2015 Lakewood Kiwanis Pizza Bake Off

The Fifth Annual Lakewood Pizza Bake-Off will take place again at Lakewood High School on Thursday, January 22, 2015. This is a chance for all Lakewood residents to try all the pizza shops in Lakewood in one place. After having the chance to sample the different purveyors from around town, Lakewood Kiwanis is asking you to vote for the best pizza. There will be several different categories including: People's Choice, Best Pepperoini Pizza, Best Specialty Pizza, Best Franchise Pizza and Best Franchise Pepperioini Pizza.

Tickets are available at the door, $10 for those 13 and up, $5 for children 6-12 years old (under 5 = FREE). Begins at 5 p.m. and concludes at 8 p.m., so come early and come hungry because it is ALL YOU CAN EAT!

Proceeds from the Bake-Off support Lakewood Kiwanis and the children of Lakewood.
