Looking for the best pizza? You may need to head to Avon, where the three winners of this year’s Avon / Avon Lake Rotary Pizza Bake-Off are from.
Four the fourth time in five years, Avon’s Coleone’s Pizza has earned the “People’s Choice” award from the Bake-Off, held at Avon Lake High School Oct. 4.
Best Pepperoni pizza was from Antonio’s of Avon, a new participant this year. Best Specialty Pizza went to Cici’s (Avon), who served up the winning Mac n Cheese Pizza. Also participating this year were Doughboy’s and Romeo’s pizza shops.
More than 660 people came to the all-you-can-eat event hosted by the Avon-Avon Lake Rotary Club. The event is the club’s major fundraiser.
Event co-chair Frank Krempasky said the organization did not have a final tally on how much money was raised but expected it to be noteworthy.
“I can say it was more than last year and each year the event continues to grow in the community, Krempasky said. Bob Murphy also co-chairs the event.
Funds go into the Avon / Avon Lake Rotary Foundation for scholarships and other local community charity causes.
