Miami stand up! Steve Lieber, Director of Operations of Rack's Italian Bistro and Market in North Miami Beach won the American Pizza Championship. Steve Lieber is officially the American Pizza Champion.

He won the recent competition in Orlando with his black truffle pizza. Steve went pie to pie against nine other competitors from around the U.S. Judges scored pies on appearance (crust, cheese & toppings, overall), taste (crust, sauce, toppings), and viability (commercially practical, creativity, cultural representative).

The competition was sponsored by PMQ, a pizza industry trade journal.

Steve Lieber earned a spot on the United States Pizza Team which will compete at the World Pizza Championship in Salsomaggiore, Italy in 2010.
