Entertainment: Montreal's very first La Pizza Week kicks off May 1st

The ever-so-popular "Le Burger Week" and "La Poutine Week" extend their reigns as Canada’s largest restaurant festivals with a new addition to the family: La Pizza Week. Presented by Saputo and delivered by SkipTheDishes!, La Pizza Week runs from May 1st until May 7th - it’s a pizza party with hundreds of restaurants across Canada.

The week-long festival is a celebration for pizza-lovers across the country, with accessibility to restaurants through SkipTheDishes delivery. This interactive national community event supports local restaurants and their pizza creations, a press release promises, and there are participants from every province in the country.

Each restaurant will be encouraged to create a unique pizza at a special price. Pizza-lovers across the nation will engage with the festival by visiting or ordering from participating restaurants and, as always, fans can vote for their favourite pizzas directly on www.lapizzaweek.com. Other restaurant winners will be crowned for fun bragging rights in the following categories: most outrageous pizza, the judge’s choice, as well as awards given out by partners by Skip and Saputo.

"La Poutine Week in February was our biggest festival ever, and now the timing for La Pizza Week is perfect," said Na’eem Adam, co-founder of the event, in the same release. "We got overwhelmingly positive feedback from restaurants and fans and felt a responsibility to contribute even more to our mission: help local restaurant communities."
