Williamsburgs Air Pizza has closed, and well miss its logo of a chef slam-dunking a pie. Turns out dough acrobats arent just the stuff of hilarious signage there actually is a U.S. Pizza Team, the pie-slinging equivalent of the Harlem Globetrotters, and theyre on tour. A press release tells us to expect pizza athletes performing jumps, flips, rolls and passes while keeping their dough spinning and often accompanied by music, costumes and theatrical props. From May 24 to May 26 in Little Italy, the teams fifteen members will be showing off the chops that have won them titles like Best Pizza Maker, Largest Dough Stretch, Best Freestyle Dough Tosser, and Fastest Pizza Maker. The above video of trainer Chris Green is easily the craziest thing weve seen since those dudes who jump into each others jeans.
