Pictou County Pizza is a regional variant of pizza found in Pictou County, Nova Scotia. The style of pizza is unique, owing to its "brown sauce" and Halifax-made pepperoni called "Brothers" — named after the company that makes it Chris Brothers Meats & Deli.[1] The pizza can be shipped frozen across Canada via an arrangement between a local pizza shop and the local UPS agent. The most common destination is Fort McMurray, Alberta with a two-day delivery time.[2][3] Since 2014 an annual competition between pizza makers in Pictou County has been held, with awards being given under a People's Choice category and as selected by a panel of judges.[4] In early 2018, it was announced that Pictou County pizza will be made available in the Halifax area through delivery from a location in Truro for a $10 delivery fee, with the first delivery on February 10, 2018.
