Oct. 21 Pizza Palooza benefits Meals on Wheels

Prescott Meals on Wheels will sponsor Prescott Pizza Palooza, the finest pizza competition and tasting festival in Arizona, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, in downtown Prescott.

There are four categories of pizza tasting — traditional, gluten-free, exotic and dessert. Enjoy entertainment, pizza dough-tossing competition, amateur-judged homemade pizza contest, kids’ corner and a pizza box art display/sale.

For adults, $15 buys 10 tastings; those 14 and younger get five tastings for $7. The beer and soda garden costs extra.

Proceeds benefit PMOW, which creates change in the community one meal at a time. Last year, more than 125 volunteers helped deliver and serve more than 58,000 meals to homebound seniors and disabled individuals. Deliveries provide not only a nutritious, hot meal but also a wellness check and precious moments of conversation.
