"Good Morning America's" Diane Sawyer, Robin Roberts and Charles Gibson helped select the winner of the first Cavit Gourmet Pizza Classic, sponsored by the Cavit Wine Co. in conjunction with Cooking Light Magazine.

Chef Billy Strynkowski, Mike Barz, Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts select the winner of the Cavit Gourmet Pizza Classic.

Chef Billy Strynkowski, a Cooking Light contributor, offered his critique of the pizzas. Wines to accompany them were selected by Laura DePasquale, the national director of the Palm Bay Fine Wine Team and one of 72 Americans to earn the official "master sommelier" title.

Strynkowski was a tiebreaker when he selected Cuomo's pizza as his favorite. Cuomo is a speech-language pathologist at East River Child Development Center, and also provides speech and language services at a private clinic.
