Local pizza restaurant places third in the country in competition

A local pizza place is ranked as the third best pizza in the country. The chef and owner of Palo Mesa Pizza in Arroyo Grande competed in the American Pizza Championship. His winning pizza was the Michaela Pizza. It's a pizza named after his four-year-old daughter. It's a hand-tossed pizza with homemade red sauce, pepperoni, red onion, bacon, garlic, jalapenos, pineapple, and cilantro. He placed third in the country, and he's been invited to represent the United States in Italy for the 2014 World Pizza Championship. Earlier this year, the pizza restaurant placed as fifth best pizza in the world. Palo Mesa has two locations. One is on the Mesa in Arroyo Grande where Halcyon meets Highway 1. The other is in the Walmart shopping center.
