SAVE THE DATE: 8th September at 6:30pm; the Best European Pizzerias and the Top Ten Chains
This is the second edition of the most followed, most anticipated, and most prestigious ranking in the world of pizza: that of the Best European Pizzerias which saw Ciro Salvo’s London based 50 Kalò at the top of the podium last year.
The worldwide health emergency postponed the event, which was initially slotted for the 28th of April at the Teatro San Babila in Milan, but it did not stop our panel of judges spread throughout the continent who returned to visit the pizzerias anonymously after an initial survey.
On the 8th of September we invite you to view the live streaming on our social channels (50TopPizza, 50TopItaly and LucianoPignataroWineBlog) and on those of our partners. The same countdown as our 50TopPizza Italy will be held for our European classification for the first time.
NEW THIS YEAR: THE FIRST EUROPEAN CLASSIFICATION OF THE BEST PIZZERIA CHAINS
The pizza sector is diversifying, and we at 50TopPizza must take this into consideration. This is why for the first time we have chosen ten chains who are committed to research into their raw materials and to quality. Above all, however, they are dedicated to the conservation of the traditional artisan methods in making the product, both in the dough and in the workmanship.
When a brand reaches five opened locations, we consider it to be a chain. Therefore, both the Italian and European pizzeria chains will have their own specific classification this year.
The crisis did not put a damper on the race towards quality, good ingredients, excellent service, nor stellar wine, beer and cocktail lists. It also did not stop the desire to invest and to commit to this challenging trade; one that is challenging but that allows for great satisfaction to the young generation of pizza chefs. This is the confirmation of the development of pizza in the Neapolitan style (but not exclusively so) in the Old Continent.
SO, SAVE THE DATE! ON THE 8TH OF SEPTEMBER AT 6.30PM OUR EXCITING LIVE TRANSMISSION WILL ANNOUNCE THE FINALISTS AND WINNERS.
