National Pizza Awards

Entries for the 2024 National Pizza Awards open on Monday 17 June.

This event is open to chefs from across the restaurant, quick service, pubs, bars and hotels industries – giving pizza professionals the chance to showcase their perfect pizza to the trade.

The 16 finalists compete in a series of challenges, starting with cooking their signature pizza for industry judges, before creating a technical pizza made up from a specific selection of ingredients from the event sponsors. Competitors will also take part in a vegan round.

In 2023, Zerodegrees, which has sister venues in Blackheath, Cardiff and Reading, won the event with a signature dish called the ‘Cinghiale’, featuring fior di latte cheese, wild boar salami, ‘Nduja, roquito pepper, parmesan, tomato sauce and fresh basil.
