Women in Pizza is a movement that empowers women in the pizza industry to share their stories, display their talents, inspire innovations, and connect with one another and the world. Their contribution to the pizza community has been vital to the advancement of the pizza industry. The organization’s vision is to Celebrate, Engage and Inspire, to grow a social movement that gives a voice to the underrepresented female segment of pizzaioli, and to inspire more women to follow their pizza passion and join the industry. It was co-founded by Alexandra Mortati and supported by Orlando Foods. Find the group at and on Instagram @womeninpizza

In March 2021, Christy Alia of @RealCleverFood founded and launched the popular and successful #WomensPizzaMonth campaign, which encourages everyone to join in this global pizza party by dedicating pizzas to women who inspire them and using #WomensPizzaMonth to highlight various women pizza makers and bring attention to the brilliant work they are doing in the pizza world.  Follow the hashtag: #womenspizzamonth on Instagram.

The I Need Pizza Club is a social audio community that connects pizza professionals and home pizza makers from all over the world.
