Yorkshire Pizza maker wins Pizza Chef of the Year

LEEDS, U.K. - Nov. 15, 2021 - PRLog -- Dan Hall of Mozzafella has been crowned 'Pizza Chef of the Year' at the Annual PAPA awards.

Dan competed in 3 of the 4 pizza categories beating competition from the likes of Co-op, Pizza Pilgrims, and other independents throughout the uk, winning one round, and receiving a highly commended for another, before being crowned the overall 'Pizza Chef of the Year'.

Started by Dan in 2017 and being branded by Leeds-creative studio Few and Far in 2018, Mozzafella now caters at events all across the Yorkshire area serving tasty Neo-Neapolitan slices - a modern take on traditional Neapolitan pizzas with a light, airy crust.

Mozzafella won the 'Best Pizzeria 2019' at the Food Awards England, and since lockdown last year, Dan has focused on a frozen Neapolitan range stocked at the award winning Edwards St Bakery in Saltaire, as well as having raised over £1,700 for the Trussell trust food banks by organising a fundraising raffle.

"The past 18 months have been challenging to say the least, but I was absolutely thrilled to even be a part of the competition. I honestly didn't think I'd win, going up against so many veteran pizza makers from across the UK. I started in my own back garden with an Ooni pizza oven, to then to go on and win, feels unreal"

Dan is also a brand ambassador for Ooni, a company who have grown exponentially since the start of the pandemic, with pizza ovens being one of the must have lockdown accessories.

"Being able to work with Ooni, the company who got me started on my pizza journey is a dream come true, and it allows me to create and share recipes and advice with people all over the world which is something I love doing."

"I'd also like to say a special thanks to my friends & family, my amazing wife and kids, and the folks over at Few and Far who've supported me from day one and did an amazing job on my branding"
