As part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, the AVPN Pizza Festival will head to Australia for the first time.

The event will offer guests the chance to learn what makes traditional Neapolitan pizza so special, taste pizza from top pizzaioli from around the world, and find out which Australian pizza makers will get inducted into the prestigious international pizza organization, the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN).

Australian President and owner of the 400 Gradi group, Johnny Di Francesco, has overseen the delivery of six wood fired ovens to keep hungry crowds satisfied during the festival.

Adding to the festival atmosphere, there will be Italian themed musicians and entertainers, including comedian Joe Avati, across the weekend, as well as a variety of pizza masterclasses on offer.

THAT'S AMORE CHEESE is one of the supports of AVPN Pizza Festival.

If you are in Melbourne make sure you head down to the Crown for what will be a fun filled day.
