Be Big Game Ready with This 54-Topping Pizza

January 21, 2020


Let Big Game 54 be a football pizza feast!

To celebrate professional football’s 54th annual Big Game, Hormel Foods worked with Certified Master Chef Ron DeSantis to develop a 54-topping pizza. The nearly 9-foot-long gargantuan pizza is inspired by delicacies and regional food favorites found throughout the United States.

“When the team from Hormel Foods and I got together to figure out how we could pull off a 54-topping pizza for the Big Game, while still making it something people can prepare at home, we immediately began thinking about the distinctive flavors of the different regions of the country,” DeSantis said. “It was important to me that the taste be authentic, and by doing it according to regions, the flavors come together beautifully.”
