the pizza champion – Ernest Mandle

For the first time ever, the Global Pizza Challenge moved to Africa’s Big 7,  the continent’s premier food & beverage show, where passionate independent pizza chefs demonstrated their gastronomic masterpieces first-hand.

The competition celebrated its 10th birthday this year and the South African winner, Ernest Mandle, walked away with a trophy, 15,000 Rand in cash and will head off for the international final at the end of the year.

Aspiring pizza makers from across the globe tantalised the taste buds of our international panel of judges and delighted thousands with their delectable pizzas creations.
