It’s the Final Countdown … in the Porcupine Ridge Pizzeria Challenge

The countdown to establish South Africa’s favourite pizzeria has begun, with votes in the Porcupine Ridge Pizzeria Challenge closing on Friday, September 30.

So far it is estimated that over 280 000 pizzas and 5 000 bottles of wine have been consumed as 94 restaurants nationwide battle it out to be crowned the country’s most-loved pizzeria. More than 40 000 votes have been cast.

Says Dupre Nell, Sales and Marketing Co-ordinator for Porcupine Ridge: “The heat is on as the voting gets more fierce during the final 30 days of the competition. We urge loyal patrons to vote for their favourite establishment and make sure their pizzas are recognised as amongst the best in the country.

 “We are delighted with the results of the challenge to date. It’s been great to see new restaurants taking part this year from all corners of South Africa, including Bloemfontein, Potchefstroom and Amamzintoti. It shows that you can still emerge as a champion if you are a small pizzeria and not situated in one of the major centres,” adds Nell.

The Porcupine Ridge Pizzeria Challenge runs until September 30, 2022, with the Top 10 and the ultimate winner announced in mid-October.
