According to FirstCoastNews.com, “If you like pizza and football stop on by Brucci’s Pizzeria this month to take part in the first annual Pizza Bowl. It’s a city-wide pizza pie-eating tournament with contestants from all three Brucci’s locations.”

“Local Celebrity judges and announcers will provide play-by-play of the action. Our own Dan Hicken plans to attend. Owner Bruce Jackson stopped by First Coast News on Saturday to talk about the event and also to share his lasagna recipe. Contestants will compete to see who can eat the most pizza in 25 minutes. Four top qualifiers from each location will move on to the playoffs. Prizes include dinner certificates, rounds of golf and an overnight hotel stay. The first round gets underway at the Ponte Vedra Beach location Sat., January 9th. For more information go to bruccispizza.com,” the story said.
