Representatives from Big Mario’s Pizza, Piecora’s Original New York Pizza and Pasta, Zayda Buddy’s Pizza & Bar, Elemental Pizza, Tavolàta, The Hi-Life, Rione XIII, and Ballard Pizza Company will be testing their tossing skills. Competitors will be judged on speed, style, height of their toss, and best looking pie. There will be four rounds, each with three participants, with the winner of each round advancing to the final round and tossing for the glorious title of “Pizza Toss Boss.” The winner will receive eternal bragging rights and a trophy to display proudly in their restaurant for the year.
The proceeds from the event will go to the winner’s charity of choice.
