The U.S. Pizza Team was founded in 2000 with the goal of bringing competition and excitement to the pizza industry. Since its formation, the U.S. Pizza Team has participated in an international event every year, most frequently at the World Pizza Championship in Parma, Italy. Ranging from culinary masters to dough tossing phenoms, the Pizza Team renews the passion of those in the industry year after year.
Since its inception, it has been producing winners -a lot of winners- from repeat gold medalist Tony Gemignani, who competed with the team for years before venturing out on his own, to the squad that won the World Pizza Championship’s Team Acrobatics category in 2011, and most recently, Jamie Culliton’s first place freestyle acrobatics win in 2016 and back-to-back silver wins in 2014 & 2015.
