International Pizza Challenge

One of the crown jewels of International Pizza Expo is the country’s largest and most prestigious pizza-making competition. The International Pizza Challenge draws competitors from all across the globe in five different divisions.

Nearly 200 pizza makers compete for serious prize money ($7,500 for the two largest divisions, $4,000 for the two smaller divisions and $5,000 for Pizza Maker of the Year) and even larger bragging rights.

If a skilled pizza pro won both the Non-Traditional category and then Pizza Maker of the Year, for example, they’d leave Las Vegas with $12,500 in their pockets. Not a bad haul for a few days’ work, is it?

Check out the advanced breakdown of this year’s schedule. If you are attending the show March 19-22 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, be sure to stop in at the International Pizza Challenge intermittently. The creations just may inspire your own pizzeria’s next top seller.
