Pizza Show

A Day of Inspiration

It’s time to bring it – that is, bring your best pie to the Canadian Pizza Chef of the Year competitions at the Canadian Pizza Show! The show is set for Monday, Oct. 16, at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont.

“I loved the competition on all levels,” said Khrystyna Collins of Applestone Pizzeria in Burlington, Ont., of her experience at the competition and show. “I can’t believe the level of creativity that was displayed on that day! It gave me so many ideas that I couldn't wait to try back at my pizzeria. I would 100% recommend all pizzerias to come and try it out! You have fun, learn lots, and get tons of information on food brands. If anything, it gets your name out into the pizza world, and exposes you to where your business stands next to others!”

And remember: you don’t have to compete to pick up great ideas for your pizzeria. Join us at the Canadian Pizza Show for a day of inspiration!

The Canadian Pizza Show is presented by Canadian Pizza and show sponsors Saputo Foodservice (Diamond) and Marsal Pizza Ovens (Gold) and Ardent Mills (Gold). Sponsors for the Chef of the Year competitions are Saputo Foodservice, Moretti Forni and Escalon Premier Brands. >> Register now!
