A local pizza company brought back some big awards after the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas.
Palo Mesa Pizza in Arroyo Grande entered into the Traditional Pizza Challenge.
Chef and owner, Michael Stevens, entered his homemade Italian sausage and fresh banana pepper pizza into the competition.
He ended up placing first in the Southwest Region Division of the U.S.
He went on to win 5th place for Best Pizza in the World.
Michael's pizza was judged by past winners, food critics, chefs, and pizza experts. It was graded on superior crust, sauce, cheese, toppings, overall taste, creativity, and visual appeal.
Palo Mesa Pizza has two locations in Arroyo Grande. One is where Halcyon meets Highway 1, and the other is off Rancho Parkway in the Walmart Shopping Center.
