Anybody know anything about this chain with a not too promising sounding name?
I do! A friend of mine is employed by them, right now they are just working out of a small test kitchen. He's brought me some samples, my understanding is that it's going to be personal pizzas made to order and the pizzas are cooked in an oven that bakes them in like 2 minutes. The BBQ chicken pizza that I tried was pretty tasty..
I have a business card in my car from him, it's Pizzaworks, not Pizzaworx. White and red text on a black background
Ask me any questions and I'll get the answers for you
OK saw my buddy yesterday..
It opens next week.
He says it's a Canadian owned & operated concept, but I think it's modeled after an american chain called 800 Degrees
The concept is custom pizzas made to order in front of you from start to finish in under 5 minutes.. The pizza bakes at a super high temperature
Hope this helps!
The BBQ chicken pizza he brought to the pub for us one night was pretty tasty to me.. It wasn't using those nasty processed white meat chicken strips with painted on grill marks but they actually shredded up a rotiserrie chicken and used it as a topping, white and dark meat both. Crust was nice and thin, etc. Was only room temperature when I had it but I'd think a nice crispy well done one would be nice. Didn't ask about pricing but hopefully it's reasonable
Pictures for you guys.. Took them on my phone
