Chipotle is expanding from burrito fillings to pizza toppings. 

The company announced Wednesday that it is looking to expand Pizzeria Locale, a Denver, Colo. pizza restaurant concept it has backed, which offers up pizzas with a baking time of less than two mintutes. 

"Pizzeria Locale offers a menu that includes 10 classic pizzas, four American classics, or customer-created combinations from a selection of high-quality ingredients presented in an interactive service line," stated the press release from the company Wednesday. "Pizzas are then fired in a high-temperature pizza oven that bakes the pizzas in less than two minutes. The restaurant also serves salads and sides including prosciutto and meatballs. Red or white Italian wine is available on tap."

Don't get your hopes up too much. The company says the expansion will be "slow" and "measured," and is currently looking at two more Denver locations as their next step.
