What to know about the Best of Dayton 2021 contest on Dayton.com and DaytonDailyNews.com.

After the first few days of heavy voting in Best of Dayton, people can’t get enough of telling us their pizza opinions.

The issue of pizza was so big, we had to create two contests: Best Pizza Restaurant and Best Square-Cut Pizza. Both are in the Top 10 for most votes among our 100 contests.

The finalists in Best Pizza Restaurant are: Joe’s Pizzeria, Marion’s Piazza, Old Scratch Pizza & Beer and Pizza Bandit.

The finalists in Best Square-Cut Pizza are: Cassano’s Pizza King, Joe’s Pizzeria and Marion’s Piazza.

And we also want to hear from you on our 98 other contests, including Best Donuts, which has been the clear leader in most votes since Best of Dayton began.
