Essex-Windsor knows and loves pizza. We have some of the finest locally sourced ingredients around.
“The food is amazing but quite frankly, it’s never been about the food, it’s about the family. Mom and Dad host the entire family at every available opportunity. You can have the greatest toppings in the world, but the most important ingredient is love. That’s where the magic happens.”
When you are dealing with a large gathering, there is no point in taking time and energy to make homemade dough, just buy your favorite pizza dough and spend the time with your guests gathered to make individual pizzas—the greatest comfort food.
Using store-bought pizza dough, spread dough out and cover with your favourite toppings.
Bake in a preheated pizza oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 5 minutes or a preheated kitchen oven at 475 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 10 minutes.
