Who Has The Best Pizza In Madison? (Poll)

New Haven-style or Greek? Plain mozz or loaded? When it comes to pizza, people who live in Madison have lots of options. Which is your favorite? And why?


When Madison Patch reader George was a kid growing up, he remembers every Saturday night was pizza night.

"As a child growing up in Guilford in the 60's every Saturday night our aunts, uncles and cousins visited and dinner was Bobby's Apizza," he said. "One uncle worked for Foxon Park, another for a dairy that was in the Chesire area, so there was always plenty of ice cream and soda too. Great memories."

Bobby's Pizza is one of several Madison-area pizzerias that continue to create fond memories for people who live in town and nearby. We have pizza places that specialize in New Haven-style pizzas with crisp, crackling crusts. Others go for more hearty fare and Greek-style pizza that melts in your mouth like butter. The options when it comes to toppings are only as limited as your imagination. And we even have a few places that deliver.

Which is your favorite pizza place? We've included a list below of places that are in Madison, adjacent to Madison, or deliver to Madison. Let us know which is your favorite and why.

Directly under the list is a statement that says this is not a scientific vote. The reason for this is that people can vote as many times as they want. The best advertisement for a business is word of mouth, not a non-scientific poll on the patch. Not to sound mean Mr. Nuzzo, but it sounds like you are upset that you are loosing-who cares! If people like your place, then they will be repeat customers as well as tell friends and family. But coming on here and telling people not to vote numerous times a day or that it is an unfair vote makes your business look worse, than loosing to a poll...just sayin

I think based on your behavior in the comments and you encouraging people to vote for you on your facebook fan page, I'll never patronize your establishment. Please learn some decorum and how to be a gracious loser.

Hi Barry. Thanks for your note. I discussed it with our technical department and my supervisors. As it turns out, you can vote more than once. An Internet poll is not the most ideal vote-collection system in the world, as we all know. That's why we always strive to be 100 percent clear with our readers at Patch that this is not in any way a scientific poll. Our readers' choice features are designed to be a fun and completely friendly expression of our collective passion for great food, great service or a great product, all close to home. It's also a fantastic way for small and medium business owners — the lifeblood of our local economy — to show how much they appreciate their customers. We take a look at comments, reviews as well as the poll, not just any one aspect, in communicating back to readers who rises to the top in readers' minds. And even if one business mobilizes more "votes" over another, everyone comes away with a lot of visibility, great displays of loyalty and, best yet, our corner of the web now has a lot more information about local businesses. We live and shop and eat pizza here too, so if anyone wants to learn more about how they can interact with their customers on Patch or have any suggestions for future readers' choice features, email me at pem.mcnerney@patch.com.

Wait, vote once per day??? How does that even make sense. A vote is something you do once. Voting again tomorrow sounds like cheating to me.

I think I see a reality show in the making: "Pizza Wars" (TM). On one side- the ultra-competitive southside pizza maker- as quick with a defensive reply to online criticism as he is with one of those pizza slicer-things. Happy to encourage his loyal supporters to show their loyal support, but just a little testy when the other guy's loyal supporters turn out to be twice as loyal. And the other guy: the northender who...well...who doesn't really say much of anything...Well, we're gonna have to work on his schtick a little. Quiet and humble doesn't play well in reality TV. And the real winner of the these wars: the Patch Lady, who knows darn well that it's all about site hits ("Let's have another poll!!"). Coming soon to a cable channel near you.
