Pizzacraft Announces Second Annual Pizzafest Event

Pizzacraft®, the premiere line of at-home pizza-making tools and accessories is excited to announce the second annual Pizzafest, an all-you-can-eat pizza festival taking place on Saturday, October 17th in Berkeley, California. Guests can sample pizzas cooked on the over 20 roaring pizza ovens and vote for the People’s Choice Award. The event will also include demos of pizza making tools and techniques, shopping at the Pizzacraft store, two beer gardens, and a Kids’ Fun Zone. Best of all, the proceeds from this event all go toward Pizzacraft’s favorite charity, Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency, which serves the homeless, poor, and disabled in the Bay Area.

Tickets for the festival are now available for purchase; online tickets are $10 for adults, while door tickets are $20 (cash only). The ticket price gets guests unlimited, all-you-can-eat slices from the competing teams as well as $5 off their next purchase. Children under 12 years are free when accompanied by an adult. Adults over 21 will be given wristbands to enter the Lagunitas Brewing Company and Fieldworks Brewing Company tents, which will pour $5 beers. All sales will also go toward B.O.S.S., who will be there to raise awareness for their fight against the root causes of poverty and homelessness, and to raffle off a pizza oven gift set for $1 per ticket.

Guests inspired by all their taste-testing have the chance to learn how to make pizza themselves, and to shop for pizza-making tools and accessories. There will be demos of the Pizzeria Pronto Outdoor Pizza Oven, a revolutionary propane-powered pizza oven that’s lightweight and portable, but still reaches temperatures up to 700ºF or more and can cook a pizza in 5 minutes. (All cook teams will be using the ovens for their own creations!) For those who like a little smoke as a topping, the PizzaQue Pizza Kit for Kettle Grills, which converts a charcoal kettle-style grill into a pizza oven, will also be demonstrated.

In between wolfing down slices, kids can take a break to play in the Kids’ Fun Zone. Children can have their faces painted, play mini carnival games, or create their own paper “pizzas” at the crafts table. Guests of all ages can snap selfies at the Pizzafest photobooth to make their Facebook friends wish they were there!
