Six teams from Thai cooking schools and pizza shops are set to roll up their sleeves and get baking in the Great American Pizza Competition to be held by the United States Embassy next Thursday (November 10).
In the final round, the competitors are required to make pizzas from ingredients imported from the US under the concepts of “Real California Pizza”, “Wow American Pizza”, and “Plant Forward Pizza”.
The contest, to be held at EmQuartier shopping mall, is part of the annual Tasty USA Day event organised by the US Embassy in Thailand and the US Department of Agriculture to promote American food products in Thailand.
The California Cheese Advisory Board, US Wheat Associates, the Washington Apple Commission, US Meat Export Federations, and Thai importers of American food products will participate in this year’s event.
Among the panel of judges will be US Ambassador Robert F Godec, who will present awards to the winners in person.
In addition to the pizza-making contest, Tasty USA Day also has booths selling pizzas and imported American food products and beverages. The event is open from November 10 to 13 between 11am and 10pm.
