The competition invited viewers to submit pizza topping ideas to create the People's Pizza, which will be on sale at Domino's next year. The tastiest pizza ideas were whittled down to just three by a panel of experts including This Morning's Phil Vickery, star of The Only Way is Essex, Mario Falcone and Domino's new product development chef, Chris Denoven. Maria Tyrrell was announced as the winner with her 'Chimi Chicken' pizza today [Thursday 29, 2012] in a public vote live on This Morning.

Featuring a combination of chicken in an Argentinean style chimichurri marinade with yellow and red peppers, Maria's Chimi Chicken pizza uses her family's very own authentic chimichurri sauce recipe.

Maria Tyrrell, winner of This Morning People's Pizza competition, said: "I am so overwhelmed, and absolutely thrilled! I'm so excited that my Mum and Dad's sauce is going on a pizza. Food is a massive part of my family - my grandmother was a cordon bleu chef and my parents and brother run an Argentine restaurant in Middlesex so I've always loved cooking and using my Argentinean heritage in recipes. When I saw this competition, I just had to enter."

Back in the studio, Phillip Schofield said; "Absolutely brilliant, well done! They were all brilliant and very tasty pizzas... So when the doorbell rings, it'll be our pizza!"

Holly Willoughby added; "Well done Maria! I would've been happy with any of them, but I did like that one I have to say - that was the one I thought was the nicest."

Simon Wallis, sales and marketing director for Domino's Pizza, said: "We are delighted to be supporting this competition on ITV's most iconic daytime TV show and look forward to launching the winning entry, the People's Pizza, in our stores next year."
