Munch your way to Italy with Pompeii
Pompeii hosts pizza eating competition for Dubai’s fun-loving foodies - winner to receive two airline tickets to Italy; Guinness world record attempt on the cards
If you’re always the first to polish-off your pizza when everyone else is still on their second or third slice, now is the time to harness your pizza-eating prowess and head to Pompeii for the chance to eat your way to a victorious vacation to the home of pizza – Italia!
A fun challenge is on the menu at the latest Italian restaurant in Dubai as Pompeii gears-up to host their first-ever pizza eating competition at the Roman-themed eatery where the winning gobbler will win two airline tickets to Italy.
What’s more, the Guinness World Records team have been informed of the event and are ready to crown a new record holder should any participant out-eat the current time of 1 minute and 9.36 seconds set by Japanese pizza guzzler Takeru Kobiyashi earlier this year.
Culinary competitors will be tasked with eating their way through a 12-inch margherita pizza – fresh from Pompeii’s distinctive wood-fired oven – in the quickest possible time, with every crumb and morsel of cheese and tomato duly scoffed.
Cheryl Vaughn, Director, Pompeii, said the event is sure to capture the stomach’s of Dubai: “We all love a good pizza, and we all know someone who’s finished before everyone else – so now is the time to get all of Dubai’s pizza gobblers in one place and see who is the fastest in the land!
“We’ve been in contact with the Guinness book of records, so the incentive to take part for Dubai’s foodies is two-fold: not only will the winner receive two tickets to the heart of pizza land, they have the opportunity to get their name inked into that most coveted of record books – by making pizza history here at Pompeii.”
The event will take place on June 2 at 5pm at Pompeii’s restaurant: “So there’s plenty of time to limber-up and get some necessary munching practice in at Pompeii by heading down to the restaurant for a few succulent trial-runs on our extensive range of wood-fired pizzas,” adds Vaughn.
