UK Vegans: Enter the Create Your Pizza Challenge @ Pizza Express by 9/13!

August 30th, 2010 2:57 am by Kelly


Via The Vegan Society, I learned that the UK-based restaurant chain Pizza Express is hosting a Create Your Pizza Challenge. From now through September 13, contestants can enter their favorite pizza recipe for a chance to win £5,000:

We’re searching for the nation’s next favourite pizza. Whether it’s an old family recipe, an innovative topping combination or a whole new shape for the base, we want to hear about it.

The winner will have their pizza featured on our menu in restaurants across the country and earn a £5,000 cash prize.

Talent is hidden everywhere, and occasionally a suggestion comes along which is just too good to pass up. When one of our first pizzaiolos created his ideal pizza using spicy beef, the Sloppy Giuseppe was born. It’s now one of the most popular pizzas on our menu.

So get creative. Then enter online or by picking up an entry form from any of our restaurants. A panel of judges will pick their top five pizzas, then it’s over to a public vote to pick a winner.

You can view the full terms and conditions here. Suffice it so say, the contest is only open to UK residents – so, in the event that you’re not eligible to enter, don’t despair! Spread the word instead. *wink*

Pizza Express was kind enough to highlight The Vegan Society’s submission – which involves four different quarters, each inspired by the flavors of a different European culture – on its Facebook page, along with a photo of founder Donald Watson:

The Vegan Society have entered the ‘Taste the world tapas-style’ pizza to our pizza challenge. It features four quarters each with a unique taste of international cuisine:

Italian: Sun-blushed tomatoes, olives & artichoke hearts
French: A tomato and garlic base with green beans, capers & red pepper
Greek: Olives, yellow peppers, caramelized onions & cherry tomatoes
British: Asparagus with baby-leaf spinach, parsley & chestnut mushrooms

What do you think? What does your dream pizza look like?

As you may have already surmised, mine involves black olives, fresh and sundried tomatoes, Lightlife Smart Links and Bacon, and plenty of Daiya and Follow Your Heart cheese!

* A family-friendly, “pre-crawl” event is scheduled from 10AM to 1PM in the Buzzard Beach parking lot. The first 50 attendees will receive a free “doggy bag,” and there will also be a “doggy wash” as well as an adoption fair. For the kiddos: face painting and bounce houses!

* The Pub Crawl takes place from 2PM to 5PM, with an official after hours party at Kelly’s bar. A $10 bracelet will score you drink specials at participating bars and restaurants, including:

Westport Cafe & Bar
Californos
McCoys
Foundry
Harpo’s
Kelly’s
ONE80
Joe’s Pizza
Dark Horse
Riot Room

$20 advance tickets are available, which include a bracelet and a SNKC t-shirt!

For more details, email or call Tamara at SNKC: tamara [at] snkc.net or 816-353-0940.

If you’d like to help out, SNKC is still in need of volunteers: http://bit.ly/aQc4MU

SNKC operates a number of essential programs in the KC area, including a free animal companion food pantry; low-cost spay and neuter programs; low-cost vaccinations and select veterinary services; and a variety of “pet” outreach services, including both education and veterinary and material assistance to low-income animal companion guardians.

If you’re unable to attend the crawl – or would like to do more to help – please consider making a donation to SNKC to ensure that it can continue providing these vital services! Money is awesome (and sorely needed), but donations of animal care items and office supplies are great, too. Check out SNCK’s wishlist for more.
