The Pizza Madness Championship was a battle between New York-style and artisanal pizza.
And the artisans had it.
Pomo Pizzeria — which has locations in downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale, Gilbert and Glendale — trailed New York-style pizza chain NYPD Pizza going into the final day of voting this past Saturday. In fact, NYPD jumped out to a lead early in the championship round, but the Phoenix-based chain couldn’t hold it as a flurry of votes for Pomo flooded in to put it over the top.
Pomo finished with 65 percent of the vote, or 5,253 votes, to NYPD’s 35 percent, or 2,839 votes.
So — according to Phoenix Business Journal readers, at least — Pomo has earned the bragging rights of Best Pizza in Phoenix.
