Two of Niagara's best-known celebrity chefs proved you can make healthy pizza taste great Thursday during the "Heart Healthy Pizza Showdown" at Memorial Medical Center's Tenth Street Café.
Judges awarded Chef Bobby Anderson's F Bites team the top single pizza prize for their duck confit creation. Chef Lamont Singletary and the Tenth Street Café team took home the overall prize for creativity, taste and good health for a four-pizza selection that included a fresh fruit and almond-topped dessert pizza.
Head judge for the event was chef Mike Larson, executive sous chef at Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino. He was joined by judges Rich Sabin, district franchise manager for Tim Hortons Café & Bake Shop; Andy Touma, chairman of the Niagara Falls City Council; and Chris Voccio, publisher of the Niagara Gazette. Angela Smith, host of the Niagara Falls Housing Authority's "People & Possibilities" show on Time Warner Cable Channel 21, emceed the contest.
