We asked you to tell us your favorite pizza in Pittsburgh and you delivered. You nominated hundreds of the city’s and suburbs’ beloved pizza parlors. We crunched the data to see which shops got the most votes and then checked that against reviews and our expert opinions to seed a list of 32 contenders, which will now face off in an NCAA-style bracket. We're on a quest to find Pittsburgh's Ultimate Pizza. Which of these 32 beloved Pittsburgh pizza parlors should make the Sweet Sixteen? And what is Pittsburgh-style pizza anyway? Find out here and cast your vote.
Sure, Uber's self-driving cars are the most noticeable, but they're not the only company doing testing in Pittsburgh. But where *exactly* in and around Pittsburgh are autonomous cars on the road? We're making a map to find out and need your help.
