Who Has Philly’s Best Pizza?


Look, we know you people have pretty strong opinions about, well, everything, really. As evidenced by our comments section, Twitter feed, Facebook page and pretty much every other platform imaginable, Foobooz readers are not shy about telling people what they like and what they don’t.

So here’s a chance for all of you to put those opinions to good use. We’re currently taking votes in a poll which will ultimately decide this year’s Best Pizza category in our annual Best Of Philly issue. All you’ve got to do is follow the link and have your say.

It’s democracy in action, people, so do your part. Because if the shop you love doesn’t ultimately come through as the winner, you’ll have no one but yourself (and the people of Philadelphia) to blame.
