Some of the area's most recognizable chefs will battle to see who can whip up the best pizza pie at a new fundraising event, Pizza Slam, Sunday afternoon at Bigalora in Rochester Hills.

Mabel Gray chef James Rigato, John Vermiglio of Grey Ghost, Takoi's Brad Greenhill and chef Kate Williams of Lady of the House will battle the head honcho, Bigalora's own Luciano DelSignore to see whose pizza is the favorite. 

Attendees get to sample and vote, as will a panel of judges. Bigalora will serve strolling food and there is a cash bar. 

Tickets, $50, are on sale in advance via Eventbrite.com. Proceeds benefit Detroit Dog Rescue, a nonprofit no-kill dog shelter for homeless and stray pups of Detroit. 

Pizza Slam is 3-7 p.m. Sunday. Bigalora is at 6810 N. Rochester in Rochester Hills.
