National Kid’s Pizza Making Contest at A Slice of New York in San Jose

Kids can demonstrate their pizza making skills and win great prizes at the first national pizza making contest held at independent pizzerias nationwide on Saturday, October 7. A Slice of New York, Lindsay Olives and The World Pizza Champions Inc. challenge children, ages 12 and younger, to make a kid-sized pie with their favorite ingredients, including olives, at the pizzeria, where it will be baked and judged.

A Slice of New York was selected from thousands of pizzerias nation wide to host this competition in San Jose.

Space is limited, so kids are encouraged to sign-up immediately by visiting A Slice of New York.

If the sign-up sheet is full, kids can participate in an online pizza making contest by going to www.lindsayolives.com after October 1 and read the rules to submit their tasty recipes.

About two-thirds of U.S. adults (65%) consider pizza to be among their favorite meals to eat with their family, according to a recent survey commissioned by Lindsay Olives and conducted by Harris Interactive®. When asked about favorite pizza toppings, nearly half of these pizza makers (46%) selected olives as one of their favorite pizza toppings.

According to Tony Gemignani of World Pizza Champions, olives are a “must have topping” when it comes to making pizza. “When it comes to pizzerias, olives are one of the most important ingredients on a pizza,” says Tony. “All of the World Pizza Champion’s pizzerias use olives!”
