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!!!!!!!!!"
- Julie P, Napanee
Me and my family is Italian and we take pizza making very seriously lol Nonna’s pizza box is the perfect activity to make with our toddler, fresh authentic ingredients from Erins garden that you can taste! We have a stock of sauce and dough in the freezer ready to pull out when the new baby comes to have a fun dinner/activity for our toddler to do that will feed us some yummy pizza in those early days! Can’t recommend Nonna’s pizza box enough!

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, founder and operator 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.
