Among its many contributions to Western culture, Italy gave us Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and pizza. More recently, the popularity of pizza has spawned a new art form that those two famously eccentric geniuses likely never anticipated: the pizza portrait, a technique that transforms a plain pizza crust into a surreal, almost ghostlike image.

It might be a bit of a stretch to compare Domenico Crolla and Wilhelm Rodriguez to those great Old World masters. But the two pizzaiolos—Crolla owns Bella Napoli (bellanapoliglasgow.com) in Glasgow, Scotland, and Rodriguez is proprietor of Papa’s Pizza in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico—are definitely pioneers in the burgeoning art form of pizza portraiture. They’re also friendly rivals who have parlayed their skills into popular acclaim and industry renown, using pizza art to promote their restaurants and attract more business.

We thought it would be fun to share the pizza artists’ masterpieces and test our readers’ knowledge of celebrity culture in the process. Take this quiz online, and you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $100 Visa debit card!
