Pizza Chef Judging Process

Here's how the Pizza Chef Competition process works.

Recipe Submission

All chefs are requested to submit one recipe in each category together with a photograph and the following information.

  • Chef’s unique competition Number
  • Pizza Name
  • Description of Pizza
  • Competition category
  • Suggested RRP
  • The target market - e.g. restaurant or take away
  • List of ingredients

The deadline for recipe submission is Wednesday 24/07. 

The recipes will be sent anonymously to the sponsors who will consider the following factors in choosing their finalists:-

  • Innovative use of the Sponsors’ Products
  • Commercial Viability
  • Presentation
  • Taste and Texture.
  • Quality of the base

The finalists will cook their pizzas in front of the judging panel and live audience at Pizza Pilgrims, Camden on Thursday, 7 November 2024.

Each category winner will receive a trophy and cheque for £250 and the overall winner (who will be selected from the category winners) will receive a trophy, a winner’s cheque and of course the kudos of being crowned  ‘Pizza Chef of the Year’ together with substantial publicity.

The overall winner will be announced at the awards dinner on Thursday, 7 November 2024.
