Who Makes the Best Pizza in Beijing?

Pizza is a hot topic, like politics or religion everyone has an opinion. So theBeijinger is back at it again and next week will launch their Pizza Cup 2015 in a brave attempt to determine who makes Beijing’s best slice.  This is a high stakes battle of mozzarella and tomato sauce.

After theBeijinger‘s “Battle of the Buns” Burger Cup (click to see this year’s burger winner!), they’ve launched straight from burgers to their other guilty-pleasure comfort food tournament – PIZZAAAAA!

This year’s Beijinger Pizza Cup Competition will once again battle it out between all the incredible amount of pizza options China’s capital has to offer and determine who will be crowned pizza champion of Beijing!

“That’s right folks, the Pizza Cup is back for 2015 and slice-for-slice it is going to be bigger and better than ever! We’re kicking off the festivities with the Beijinger Pizza Fest Launch Party, the biggest gathering of pizzas in 5,000 years of Chinese history – Robynne Tindall, theBeijinger’s Dining Editor

In addition to at least 15 of Beijing’s best pizza places to sample your way through, you can wash down all that pizza with a variety of beverages including beer, juices, wines and finish off with some delectable desserts! TheBeijinger has promised two full days of performances to keep you entertained just in case the overwhelming amount of pizza options wasn’t enough!
