Somerville's Eat at Jumbo's Wins Local Pizza Battle
The Ball Square pizza joint beat competition from Cambridge and Braintree.
The pizza battle took place June 26 as part of Parlor Sports' "Tuesday Night Fight" series, described by Parlor Sports, via Eventbrite, as "a monthly head-to-head culinary competition to see who can master the art of everyone’s favorite sporting snacks: Stadium Food."
Patrons paid $15 to attend the sold-out event, tasting all the pizzas and using the ballots to vote for the winner.
Grover Taylor, owner of Eat at Jumbo's, said he was pleasantly surprised, given the caliber of the competition, when the results came back and Eat at Jumbo's was voted the winner by a landslide.
