I present to you: The 2020 Douglas Best Home-Delivered Pizza Poll. With sixteen* entrants from across Douglas (and Onchan), this is your chance to vote for who you think the best home delivered pizza is in Douglas.

Short version: You can vote in this Twitter thread. Just vote for your favourite place out of the available options.

Long version: Read on…

Since Twitter only allows four options in a poll, we need several rounds of voting. The entrants have been divided into four groups of four, with six pizza places being seeded.

The seeds**:

1Just Pizza & Pasta
4Home Run
6Pizza Napoli

The winner will then be whichever Douglas Pizza Place receives the most votes in the Grand Final.

*The entrants were chosen by me, using feedback from other people on Twitter. Then, I had a look on Google to see who to add to bring it up to sixteen entrants. If your favourite place is not included, blame their search engine marketing. I’m just a guy who likes pizza.

**The top six seeds were arbitrarily decided by me. The rest of the pizza places were randomly allocated to the different brackets.

***After the seeds were allocated, the rest were randomly allocated.
