I used to live around the corner from Spacca Napoli.  Really good pies.  Glad they're being recognized.

Yeah no, not every great pizza joint in the northeastern US lies within 10 miles of Central Park.

Blaze in the Boston area is really good. The food and ingredients are better, but the model of having them make the pizza in front of you while you coach them on how to make it produces great results.

But there are many places in the Boston area that are good.

But I will not ever order a pizza at a place called "[town name] House of Pizza". I imagine your lack of creativity extends to the way you make your pizza.

Sorry, the model being like a Subway or Chipotle.

And for Chipotle, there are a few Los Amigos locations that allow you to do the same thing with burritos.

I think we found Lebron James fark handle. I kid. Seriously though, do Sabarros outside of Illinois sell Italian beef? The one within walking distance to me do, but I can't find the courage to get one(or their pizza)

Yes, yes, but what about their animatronic animal bands? Can they rock?

Bill's Pub in Mundelein, Il is still my go-to for thin crust, party cut, pie with an Old Style place. Great pizza with paper plates and taxidermied animals every 3 feet around the place, and the hand-carved bar. That place brings me back to the days going there and pouring the parking lot behind the pub with my dad. His brother, Jake, had a place in Buffalo Grove, but the pizza did not compare. Even after the divorce, Bill's ex kept the place up very respectfully. FYI, thin crust with local sausage and peppers is the norm; deep dish casserole is for the tourists. I never came across a deep dish until visiting after 20 years. Not bad, but not pizza.

Anywho, your local pizza is probably the best. Give the locals your business to keep the regional styles alive.

BTW, the absolute best was in a nothing town in West Virginia. Absolutely blew my mind until I learned that a large percentage of Italian immigrants settled there. Awesome pies, but nostalgia wins this one for me.

If you're ever in Cicero Il, hit Albano's or Falco's.

Than you for the suggestion. I will.

It may be a bit of nostalgia, but the best pizza for me was from a small place back in the first half of the 80s in San Clement call Original Sams. It was pretty much hand tossed NY style, though they rolled the crust at the edges so it was a bit thicker than most other places NY style I've seen. The kitchen was open so you did seem them tossing the dough which was fun as a kid.

They had a fairly large dining room with around a half dozen arcade cabinets, and they had a movie projector where they played second run and older movies. First time I ever saw War of the Worlds was there. They'd bring the pizza straight from the oven to the table. Frequently so hot the cheese would melt the plastic utensils. They went out of business sometime in late '85/early '86. I'm fairly certain on the time as I clearly remember the last time I was there. Halloween '85. My brother had took off without me to go trick or treating, so Mom took me there as consolation. Ladyhawke was the movie. Round Table ended up renting the space and is still there today.

When I lived in Mesa, Barro's was probably my favorite. Around here, I've not found anyplace that really stands out unfortunately.

I don't know about that list. Seems like Italy is way over represented.

I was talking about a chain, but Santarpio's is one of a kind. Only time I ever got out that way was to get a transponder for EZPass before a trip to Niagara Falls.

Huh. Apparently, there's this place called 'Italy' that is all the rage when it comes to pizza.  Never heard of it.
 
2022-09-10 8:07:10 AM  
I'm going to go with the rule that place that is famous for a cuisine is rarely the best example of it.

Philly doesn't have the best cheesesteaks, Buffalo doesn't have the best wings, etc.  or if they do, it is hard to find among all the crappy versions marketing off location rather than quality.

Also isn't best pizza awfully subjective?
 
2022-09-10 8:16:48 AM  
I'm not reading that likely shallow, misinformed, and last-minute article.

There are one-system questions, multi-system questions, and questions of preference.

Questions of preference get us nowhere. Some of us prefer the pepperoni above the cheese, some below. It does not matter. The article necessarily is predicated on preferences.

As long as it doesn't actually suck, the best pizza is the one in front of you at the moment.

Are you new to the Food tab? Pizza superiority is objective fact.

If you did that would some guys throw you in a panel van and chuck you out in Kenosha? I feel like that's what happens when you fark up too much in Chicago.

I've never been to any on the list, but the list is probably just fine. The problem is pizza is fairly simple. There's only so much you can do with it. There's probably not much variance between the places on this list and a really good place in any major city.

Quemapueblo: Only one pizza parlor from Argentina?


Argentine pizza while generally very good doesn't really fit.  This isn't the "best pizzerias in the world" it is closer to the "best pizzerias in the world that make pizza in specific Italian ways" and to be fair it is a fine style of pizza, but most Argentine places are not like that, they are more of a mixed style, Italian influenced certainly but they take ideas from other places, for instance pineapple on pizza is pretty common there.

Waste of time. It's that stupid goddamned "50 Top Pizza" ad site in Italy. They've been pitching this thing since 2017, and it's all paid for by Italian brands of olive oil, prosecco, beer, pasta, wheat, etc. etc.

The entire site is an ad, and the list is the clickbait pushed to get you to see the ad.

For nostalgias sake I'll always remember shakey's, good pizza and a pitcher of brew didn't cost a lot and was two blocks from the fraternity house. They even had laurel and hardy black and white silent shorts on the movie screen. The other one was a place called red hill pizza that had a two footer pizza that easily fed 4-6 very hungry brothers. It was on the spendy side but get the 4-6 brothers to pony up and it wasn't that expensive. It's when ten more moochers show up and it's gone when you came downstairs for a second slice that it got irritating...

I still think that a Sbarros would do very well next to a retro arcade (or other homage to things found in an 80s mall).  No idea how else they stay in business.

/remember them being good in the 1980s
//might have been a hungry teenager and wanted the most calories (i.e. HFCS in the dough would sell me)
///and a combination of local pizza sucking.  RIP Padonia Valley Subs (unchanged <1970-2010ish).

I guess Lily Tomlin likes pizza.
