TORONTO, ON, June 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pizza Nova is the first pizza company in Canada to introduce a new, healthier pepperoni topping, sourced from animals that are Canadian-raised without antibiotics or hormones and vegetable grain-fed.
Since 1963, the Italian-Canadian family franchise company, based in Toronto, has built its reputation on quality.
"Our improved pepperoni is another expression of our commitment to providing the best, freshest and healthiest ingredients anywhere," said President Domenic Primucci.
"Consumers today are more conscious of what goes into their food, so it is always important for us to listen and adapt to their needs. We've been successful with a dairy-free mozzarella, trans-fat-free dough and gluten-free crust, so we believe this new pepperoni will be a huge hit for pizza lovers," Primucci added.
The improved healthier pepperoni follows Pizza Nova's own recipe with Canadian-raised beef and pork, which are vegetable and grain-fed.
From over 140 locations across Ontario, Pizza Nova pizzas are made daily with fresh dough and sauce from vine-ripened tomatoes, picked, washed and packed within six hours, and the best ingredients available from reputable farmers and producers.
