WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Pizza lovers gathered at Saint Demetrio’s in Warren Saturday night for the Slice of the Valley pizza challenge.
Belleria Pizza took home the Judge’s Choice Award, and Sunrise Inn of Warren won the People’s Choice.
Celebrity judges included WKBN’s Stan Boney, WFMJ’s Derek Steyer, Michael O’Brien and former NFL player and Warren Harding graduate Mario Manningham.
Twelve local shops served up slices of what event leaders call the ideal food.
“We feel pizza is an all-American food,” said Cheryl Parsons, event coordinator. “Everyone loves pizza and you can get anything on it.”
The event is a fundraiser for the Warren Rotary Club.
Over 3,500 slices of pizza were made for the competition.
