For National Pizza Month, we here at PMQ wanted to engage our readers’ creativity, and what better way to do so than letting them create our National Pizza Month cover art?

During the last weeks of August, the call went out to pizzaioli and artists alike; create the cover of PMQ’s October issue and help us celebrate National Pizza Month! We received numerous entries from far and wide for a chance to win $500 and become the face of this month’s issue, with New York City artist Mike A. winning the grand prize! Submissions included a range of artistic and photographic styles, reflecting the varied nature of pizza itself. Presented here are a few of our other favorites.
