Pizzalympics – A Quick Intro

Pizzalympics kicked off this month with a bang. Before I get into the nitty-gritty, I thought it practical to give everyone a quick break down of how it works.


Olympizza? Pizzalympics is catchier.


Step 1: Everyone arrive at chosen restaurant.

Step 2: Everyone order and consume alcohol (some more than others *nudge nudge wink wink*).

Step 3: Order pizza. Only pizza. Do not arrive and start whining about a dough/cheese/deliciousness intolerance. You will be asked to leave.

Step 4: Eat pizza.

Step 5: Loudly scream across the table (as any Italian worth their salt would do) that your pizza is the best/worst and demand tasters from everyone else.

Step 6: Score drunkenly honestly.


Every judge is presented with a score card.

There are three categories, each scored out of 5, as well as a comments section for those of us who like using our words:

  1. Base
  2. Toppings
  3. Awesomeness (note: this is a general category and you are not limited to your specific pizza when scoring. For example, if the sangria was good 5/5…. Just saying!)

Yours truly will tally the scores at the end of each round and come up with an average score for the chosen location. I’ll also throw in a few choice comments and pictures for good measure.

And there you have it.

In 6 months time we will have eaten at some of Joburgs “best” pizza places and we will have crowned a victor. Yippee!

We may also have gained a few extra kilos and undergone 1 or 2  liver transplants *sangria*

Next up, Round 1: Trabella
