Everybody loves pizza. So in a way, food event company Young & Foodish's London Pizza Festival—a first for the city—seemed almost inevitable. 

The festival will be held in Jubilee Place at Borough Market. For £30, guests can get access to the event and six quarter-pizzas all for themselves. If that amount of pizza seems a little too gluttonous, there is also a limited supply of £8 tickets for people willing to share their pizza supply. 

Pizza pros Francesco and Salvatore Salvo are being flown in from Naples to construct two classic Neapolitan pizzas: the Margherita and the Cosacca. Five other pizza chefs from the United Kingdom will also be there competing for the festival-goers' love and votes for best pizza. The competing restaurants in the line-up are Yard Sale Pizza, Made of Dough, Sud Italia, Bertha’s, and Honest Crust. To accompany the pizza, there will also be soft drinks, Negronis, Italian wine, and Beavertown Brewery beer.

The pizza festivities will take place September 13. You can grab tickets right here
