Pizza Dough To Fly At Tossing Event

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The dough will be flying next week during the Acrobatic Pizza Tossing event at the New York Pizza Show Nov. 1-2.

Champion pizza tossers will be throwing pies behind their backs, under their legs and kicking them off their foot as part of the event.

Pie tosser Chris Green says spectators will see some “ridiculous” – meaning good – tossers, some juggling three pizza doughs at a time and others bouncing them off their foot, although Green admits, “Italians don’t really like that move.”

Green has even heard a fellow competitor might set his dough on fire. He says, “Now that would be death-defying.”

Although the word “acrobatic” has a somewhat dangerous tone to it, Green says the pizza flinging with be relatively safe, with only a few tossers “getting some flour in their eyes.”

It won’t be all fun and dough though. The winners of the competition will visit Italy in April to represent the U.S. for the 2006 World Pizza Championship.
