Vote: The Most Loved Pizza in New Lenox

The Patch Pizza Playoffs: We're looking for the pizza lover's pizza. But we need your help, and your vote.

Getting ready for Sunday's game? Got the big screen TV and your favorite pizza place on speed dial? When the big game ends, there may be a champion but the debate over who's really the best will never end.

The same is true for pizza. But we're going to try to find The Most Loved Pizza in the Southland in Patch's first Pizza Playoffs.

Patch users have a lot to say on this.

  • "Papa Joes takes pride in every aspect of the business ... they have proven to have some of the best pizza in New Lenox!"
  • "Love (Italian Fiesta Pizzeria) pizza. None better. I live in central Illinois and I take some home with me everytime."
  • "(Little Joe's) pizza is great....nice thin crust...especially w/ all the fixin's."
  • Chicago Dough: "This is real pizza, not cheap fast food pizza like objects."

Here's our lineup for New Lenox. We're focusing solely on local pizza places — no regional or national chains. The pizza to garner the most votes in this round will advance to the championship round, facing off against winners from throughout South Suburban Patchland.

Talk up your favorite in the comments. Tell everyone why you love a particular pie!

Chicago Dough Company all the way! My friends and I love the buffet. My personal favorite is the buffalo chicken pizza, although most of my family prefers more "normal" toppings.

Stephane you proved my point. why would they continue to pile on votes when they were 300 or so ahead.....duh. And shocking...all those votes came and then died down. i wonder why if they kept promoting the votes were not a steady flow....weird huh? I am sure if you had a voting timeline you would find a couple hundred votes at least all within an hour....If you think this type of voting "could get interesting" than I can't help you. Tell me in life what kind of voting takes place like this? If they promoted like everyone said they probably would have won anyway....I merely pointed out that the voting system is dumb-cause it is. lets do another one and put speedways 2 for $2 pizza on the list and I will show you why the voting was set up wrong.

Hmmm, I think Darin, that you are taking a fun thing a little too far. It seems to be a local "fun" thing to do, vote for your favorite. Feel free to not participate or even read the articles if they are so upsetting to you! Relax and enjoy the Patch, or not!

Con Serned you are probably right. I just have a hard time dealing with false advertisement or cheating. And I really feel for any "Patch athlete of the week" who does not know you can vote as many times as you want-unlike any other competition they will ever be in. It's flawed, it's silly, but you are right it's just Patch.
