Australia, land of pizzas and pizza makers

In the collective unconscious Australia is synonymous with big spaces, the land of freedom, large distances, desert, ocean and kangaroos ... and now even pizza!

Yes, our beloved tricolor pizza is colonizing the home of Rugby, meat and good wine, thanks to the initiative of Italian pizza makers and the tenacity and courage of the companies in our country that step by step begin to make that distant land a small corner of the beautiful country.

The magazine Pizza e Pasta Italiana has been in recent weeks to Sidney Fine Food, the leading trade show for the food service sector of the city, both to document and gather information about a huge growth in reality is to sponsor the fourth edition of Pizza Revolution Grand Prize, competition open to all pizza makers and valid as a stage of pre selection of the Pizza World Championship 2016.
