Cedar Falls Has The Best Pizza In The State
And it ain't Casey's...
For the past few years, one Cedar Falls restaurant has been making a name for itself at one of the most prestigious (and delicious) contests in the state.
Pizza Fest, a one day event in Ankeny, celebrates all things cheesy and gooey. The state's biggest pizza party has taken place in Ankeny for the past six years. Pizza and food vendors from all over the state come together for a day of pizza tasting and fun activities.
This summer will be the seventh annual Pizza Fest. At last year's event one Cedar Falls restaurant ended up taking home several titles.
Vendors at this event can enter their pizza/restaurant into multiple categories to be considered for titles and awards including; Best of the Fest and Best Pizza-Like Creation.
And there were plenty of events for the public, including a kid's pizza dough tossing contest and a pizza box folding contest. One Cedar Falls eatery won big at this festival for the second time and continues to carry a pretty prestigious pizza title.
Chad's Pizza a Cedar Falls staple was named Best of the Fest. Located at 909 W 23rd Street in Cedar Falls, Chad's is open seven days a week. This is the very same award that the restaurant staff won the year before.
Congratulations to the reigning champions!
