At melslife, we’re big on finding fun, inexpensive forms of entertainment with family and friends, and judging pizza is on the top of our list. What’s great is that no one can really prove that one pizza is better than another pizza because everyone has specific, individual tastes.
How to Organize?
- Invite your guests at a specific time and tell them the importance of everyone arriving at the same time
- Guests should bring their favorite pizza. You can limit it to cheese only, pepperoni, mushroom, vegetarian, or any topping they want
- Pizza can be purchased at a grocery store, pizzeria, delivered by a chain or local pizza parlor, or can be freshly homemade.
- If guests do not arrive on time, that’s Ok, leave the pizza out at room temperature. Warm or even slightly cold pizza is still Ok
- Have bottles of sparkling water or wine nearby. Beer is Ok too.
- If someone eats a pizzas that is too spicy for them, have some cold milk ready
Pizzas can be judged by:
Whatever you do, enjoy yourself. Life is living an adventure.
- The dough – its texture, chewyness, and flavor
- The sauce – flavor, consistency, spiciness, aroma, how it complements the cheese
- Method of cooking – baked, broiled, grilled
- Cheese – texture, flavor, aroma, consistency
- Overall taste – consistency, aroma, appearance, texture
- Toppings – flavors, complementary flavors, aroma, freshness, lean or fatty meats

- Chain versus chain
