Paisan’s Pizzeria and Bar, 6226 W. Ogden Ave, won the Berwyn Development Corporation’s promotional “Berwyn’s Best Pizza” competition last month. Paisan’s Supreme Pizza, topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions, came up the winner..
Waldo Cooney’s Pizza, Bubba’s Place, Benny’s Pizza and Nonno’s Pizza also competed for the award, determined by a public poll and blind taste test by local foodies and public figures, including Brendan O’Connor of Big Guys Sausage Stand, Brian Pabst of the City of Berwyn, Alma Ortiz of BMO Harris Bank, Jamie Kucera of Pav YMCA, John Aranza of Autre Monde Café & Spirits, and Nancy Vesecky of Vesecky’s Bakery.
According to Stacy Stott, General Manager, Paisan’s Pizzeria set itself apart from the competition.
“We use super premium ingredients and everything is made from scratch daily,” said Stott, “It’s a very cool place with excellent service.”
Paisan’s Pizzeria also offers new specialty pizzas every Friday and is planning to open a new location in Lisle.
