The Pizza Pool: Mia’s vs. The Italian Store

Who makes the best pizza in Washington? You tell us!

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.

Mia's Pizzas: This convivial pizzeria's honey-hued crusts—drizzled with olive oil before and after being baked—are chewy and full of yeasty flavor, and toppings are good quality, whether mozzarella and pepperoni or Gruyère and ham.

The Italian Store: This always-crowded Arlington deli doles out wide New York-style slices dripping with gooey mozzarella.

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 3 PM on Thursday.

*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.
