It was a beautiful, cool evening during the 2019 Pizza Challenge – but the crowd and the competition were on fire. Multiple booths ran out of pizza within the hour and had to have more made up to keep up with the growing crowd.

The pizza locations at the event tonight was Gibby’s Eatery and Sports Bar, Donatos, Watt Street Tavern, Dairy Shed, Too! & Ramrod’s Pizza, Underdogs Pizza, Pizza Cottage and Gantz Pizza.

Music was provided by a local band known as Black Stone, who kept the crowd cheering and buzzing before McGuffey Lane hopped on stage closer to the end of the Pizza Challenge.

Pinckney St was shut down just before The Savings Bank parking lot and within a short period of time, the small area was filled with locals milling around and trying all the different pizzas. After they had their fill, they would make their way back to a little table to cast their vote on who their favorite pizza location was.
