The Pizza Chef of the Year Grand Final took place at The European Pizza and Pasta Show at London Olympia on Thursday 15th November 2018.

Chefs travelled from all over the UK to take part in the competition in their quest to be named the Pizza Chef of the Year 2018. Standards were high as the chefs battled it out in front of a live audience to be judged by our panel of industry judges which included Michelin chef Theo Randall. With four separate categories the chefs showed real creativity using the sponsor ingredients. From delicious Sam Browne Foods Fennel and Pork Mince topped pizza to authentic Margherita style pizza using Whitworth l'Aquila Pizza Flour the pizzas wowed. A real taste of Italy was brought to the competition with the Supertops Tulip Ventricina Salami and of course no pizza is complete without creamy mozzarella from Ornua. The chefs showed real innovation with their pizzas and choosing the winners was a difficult decision for the judges.

We are delighted to announce the Overall Pizza Chef of the Year is:

  •  Roberto Mannocchi from Tony Macoroni with Dolce Sorpresa

The winners in each category are:
