Princess Cruises has announced another exclusive celebrity culinary collaboration, with Pizza Chef Tony Gemignani, the 13-time World Pizza Champion and undisputed greatest pizza maker in modern history.

Chef Gemignani has created five unique pizzas for Princess, each with an exciting blend of savoury flavours and premium ingredients from Soppressata sausage and hot honey to Gorgonzola and sweet fig preserve, further enhancing the line’s position as offering the Best Pizza at Sea
