                     TRIBUTE TO THE ZIPP'S PIZZARIA

                        Wednesday, June 8, 2016

  Mr. YOUNG of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Zipp's 
Pizzaria of Adair, Iowa for winning the 2016 Iowa Tourism Office's 
Pizza Madness Award from the Iowa Tourism Office.
  Iowa Tourism Office announced their contest search for the best pizza 
in Iowa in mid-March 2016 and after nearly 15,000 entries, the votes 
cast named Zipp's Pizzaria, an iconic small establishment nestled in 
western Iowa. The one-time ``take out only'' pizza parlor is now a full 
service restaurant known statewide for its signature taco pizza.
  This year's winning entrant was a local hometown cafe, like so many 
of those in Iowa. Zipp's Pizzaria has all the markings of a great pizza 
parlor--with extra helpings of community pride and dishing up a tailor-
made private recipe for its specialty taco pizza. Owner Jim Zimmerline 
accepted the award, noting he is humbled by the attention but is 
willing to give away their winning philosophy: never skimp on the 
ingredients. He said, ``Not every pizza is the same. A lot of love goes 
into it. Everything is fresh.''
  I commend Jim Zimmerline and the staff at Zipp's Pizzaria for 
creating an outstanding pizza. I urge my colleagues in the U.S. House 
of Representatives to join me in congratulating Zipp's Pizzaria for 
winning 2016 Iowa Tourism Office's Pizza Madness Award. I wish Jim and 
all of the staff nothing but the best
