Ask anyone from Windsor, Ontario about their hometown’s pizza and you’re going to get an earful about how it’s the best in the world. The rest of the world, however, hasn’t been paying attention.
George Kalivas is a former Windsorite who was disturbed by the fact that his hometown is typically overlooked on lists of the top pizza cities in the world. In The Pizza City You’ve Never Heard Of, he sets out to prove that Windsor deserves to be included among the top pizza cities on the planet.
In this road-trip documentary, Kalivas explores some of the most well-established pizza places in Windsor - as well as some new ones - talking with suppliers, pizza joint owners and pizza enthusiasts about the essential characteristics that both define and distinguish a true Windsor pie.
Sometimes comical, it’s an insightful, mouth-watering historical examination of how the classic Windsor pizza evolved, how its current proprietors are maintaining the tradition, and how the new ones are keeping it alive.
Until now, Windsor has been left off many of those best pizza cities in the world lists. Thanks to The Pizza City You’ve Never Heard Of, that’s sure to change soon.
