The Art of Pizza Acrobatics

Tony Gemignani, the owner of Tony’s Pizza Napoletana in San Fransico, California and a 12-time pizza world champion chats with Great Big Story about the art behind the competitive sport of pizza acrobatics.

“The world pizza champion describes his particular art form as “what a Harlem Globetrotter does with a basketball”—only with pizza dough. But while a basketball never loses its form, soft dough moves and changes shape as it flips through the air, around-the-neck, through-the-shoulders, behind-the-back … you get the idea. At the annual World Pizza Games, witness pizza acrobatics like you never imagined.”
