SAUGUS — Nine contestants stood in a row in front of a long white table at Prince Pizzeria in Saugus Thursday night, each one with two pizza pies and two pitchers of water sitting in front of them.

After a countdown from five, the contestants dug in and stuffed their faces to try and win the $500 grand prize at Prince’s first-ever pizza-eating competition.

After 10 minutes of eating, Jamie McDonald of Hartford, Conn. took home the prize by downing four full pizza pies.
