Get ready for a night of tasty food and friendly competition during the 2023 Pizza Throwdown and Dessert Duel on Saturday, May 27 from 6 – 8 p.m.
Once again, Tucson Originals is hosting the cheesy event at Fresco Pizzeria and Pastaria, located at 3011 E. Speedway Blvd. If it’s your first time hearing about this event, some of Tucson’s top pizzerias go slice for slice in a battle for pizza supremacy.
Each year, the Pizza Throwdown features local pizzerias competing for the title of “Pizza Throwdown Champion.” Plus, did you notice there’s a “dessert duel” in the title of this event? This portion of the competition features some of the Tucson Originals restaurants competing for the best sweet bite.
Also, it’s warmin’ up outside so Barrio Brewing Company and Firetruck Brewing Company will be on-site pouring their locally brewed beers.
For $50 per person, all guests will receive three drink tickets and all of the pizza and desserts desired.
Fresco Pizzeria and Pastaria is located at 3011 E. Speedway Blvd. For more information and to purchase your tickets, visit eventbrite.com.
