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.
