TONIGHT: Pizza Wars 3 is Happening

Last year, Jet's Pizza took home the prize as best pizza in the Skokie, Niles, Morton Grove and Lincolnwood area. Pizza Wars 3 is happening tonight at Niles West High School.

Of the following, who do you think has the best pizza? 

  • De Carlucci's
  • Edwardo's
  • Father & Son Italian Kitchen
  • Gulliver's
  • Jet's Pizza   
  • Lou Malnati's 
  • Nancy's Pizza
  • OrganicLife
  • Papa John's 
  • Pequod's
  • Sarpino's
  • Village Inn
  • Wa-Pa-Getti's
  • Burt's

Indeed, it's a tough call. Some have better deep dish pizza while others excel with their thin crust. Now in it's third year, Pizza Wars 3 is happening tonight, Thursday, Jan. 17, at the Niles West High School cafeteria, 5701 Oakton St., from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

With the contenders set, one question remains to be answered by the community: What pizza will be tossed the trophy as the Pizza Wars 3 champion?

From thick, thin, cheesy, crispy, spicy or savory, the ‘people’ will choose who takes the title from last year's winner, Jet’s Pizza.

The District 219 Education Foundation for Excellence, with the help of the Student Organization Dance Marathon, will be hosting the third annual Pizza Wars.

Tickets are $12 at the door, but you might be able to save some money by purchasing the tickets directly from the Education Foundation's website.  The evening will also feature live entertainment from Niles West and North student bands.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the District 219 Education Foundation for Excellence. Last year, over 500 people participated in Pizza Wars 2, raising over $4,300 for the Education Foundation. This year’s plans call for Pizza Wars 3 to raise an aggressive goal of $8,000.

About the Education Foundation -

Approximately three out of every ten District 219 students qualify for the Free or Reduced-Price Lunch program, a number that has grown dramatically since the Foundation was formed. More recently, the Foundation has also been providing school supplies and breakfast bars for students in need.

If the babe in the photo shows up again, I'm totally there.

That 'babe' is my sister and she volunteered for Gulliver's during the first Pizza Wars. So ... this feels awkward.
