The Asheville Pizza Wars are on! We are going to have the people nominate many different pizza making establishments in and around Asheville North Carolina to battle for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize. There are so many great places to grab a pizza in the AVL area. We are creating this event to expose you to the best and the rest according to our judges and also according to you. Buy Tickets HERE!
Here is how it will work: People will nominate their favorite pizza makers in the AVL area, we will gather the votes and make them aware of the nomination. They will have a chance to join the battle and possibly win, or forfeit and automatically lose. The contestants will bring 1 regular cheese pizza, and 1 specialty pizza (5 topping max) of their choice to be judged. Along with this, they will bring 8 “other” pizzas (cheese and whatever else) for the people (us!). We will have 7 judges for the cheese pizzas and 7 judges for the specialty pizzas. Videos and photos will be taken of every pizza with credit to the establishments. Every contestant will receive great publicity for entering and being a part of this event!!
We will be having Asheville Pizza Party of the year at the Garage at Biltmore on August 14th at 7pm, judging starts at 7:30pm, Pizza Party starts at 8pm. The judges will start the competition and their votes will be cast. Judges will vote for the main competition and the guests attending will have the “peoples choice” vote. Everyone will have a chance to vote!! Then the pizza party will begin. It is only $15 for the whole evening, with the party ending at 2:30am. Musicians include several bands and DJ dance times. Come ready to have a great time!
