Tucson Elites rang in National Pizza Month with Empire Pizza via an Elite 8 pizza bracket to vote for the featured special of the month! The eatery doesn’t make your average pie either. The contenders for flavor of the month included Elote, Spanikopizza, “Che” laquiles, Na”Che’s” Pizza, Sonoran Hot Dog, Forbes Meat Company 007, Filipino Street Chicken and Empire Cubano.
In between pizza tastings, Yelpers connected with founder and owner, David, who shared special details about their dough-making process, inspiration behind their pizza specials and their collaborations with local purveyors such as Tortillas by Che West, Forbes Meat Company and South Sixth Bodega.
It was truly an epic evening, bound to go down in the record books. So which pizza won?
