Sasso Pizza Market and Bar is currently looking for a rare bread called "the cook". These folks work hard in a fast and organized manor, persevering everyday to provide the top quality food in their house!

A bit about us:

Sasso pizza Market and Bar has been cooking pizzas since 2016 offering Neapolitan style Za’s in our wood burning oven (yes we actually only use wood!)

We are a scratch based restaurant located on the West Hamilton Mountain that also offers pasta, feature dishes, and bar snacks such as oysters and charcuterie.

Our restaurant is driven to offer quality and honest service, food and drink that is made either from scratch or locally sourced and cared about as much as we do our guests.

We are an independent restaurant standing in the “land of the chains” ready to offer something different and authentic to the West Mountain.

If you believe in working hard, constantly improving, providing immense hospitality and that quality is most important, then I think we’ll have your attention!

-maintain equipment by following proper procedures when using and cleaning tools and appliances

-work individually and within the team to accomplish daily, weekly, and monthly tasks

-work in a safe and healthy environment, free of danger and negative behaviour
