Congratulations to the 2009 U.S. Pizza Team on bringing home these World Titles at the 18th Annual World Pizza Championship:
Silver: Team Acrobatics
3rd Place: Freestyle Dough Throwing - Juan Hermosillo. Hermosillo stars in that pizzalicous new Visa commercial.
4th Place: Freestyle Dough Throwing - Ryan LaRose
I'm not so great at tossing dough, but I'd love to really learn how. It takes a lot of practice. Luckily for all you wannabe pizzaiolos out there you can get glow-in-the-dark, fake pizza dough (!!!) to practice with from Pro Dough USA or ThrowDough. They both come with a "how to" DVD. Ridiculous!
Get really good at it and you could make some dough... get it? According to the US Pizza Team's website, to book just one acrobatic show by a two man pizza team will cost you $1500! These are skilled professionals ladies and gentlemen. They also occasionally teach pizza spinning classes.
