Windsor, ON: The Pizza City

 

Exploring Windsor’s Rich Pizza Culture: The Pizza City Capital of Windsor.

Discover Windsor’s vibrant pizza scene and its rich history, culture, and traditions known as he pizza city capital. Join the Windsor Pizza Club to explore the city’s best pizzerias and support local businesses. Can Windsor’s pizza compete with big-name cities like Detroit and New York?

Windsor, Ontario, a city known for its strong ties to the auto industry, deep-rooted family bonds, and rich traditions, often faces unfair judgment from outsiders. Despite being dubbed as “Canada’s Rectum” by some, Windsor boasts a vibrant community with a rich history and culture that often goes unnoticed.

From the indigenous tribes that once inhabited the land to the era of the underground railroad and the notorious rum runners, Windsor has been a hub of historical significance and tourism for centuries.

As a proud Windsorite, I’ve come to appreciate the city’s unique charm and offerings, especially its thriving pizza scene. Unlike other cities where chain restaurants dominate, Windsor takes its pizza seriously. The passion for pizza is ingrained in the community, with locals being serious critics of their favorite pie joints.

Recently, I stumbled upon an exciting documentary project by LRG Super, a content creation team from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), aiming to showcase Windsor’s pizza culture on a national scale. The documentary aims to elevate Windsor’s pizza reputation to the likes of renowned pizza cities such as Detroit, New Haven, Chicago, and New York.

The Windsor Pizza Club, another testament to the city’s love for pizza, offers enthusiasts a chance to explore the best pizza joints in the YQG area. With membership perks including exclusive discounts and the opportunity to win free merchandise by visiting partnered pizzerias, the club embodies the spirit of supporting local businesses.

As someone who appreciates not just the taste but the stories behind food, I’ve developed a newfound respect for local restaurant owners and their culinary craftsmanship. Windsor’s pizza isn’t just delicious; it’s a reflection of the city’s heritage, tradition, and identity.

But can Windsor’s pizza scene truly rival those of big-name cities? That’s a question worth exploring. Join us in celebrating Windsor’s rich pizza culture and supporting initiatives like LRG Super’s documentary, which shed light on the untold stories that make our community unique.

Windsor’s Inspirational Artist

Here at AngelStar Digital, we’re a team of passionate designers & producers who have been assisting local business owners achieve their goals & dreams for over 25+ years while supporting Windsor’s Inspirational Artist. In all these years we’ve been operating, we have met a lot of people, learned about their business, what drives them, and their life stories. We love to converse with our clients, get to know them, and build relationships with them.

With COVID-19, political tensions & natural disasters crowding our news outlets, it has brought a lot of negativity into our lives, and the world as a whole. Lately, we have been trying to fill our followers’ news feeds with positive content focused around small business motivation, and featuring local talent in our weekly Friday postings.

However there is one talented individual, with a heart of gold who recently struck my attention….meet Frederick Mason.

Frederick was born in the Town of Leamington, July 1940. He was employed by J. P. Thomson Associates, Architects & Engineers of Windsor,  prior to teaching Architecture & Interior Design for the Windsor Board of Education for over THIRTY years. He earned his B. A. majoring in visual arts at the University of Windsor and his B. ED at the University of Toronto. Frederick fell in love with oil painting around 1985, while he was teaching.

Here’s what Frederick had to say:

“I have been oil painting since 1985. I fell in love with the brush and oil when I went back to University of Windsor to earn one of my degrees while teaching Architecture for the Windsor Board of Education. Teachers do not get raises for how good they teach, they get raises for how much education they have gathered. Never made sense to me. So, this is when I fell in love with oil painting. 

Each time I have painted a subject, I will offer it to them and as long as they hang it up for all to see…..it’s theirs. I love to please people with my artwork. It does not matter if the subject of a painting is not about them, they still take it when offered and hang it up for all to see.”

One of the things that shocked me, was that Frederick told us that in all these years of painting he has NEVER sold one of his pieces. He’s donated almost every piece that he created on one condition…you hang it up for the world to see! Frederick has created many paintings, and has offered them to many local businesses & organizations over the years.

However Frederick’s work has also been enjoyed outside of Windsor-Essex. One of his pieces titled “Global Warming” was even sent to PM Justin Trudeau!

If you thought that was impressive, Frederick even sent a painting to the Louvre in Paris! Which is known as the world’s most visited museum! The painting is of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire.

Frederick’s creates all forms of art pieces, and doesn’t limit himself to one style of painting. He paints a lot of landscapes, skylines, and even art with deeper meaning. Take a look at the piece below. This painting is titled “Where do we go?”.

In this painting Frederick tries to convey a message that global warming isn’t just about humanity, it’s about mother earth’s creatures too! Did you notice the continents were formed to resemble animals? Which ones do you see?

Frederick is a very talented individual, his artwork & charity are a beaming light of positivity in the world, which is why we decided to share his story, and we hope that you will share his story too! Below I have attached more of Frederick’s’ work for you to enjoy! Thank you for reading, and thank you to Frederick for telling us about yourself and letting us feature you!
