The Pizza Pool: Piola vs. RedRocks Pizzeria

Who makes the best pizza in Washington? We're asking you to decide. Today, we kick off the second round of voting in our Pizza Pool.

UPDATE: This contest is now closed; RedRocks won! Who makes the best pizza in Washington? You tell us! We're asking you to vote in the first Washingtonian.com 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. 

Piola: With roots in Treviso, Italy, pizza chain Piola has outposts in Buenos Aires, Playa Del Carmen, Miami Beach and… Rosslyn. The ultra-thin crusts cooked in a brick oven come adorned with everything from the standard tomato/basil/mozz’ to carpaccio with brie and arugula.

RedRocks Pizzeria: This Columbia Heights pizzeria's Neapolitan-style pies are cooked at 750 to 900 degrees in a wood-burning, dome-shaped brick oven. Toppings—such as San Marzano tomatoes, arugula, capers, buffalo mozzarella, and Sicilian oregano—keep with the Italian vibe.

This poll will stay open until 3 PM on Tuesday.

*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.
