Eat an eighteen-inch pie within eight minutes at Roccos Pizzeria in Bay Ridge, and not only will you get it for free, but youll be entered into the Brooklyn Pizza Eating Contest, happening June 6 at 3 p.m. So far, were told, only three out of nine people have finished the pie, crust and all (the others have had to pay for it). You can come in after 9 p.m. tonight and tomorrow, or anytime during the week, but know that even if you do manage to qualify for the eating contest and its $500 cash prize, youll likely be going up against seasoned gurgitators such as last years contenders Gentleman Joe Menchetti, Dale Mouth of the South Boone, and the three-time winner, Sal Carbone, whose record is 22 slices in 12 minutes.
