Windsor is the capital of pizza in Canada, everyone knows it. I mean what other cities in Canada have their own style? Shredded pepperoni, Galati cheese, canned mushrooms, it doesn't get better than that. But, it does!
Windsor's pizza chefs are not satisfied with just cooking up the classic Windsor style pizza anymore.
Arcata shook up Windsor with their shawarma pizza, Bullseye South Windsor made vegan pizza one of the hottest pizza's in Windsor, Oven 360 changed the way we order pizza with their deliciously crafted wood oven Neapolitan pizzas and Armando's created an award-winning Windsor Style Deep Dish.
Now Armando's is again shaking up the Windsor Pizza scene, this time with a Pizza Bar.
Armando's Pizza Bar
Armando's Pizza Bar is a unique pizzeria concept, not just to Windsor but Canada. Armando's Pizza Bar is a newly renovated pizzeria that serves 5 styles of pizzas. Two of which are exclusive creations by corporate chef Dean Litster.
The 5 styles served at Armando's Pizza bar are the Neo-Napoletana, Roman, Windsor Style Deep Dish, Detroit Style Deep Dish, and New Windsor Pizza.
The Neo-Napoletana is a 12" round pizza, this style hails from the city of Naples and is cooked at 700F in a Wood Fired oven. The dough is fermented for 36 hours. The pizza features a charred bubbled crust.
The Roman is a 24" long flatbread pizza cooked at 550F in an electric oven, the dough is fermented at room temperature for 24 hours. The Roman is an old-style Italian pizza that has experienced a new wave of popularity, this style of pizza is only available at Armando's Pizza Bar and Cortina's in Windsor.
Windsor Style Deep Dish
The Windsor Style Deep Dish is a Dean Litster creation and was ranked #1 in 2018 at the Canadian pizza nationals. It's a hybrid between Detroit Style Deep Dish and Windsor Style Pizza. It's a 9x13 square pizza and is cooked at 550F in an Electric Oven. The Dean Martin was ranked #1 in Canada and the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger finished top 5 at the International Pizza Expo.
Detroit Style Deep Dish
