A Ranking of the Best B-Town Pizza Joints

I don't know what it is about going to college but for some reason pizza becomes your life. In high school I remember hating pizza but now I'll eat it whenever and wherever. If it's 2 AM and my roommate walks into my room craving food, hundred percent of the time we'll end up ordering cheese pizza with cheese sauce. Also not ashamed to admit that if there's an event going on outside with free pizza we'll go grab pizza and leave immediately (sorry not trying to play in your bounce house). Once again, I don't know what it is about college but once you get here it's like pizza is the best food in the world.

So before we get started, here are some totally out there facts about our food crush:

1. In the United States, 4% of pizza eaten by children is for breakfast.

2. In 2011, pizza was considered a vegetable by the government.

3. The most expensive pizza in the world costs $12,000.

4. Americans eat about 100 acres of pizza each day which is equivalent to 350 slices per second.

So, in the sprit of this pizza obsession I asked 500 - that's dedication I know - Indiana University students what their favorite pizza place in Bloomington is. The results were narrowed down to 4 main pizza joints: King Dough, Pizza X, Avers, and Mother Bears (not in that order).

The results were... drumroll please...

4. King Dough - 7% of voters

Coming in fourth place is King Dough. Located on W 6th St., King Dough is known for using local ingredients. While this one of the more expensive of the four and not typically conducive to those late night munchies, definitely drag your parents along sometime if they come to visit.

2. Pizza X - 15% of voters

75 people said Pizza X was their one true pizza love. It's crazy that our second place pizza place is 275 people behind the first place victor. You know those iconic Pizza X cups? Well, fun fact: Pizza X orders over 300,000 of those a year.

1. Mother Bears - 70% of voters

No surprise here that Mother Bears is the overwhelming winner. 350 IU students out of 500 that were asked chose this awesome pizza place.

Dear Mother Bears,

You have a pizza our hearts.

However, some people were not too impressed by this hype and stated their opinions: "Mother Bears is completely overrated." and "Would rather eat Papa Johns." Well, tell that to their always busy restaurant and good reviews.

No matter which pizza place you prefer, you bet we'll eat from any of these places to get our pizza fix.
