The Morning Star is cooking up another friendly competition. This time, to determine who has the best pizza in Vernon.

Seven local restaurants are fired up and taking part in the contest, which will see local residents determine who the winner is.

The contestants are: Billy D’s Family Restaurant, Casa de Mario’s Pizzaria and Donair, The Italian Kitchen Pizzeria, Jim’s Place, The Longhorn Pub, Monashee’s Bar and Grill and Panago.

“Following the highly successful Best Burger  and Best Wings contests, these local restaurants have stepped up to the challenge to compete for the coveted title of Vernon’s Best Pizza,” said Ian Jensen, Morning Star publisher.

“But it’s you, the customers, who will determine the winner.”

The contest runs until Feb. 14 at www.vernonmorningstar.com (under the contest tab on the top right corner).

You can vote once a day and the winning restaurant will be featured in The Morning Star.

One lucky voter will also receive a $200 gift certificate from the winning restaurant.

Watch The Morning Star for ongoing coverage of the contest.
