MILLTOWN, NJ - Normally, the Milltown Fourth of July Committee announces the name of the best apple pie marker in the borough on July 4. However, this year it was patriotic pizza that was on the menu. The borough's inaugural Patriotic Pizza contest was sponsored by Milltown's three pizzerias, Maria's, Dusal's and Francesco. Thirteen residents got their patriotic creative cooking juices flowing this July. Three residents earned top honors and a gift certificated to one of the sponsoring pizzerias. The owners and the staff of the sponsoring pizzerias chose the winners.
Benny Motin, Dina Fleming and Maggie Young put together Milltown's most Patriotic Pies for Independence Day 2020. Young and her sister Caitlyn have won the apple pie contest for the past two summers.
