I hope you didn’t give up pizza for Lent.
The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce has just added a new event. It runs all through March, and will resolve the most important (and longest-running) debate in town:
Who has the best pizza?
Every participant is entered into a drawing, to win a free pizza from one of the 7 winning restaurants.
The contestants are:
- Cuatro Hermanos
- Jordan’s III
- Julian’s Brick Oven
- Julian’s Kitchen
- Planet Pizza
- Romanacci Express
- Tarry Lodge
- Via Sforza
- Westport Pizzeria
The categories are:
- Best slice
- Best personal pizza
- Best meat pizza
- Best gluten-free pizza
- Best veggie pizza
- Best plain pizza
- Best delivered pizza
Each restaurant is entered in 4 categories.
You’ve got a month — beginning March 1 — to visit each venue, and enjoy the offerings. Then go to the Chamber’s pizza contest webpage to vote: www.wesetportwestonchamber.com/pizza.
As you vote, use the hashtag #greatwestportpizza. The more pizza pictures, the better.
Winning restaurants get a plaque — and bragging rights until (let’s hope) next year’s contest.
First Selectman Jim Marpe kicks off the event this Thursday (March 1, 12 noon) at Joe’s Pizza. The (hungry) public is invited.
So what if you have given up pizza for Lent?
No worries. The contest runs through March 31. Lent ends March 29.
That gives you 2 days to check out all 14 restaurants, and vote.
