National Pizza Awards open for entries

Entries to the 2021 National Pizza Awards are now open, with chefs across the UK invited to submit their perfect pizza recipe.

Open to chefs from restaurants, pubs, bars, hotels and street food businesses, the awards will showcase the very best pizzas to the industry for a chance for it to be named the National Pizza of the Year.

Chefs will also face technical challenges using specific products for the chance to win other coveted titles including Pizza Chef of the Year.

“The dramatic rise of delivery and takeaway in the last 18 months has only served to increase the popularity of pizza across the UK, so there’s never been a more exciting time for this dish” says Rosanna Spence, editor of Dine Out, which organises the awards.

“We look forward to reading your entries and then celebrating the very best signature creations together later this year.”

Entries close on 10 September, with the live final scheduled for November at Islington Metal Works, London.
