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.
