Watch A Bunch of Crazy Pizza Dough Freestyle Videos

The International Pizza Expo was held last week in Las Vegas, Nevada, and part of the annual festivities were the World Pizza Games. During the Games, pizzaiolos from around the world compete to see who can fold pizza boxes the fastest, who can stretch pizza dough the largest (without tearing), and, best of all, who has the best pizza dough-twirling dance moves. (That honor went to this year's gold medal winner, Kazuya Akaogi of Japan.) Below, check out some highlights from the Freestyle portion of the 2012 World Pizza Games.
