The 100 year old secret family recipe is freshly hand crafted in Topper’s Pizza stores all over Ontario every day.

Franchise Partners Marlene Tremblay and Denis Paquette of Topper’s Pizza Timmins, Ontario are successful entrepreneurs who have been “making dough” using the Toppazzini family recipe since 1999.
