Global Pizza Challenge

The 2022 Global Pizza Challenge

From its humble beginnings in 2009, the Global Pizza Challenge has developed into the planet’s biggest pizza competition as national winners are selected to compete on an international level. In its 13th successful year, organisers were keen to see passionate, independent pizza makers demonstrate their gastronomic masterpieces first-hand at culinary exhibitions and other venues spread across the globe.

This years competition took place at the Hotel & Hospitality Show at the Sandton Convention Centre. Independent pizza makers took to the stage for 3 days.
