National Pizza Party Day falls on the third Friday in May, which means this year we get to celebrate on the 20th. Fortunately, we have a ton of great, locally-owned pizza restaurants in the Evansville area to do just that. But, which one is the "upper crust" when the craving strikes?

When my family and I go out of town for vacation, we often try to hit a restaurant or two the locals swear by instead of rolling into some chain restaurant we don't have here in the Tri-State, because if anyone knows the best places to eat in a certain city, it's the people who live there.

That's why I recently put together a list of over 55 restaurants in the area that specialize in making pizza and let you vote on your favorites. After giving you a few days to "let your voice be heard," I've tallied the votes to find the top 10 places (plus, five "honorable mentions" just outside the top 10) you say are a must-go when you must-have pizza.

So, let's spread the word, and get these local eateries some national attention
