2014 Slice of Americana winners

And the winners are…

The U.S. Pizza Team and PMQ Pizza Magazine held its First Annual Slice of Americana Pizza Competition in Oxford, MS. this 4th of July.

Pizzaiolos from across the country converged on the little town to show off their pizza stylings to the deep south. Out of the chaos of townsfolk and pizzas arose 4 champions. The scores were close and 4th place lost out to 3rd by only one point. In the end, Rick Mines of Nima’s Pizza & More in Gassville, AR. walked away with the grand prize of a trip to the World Pizza Championships in Italy in 2015.

Congratulations to all winners!
