Food & Spirits Magazine recently hosted Omaha’s 6th Annual Pizza Review at The Waiting Room. As it has been for the previous years, a capacity crowd was on hand to sample pizza from over 15 Omaha pizza restaurants and hear the musical perfection of Brad Hoshaw. Students from the Institute for the Culinary Arts at MCC were also on hand to assist with setting up the event and serving the pizza.
There was a ton (not literally, more like ½ ton) of pizza on hand and attendees were treated to some fantastic pizza. Before we get to the winners, here’s a list of the participating restaurants and what they brought:
House Pizza – Pepperoni, house sausage, mushrooms, garlic confit, oregano and 5 cheese blend.
Mushroom Pizza – Garlic cream sauce, goat cheese, mushrooms and caramelized onions.
American Steak Classic – Marinated skirt steak, hickory smoke bacon, red onions and our blend of Italian cheeses on our creamy garlic steak sauce.
Chicken-Bacon-Spinach-Artichoke – Delicious, self-explanatory and made with our garlic white sauce.
Classic Cheese – The standard by which all pizzas should be judged. Flavors that stand on their own, not hidden by ingredients.
Chipotle Chicken and Bacon – A smoky chipotle pepper sauce, savory roasted chicken breast strips, onion, mozzarella cheese and topped with crispy smoked bacon
