Thought I'd start Pizza Pizza's own Topic:

Contacted Pizza Pizza's head office in Toronto, the woman I spoke to suggested I call their Distribution Centre directly at 416-236-1894 (press "0" to have your call directed).

The woman I spoke to at the Distribution Centre was clear in her responses to me (and I was very direct in my questions to her).
1 -- All Pizza Pizza dough is made on the premises in their commissary and it is a peanut and tree nut free facility.
2 -- Pizza Pizza understands the growing incidence of peanut and nut allergy in children and because they participate in school lunch programs have made it their policy to get a guarantee from their suppliers that their products are free of any cross contamination with peanuts or nuts. (Obviously barring the pre-made Two-bite Brownie which is in a sealed package. It may contain traces, but no nuts.)
3 -- Because of this understanding, Pizza Pizza is committed to not introducing any new items into their restaurants that contain nuts or peanuts.
4 -- They have a company wide policy that employees are not allowed to bring in any peanut or nut products into the restaurant.
She added that they don't say they are "nut free" because that type of guarantee isn't possible (as we food allergy folk know...)
What I found really interesting is that her boss (Head of Distribution) is anaphylactic to nuts himself and carries an Epi --
