Thread: International Pizza Expo

  1. #1

    International Pizza Expo

    I'm headed to Vegas next week for the Pizza Expo. It's the largest pizza show in the world. I will be competing in the non-traditional category. We finished in 5th place in 2016, hoping to improve on that. The Travel Channel is airing a show tonight at 10 PST about last years competition. If you love pizza, its worth a watch. There are several competition categories...

    Traditional - only 2 of the following toppings allowed ( Pepperoni, Sausage, Bacon, Ham, Mushrooms, Peppers, Tomatoes, Onions and Olives),

    Non Traditional - no restrictions on type of dough, sauce, cheese or toppings

    Pan - Styles include, but are not limited to, the following: Chicago, Detroit, Grandma, Ohio Valley, Old Forge and Sicilian. There are no restrictions on dough, sauce or toppings, except that the pizzas must conform to a pan style.

    Pizza Napoletana - The products that provide the base for “Pizza Napoletana” include wheat-flour type “00” with the addition of flour type “0” natural yeast, water, peeled San Marzano DOP tomatoes and/or fresh cherry tomatoes, marine salt and extra-virgin olive oil. The dough must be kneaded by hand or with a low-speed mixer. After the rising process, the dough must be formed by hand without the help of a rolling pin or other machine, and may be no more than 3 mm (1/8 in) thick. The pizza must be baked for 60-90 seconds in a 485 C (905 F) pizza oven. There are three official variants: Pizza Napoletana Marinara which is made with San Marzano DOP tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil, oregano and extra-virgin olive oil; Pizza Napoletana Margherita Extra made with pressed, peeled tomatoes or chopped fresh cherry tomatoes, sliced mozzarella di bufala DOP, fresh basil and extra-virgin olive oil; and Pizza Napoletana Margherita made with San Marzano DOP tomatoes, sliced mozzarella STG, or Fior di Latte Appennino, basil and extra-virgin olive oil

    Gluten Free- There are no restrictions, except that all ingredients must be Gluten-Free

    Make a cheese pizza and bring with you a little boy and tell everyone that asks that he is your nephew in a super disingenuous seeming way for the lolz.
    Take me down to the Parvati City where the reps are green and the girls are pretty. Take me home.

    STILL the most posts deleted. STILL the FBI is harassing me. STILL double the reputation of any poster. STILL quadruple the rep/post ratio of any poster. STILL BGC.

    i DVR'd this, and to be honest all the non-traditional pizzas were fail

    i would never would go into a pizzeria and order any of those - although i'd prolly try your chicago dog pie, hut

    the best pizza places will always be the ones who do the basics the best

    give me a good crust, sauce, cheese, and toppings

    "miss me with that gay shit" -- sonatine and everyone else (except plop, onestep, neverheeb, and 408)

    These type of pizzas are definitely a niche market. They have very high appeal to some and very low to others. It's one reason I usually market non-traditional pizzas as limited time offers. I get a nice sales bump from those that just have to try them and then again the next year when I bring them back for a limited time. This weekend only for example we will have a Corned beef and Cabbage pizza for St. Patty's Day. California is also probably the best market for non-traditional pizzas....CPK has had huge success for example.

    For the competition this year, I'm still deciding between a few options but after doing some taste testing with some customers and employees the front runner is a pulled pork pizza with a peach bourbon chipotle bbq sauce, topped with candied jalapenos, jalapeno infused bacon, gouda cheese. It is garnished with golden peppadews stuffed with peach balsamic pearls

    I'd fux with that, although i would sub out the bacon. There's alot of flavors, tangy, sweet, smokey. I like it.
