The search for the UK’s best pizza begins

The National Pizza Awards is back for 2018 to find the best pizza in the UK.

Entries are now open for chefs across casual dining and quick service restaurants, pubs, bars and hotels to submit their most popular pizza, to be in with a chance of winning £1,000 and the title of National Pizza of the Year.

Once shortlisted, 16 finalists will compete in a live cook-off of two rounds – firstly cooking their own pizza for the judges, followed by creating a technical pizza made up of a specific set of ingredients supplied on the day.

Think you’ve got a crust above the rest and a sauce to be reckoned with? Enter your perfect pizza now.

The closing date for entries is Friday 24 August, with the National Pizza Awards final taking place on Wednesday 3 October at the Islington Metal Works in London.
