The Pizza Pool: Pizzeria Paradiso vs. Ella's Wood Fired Pizza
Who makes the best pizza in Washington? You tell us!
Comments () | Published August 28, 2009

UPDATE: This poll is closed; Ella's won! 

Who makes the best pizza in Washington? You tell us! We're asking you to vote in the first Pizza Pool, a brackets-style contest that will narrow 32 pizzas to one winner. For a refresher on how the brackets will work, head here.

To see today's match up, check below. 

Pizzeria Paradiso: Stick with what comes out of the wood oven at this long-standing area pizza fave. Our favorites are the Atomica, with salami and hot-pepper flakes, and the simple Margherita, which lets the pizza's elemental ingredients shine.

Ella's Wood Fired Pizza: Nearly 20 wood-fired pies are offered on this Penn Quarter spot's menu, including specialty combos such as the Lombardi (caramelized onions, gorgonzola, and rosemary) and the Polpotini (meatballs, leeks, and parmesan).

Did you know? If you click the links of each of the restaurants' names, you can leave your own review of their pizza at that page!  

This poll will stay open until noon on Friday.

*To help keep this contest fair, we've elected to use an IP address-based poll. This means that if you are voting from an office or network setting, not everybody will be able to vote. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we hope you'll encourage coworkers to vote from their home computers.
