If you want to spend two minutes getting jealous at Canadian people then watch below

Jealous of people eating at Boston Pizza?

If your only other choice is Dennys, I suppose that's possible.

"We take a crunchy, all-beef taco, smother it in nacho cheese, lettuce, tomato and our special southwestern sauce. Then we wrap it in a soft, flour tortilla with a layer of refried beans in-between.  Then we wrap that in a savory corn tortilla with a middle layer of Monterey Jack cheese. Then we take a deep-fried gordita shell, smear on a little of our special "guacamolito" sauce and wrap that around the outside.  We bake it in a corn husk filled with pico de gallo, then then wrap that in an authentic Parisian crepe, filled with egg, gruyere, merguez sausage and Portobello mushroom. we take the whole thing and wrap that in a Chicago style deep dish meat lovers pizza!  Finally we roll it up in a blueberry pancake, dip it in batter and deep-fry it until it's golden brown. Then we serve it in all commemorative tote bag filled with spicy vegetarian chili. It's 15 great tastes all rolled into one."

Couldn't you just go to a decent Italian restaurant & get a calzone with meatballs?

& the sauce goes inside & out, you heathens.
 
2013-04-04 11:03:36 AM

Cybernetic: That looks awesome.


I'll be honest, it's a cooked hamburger, re-cooked for two minutes in a microwave then wrapped in our pizza dough with toppings and thrown through the oven.  They do look awesome, but it's overcooked meat.

/Still eat them
//Free food when I work

Yeah, they never have wing night like every pub in existence.

I'm not talking about those boneless wing freakshows either. Just their regular wings. They used to be utterly sub-par, but now they're pretty damn good.

Also, team pitchers. A lot of memories of those. Well, not so many memories, mostly fuzzy ones, a lot of incriminating photos.

Yeah, that's it.

Also, dough consistency varies from location to location depending on who made it that day.  One of the things I hate about my current location is that our dough people suck at making good dough.
 
2013-04-04 11:10:46 AM
we invented something in college called the Hambizza.  It was dough, a thin layer of beef, then cheese and toppings.

:::sigh::: We have a Boston Pizza going up here in our small town in Michigan. Rather pointless when you already have a ton of restaurants in town that serve great pizza. I tried Boston Pizza in the early 90s when I did a lot of traveling in Canada (not sure if I was in Winnipeg or Edmonton when I tried it), and I was not impressed. It was not Yonge Street UFO pizza bad, but it wasn't good pizza and it was overpriced.

This Pizza burger looks good, might try it out when they open here... but I'd rather somebody open a decent seafood joint in town.

I don't know why Canadians struggle with making decent Pizza.

You should see what we come up with in the back that isn't on the menu for our staff meals.  The quality of ingredients is actually pretty great but the way corporate wants us to make stuff is shiat.  But stuff like that (well, minus the duck anyways) gets made on a pretty regular basis.  IF you want something either off menu with what we have (i.e. we have the ingredients) or something we can come up with what we have, feel free to ask, just not in the middle of a rush, and expect to pay a bit more for the components.  But a poutine pizza, at least at the stores I've been at, yeah, we'll make that for you.

We don't, just don't get the pizza here.  Like I said, most of our dough is made by people who have no clue what real dough should look like.  Plenty of awesome pizza places in Canada.

Hell, I can get anything from wood-fired thin crust pizzas, to Chicago style pan pizzas within a ten to fifteen walk from home and I live in the suburbs.

Speaking only on behalf of Toronto, there are some pretty good pizza places (Pizza Libretto, Queen Margherita, Pizza Gigi, Mama's Pizza), but the problem is that there's also a ton of crap out there. You have to go out of your way to find good pizza.

The city's big pop-culinary fascination these days is indeed hamburgers. A galaxy of burger shops has popping up over the last few years (Burger's Priest, Big Smoke Burger, South Street Burger Co., Hero Burger, etc.)

I think it is all a matter of persional taste, I do not like some chains, but do love others. Though I find the indipentent sotres tend to be a better match to my wants.

Though I could use a better dough recepie.

As far as I'm concerned, a pizza burger is a hamburger with mozzarella and marinara sauce on it. At least in New York it is.

I don't care for their pizza, and their burgers are meh (frozen half-filler patties), but I'd still try this next time I order from BP, if only because I don't order most of the rest of their menu items because they give you too freaking much food.  This looks a little more manageable.
 
2013-04-04 12:25:48 PM
Meh. Why not?

I'd try it.

For even more randomness, the Boston Pizza chain originated in Edmonton.
