Final comments included “best yet,” “tastes really good” and “most flavor.” Leonardo’s had the weakest showing in the contest, averaging only a 1.6 out of ten in the Best Overall Taste category.

In general, the testers were picky, scoring only Cottage Inn, Marco’s and Pizza House above five in all categories.

Overall, the Pizza Challenge was a success. It proved that service in Ann Arbor is quick and efficient, and that good pizza isn’t too hard to find.
