Every year, contest organizers select up to seven contestants to compete each year for the title of "Brooklyn's Pizza Eating Champion." The top two contestants receive an automatic invitation to compete for next year's event. Due to the overwhelming demand, Rocco's will review competitive eating backgrounds of all applicants and those who qualify will be put into a random drawing to select the additional contestants for the competition. That drawing will be held the week of the competition and the results posted on this website. Enthusiasts interested in entering the drawing to compete in this year's competition are requested to submit their application by May 30th. Late entries will not be considered for the drawing. The competition's organizers reserve the right to reject applicants at their discretion to ensure an acceptable level of competition is achieved.
