Pizza Pizzazz Competition
The Mid-America Restaurant Expo is home to the Pizza Pizzazz Competition, a legendary contest that crowns "The Best Pizza in the Midwest."
Using a rigorously scrutinized blind-judging format, this contest sees 40 contestants battle with their best pizza in our competition arena by baking first-round pizzas. Six finalists are chosen and then asked to prepare two pies for an ultimate judging that decides first, second and third place finishers.
In earning the title, “Best of the Midwest,” past Pizzazz winners claim sales increased as much as 30 percent in the months following their victories.
