Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - CHRIS MCMA­HON

AS the bat­tle rages at Sun­corp Sta­dium tonight, pizza shops across Townsville will bat­tle the oven to cook thou­sands of piz­zas.

One of the busiest shops in the city will be Pizza Riviera with owner Frank Guglielmino ex­pect­ing to make about 600 piz­zas to feed hun­gry footy fans.

“It will be crazy,

very busy, I’ve put on ex­tra staff at both shops to cover the num­ber of piz­zas we ex­pect to cook,” he said.

“It’s a sim­ple din­ner to or­gan­ise, peo­ple won’t have to worry about cook­ing and most of all, you can have a slice of pizza in one hand and a beer in the other.”

Mr Guglielmino said peo­ple should get in early to get their din­ner be­fore kick­off, with some keen pizza eaters putting in or­ders last night to skip the rush.

“Peo­ple should def­i­nitely get in early, or­ders are com­ing in very early, it is go­ing to be crazy busy, ev­ery­one will want their food be­fore kick- off, the ear­lier they or­der the bet­ter.

“The ovens will be go­ing full steam. I think the Supreme will be our big­gest seller, it is a very spe­cial pizza, the peo­ple love it.”
