Amr El Soleya finally got the third goal for the Red Devils just before the break after getting on the end of Magdi Kafsha's set-piece to fire into the top corner.
Shortly after the restart, the hosts were awarded a penalty by the VAR for a foul by Samir on Rami Sabri, who made no mistake from the spot to reduce the deficit.
ENPPI continued to fashion chances but were not able to threaten goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy, who had come in for some criticism after Wednesday's los.
Kafsha came close to making it 4-1 in the last 13 minutes but his effort was saved by Gaad, who also denied El Shahat in the last eight minutes, as Al Ahly cruised to a 3-1 win that moved them to within three points of leaders Zamalek in second place.
