This is it! The second last round of The Beijinger’s 2016 Pizza Cup! And this round, we face none other than ubiquitous Beijing pizza delivery brand Annies Pizza.
We’re on the home stretch now, within a stone’s throw of winning the Beijing Pizza for the third year running and join such greats as Muhammad Ali and the New Zealand Allblacks! Or something like that anyway… But as is only fitting, we face the heaviest hitters at the end. This semi-finals, Kro’s Pizza will face Sanlitun sophomore Bottega, while we will face our old foe Annies. Whichever way it goes, it’s going to be a HUGE showdown!

Gung Ho has made it to the Quarter Finals, where Beijing’s 8 biggest and best pizza brands will go head to head including Annies, Tube Station, Great Leap, Bottega, Kro’s Nest, Eatalia. This round Gung Ho! Pizza will take on Napolitan pizza specialists La Pizza! It’s a bit of a grudge match as La Pizza took down our sibling store Pyro Pizza in Round 2.

It’s a bit of a roller coaster year for us this year. The opening of our store in the IKEA Livat shopping center was a massive step for us in every way, but the loss of our Lido HQ – the heart of our operation – has definitelly been a gut punch to our team. But at Gung Ho there’s only ever one thing to do – GO! GO! GO!
As you know, Gung Ho has won back to back Pizza Cup championships. And this year we’ve just passed tha halfway mark to scoring a Threepeat! It’s a huge challenge, especially with Beijing’s pizza field getting stronger every year, but what an achievement!

GUNG HO PIZZA DISCOUNT
Passing the first round, our Pizza Cup Celebration has officially hit 10% off, to be announced at the end of the competition! The discount will get 10% lower with every round we pass!
Thanks to everyone who voted! We really appreciate your support!
It’s that time again! After a great (if not particularly clear skied) weekend at the annual TBJ Pizza Festival, the 2016 Beijinger Pizza Cup has officially started!
The annual competition is a celebration of how far the F&B scene in Beijing has come, with 88 pizza stores competing up from 64 last year. The format has seen a bit of a tweak also: last year, each competitor was grouped into a class category, from bars or family style, to the hotly contested pizza specialist category. This year, the 88 pizza brands have been randomly sorted into 4 random brackets, which will hopefully see fewer of the pizza specialists being knocked out early, and sticking around to go toe-to-toe in the later rounds.
In a weird twist of fate, both Gung Ho as well as our west-side pizza brand Pyro Pizza have been seeded in the same bracket. Hopefully this shouldn’t have too much of an impact, as voters have been given up to 8 votes in each bracket of 22. In case that was too subtle, we have have two pizza stores in the race – please vote for us both!
This first group round started last night, and will end on Wednesday night so get cracking! As before, Gung Ho will be offering a discount celebration depending on how far we get along in the competition. More details to follow!

Thanks for your support – Go! Go! Go!
To all of our amazing Lido customers,
We’re sad to inform you that due to an unexpected change in our lease agreement by our landlord we will be closing our Lido store on Tuesday October 18. Regretfully we will also be unable to offer delivery service to the Lido area. Our Sanltiun, Shuangjing and Xihongmen stores are still open for business and are ready to take care of you anytime you come.
For our VIP customers, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that our VIP cards are useable at all other stores and useable on all promotions and specials, including combos and our daily lunch buffet.
We understand that the change in location may be inconvenient to some people, so we like to offer all of our current Lido VIP customers a 20% increase to their current balance. If this is not suitable, then please contact us before October 31 and we will refund your current balance.
For inquiries about VIP Cards, please contact Jack on 18519117187

It’s been a pleasure living and working in the area, and a pleasure getting to know you all. In true Gung Ho! fashion we have no intention of letting this set back getting us down and we look forward to re-opening a store in the area again soon. Take care, and see you all soon!

This Autumn we’re featuring more products influenced from our native New Zealand! Joining our crowd fave New Zealand Lamb Pizza we’re proud to present our new venison pizza and salad, featuring tender farm-raised venison imported from New Zealand. Our new Venison Pizza is served with julienned apple and watermelon radish on the side and accompanied by a plum-raspberry gastrique dipping sauce. And the salad has avocados in it! Who doesn’t love avocados?
Sausage rolls are an antipodean favorite at children’s parties and BBQs (and late night bar crawls) alike. Served with tomato sauce, these bite-sized snacks are going to be a hit with your kids.
We’ve also got a South Western salad on the menu featuring our tender (and safe!) sous vide chicken with sliced avocado (yay!) and chunks of fresh mango and served with our new avocado-lime dressing!
