2012 August: From Perth to Vegas

By Pizza Today

A Little Caesars with no connection to Detroit will be represented at Pizza Expo 2013 by its gregarious owner, Theo Kalogeracos. He’ll be flying in all the way from Perth, Australia, where the three restaurants he owns under the name Little Caesars Pizzeria are popular upscale eateries.

Theo was the 2010 Pizza Maker of the Year in the International Pizza Challenge, held annually at the Expo. He qualified for the finals that year by winning the Non-Traditional Division with one of his dessert pizza creations.

At Expo 2012, next March 19-21, he will demonstrate dessert pizza-making on the Demonstration Stage in the Exhibit Hall. Theo will also compete in the “Best of the Best” blind-box bake-off during next year’s show.

For an entertaining look at Little Caesars in Perth, watch the video below. The pies sure look good in the land down under.
