This past Friday (10/30) we had a awesomely fun teen program called Costume Pizza Taste-Off.  Teens were able to sample cheese pizza from 5 local pizza establishments and vote for their favorite.  The votes are in and Tortorice’s pizza is the favorite!

Those who voted for Tortorice’s commented that they thought the cheese was really good and the taste was richer.

Many thanks to all the pizzerias who participated and kindly donated pizza: Fellini Restaurant & Pizzeria, Moretti’s Ristorante & Pizzeria, Mug’s Pizza, Toppers Pizza, Tortorice’s Pizza
