It's that time of year where brackets are set and then busted but it's usually about boring stuff like college basketball.

Forget hoops. Pizza is life. But I do like the tournament idea so check out the 32 Rockford pizza places below and vote for 16 of your favorite.

The top 16 after voting closes will move on to the second round. After that, we'll get down to the "edible eight," then the "flavorful four" until we crown a champion that will be known forever as Rockford's Best Pizza Joint.

Vote for your top 16 pizza joints early, often, and tell your friends and fam because college basketball ends in April and good pizza is forever.

Top 16 voting ends Friday, March 29 at 10 a.m.
