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

Published

on

7-Eleven launches new lighter, crispier hand panned pizzas – made in
Canada with quality Canadian ingredients.

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.

Holiday Plant-Based Recipes | Celebrity Chef Craig Harding shares untraditional plant-based Thanksgiving Menu

The President’s Choice® Brand Puts a Plant-Based Twist on Beloved Thanksgiving Classics

PC® Test Kitchen teams up with Celebrity Chef Craig Harding to create an untraditional holiday menu, incorporating an exciting new line-up of PC® Plant-Based products

The team at President’s Choice® (PC®) is helping overwhelmed hosts tackle Thanksgiving menu planning with recipe ideas and new plant-based products that will suit any palate, revealing that plant-based meal options may be easier than you think. A recent survey* found that 38 per cent of Canadians are looking to integrate more plant-based foods into their diet, but many Canadians aren’t too sure where to start.

“This weekend, millions of families across the country will be sitting down to a Thanksgiving feast – full of turkey, gravy and stuffing,” says Kathlyne Ross, VP of product development and innovation at Loblaw Companies Limited. “And, at many of those tables, someone will be looking for a non-meat option for dinner. Our expanded line-up of President’s Choice products that are meat and dairy-free will help make plant-based eating easier and more delicious than ever, particularly this holiday weekend.”

To provide much needed support to the almost one-third of Canadians who find it challenging to accommodate guest and family member food preferences during the holidays*, the team at President’s Choice® has collaborated with celebrity Chef Craig Harding to re-imagine festive classics, incorporating an expanded line-up of PC® Plant-Based products. These delicious recipes showcase that creamy soups and dressings, hearty mains and decadent desserts are a possibility for all food lovers around the table:

  • Kale, Delicata Squash and Kohlrabi Salad featuring PC® Cucumber and Dill Cashew Dip
  • Roasted Celery Root and Pear Soup with Red Pepper and Cashew Crostini featuring PC® Plant-Based Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Dip and PC® Dairy-free Kefir Probiotic Fermented Coconut Milk
  • Mushroom and Chickenless Chicken Wellington featuring PC® Plant-Based Chickenless Breasts with Vegan Charred Gravy
  • Citrus Roasted Heirloom Carrots and Avocado with Toasted Togarashi Seed and Nut Blend on a bed of PC® Organics Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • Vegan Tiramisu featuring PC® Dairy-Free Plain Cultured Coconut Milk Probiotic Yogurt Alternative and PC® Dairy-Free Kefir Probiotic Fermented Coconut Milk

“Plant-based cooking doesn’t need to be overwhelming, especially with all of the newest options available right at the grocery store that will help food lovers reinvent their holiday favourites,” says Chef Craig Harding, executive chef and owner at La Palma and Constantine in Toronto. “Taking some of my favourite recipes and putting a plant-based twist on them was incredibly easy, especially with the broad range of PC® Plant-Based products.”

As Canadians plan their menus for a busy season of holiday entertaining, the PC® brand is stocking shelves with new additions to the quickly growing PC® Plant-Based line-up of products. To make the PC® Plant-Based products easily identifiable, the line’s unique branding includes a clearly marked Plant-Based logo. Plant-based products will be dispersed throughout the store, alongside traditional products reinforcing the PC® brand’s commitment to offering Canadians variety when it comes to grocery shopping for items that suit their lifestyle and dietary preferences.

PC® Plant-Based products are now available at Loblaw stores across Canada, including Loblaws®, No Frills®, and Real Canadian Superstore®.
