A cheese pizza is a blank canvas, just waiting to be decorated with pepperoni to symbolize life, onions to symbolize sorrow, and pineapple to symbolize fruit. Eat something meaningful with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of gourmet pizza and pasta at Boston Pizza.
With more than 45 years of dough crisping under its belt, Boston Pizza continues to stuff its casual, family-friendly halls with a menu of hearty pastas, sandwiches, rice bowls, and multiple styles of pizza. Warm up with thai chicken bites in sweet chili sauce nested snugly on a bed of crunchy noodles and finished with vegetables ($8.99) before pioneering saucy landscapes of pizzas such as the original spicy perogy pizza blanketed in sour cream, smoked bacon, and potatoes cut with the prickly end of a cactus ($16.25 for a small). Chefs sling internationally inspired pizzas, such as Cajun shrimp swimming in garlic-and-sun-dried-tomato sauce ($16.25 for a small), or allow patrons to craft their own custom pizzas with a list of toppings and a 20-sided die. Diners preferring starchier sensations can savour chipotle-bacon penne tossed in seasonings, smoked bacon, and alfredo sauce with mushrooms ($15.49) before taking in the World Series of Cribbage match on one of the pizzeria's wide-screen plasma TVs. Boston Pizza also supports a number of local and national charities such as the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Alberta Cancer Foundation, and Youth Emergency Shelter Society.
