Theo's, Slice Won the Inaugural Pizza Wars

The Pizza Wars were a thing that happened earlier this year, running from mid-February through tax day, April 15. Here's a recap of how it worked: 10 pizza shops participated, with pizza fans going around, getting a "passport" stamped after they got a pie from each shop. When the passport was full, it turned into a ballot that people could use to vote on their favorites.

Shortly before Jazz fest, the winners were announced. The big winners, taking home all the bragging rights, were Theo's and Slice, though a number of shops got nods based on different categories.

The other winners:

· Hand Tossed: Pizza Delicious
· "504ness": Pizza Delicious
· Deep Dish: Midway
· Thin Crust: Theo's
· Creative: Pizza Delicious
· Beer List: Midway
· Service: Ancora
· Sauce: Pizza Delicious
· Atmosphere: Crescent Pie & Sausage Co.
· Specialty: Slice
· Community Partner: Pizza Delicious
· Toppings: Pizzicare

So for the 10 participating pizza shops, 7 got shout-outs as the favorite this or favorite that, seriously spreading the love around.
