Cedar Falls Pizza Named Best In The State
Eastern Iowa is home to some delicious food, but did you know that it's also home to some of the best pizza in the state?
Earlier this summer, the fifth annual Pizza Fest went forward without a hitch. The celebration of everything cheesy is celebrated in Ankeny. Pizza and food vendors from all over the state come together for a day of pizza tasting and fun activities.
This year's fest was held on Saturday, June 12th. Vendors could enter into multiple categories to be considered for titles and awards including; Best of the Fest and Best Pizza-Like Creation.
Also, there were plenty of events for the public, including a kid's pizza dough tossing contest and a pizza box folding contest. One Cedar Falls eatery won big at this festival, and now carries a very prestigious pizza title.
There is no word on the date for 2022's fest yet.
There are plenty of other restaurants to check out in the Cedar Falls area, especially in the historic downtown area. Several restaurants have just opened recently in downtown Cedar Falls.
Some of the other restaurants that have opened up around the Cedar Valley include Carter House which is open right next to the historic Black Hawk Hotel. A brewery also will be opening in Waverly this fall.
