Dough-Tossing Acrobats Lit Up Instagram
During the week of Pizza Today’s Virtual Pizza Expo, April 6-10, we joined forces with the World Pizza Champions to bring some of the excitement of the World Pizza Games into your homes.
“We are in an unprecedented time,” says World Pizza Champion Ken Bryant. “It is a time of uncertainty, stress, and a loss of connection. While the world as we know it has come to a standstill, we are all doing our part to ensure the safety of our family, friends, and neighbors. Doing our part meant that we did not get to see each other this year at the annual Pizza Expo and the World Pizza Games as Pizza Today had to make the tough, but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 Expo. Thankfully the World Pizza Champions had the opportunity to partner with Pizza Today to bring you the Quarantine Pizza Games, which was open to acrobatic dough tossers of all ages.”
Scores of pizza dough tossing acrobats submitted routines on Instagram for a chance to win the Quarantine Pizza Games. “We had privilege of judging some of the best acrobatic dough tossers from around the world who submitted their one-minute acrobatic videos to Instagram (#quarantinepizzagames) during the competition time period.
“The judging was tough as everyone came out of quarantine bringing their A game,” Bryant continues. “Thank you to everyone who participated and to those who cheered on our competitors.
Watch as we reveal 1st, 2nd and 3rd:
“Although the competition is over, it is not too late to submit an acrobatic dough tossing video,” Bryant says. “Get off the couch, turn off that TV, and get those doughs spinning. Don’t forget to tag your video with #quarantinepizzagames. On behalf of the World Pizza Champions, we look forward to seeing you live and in person in 2021 at the Pizza Expo and World Pizza Games.”
