Omaha’s Largest Pizza Review #5

Omaha’s Largest Pizza Review #5

Food & Spirits Magazine recently held the 5th Annual ‘Omaha’s Largest Pizza Review’ at The Waiting Room Lounge. Nearly 300 people turned out to vote for their favorites while Matt Cox and Rock, Paper, Dynamite performed.

Participating pizza restaurants were Prairie Fire Pizza, Ragazzi’s, Salt 88, Villagio, Vivace, La Casa, Baxter’s, Clancy’s, Dante, Mangia, Mama’s, Orsi’s, Pizza Shoppe and Pizza West. Students from the Institute for the Culinary Arts at Metropolitan Community College served the pizza.

There were a few shake-ups this year but everybody received at least one first place vote and there were favorable comments about every participant, as well. It’s noteworthy that for the first time our judge’s and people’s votes matched up for first place.

Salt 88 took the top spot from both the judge’s and people’s vote. Their pizza was the ‘Sweet & Spicy’ which was spicy sausage, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, and sweet and spicy sauce. Rounding out the top five for the people’s choice was Dante, Mangia, Ragazzi’s and Baxter’s. For the Judge’s choice, La Casa, Ragazzi’s, Dante, Baxter’s (tied for fifth) and Pizza West (tied for fifth) finish out the top five.
