My favourite pizza joint of all time is having a contest that is just awesome. It is called "Pizza Making Genius". I think they do this every year. Basically, you are the chef and can create a speciality pizza however you wish using ingredients they already have in store plus ONE new ingredient of your choice. You can also enter as many times as you want as long as your recipes are different each time.
If your speciality pizza gets chosen to win you will receive free pizza for a year, and have your recipe featured on the Toppers Pizza menus everywhere in Ontario. The contest is open to Canadian residents only, and closes March 10th.
As soon as my mom posted this contest we got right to work brain storming some ideas. We came up with a couple good ideas and I plan on entering them all. I don't think I've ever really entered a contest like this before, it will be exciting! I remember when I worked at Toppers about 3-4 years ago this contest came along and I remember having to learn the new pizza recipe that was created by some lucky resident. Sadly, I cannot remember what is it was or what was on it but I do remember it being pretty tasty.
We had a bunch of ideas flying around but the tricky part is thinking of a recipe that no one has yet using only the ingredients they already have plus one. Its easy to think up ideas but each one would require two+ new ingredients so we had to think really hard. The two recipes I decided on entering were....
Stuffed Pepper Pizza
Classic Tomato Base
3 Cheese Blend
Garlic & Herb Seasoning
New Item: Croutons
Extra Cheese on top
Pulled Pork Pizza
Classic Tomato Base
Roasted Red Peppers
New Item: Pulled Pork
BBQ Sauce (for marinating pork)
Drizzle Ranch & Hot Sauce on top.
Let me know what you think, could we improve them? Anyone outside Canada have some more ideas that I could enter? Hopefully someone else doesn't steal my ideas. Good luck to all entering the contest.
