Shorty’s Hosts Second Annual Pizza Design Competition

Atlanta, GA.,– We are proud to announce shorty’s Second Annual Pizza Design Pro-Am. You are invited to submit a favorite pizza recipe for a chance to win a $1,000 cash prize. The winning ""pizza will also be added to the menu at shorty’s, alongside the 2008 Winner, the “B.B. King”, which features shaved bbq pork tenderloin, goat cheese, cilantro, and is finished with a “CZR” salad. The event is open to professional chefs and amateur cooks alike – anyone and everyone can enter as many times as they would like, as long as they ante up the $1 entry fee.

The competition begins in early September and will end at midnight on October 31st, 2009. The finals/judging will take place on Sunday, November 15th at 2 PM at shorty’s in Tucker, Georgia. Ten pizzas will be selected as FINALISTS and these will be announced via shorty’s monthly eblast newsletter during the first week of November, 2009.

Entry forms may be picked up at either restaurant and all entries must be submitted with the entry fee paid in cash. In keeping with shorty’s rock n’ roll theme, designers must pick an appropriate name for their creation. The Judges reserve the right to rename the winning pizza if it is deemed to have a name that lacks “credibility.” Bootlegging awesome recipes from other pizza joints is encouraged and will be tolerated. Recipes will be evaluated by a panel of three judges based upon the following five criteria: Name, Originality, Appearance, Taste, and Food Cost. The Judges’ decisions will be final. Come by, win the money, and show us “what you got.”
