3rd Annual Best Pizza on Long Island Contest and Festival
The top pizzerias in each category will be invited to the pizza bake-off and final judging at the Pizza Festival to be held on October 1 at Adventureland, located on Route 110 in Farmingdale, from 12:00 - 6:00 p.m. Activities include pizza bake-off and final judging, pizza eating contest, make your own pie, pizza sampling, rides, games and attractions and it is free to attend. In addition, a portion of the proceeds raised from the events go to non-profit organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry on Long Island.
Joe Carlucci, World Champion Pizza Acrobat, will be joining the event this year as a Celebrity Judge. In between taste testing, he will perform an awesome display of acrobatic pizza tossing.
This year's finalists will not only compete in the bake-off in October, but one lucky pizzeria will be selected to compete in the American Pizza Championships at the New York Pizza Show on November 1-2 at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC.
