new for 2017
New for 2017 is the Pizza Judging Panel. This panel of judges has been carefully selected by the YYC Pizza Week Team and Calgary Meals on Wheels, to try your pizzas and offer feedback on each one.
Each of the judges will be assigned 2-4 restaurants to visit between Friday September 22 – Friday September 29 and taste the YYC Pizza Week Entry. After they have done this they are asked to fill out a survey.
WHY A PIZZA JUDGING PANEL
The purpose of the Pizza Judging Panel is to judge each participating pizza week creation in pre defined categories to keep the voting fair for all participating destinations and give every one a chance to win! It's really about fun here to.
Judges will be offering their feedback via survey monkey and all scores will be tallied at the end of YYC Pizza Week. We will announce winners in a variety of categories!
A few categories they will be judging on:
Flavour of Pizza
In house promotion and knowledge of pizza by staff
Each participating location will only receive one judge. Winning categories and locations will be announced once YYC Pizza Week is over.
