The Caputo Cup

The Caputo Cup

Sponsored by Antimo Caputo Flour

Discover the Best Neapolitan & US Style Pizzas at the Caputo Cup Pizza Competition

This annual pizza-making competition sponsored by Antimo Caputo Flour is expanding this year to five divisions: Traditional, Non Traditional, Pizza Napoletana/STG, Pan and Gluten-Free. The 2019 competition at Pizza & Pasta Northeast featured more competitors for the sixth annual USA Caputo Cup. Antimo Caputo is known for its double zero flour and other products for pizza restaurants. Pizza makers from throughout the U.S. will bake-off in front of a panel of judges on both days of Pizza & Pasta Northeast — and event attendees were able to sit in and see how some of the best in the business prepare their pies. Winners of Traditional, Non-Traditional, Pan and Gluten-Free won $2,000 and a trophy; the Pizza Napoletana champion received $3,000 and a trophy.

Competitors brought their own dough and ingredients and then assembled their pizzas in view of the audience. Registered attendees observed their techniques and heard the contestants explain how they make and bake what the judges taste.
