Event: Slice of Columbus 2011/2012

I love pizza.  Okay, I admit it.  Is that so wrong?

I’m not talking about big corporate pizza chains like Pizza Hut, Domino’s, Little Caesars, etc.  I love *good* pizza.  There are plenty of good independent pizzerias in Columbus.

Those pizzerias, as well as some of the chains, are represented at Slice of Columbus.

 

Slice of Columbus is an annual competition amongst the best of Columbus’s pizzerias. B. and I attended Slice of Columbus 2011, where she judged and I — as usual — captured the event for posterity on one of our digital cameras.

Slice of Columbus is a charity event which benefits Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This year’s event is open to the public at a cost of $15 per person at the door or $40 for a family pass (2 adults and up to three children plus five free Pepsi products).  Slice of Columbus 2012 will be at Columbus Commons downtown, from 5pm to 9pm today.  Attendees will be able to try all the competitors’ pizzas, if you’re willing to wait in a couple dozen fast-moving lines.  Trust me, you won’t leave hungry.

 

Last year’s Slice of Columbus was held at Huntington Park in the Arena District. We had a lovely view of the outfield from the press box…

We’re not sure whose pizza this was, but it certainly rocked.

And then there was the Dire Pizza[tm].  Definitely a congealed, greasy mess.

This pizza looked perfect to me, but made B. reach for the Rolaids…

If you want more information about this year’s Slice of Columbus directly from their website, go here.

 

All proceeds from the Slice of Columbus benefit Pediatric Research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, so you won’t just enjoy pizza — you’ll be doing a good deed!

See you there!

  1. I’m sad I’m just seeing this, the family and I were looking for something to do yesterday :(. I miss this every year, maybe next time…

  2. I know it’s a food site, but I was wondering if you have any photos of the band (the Bug Hounds) from last year’s Slice of Columbus at Huntington Park? Thanks!

  3. Hi there! I’d like to invite you to judge the first-ever taste off at the Columbus International Festival in November. There is no contact info on your site. Will you please send me an email so I can send the details?

    Thanks!
