La Pizza Week is officially making its debut in cities across Canada and it’s definitely not something you want to miss! As explained by Daily Hive, this country-wide pizza event is brought to you by the creators of La Poutine Week and Le Burger Week.

Here’s how it works:

Pizza restaurants in each city can sign up and create a special pizza that will be available for dine-in, takeout, and delivery from May 1 to May 7.

Then, customers can vote for their favourite pizza on LaPizzaWeek.com. Restaurants across Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan are invited to participate. You can now view participating restaurants here but be sure to stay in the loop because restaurants can continue to sign up.

Here are some of the pizza creations I’m most excited to try out!

Bowel Island Pizza is one of my all time favourites. They will be featuring a Pear & Brie pizza with thinly sliced Anjou pears with roasted onions & garlic, mozzarella & chunks of creamy brie cheese melted on top.

Kozu Sushi Pizza’s sushi pizza will have a spicy mayonnaise spread topped with Kozu Sushi Pizza’s special San Fransokyo mix made of chopped scallop, imitation crab, and masago. Decorated with Japanese mayonnaise drizzle, and garnished with spun cucumber, masago, and black sesame seeds. This one sounds very interested and I’m looking forward to giving it a whirl!
