Pizza Expo

If you’ve even been to International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas, you’ve no doubt witnessed –– or participated in –– the numerous competitions held throughout the four-day show. From acrobatic dough throwing to pizza-making and fastest box folding, there are several ways to show your stuff and win (fame AND cash). All categories are open for registration now.

Returning to the 2014 show is the International Pizza Challenge, a culinary competition designed to pit pizzaiolos against their fellow pizza makers to determine the best pies in the country.

The traditional category (red sauce with toppings chosen from a pre-determined list) has 60 openings. Non-traditional (anything goes!) also has 60 entry spots.

The Italian category, which has a set of rules requiring pizza be created with traditional Italian rules, increased from 16 to 20 entrants.

The Pan pizza category has spots for 16 contestants.

New this year is a gluten-free category. Just 12 entry spots are available. There are no restrictions on toppings other than the mandatory use of a contestant’s own gluten-free dough.

Returning categories in the World Pizza Games include freestyle acrobatics, largest dough, fastest dough, fastest box folding and the pizza triathalon. Click here for more information on the World Pizza Games: http://www.pizzaexpo.com/World_Pizza_Games.cfm

According to Patty Crone, assistant tradeshow manager, all International Pizza Challenge and World Pizza Games categories have availability, but contestants must first register for International Pizza Expo.
