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!
