The Pizza Hall of Fame celebrates the oldest and most successful pizzerias across the United States. Sponsored by PMQ Pizza Magazine, the Pizza Industry Business Magazine, the Pizza Hall of Fame aims to identify and preserve the evolving history and traditions of America’s pizza culture. Its membership consists of pizzerias, typically in business for 50 years or longer, that are recognized as industry landmarks and institutions in their towns and cities. In addition to honoring these successful businesses and their owners, the Pizza Hall of Fame also recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the pizza restaurant industry.
The U.S. Pizza Team was established in 2000 as a vehicle to further promote the pizza industry and independent pizzerias through friendly competition; live and televised performances; team and individual appearances; and more. Team members gain a sense of camaraderie with fellow pizzaioli, which indirectly affects their stores-and their customers-in a positive way. Learn more at http://uspizzateam.com/.
