Food Fight: Where Is The Best Pizza In New London And Waterford?

Nominate your favorite places for our informal showdown

There have been some tumultuous topics in this area in recent months, from police department shakeups in New London to quarry spats in Waterford. And while we've seen a lot of conversation on these subjects, we know our audience also has a lot to say when it comes to food.

Recently, the Patch editors in Groton and Stonington decided to hold an informal "food fight" to see which pizza parlor they felt was the best in the two communities. After collecting nominations, readers there cast their ballots for the top picks and ended up choosing Stonington Pizza Palace.

Congratulations to them, but what about if you're looking to get a slice closer to home? There are a lot of good pizza places in New London and Waterford, and Waterford Patch editor Paul Petrone and I want to know which one you think is the top pick among the non-chain places. Here's how it works:

Post a nomination in the comments. We'll take these until 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

On Thursday morning, we'll post the top six picks and a poll on which place you think is the best. We'll take votes until 5 p.m. on Friday, and the winner will be announced on Monday morning.

We encourage you to share this contest on your Twitter or Facebook feed, especially if you're pulling for a certain restaurant.

You can also post reviews of both New London and Waterford restaurants on the listings we've provided. So without further ado, here are the places seeking your nominees!

Polls are closed by my clock. One last buzzer-beater from Facebook: Sarah Ziolkovski Orr with Illiano's (she didn't say which one).

Still voting.... Illiano's- New London Supreme- Waterford If Acropolis Pizza didn't sell their business to Antinore's then Acropolis would be my favorite!! To the owners of Antinore's PLEASE stop making your pizza so oily. Just a suggestion from someone that wants to eat at your resturant :-)

I agree, Paul, about Recovery Room being the best in NL, however, for white pizza! Otherwise it's Crown in Wtfd.

Ocean pizza has the best of everything including the pizza. My husband and I have never had a bad meal there in over 30 years. Their fish and chips is the best in CT. their pizza is cooked to perfection everytime and the sauce is excellant.
