Caputo Cup Rules Released

By Jeremy White


Roughly 200 competitors in four divisions will take part in the annual Caputo Cup, the premier pizza-making competition on the East Coast. Sponsored by Antimo Caputo Flour and staged as a cornerstone competition at Pizza & Pasta Northeast in Atlantic City, the Caputo Cup takes place Oct. 3-4, 2018.

In the competition, pizzeria operators will battle head-to-head, bringing their best recipes and presenting their finished bake to a panel of judges in Traditional, Non-Traditional, Neapolitan/STG and Roman Pizza categories.

Attendees will be able to take in the action in the designated Caputo Cup area on the Exhibit Hall floor at Pizza & Pasta Northeast. Stakes are high — trophies and up to $3,000 in prize money are allotted to each of the division winners.

In order to sign up for the Caputo Cup, you must first be registered to attend PPNE. Click here to get that squared away.

The 2018 Caputo Cup rules are available here.
