Our Famous Pizzas
"I am inlove with your pizzas. I think they can cure cancer. Just read where the fundraising is going to on this one. That's awesome! Your pizza is helping cure cancer in more ways than one" -breast cancer patient
"My house smells like a pizzeria when it is cooking. It is so delicious that I won’t even buy a frozen pizza again and the proceeds go to great causes too. Made with fresh wholesome ingredients."
-Karen B, Napanee
"I cannot say enough good things about the whole Nonna's experience. The freshest ingredients & perfect portion sizes. Everything is always delicious. The monthly specials are super creative and we love the little touches that make us feel like family. We always say "this one is the best" then the next time, exact same thing- it's always true to. Our whole street is on the pizza party and even asks every 2 weeks- "Are we getting pizzas ?" Love it!"
-Michelle, Richmond, ON
"Knowing that you are giving back and enjoying fantastic pizza at the same time is Win, Win!!! The homemade sauce and dough are amazing!!!!!!!!!"

Our Story - "What started as a one time fundraiser became my entire lifelong dream!"
We started as a couple who loves pizza and loves helping others in need. In December 2020, my husband and I decided to do a fundraiser initiative to help others in our community. Then it grew and grew and grew! We decided that Nonna's Famous Pizza Box was meant to be a full Social Enterprise and my pride and joy.
I am Erin, CEO and founder of Nonna's Famous Pizza Box. I am a busy mother of 4 and a very socially conscientious human who strives to have an impact as well as build community.
Nonna's Famous Pizza Box collects funds for local charities and in return provides quality DIY gourmet pizza kits and products. Since day one, a genuine love and passion for quality service and products has defined who we are and what we do.
As of July 2021, we have raised and donated over $12,000 to different charities, organizations and individuals in the Ottawa, Kingston and Lennox & Addington areas.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month so we are raising money for The Phoebe Rose Rocks Foundation. We will have one big Pizza Party on Saturday, September 18th with free delivery in the Ottawa area.
Our F E A T U R E is Mediterranean, which includes olives, feta cheese, red peppers and artichoke.
Nonna's Famous Calzones are coming soon! Check out the Ladies Go Local night with Jess Can Eat for more details on our launch day!
In November: Nonna's is so very THRILLED to be partnering with the Children's Aid Foundation of Ottawa and supporting their World Trivia Night Fundraiser. We will be taking orders for the event and 30% of all proceeds will be going directly to this amazing organization.
