These awards are given to independent pizza restaurants (with 10 or fewer sites where pizza is the predominant item on the menu) that set a standard for others to follow. Judges will focus particularly on standards in terms of product, service and overall atmosphere. 

Gold awards will be presented to a maximum of six regional winners, in their restaurants in October, to maximise local publicity. A Platinum award will be presented to the restaurant considered to be outstanding and will be presented, on stage, at the awards dinner.

Entrants will be askedto provide a voucher for a meal for two, which will be used by ‘mystery shopper’ judges, who will report on the restaurant from a customer’s perspective – a copy of their reports will be available to entrants after the awards are presented, on request.
