PIZZA COOK-OFF

The OUA and University of Siena Pizza Cook-off is one of the most acclaimed events by OUA students because it allows them to meet others, get to know their Italian peers and have fun giving vent to their creativity and their culinary arts.

The contest includes mixed teams of Italian and American students, while the OUA staff members make up the jury that judges the pizzas in terms of taste, aesthetics, and presentation.

The final pizza presentations often include songs, dances, and improvisations and always end up with laughter, fun and the pleasure of being together. The winning team is awarded with a series of prizes and the honor of having made the tastiest, most beautiful pizza! An appointment not to be missed and good for everyone!
