The winning pizza?
"It's a new pizza we came up with about three months ago and it's called the spinachi -- a mix of spinach, sausage, and a few surprises, like dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, feta cheese and asiago cheese. Just something totally different. With the cranberries you have your sweeter, salty with the feta. ... It went well."

Competitions keep Jason and his crew on their toes.
