Viccino’s was voted best pizza in Highland Park or Deerfield Sunday at the first annual Pizza Bowl at Deerfield High School but the big winner was the District 113 Education Foundation.
More than 200 people attended the inaugural event at Deerfield High School sampling cheese pizza from eight different pizzerias in Deerfield or Highland Park with Viccino’s coming out on top with Lou Malnati’s second and Moccio’s third.
The outcome will bring a $25 dollar donation from Deerfield Mayor Harriet Rosenthal who lost a bet on the outcome to Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering. Rotering will make a $10 contribution to the Foundation. All proceeds from the night went to the Foundation.
