Pizza Expo 2019 and an Interview with Chef Leo Spizzirri

Mar 29, 2019Posted by Forno Bravo

Chef Leo Spizzirri, Master Istruttore and Co-Founder of the North American Pizza and Culinary Academy, hosted several live cooking demonstrations in the Forno Bravo booth at the 2019 International Pizza Expo. Some of his helpers included 4 Master Chefs from the Schola Italiana Pizzaioli, the oldest pizza school in Italy. It was a treat to have so much talent and skill in our booth!

The Expo draws in over 8,000 attendees and 500 vendors for three days of all things pizza! People come from across the globe to learn, taste, network, and get inspired. 2019 was the Pizza Expo’s 35th year running and it is now the largest pizza show in the world.

Pizza Party with Chef Leo and the Masters in Full Swing

We caught up with Chef Leo for an interview to talk about his experience this year. Combined with captured footage of his “International Pizza Party” that rocked the show and attracted a huge crowd, you’ll get a good flavor of the energy of the week. (Watch for the 2018 acrobatic pizza tossing world champions who paid us a visit as well.) Enjoy the fun!
