May the best slice win
Children's Museum seeks competitors for its pizza challenge
The 5th annual pizza fest and silent auction is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 16, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at 6 Washington St. Advance tickets are available online at www.pizzafest.eventbrite.com for $10 for adults, $7 for children ages 3 to 10, and children under 2 are free. At the door, tickets are $12 and $9.
Duncanson said any venue can take part in the event. She cited the Spaghetti Stain, which brought French bread pizza even though it doesn’t have pizza on the regular menu.
While participants are required to offer cheese pizza and one other flavor, Duncanson said most bring three or four varieties — including roasted vegetables, honey barbecue chicken and dessert pizzas, which are a big hit.“They don’t tell us the pizzas there will bring,” Duncanson said. “They like that element of surprise.”
“You can try pizza from six to 10 restaurants,” Duncanson said, adding the pizzas are cut up into “tasting slices.” Area residents help choose the best pizzas in the following categories: Kids’ Choice Cheese and Grown-Ups’ Choice. Meanwhile, a group of experts will select the Judges’ Pick for Best Pizza, Best Crust and Most Creative Toppings.
