Since pizza cones are both a fast food and a fun one, they’re a hot new item for pizzerias and takeout shops. Just about any oven can turn out a crisp, cheesy cone. PCI Frozen Foods will set operators up with everything they need to get started, including chef support. PCI’s pizza cones can be ordered from a number of distributors in the U.S., so contact them to find one.

The U.S. Pizza Team welcomes Ferrarelle, its newest Gold Sponsor

Ferrarelle is excited to announce their new partnership with the US.. Pizza Team & PMQ Pizza Magazine. It seems like a simple fit to pair Italy’s true Neapolitan 100% naturally sparkling mineral water with the passionate pizziolos of the USPT. This team shares the same authentic and artisanal values of the pizza world that Ferrarelle prided themselves with since 1893. We look forward to developing this partnership with the USPT further along with providing the pizza world with the ultimate Neapolitan thirst quencher – Ferrarelle!

Stop by and visit Ferrarelle at the Atalanta booth  #1247 at the Pizza Expo!
