2013 pizzathon: The best pizza in Reno is from LaVecchia

The Greater Reno Grub and Gripe Group gathered at the home of Bill and Linda to hold its 2013 version of the pizzathon to pick the best pizza in the Reno area.
Here are links to two prior pizzathons
This one was a little less formal than the prior pizzathons. But we did pick a winner. When the dust settled, the group picked La Vecchia as having the best pizza in Reno. LaVecchia scored big for it’s toppings and its crust. Nearly everyone, it seems, picked its crust the best.
I brought LaVecchia and I brought the northern Italian version with the cured meat called speck. It is distinctive and delicious. I also brought a vegetarian version.
The surprise second place finisher was Papa Murphy’s that was baked in the kitchen where we gathered. People seemed to like its toppings the best.
None of the pizzas were bad, though. And of course there was plenty of wine consumed.
