It’s a wrap! Winners and highlights of the Carnival

Posted in Carnival O' Pizza by Tara Bouley on November 26, 2010

If you missed the Carnival O’ Pizza, because you were being corralled by a pack of wild boars, here’s how the contests shook out:

The dough throwing contests size, speed and, endurance were all dominated by last year’s champs. Jose Aguilar from Home Slice won speed, John Pennington from Southside Flying Pizza won size and Mike Provence of Home Slice won endurance, all winning for the second year in a row.

Big upset this year in the eating contest. The undefeated, 4 year champion Chris Floyd was taken out in a neck-and-neck battle to the tune of a mere 1/4 oz of crust by last year’s runner up Billy “Pork Chop” Chedsey.

The Hands on an Eggplant Sub contest went a record 64 hours! The last 6 hours saw Sonia Arellano, the 2008 runner up and a determined Lauren Shugart both in it to win it. But shortly after dawn, Sonia accidentally removed her hand making Lauren this year’s champ.
