Local pizza lover, Delwyn Hughes from Gateshead, has been chosen as a finalist in a national competition run by Domino’s Pizza. Delwyn now stands a chance of winning £10,000 for his entry in Domino’s competition to find the next official Britain’s Got Talent pizza as part of the company’s sponsorship of the top TV show.
Delwyn’s Asian Feast pizza was chosen from over 38,000 entries. His pizza caught the judge’s eye with its combination of Chinese flavoured chicken, hoi sin sauce, sweetcorn, peppers and onion on Domino’s classic base with vine-ripened tomato sauce and 100% real mozzarella cheese. The Asian Feast is now up for the public vote at www.dominos.co.uk/vote, battling against a Mexican Sizzler pizza from Glasgow and British Breakfast from Newhaven. Not only will the winner scoop £10,000 – their pizza will also be sold in Domino’s stores nationwide as the 2010 official Britain’s Got Talent pizza.
Delwyn Hughes said: “It was such a surprise to find out my entry had been chosen as a finalist. I’m a massive Domino’s fan so I’m really proud to have my idea in the final three. Winning £10,000 would be fantastic and would certainly help me buy a new car, but the ultimate accolade for a pizza lover such as me would be to have my pizza sold in Domino’s stores across the country. I’m really hoping the people of Gateshead get behind me to vote for the Asian Feast so we can claim this title for the North of England!”
To vote for Delwyn’s Asian Feast, log onto www.dominos.co.uk/vote. Each voter will also be entered into a free draw to win one of 25 Domino’s pizza parties, worth £100 each. Voting is open until November 29, 2009.
