Tortorice’s in Downers Grove voted ‘Best Pizza in District 99’ during Pizza Wars event

Event raises funds for District 99 Education Foundation

The second annual District 99 Education Foundation Pizza Wars has come and gone, and Tortorice’s Pizzeria was voted as having the “Best Pizza in District 99.”

“We weren’t sure how many pizzas to bring,” said Dakota Murtaugh, an employee at Tortorice’s Pizzeria. “Even though we ran out of pizza in the middle, it says a lot about how good our pizza was.”

Approximately 500 people came to the cafeteria of Downers Grove South High School on Thursday to attend the competition. The proceeds from Pizza Wars will help fund Learner Grants for the enrichment of District 99 curriculum.
