The US Pizza Team are the Best in Dough

CONGRATULATIONS to US Pizza Team Captain and Galbani Professionale US Brand Ambassador Michael P. LaMarca

Michael LaMarca’s award winning pizza

of Master Pizza for winning the Best in the Midwest episode of Hulus Best In Dough! Facing off against talented Chicago and Detroit Style pizzaioli, LaMarca brought some flavors from The Land to represent his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.


A big congratulations also goes to USPT member and Galbani Professionale US Brand Ambassador Ali Haider of 786 Degrees Wood Fired Pizza Co., as well as USPT superstar Leah Scurto of PIZZALEAH in Windsor, Ca. for their wins and appearances on the Pizza Champs episode of Best in Dough. It was a tense battle between these champions, but Ali edged out Leah (her words!) once again with a double barrelled “People’s Choice” tie breaker vote. Congratulations also to Joe Carlucci of Valentina’s

Ali Haider’s winning pizza

Pizzeria & Wine Bar and the World Pizza Champions. Another great showing from a member of another great team.


All these Championship worthy pizzas were baked to perfection on pizza ovens from the US Pizza Team & the pizza

industries good friends at PizzaMaster. This team really brings out the best in the industry and their fellow USPT members. We could not be prouder of them! Congratulations!
