A big pizza pie festival on the city's North Side was under way this weekend. This is the second year for the event, but the pizza-eating contest is new this year.

Contestants are pitted against each other to see who can put the most slices into their mouths in the shortest amount of time.

Elliott Rader of Bucktown won the contest. He ate an entire pizza plus a quarter of another in just eight minutes.
