The first “Pitch a Pizza” contest for October’s National Pizza Month was a success! The following creative friends of Picazzo’s Organic Italian Kitchen shared their dream pizza in hopes of winning the $50 Gift Card first prize. Thank you to everyone for sending in their creations!!! The winner is Kenny Taig from Scottsdale, AZ. He entered two creations and the staff picked the Asian Hawaiian BBQ! The close runner up was the Malicious Meatball by Cindy Gilbert.
Entries needed to be posted on Picazzo’s Organic Italian Kitchen Facebook page and Instagram’s PicazzosItalian. They had to include #NationalPizzaMonth and #PicazzosPizzaPitch.
FIRST PRIZE $50 GIFT CARD AWARD
Asian Hawaiian BBQ
Pineapple, BBQ sauce base, Canadian bacon, artichoke, jalapenos, mozzarella, grilled onion, with a sriracha swirl…
Your pizza is being considered as an addition for our January SIGNATURE pizza menu update! Thank you so much for entering two ideas. Your other entry sounded delicious also, but needed to be disqualified because we took the pulled pork off the menu several months ago. It will be used for a near future #SliceOfTheWeek feature! Look for it on our website under “Specials”.

Olive oil and garlic sauce, ricotta and mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, caramelized onions, roasted red and yellow peppers, button mushrooms, artichoke hearts, Kalamata olives, vine ripened tomatoes and finished with fresh basil.
Thank you again for your entries! It was fun for the staff and management to hear from our guests!
