Great Brighton Pizza Competition
Following the enormous success of last year’s Great Brighton Ice Cream competition, we’ve challenged primary school children across the city to get creative and design a new pizza.
Children and teachers have been sending in their drawings, and we’ve already received over 500 entries before we even went to press so it looks like we’re well underway in beating our massive 1,114 entries from 2011.
The submissions for the competition close on Friday 9 March, when our panel of pizza experts including Sue Addis from Donatello and Analiese Doctrove from local childen’s charity Rockinghorse, will whittle
the entries down to a final three pizzas that will then be added to the menu at Donatello to buy during the festival week. The best selling pizza will be crowned champion at 5pm on Friday 6 April on the Live Food Show stage in the Corn Exchange. You’ll be able to buy the winning pizza from Donatello throughout the summer with a donation made to Rockinghorse with each sale.
