Did you know that National Pizza Month is celebrated every October in the US?
Pizzas... As some may say, a slice a day keeps the sad away. Originally from Italy, you'll find pizzerias serving and delivering fresh oven baked pizzas all over the world today. The truth is... Who can resist a freshly baked a classic pie with hearty marinara sauce, melty mozzarella and fresh basil (perhaps some anchovies)?
There has been some debate about the less conventional or non-traditional pizzas. The idea of putting pineapple in a pizza is probably unthinkable for Italians back in the old country. Yet, the Hawaiian is a proud staple in many Pizza Huts around the world. Innovative chefs have helped to elevate classic pizzas and also infused local flavours into them. Chicken Tandoori Pizza anyone?
This creative printable design challenge seeks to continue this culinary spirit of inventiveness. Let's design some fancy new world pizzas.
