Last chance to enter National Pizza Awards!

Entries to the 2023 National Pizza Awards close on Friday (29th), with chefs from across the restaurant and street food sectors invited to submit their ultimate pizza recipes in a bid to be crowned best in the UK. The awards, headline sponsored by Birrificio Angelo Poretti, will showcase the hospitality industry's very best pizza purveyors, with finalists taking part in a live cooking showdown to be in with a chance of winning the top National Pizza of the Year title. 

Entrants will also be tasked with a technical challenge that will see them whip up the best dish from a specific selection of sponsor ingredients, with the winner claiming the coveted Pizza Chef of the Year crown. They will also take part in a vegan round sponsored by Purezza.

"Every year, this event gets bigger and better, and we can't wait to fire up the ovens for another incredible day of pizza praise and celebration," said  Genna Ash-Brown, editor of our sister publication Dine Out magazine, which organises the event alongside OOH . 

"The 2023 competition already feels fresh and exciting, bringing its dough-kneading, cheese-topping action to London's Big Penny Social for the very first time. To those who make it through, bring your best game face and a healthy appetite – it's the pizza event of the year and one you certainly won't want to miss!"

Entries close on 29th September, with the live final taking place on 21st November. Head over to and submit your signature recipe today!
