David Conti, owner of Red Planet Pizza & BBQ.  After 10 years of doing Kansas City Barbeque Society & New England Barbeque Society Grilling Competitions along with my Barbeque catering, I decided this past year to start doing onsite Pizza catering parties. I entered my first pizza competition at the 2017 Caputo Cup in Atlantic City, I enjoyed it so much that I followed it up by competing in Las Vegas at the International Pizza Expo which I placed 3rd in the North East. After watching the World Championships from Parma, Italy this past April I made it a Goal that I wanted to compete at it one day!  I then entered the USPT West Coast competition with a Grand Prize of going to Italy to compete. My dream then became a reality by winning the West Coast Competition! Then it was back to Atlantic City for the Caputo Cup which I placed 2nd in the Non-traditional division. I am very honored to be part of the USPT and look forward to competing and expanding my Onsite Pizza Catering business in the next year.
