A big thank you to all the teens who came out on Friday for our Pizza Taste-Off program! Without knowing where each pizza was from the participants had to decide which pizza had the best crust, best sauce, best cheese, best smelling, and best overall slice. The top winner ended up being Brenda’s Pizza Factory!
