Which area restaurant is the Sultan of Sausage or the Prince of Pepperoni? Who makes a specialty pizza fit for a king? Oswegoland’s Best Pizza soon will be crowned!
The Oswego Junior Woman’s Club (OJWC) has set a date for its first annual Oswegoland’s Best Pizza Contest. This fundraising event will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 11:30-1:30 at the Columbus Club of Oswego (197 E. Washington Street).
For a $5 per person admission fee, the public is invited to sample pizzas from a number of local pizza restaurants. A panel of local celebrity judges will choose a winner in three categories – sausage, pepperoni and specialty. Additionally, the public will vote for their favorite overall pizza for a People’s Choice Award.
OJWC is currently seeking local pizza restaurants to participate in the event. In addition, local companies are needed to sponsor the event. Interested businesses may contact OJWC President Brook Henschen for more information – 815-814-5940.
