Wisconsin native and passionate competitor on season 9 of "Top Chef," Grayson Schmitz, is coming to town Sunday, March 4 for a special event with Streetza Pizza.
Grayson lives in New York City, but was born in New Holstein.
Grayson will be at the Verlo Mattress Factory Store at 6501 W. Layton Ave. in Greenfield beginning at 1 p.m., and she’ll not only meet and greet fans but she’ll use her chef talents to create two new pizzas.
"We are truly honored to have such an accomplished chef and vivacious person help us create amazing pizzas for an amazing cause," said Scott Baitinger, president of Streetza Pizza.
Grayson is making a "Sex in the Mouth" slice and a "Like a Meatball" slice. Sounds good, hey? You’ll be able to try both pizzas and vote for your favorite via the OnMilwaukee.com Facebook page. A small $5 donation to Independence First, a nonprofit serving Milwaukee region with a vision for full inclusion of people with disabilities, gets you a small slice of both pizzas. Verlo will be making an additional donation to IndependenceFirst’s programs for each mattress purchased during the event.
"Grayson is a fun, driven woman who pursued her life goals to be a Top Chef – People with disabilities get assistance from IndependenceFirst to achieve their life goals to live independently and be successful." said Carol Voss, PR & Marketing Director for IndependenceFirst. "And, we love to have fun too!" added Voss.
Your vote will determine which slice gets a permanent spot on the Streetza menu.
Here’s a bit more about each slice:
Sex In the Mouth Pizza
Béchamel sauce topped with emmentaler and gruyere cheese, pancetta,
caramelized onion and caraway seeds.
Like A Meatball Pizza
Red sauce, béchamel sauce, meatballs, roasted cherry tomatoes,
sauteed mushrooms and Togarashi. Topped with fontina, mozzarella and
Streetza pizza, Independence First, celebrity chef Grayson Schmitz and OnMilwaukee.com all together. Sounds like a great Sunday to me. See you there!
