Items on this site tend to roll off the page pretty quickly, sometimes disappearing before you've had the chance to check them out. That's fine with goofy pizza-related news items, but our reviews are another thing — I don't want the pizza-obsessed out there (that would be you) to miss any opportunity to try a killer pizzeria. So I've gone back through the Slice archives for 2010 and have indexed all the reviews in one handy post. Hope you discover something new!
'The Year That Was 2010' on Serious Eats
At one point more than a year ago, Slice'r famdoc suggested we do a weekly poll. We really started this feature in earnest in 2010, with a pizza-related question for you each Monday (minus a few weeks we missed).
Some polls were great and revealed more than we thought they would (like the charring one, which was like a group therapy session). And some polls ... well ... all I can say that in coming up with a new topic week after week there are bound to be some stupid ones here and there.*
Gathered here are most of this year's polls, with their current standings. Please note that many of these had 3 or more options, so "winning" percentages may not be 51% or higher.
Also note that if you feel strongly about any of these, the polls are always open, so go vote if you want to sway the outcome.

10. 8 Pizzas That Haunt My Dreams, 2010 »
I think this is going to be an annual thing now (see 8PTHMD 2009). I ate a lot of pizza in 2010, but these eight pies from around the country* continue to haunt my dreams. Like last year, I'm not declaring these "the best," per se, just eight pizzas I keep thinking about and wanting more of.
