Pizza Baker and John Reynolds, Caterer will compete for the best wood fired pizza at Central Michigan University's weekly Food Truck Friday on June 17.

Each week, two food trucks are invited to compete, with one food truck being voted the champion. The winner will be invited back to defend its title against other winners at the end of the 2016 season.

Four other confirmed food trucks will be at the event: Los Jalapenos, Killer Hibachi, Killer Griller and Up Dog. The friendly competition will be held every Friday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m at the CMURC at 2625 Denison Drive.

Los Jalapenos was named the first champion of the season and The Gourmet Cupcake Shoppe crowned the second week.
