Omaha Pizza Bracket - Omaha's favorite pizza: Mangia Italiana


(This contest ended on April 5, 2021.)

On March 15, we revealed the first-round matchups in our pizza bracket and opened the voting. We’ve seeded each Omaha burger, just like the NCAA basketball tournament bracket, and your vote will help choose who moves on. There will be blowout victories and shocking upsets, and then we’ll do it all over again for the next round. And you can vote again in every round!

You can use our printable bracket to help make decisions before you submit your votes: Omaha Pizza Bracket (PDF)

We’ll crown a winner — a new champion in the divisive contest of Omaha’s Favorite Pizza — on Monday, April 5.

Oh, and we’re giving away a $50 gift card to the winning pizza place. Each time you vote for any matchup (up to 63 votes during the tournament!), we’ll add your name to the drawing.

We’ll be sharing content on social media daily, and we even invited some local celebrities to share their picks for the city’s favorite pizza during the tournament.


  1. Voting dates
    Round 1 voting: March 15-18

  2. The bracket allows one vote per matchup per round. You can vote for each of the 32 matchups in the first round, for example, but you can’t vote 20 times in a row for your favorite pizza.
  3. You must share your name and a working email address to vote. I won’t give your contact info to anyone else, but I will sign you up for the weekly newsletter. If you enter a fake email address, we’ll delete your votes.
  4. This isn’t a sponsored contest. No one’s paying us to push votes their way. The people will decide!
