Villa Capri Restaurant Hosts 2nd Annual Pizza Madness
Pizza: from the Latin pinsere, meaning “to press”. No matter what the etymology of the delicacy is, to those who love it it means, “Good God, let’s eat!”, and on March 21st pizza lovers can unite under one roof to do just that.
On that date, Wallingford’s Villa Capri Restaurant is once again hosting the 2nd Annual Pizza Madness event from 5:30pm to 7:45pm. Eleven pizza shops from Wallingford and Meriden will gather together and bring their best creations to share with the public. Here is a list of this years entrants:
Pizzas will be judged by a panel of three elite judges (not yet determined) who will deliberate over crust, sauce, cheese, spices and toppings to come up with a winner in three categories:
Best Overall (Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice)
Best Original Pizza (People’s Choice)
Best Specialty Pizza (People’s Choice)
Entrance fee for this grand event is $10, and there will be a DJ, a cash bar, raffles and a trivia contest. We attended last year’s inaugural event and can honestly say we had some really good pizza, some really radical pizza, and a lot of fun! So give the Cook the night off and come on down to the Villa Capri and sink your teeth into some of the best pizza this side of Little Italy!
Some pizza facts:
Pizza is a Greek creation (but the Italians perfected it!)
In 1987, October was designated National Pizza Month
Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza each day, or 350 slices per second.
