night deliveries in over 350 stores and over 410 on December 16. To see if your local store delivers, visit www.7-eleven.ca/delivery.
