World pizza acrobatic champions share secrets in Dubai




the pizza dough being tossed high up in the air on stage won’t end up on your plate if you’re dining at Mercato this week.

That disc of flying dough is just part of a show by seasoned pizzaiolos (Italian for ‘pizza makers’) from the Italian National Team of Acrobatic Pizza Makers.

“Remember, it’s all up to the dough, not up to us. You have to handle the dough with care but with speed, because it breaks easily.” Danilo Pagano, pizzaiolo.
