The prize-winning pizza monger Bruno Di Fabio who has popular restaurants in Old Greenwich and New Canaan will make his debut appearance on the Food Network's 'Chopped' on Super Bowl Sunday.

DiFabio is the owner of 10 artisan pizzerias around the country including ReNapoli in Old Greenwich and Pinnochio Pizza in New Canaan.

He was selected to be a judge on the cooking competition that pits four chefs against one another whose talents are tested as they prepare appetizers, entrees and desserts with ingredients from mystery ingredient baskets.

The episode with DiFabio, and regular judges Amanda Freitag and Alex Guarnaschelli, airs during the Super Bowl at 9 p.m. Feb. 2.

The Super Bowl episode, which also will be rebroadcast on Tuesday Feb. 4, will feature chefs creating pizzas, according to Pizza Today. "The hardest part was highlighting the positives and be constructive in your criticism," told the publication.

DiFabio is a 13-time medalist World Pizza Games / Pizza World Championships.

I mean no disrespect but if he's really a world champion then why is his Pinocchio pizza so awful?

Nice people at the store but the pizza at Pinocchio's is mediocre and tasteless at best. Maybe the pizza he makes in other restaurants is better???
