(LAS VEGAS, NV, March 10, 2015) — Orlando Foods, a third generation food importing company specializing in the marketing and distribution of premier Italian products in the USA, is set to gather the pinnacle in pizza once again. On the heels of hosting the highly successful inaugural US Caputo Cup Pizza Competition and the Second Annual Global Pizza Summit in New York City, Orlando Foods will bring together both pizza masters and the finest of Italy’s edibles at the International Pizza Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Taking place March 23-26, 2015, at the Expo, Orlando Foods’ booth 144 will house the best of the best in pizza, both in pizza-makers and preferred products. Guests will have the opportunity to meet and watch a roster of master pizziaoli in action, including:
- Roberto Caporuscio – Celebrated Chef/Owner of Kesté Pizza & Vino in New York City and Don Antonio by Starita in NYC and Atlanta, Master Pizzaiolo, US President of the Association of Neapolitan Pizza-Makers (APN)
- Giulio Adriani – Master Pizzaiolo, Owner of SRO Pizzeria in New York City, pizza consultant
- John Arena – Third generation pizza-maker and Co-Owner/Founder of Metro Pizza restaurants, Las Vegas
- Davide Civitiello – Award-winning Pizzaiolo crowned 2013 Word Pizza Champion, Naples, Italy
- Michele D’Amelio – Decorated Pizzaiolo and 2013 Italian Style World Champion – International Pizza Expo
Also to be featured at Orlando Foods’ booth, are supreme Italian ingredients such as handpicked, peeled Ciao tomatoes and finely ground top-grade Caputo flour. A standout product includes the highly anticipated, first-ever, NY Style Pizza Flour from preeminent flour mill, Molino Caputo. Said Orlando Foods’ Co-Owner Fred Mortati, “By using top quality, authentic products from Italy, you can easily elevate your pizza. Today’s pizza has lost much of its key flavor profiles due to inferior ingredients. We’re here to awaken peoples’ taste buds and bring Italian back to pizza.”
Guests can visit Orlando Foods’ booth to sign up for the Second Annual US Caputo Cup Pizza Competition and Third Annual Global Pizza Summit to be held January 2016, in New York City.
