The Bay Area's Pizza My Heart became the first American pizza to ever win the "Best Traditional Pizza" prize at the International Pizza Competition in Las Vegas.

The local pizza palace, which was started in Capitola,  competed against pizzas from all over the world.

“We’ve always believed our recipe was the best out there and we’ve worked hard to put the best ingredients into our pizzas, so this win is incredibly gratifying. How cool is it that a pizza that started in Santa Cruz beat out pizzas from Naples, Verona, New York, Canada and beyond," Pizza My Heart owner, Chuck Hammers said. 

There are now 21 locations around the Bay Area and Monterey.
