Black Butler XI nabs the lead because at least thirty-two LX regulars indicated it as a GET!, the total DO WANT! outstripping 07-GHOST's, even past the 22 votes the josei manga received when it was first advised on 22 June. 07-GHOST shoulda stayed where it was if it wanted the headline pix.

The results of the pizza match are out and winner is...?! But traps still await a wary Azuma who has come this far, defeating foe after strong foe. Can Azuma and Pantasia defy destiny? Raise that hammer of justice upon those cruel adversaries!
For specificity comparison —
The pizza-making competition continues as Pantasia opponent Marco makes a pizza so tasty it'll turn even the toughest bread-battle judges into baby birds. In order to compete, Azuma's seafood-based concoction must also have the power to turn man into bird—or at least amphibian! When the contest progresses to pastries, Azuma's unpleasant opponent Yukino uses her supernaturally cold hands and a multi-layered con job to reverse all of Pantasia's fortune. Will Azuma's dreams disappear into thin air? [From VIZ Media's Yakitate!! Japan, Vol. 22 blurb]
