Everyone loves Pizza, so it seems like a natural choice for the next Van Foodster Food Challenge. The Pizza Challenge features 14 participating restaurants in Vancouver, Burnaby, and Maple Ridge that runs until July 14, 2013.
Participating restaurants have created a new unique pizza creation (challenge guidelines require this pizza can-not be on their menu currently) to enter in this Best Pizza challenge. Each Pizza creation can be simple to fancy, using unique and innovative ingredients, any type, as nutritious or indulgent as they wanted, perhaps with seafood, meats or vegetarian, “I told them to be imaginative” says Challenge creator Richard Wolak.

Wolak has made some changes to the voting procedures to this Food Challenge.
This time around once people have ordered and tried the Pizza creations in this challenge at the participating restaurants, if they love that pizza, they can vote on their mobile phones or ipads from their table in the restaurants or later in the day. People can cast their vote once a day, so if they are visiting the other participating restaurants daily or during the promotion they can vote for their other favourites as well.
While voting, the public is urged to keep these criteria in mind; originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste. Then once they’ve decided which is their favourite, they are encouraged to VOTE at vancouverfoodster.com/pizza-challenge/
The winning restaurant and their Pizza creations will be announced on July 16, 2013.
