A TEAM of students from St Mary’s College called the ‘Maristenos’ have been named the overall winners of the Eno’ Pizza Apprentice competition.
Participating teams had to develop and choose the design, branding, ingredients, marketing, and promotion for their pizza creations. They also selected charities which received 10 per cent of the proceeds of their pizza sales.
The Marist team created a unique curry-style pizza called the ‘Currizza’ which will now feature on the Dundalk restaurant’s menu until the end of the month with 10 per cent of the sale proceeds going to the Maristeno’s chosen charity, St Vincent de Paul.
Eno’ Bar & Grill hosted the official prizegiving for the Eno’ Pizza Apprentice competition on Friday, May 4 with a ceremony at the restaurant.
Each team was presented with a cheque for their chosen charity with Eno’ Bar & Grill donating a total of almost e400 to seven deserving causes.
The winner of the ‘Name the Competition’ category was awarded to St Louis Secondary School who came up with the name ‘Eno Pizza Apprentice’.
The prize for the ‘Best Pizza Name’ category was awarded to the O’Fiaich team for their ‘Pizza Rossini’. The Best Marketing category was won by the ‘Maristenos’.
The ‘Most Pizzas Sold’ award was won by the St Vincent’s ‘It’s a bit cheesy’ team for their ‘Italian Trio’ pizza which raised e118.80 for the North Louth Hospice and Home Care Foundation.
Another winner (combined Facebook votes and sales) was the St Vincent’s ‘Piece A’Heaven’ team.
