WESTFIELD, NJ — Think you know who makes the best pizza in town? Put your favorites to the test and give some new places a try at the Westfield Area YMCA’s 4th Annual Pizza Palooza on Sunday.

“Pizza Palooza is a great family-fun way to support the Y’s financial assistance program,” said Sharon London,  assistant aquatic director and Pizza Palooza organizer. “The event has been a sell-out the past couple of years, so I have been telling everyone to be sure to register in advance.”

Participants can taste their way through Westfield and Garwood pizzerias including Buona Pizza, Casa di Pizza, Ferraro’s, Gennaro’s, Outta Hand Pizza and Mama’s Pizza.

Tasting and voting will take place from noon until 1 p.m. First, second and third place winners will be announced at 1:15 p.m. New this year will be a 50/50 raffle.

A $12 contribution for adults and children ages 4+ benefits the Y’s Annual Support Campaign, which ensures that no one who is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship and lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside is turned away for inability to pay for Y programs or memberships. The majority of awards enable participation in the Y’s early learning, school age and summer day camp programs.
