With the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments just around the corner, we’re joining the fun of bracket competitions with a faceoff of our own.

Last year, you helped us name the best brewery (Meanwhile Brewing) plus, you’ve also helped us pick the best food truck and best taco. This year, we asked you to share your favorite pizza in Austin. Now — thanks to you and the help of a random generator — we have the official lineup for our bracket.

And the bracket winner is… Home Slice Pizza, voted best pizza shop in Austin by our readers and social media followers in our ATXtoday pizza bracket. We can’t say we’re surprised, after all, it is the South Congress Avenue original and “Queen of Pies.”

We want to extend a major “thank you” to all of you for participating in our bracket challenge the past few weeks. We’ve had a blast seeing how the votes shook out, and we hope you did too. Looking for more pizza places around town? Check out our guide.

How to participate
