The NYC Pizza Festival Was a ‘Scam’ and People Want Refunds [PHOTOS]

It was so bad, in fact, that the New York Attorney General is opening an investigation. 

They’re calling it the “Fyre Fest of Pizza.” Yes, it was that bad.

Over the weekend, the New York City Pizza Festival was held (sorta) in Brooklyn. Attendees paid $55 per person, or $75 for VIP, for a day of pizza tasting. The event was described as follows:

New York City’s Pizza Festival is a day long celebration of the dough, cheese, tasty sauces and delicious toppings.

New York City makes the best pizza in the country, we are delighted to present an eclectic tasting of the best pizza in NYC?! Heck, we will conduct an anonymous vote to settle the NYC styled Pizza against Chicago Deep Dish pizza wars!

Whether it be pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, sausage, black olives, bacon, green peppers, extra cheese, plain or even experimental combos, there will be pizza for taste buds of all types!

Instead, it was held in a “shady Brooklyn parking lot,” and festival-goers were served pizza that looked like this:

Not only that, but the festival said that they were having problems getting pizza delivered to the venue. AKA, most booths were empty.

And the pizza that WAS there didn’t look very good, either.

It was so bad, in fact, that not only are attendees calling it a “scam” and demanding refunds, but the New York Attorney General has opened an investigation into it.

Everybody, remember – just because you brought pizza to work one day for your coworkers, doesn’t mean you’re qualified to throw a “pizza festival.” Especially in the biggest city in the country, which is known for its pizza.
