Red Tomato Pies in Williams Lake has won the 2013 Saputo Pizza Hall of Fame title.

Jason and Amber Akeson learned last week that they had won the people’s choice vote, not only for B.C., but for the whole country.

“It’s cool,” Jason says. “We are just kind of taking it in right now. We are speechless.”

He says they were told there was a close race between first and second place.

They were also notified that their prize is a trophy and some Saputo mozzarella cheese.

The online voting for Pizza Hall of Fame title took place across Canada last fall.

Jason says thank you to everyone who voted for them. The trophy will be prominently on display when it arrives.
