I'm friends with the guy who owns:

http://www.thedailymeal.com/101-best-pizzas-america-slideshow?slide=8 1" target="_self">#21 Zero Otto Nove, Bronx, N.Y. (Margherita)

and his pizzas friggin jam, and as much as I love Pepe's, a white clam pizza is not really a pizza, tasty as it is. It's stuff on bread. Tasty stuff on tasty bread. But that specific thing best pizza in the country? No.

White clam pie?  Geez, wasn't that guy told to pull out?


/sorry, had to

White clam sauce is one of the best pasta sauces, so it stands to reason it would be great on a pizza.

Nasty.

Don't put random detritus on flat bread and call it pizza. I could take a crap on a cracker and make it onto this list.

If you ate tomatoes first, you could beat most of this list.

NYC never had the best pizza in the US.  You can't dethrone that which never had a throne.
 
2014-08-29 07:26:18 AM  
It's all regional.  There is a pizza joint up the road a couple of miles from me (it's a one-horse shop) and that is the BEST pizza I've ever had.  I order from them at least once a week.
 
2014-08-29 07:28:40 AM  
New Haven does win the pizza competition, though I'll take Modern Apizza as my favorite. Amazing crust.
 
2014-08-29 07:29:34 AM  
I think I'd be happy with anything out of the top 100.
 
2014-08-29 07:29:51 AM  
Silly northerners.
Everybody KNOWS Papa John's is the best pizza.
 
2014-08-29 07:30:43 AM  
Like the headline. Give pizza chance. LOL.
 
2014-08-29 07:32:07 AM  
Dethroned? When was Pepe's not the best?

People in CT don't get involved in silly little disputes about who has the "best" anything, like those hooligans from NYC and Chicago.

We just know we have the best of everything.

/former resident. Not white enough for me in fairfield county anymore. Currently reside in the dartmouth area of NH. As white as snow.
//other than all those asian students.

The Chicago NYC battle is at least understandable. But Connecticut? GTFO.

I want to know what happened to the real Italian sausage? Few pizza joints use the real stuff.
Thin crust,minute amount if sauce, fresh basil and garlic, green peppers,Italian sausage and sliced mozzarella.

Yep, cause when I want quality pizza, I always think of some take and bake shiathole that reminds me of the inside of a subway sandwich shop.

/just a "fancy" supermarket pizza

abhorrent1: The Chicago NYC battle is at least understandable. But Connecticut? GTFO.


Well, CT (specifically New Haven) has an all-star lineup of pizza places. I personally preferred Modern in New Haven since it was plenty good and more accessible than Pepe's or Sally's.
 
2014-08-29 07:44:32 AM  
Pepe's and sals cant go wrong.


I know some guys who are serious about pizza who went all over the country tasting and scoring on their own and sals came out on top.

New haven is the home of the original hamburger joint as well. Still there and still using the same EQ from the late 19th century. A LOT of great food right around the green / Yale

Why is everyone always so down on seafood pizzas? They can be really good.
 
2014-08-29 07:47:59 AM  
For my money, you can't beat a good Detroit style pizza. Not quite a deep dish, not quite a pan crust, but all awesome.

You probably like pineapple and or anchovies on your pizza huh?
 
2014-08-29 07:50:22 AM  
Arguing about who has the best pizza is like arguing about the hottest supermodel (Hansel, he's so hot right now), or the best-tasting free beer.

Yup. It's the industrialization of pizza joints. I read a trade magazine (the joint's owner left it on a table), and it's amazing how much in the way of toppings has been pre-packaged. If you order sausage on a pizza, and see these uniform cubes that look like rabbit shiat, you've seen the product.
 
2014-08-29 07:52:11 AM  
Sorry no. It may be good, but pizza should be judged by the standard: red sauce and cheese.

It would be like saying a place that serves bratwurst makes the best hotdogs. It's a difference animal.
 
2014-08-29 07:53:31 AM  
Pagliai's pizza is my fav.
 
2014-08-29 07:53:38 AM  
Poppa's sloppy.
 
2014-08-29 07:54:21 AM  
Funny.  I live in Alburtis, PA (outside Allentown) and when my wife and I go to the in-laws in East Stroudsburg they will sometimes make a special trip to Ghigiarelli's (#101) in Old Forge for both their red and their white pizza.  It's some good shiate.

Papa John's is from Indiana.

Sad to NOT see Willington Pizza (Willington, CT) on the list. I'm not a Pepe's fan, it's okay though, just not my favorite.

\Works in New Haven
\\\Has to try a lot more places in New Haven for pizza

GTFO

Yup, both. Squid, shrimp and scallops are all good, too.

The only thing I dislike on pizza are additional starches: things like spaghetti or potato salad.

People who get all hung up about Hawaiian pizza tend to be grumpy sorts who die of heart disease at a young age.
 
2014-08-29 08:08:18 AM  
The white clam pie looks disgusting and, having clams in it, is something I would never even want to try.  #1?  Hmm.
 
2014-08-29 08:09:55 AM  
I find it hard to believe that 78 so-called "Pizza Experts" don't even know what a pizza is:

pizza
[peet-suh]
noun
1.a flat, open-faced baked pie of Italian origin, consisting of a thin layer of bread dough  topped with spiced tomato sauceand cheese, oftengarnished with anchovies, sa usage slices,mushrooms, e tc.

Oh, my mistake. I thought those were the people who eat Hawaiian pizza.

The hipsters who say za, instead of pizza should be the ones to get heart disease.

This is the best pizza in the U.S.? Really?
cdn-jpg.thedailymeal.com

Sorry, but I wouldn't pay $26.50 for a pizza to begin with, let alone one with a dried out and burnt crust.

On the other hand, for 5 bucks I can go to Little Caesars and get one of these.
burgersandbourbon.com
The fact that it only cost $5 makes it taste even better.

And where would this Pagliai's pizza be?  Not in Bowling Green, OH, perchance?

They get chlamydia.  People who call everybody 'hipster' get heart disease.
