Pizza with the Pros Series at Eataly

Pizza with the Pros Series at Eataly

Join us at La Pizza & La Pasta for an exciting event series as Italian culinary traditions and New England’s love of sports combine!

During our Pizza with the Pros series, some of New England’s most decorated athletes will trade their jerseys for pizzaioli (pizza maker) aprons and step up to our authentic Neapolitan wood-fired ovens. Pizza-making skills will be put to the test as each athlete competes for the title of “Best Pizzaiolo Pro.”

This never-before-seen pizza-making showdown will allow guests to enjoy each athlete’s featured pizzas (along with paired wines, of course!). Throughout the evening, event-goers will indulge in plenty of pizza, vote for their favorites one, and have their photo taken with the participating athletes.

If you can't make it to the event, come back to La Pizza & La Pasta the entire month after! Each athlete's pizza will be featured on the restaurant's menu (and listed under their names!) for you to try. Be sure to post your favorite online using #PizzawiththePros!

And the best part of all? Portions of proceeds from tickets and pizza sales will go to each athlete's charity of choice. 

Join us for Pizza with the Pros on June 26 as two former Boston Celtics, Brian Scalabrine and Dana Barros, go head-to-head! Both players will be playing to benefit the Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation.
