The World Pizza Championships are taking place through today in Salsamaggiore Terme, Italy.

Word is (via Facebook) that the U.S. Pizza Team won the International Team Acrobatic Competition this year. That's the whole dough-spinning part of the competition (that's Dajki Yamamoto of Japan going for the largest dough-stretch above; see this slideshow on WFAA.com for more).

The other part of the pizza games in Salsamaggiore Terme involves actually cooking pizza for judging as world's best. Still no word that I could find on who won that, since the games are just ending there. The announcement is supposed to come tonight, which should be about any minute now in ol' Italia.
