Patch Pizza Playoffs: Who Do You Love?

The most-loved pizza championship round is upon us. Vote for your favorite, tell us why you love them and trust in the tongues of eight community taste testers!

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Great 8, the winners of first-round voting in the Patch Pizza Playoffs: , Chicago Heights; , Evergreen Park; , Homewood; , Orland Park; , Palos Heights; , New Lenox; , Frankfort; , Tinley Park.

Our championship showdown will determine the most-loved pizza in south suburban Patchland. There are two ways you can show your love.

1. VOTE: From today through Sunday at 10 p.m. cast a vote in our poll. Your votes count for one-third of the points in our weighted scoring system. 

2. EXPRESS YOURSELF: Leave a stellar review of your favorite place on the eatery's Patch Places business profile. What do you love about the sauce, the dough, the cheese, the sausage ... the cute pizza delivery boy? The more good reviews, the more points. Reviews posted from today through Sunday at 10 p.m. will count toward one-third of the final score.

The final third of the vote will involve eight lucky Patch readers.

3. TASTE TEST: We've invited one Patch community member from each of the eight first-round brackets to a pizza tasting, which will take place on Thursday, Feb. 16. They will rate the pies on a scale of 0-5 (with 5 being the best). Each pizza place will be able to choose the type of toppings and pie for the tasting, putting their best pie forward. Their votes will determine one-third of the final score.

Cast your vote. Then click on the restaurant's name below to get to their profile, where you can submit a review.

This isn't the same Pizza Pete that used to be on 111th street by Oak Park ave in Worth that you're talking about???

We would also like to take an opportunity to thank everyone for their support! We enjoyed seeing many faces this weekend. Thank you New Lenox and all the others that voted for us!

Thanks, Wendy. I hope that is what people take away from this playoff. We are celebrating our local businesses and the undeniable love affair southsiders have with their favorite pizza. Here at Patch we not only cover our towns, but celebrate what makes them special. For me, that is in large part the small business owners who form the backbone of a town. I hope this encourages everyone to support those places that support your community.
