Voting in the Pizza Cup is well underway and Round 2 sees 32 still alive … so now’s the time to order up.
To aid you in that task, we’re highlighting pizza deals and specials around town for you to begin your indulgence – we’ve found specials at just over half the field of 32.
Note: some of these deals are from Chinese-language group buying sites such as Dianping, Lashou and Meituan and therefore will require fluent Chinese (or a fluent friend) to fully indulge — we’ve marked them accordingly.
In the mean time, take a look at the results of the first round here or cast your ballot in Round 2 and help us select the Sweet Sixteen!
