A.J. Barile’s Chicago Pizza has done it again!
This year, it was Al Piser’s 18-year-old daughter, Joleen, who took home the award.
Joleen won first place in the western U.S. non-traditional pizza division during this year’s challenge, held last week.
During the finals, she took second overall.
This is her first year of competition.
The award-winning pizza, made with an herb-infused, cheese and caramelized onion-stuffed crust, is topped with a light sauce, garlic chicken, baby spinach, arugula, cremini mushrooms, candied bacon and garnished with finely-chopped red and yellow bell peppers and spices.
This second-best-in-the-world pizza, dubbed “That One” is available now in a 14″ size at A.J. Barile’s Chicago Pizza, 32693 Yucaipa Blvd., Yucaipa. Other sizes will follow.
A big Dine 909 congratulations to Joleen and the rest of the crew at A.J. Barile’s on their continued success!
