I am the president of the Interact Club at Gloucester High school, and we held the Pizza Taste Off in April. We recently awarded the prizes to the winners, and took a picture of the overall winner, and are hoping that we would be able to get the picture and a short write up on Good Morning Gloucester! Here is the article I wrote and attached is the picture!
Raising nearly $2,000 for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, the Gloucester High School’s Interact Club hosted a successful 7th annual Pizza Taste-Off at the Cruiseport on Wednesday, April 2nd. Standing by the motto “Service Above Self”, Gloucester High School Interact Club members and advisors put in a lot of time and work to make this event happen. With donations from thirteen different pizza places on Cape Ann, voting for Best Overall, Best Crust, and Best Sauce were all tough decisions. The winner of the Best Overall category was Surfside Subs (978-281-1700, 147 Thatcher Rd, Gloucester MA). Humbled by the win, Carl Barbara of Surfside Subs told us, “The pizza is new, we just introduced it last year. It’s a recipe I’ve been thinking about since last year. So me and my manager Frank (Carini) whipped it up and people have loved it. This year we entered the contest and we’re humbled to win.”
Close behind Surfside Subs was Captain Hook’s, and then the Magnolia House of Pizza. The title of Best Crust goes to Cape Ann Pizza, followed by Essex’s new Pearly Bakers. Best Sauce, for another consecutive year, is awarded to Sebastian’s Pizza. This event was a success, and the Interact Club would like to thank all of the supporters who came to the event, the volunteers, the pizza places who donated, the Cruiseport, and would like to congratulate all of winners, as the voting was very close!
