The US Pizza Cup events are U.S. Pizza Team recruitment competitions. If you win in your event, the prize is a one year membership as a Premiere Member on the U. S. Pizza Team, as well as a trip to compete internationally, representing the USPT. This requires you have no current team affiliations, and to compete at least once a year representing the USPT in competition under no other team affiliations to maintain the Premiere Membership (excluding product sponsorships). Failing to compete could result in demotion of membership. If you feel you cannot perform the duties required upon winning, please contact Brian Hernandez at brian@pmq.com, or 662-234-5481 x129
