Uno Unveils Nine-Grain Pizza Crust

""Nation’s Restaurant News reports, “Uno Chicago Grill is making pizza on a nine-grain deep-dish crust for a limited time, and also is serving new grilled pizzas.”

“The crust can be ordered for any pizza, but it is being featured with three new toppings: buffalo chicken; chicken and wild mushroom; and roasted vegetable, caramelized onion and goat cheese. The new nine-grain dough is made from a wheat base mixed with rye, corn grits, brown rice, oat flakes, triticale flakes, soy grits, flax seed, millet, barley and sunflower seeds. It has less fat and sodium and more fiber than the145-unit casual dining chain’s regular crust. ‘We’ve added a nine-grain crust that is so flaky, buttery and sweet you’ll forget it’s healthier. It tastes incredible and has a crunch that makes it memorable,” executive chef Chris Gatto said in a release.”

“The grilled pizzas are grilled bacon, Cheddar & tomato; grilled fire-roasted sweet red pepper; and grilled Rustica with sun-dried and roasted cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives, caramelized onions and feta and goat cheeses.”
