WHAT ARE McCAIN AND OBAMA'S PIZZANALITIES?
EXPERTS AT UNO® WEIGH IN

Boston, MA, August 29, 2008 -- Uno Chicago Grill®, fulfilling its civic duty as an American original, asked its team of chefs to comment on the "pizzanalities" of presidential candidates McCain and Obama and come up with suggested recipes for both.

According to Executive Chef Chris Gatto:

The McCain Pizza is a no-nonsense, straight talker, so we start by piling on the basics with an extra helping of cheese - perhaps, but not necessarily, of the aged variety. But the McCain Pizza is also a maverick, which is willing to function in a bi-partisan manner, so there's room here both for meat (pepperoni and sausage) and veggies (green pepper and mushroom). Finally, we add a helping of onions that some will insist is "not truly conservative," but which will undoubtedly deliver a surge of flavor and drive out the menacing forces of blandness.

Since Senator Obama traces his career roots to Illinois, where Uno® originated in Chicago, his legacy would be a Chicago Deep Dish Pizza. The Obama Pizza also has a hint of audacity to it, so we suggest a liberal layering of pepperoni to add bite and round out the ticket, delivering a taste you can sink your teeth into. However, if you're not a fan of pepperoni, don't be afraid to change your topping…after all, the Obama pizza is all about change.

According to Uno, the idea for the development of the candidates' pizzanalities came from their restaurants in Denver, which were looking for some unique specials to offer visiting conventioneers.
