A city heavily reliant on the auto industry, family bonds, and traditions.
From the outside looking in, we tend to get a bad rep.
People see our city as dirty, boring, and as Stephen Colbert famously quoted “Canada’s Rectum”.
What many of these outsiders don’t realize is, our city has a lot of heart, culture, and deep history.
From the indigenous tribes that roamed the land, to the underground railroad, to the rum runners…our city was a hot spot of history, and tourism.
I’m a proud Windsorite. I’ve lived in other cities, and no place has felt as much of a home as Windsor has. One of the smaller things that I took for granted living abroad, was how great our pizza scene is. In other cities, a common question I’ve asked was “What’s your go-to pizza joint,” and a shocking amount of answers I received were either Domino’s, Pizza Pizza, or some other big name pizza chain…
Being from Windsor, I’m a serious pizza critic…it’s no game. However, I’m not the only one who feels this way…most Windsorites do.
Recently, I came across an upcoming documentary by LRG Super, a GTA based content creation team. The intent behind the film is to put Windsor pizza on the map, next to big name pizza cities like Detroit, New Haven, Chicago, and New York.
Our pizza scene is so serious, that you can even become a member of the Windsor Pizza Club! What’s included with membership? Well they are currently partnered with 8 different pizza joints in the city, and if you visit all 8 you can win a free shirt! This is a great way to try out the best of the best in the YQG area, show your support, and most importantly…local restaurants help keep us fed, so it’s only right to give them business and help return the favour.
I’m a sucker for a good story, especially when food is involved. I grew up as a picky eater, but I’ve learned to respect the process, history, tradition, and flavours behind the scenes, and it has made me extremely grateful for local restaurant owners and good eats.
Windsor pizza sure is delicious, and unique..but do you think we can compete with these big name cities? Let us know!
Help show our appreciation for the community, and LRG Super by purchasing their merch and helping them continue to tell the untold stories we deserve to hear!
