THE FOUNDER HISTORY
Chef Papa Rez immigrated to Canada in 1988. Upon arriving in Canada, Reza began a job at a local pizza franchise. This is where his love for pizza making began. He quickly learned the basic skills of pizza making, and in a few short months, became the fastest maker at the store!
The more pizza’s he made, the more he fell in love with the craft. Once his skills were more refined he entered into a competition where he was awarded the winning record of preparing a 22″, 5 item pizza, and inserting it into the oven in less than thirty seconds!
