Columbus pizzeria recognized in international competition


A local restaurant from the valley takes home high marks in an international pizza competition in Las Vegas.

Cerrones Brick Oven Pizzeria placed third as the best pizzeria in the southeast and 18th overall. 

The International Pizza Expo is the largest pizza competition in the United States. It’s held each year in Las Vegas, NV where the nation’s best pizza makers  come together and compete for bragging rights for the best pie.

The owner of Cerrones, Leo Dicesaris, was thrilled about the recognition. 

"You know it was a really exciting experience especially for a small local pizza shop here in Columbus, GA, it was huge,” said Dicesaris.

This was Dicesariss' first time participating in the competition and he says they went there with the focus to produce an authentic pizza and to establish their name as a quality pizzeria.
