Canadian Pizza Summit and Chef of the Year Competition is on for 2023!

At our first Pizza Summit West in June in Vancouver, we crowned Giuseppe Cortinovis as our Chef of the Year West!

We’re not done by a long shot. At Pizza Summit East in Toronto, we will host another exciting competition and trade show to name our newest Chef of the Year East! This exciting event happens at the Culinary Academy of our Host and Platinum Sponsor, Faema Canada on Monday, Oct. 30!

Creative pizza chefs will show us their best, tastiest, most creative pizza and shine a light on their pizzeria! Spots are limited (first come, first served), so if you’d like to throw your hat into the ring, register now and indicate your wish to compete.

Whether you compete or attend to learn and network, please join us to watch the chefs at work, see and taste the latest pizza trends in action, and talk shop (including your biggest challenges) with fellow pizzerias and our dedicated sponsors and exhibitors.

It’s free to pizzerias in Canada and it gets you:
  • A month’s worth of trend research all in one place!
  • The chance to compete in Faema’s state-of-the-art kitchen at 672 Dupont St., Toronto!
  • Pizza-focused sponsors and exhibitors to listen and help you improve your product and find solutions to your challenges!
  • The perfect place to talk shop (or sports or family) with pizzerias just like yours!
