For this year's World Pizza Championships, the United States has a good chance of winning.

That's because three local chefs are on the U.S. Pizza team. With their powers combined, they're sure to make something great.

Michael LaMarca of Master Pizza, Jason Samosky of Samosky's Homestyle Pizzeria and Mike Russo of Romeo's Pizza are all going to Parma, Italy for the competition.

They’re practicing with a portable stove to prepare for the competition.

The three of them will work with other chefs from around the U.S. in hopes of winning the championships.

LaMarca, Samosky and Russo joined Channel 3 News at 7 to talk about their winning strategy.
