In what is perhaps the most universal statement of all time, PIZZA IS ONE OF THE GREATEST FOODS IN THE WORLD.
1. Crico's Pizza & Subs, Gulf Shores, Alabama
"The pepperoni cheese sticks are amazing. Favorite pizza place here in Gulf shores, coming from a local." —Yelper Josh G.
"The Supreme Pizza is what we ordered, and it was soooo GOOOOD! If you're in town visiting and don't want to leave your condo or hotel, they'll deliver right to your door." —Yelper Kelly M.
2. Johnny Chicago's, Anchorage, Alaska
3. Casanova Brothers Pizza, Gilbert, Arizona
"We had garlic knots first and they were amazing — great little bites full of flavor. We also had the deep-dish pizza, half white, half red, and it was fantastic. I love it both ways. The cheese garlic bread and zeppoles are also as delicious as everything else." —Yelper Toryanni E.
4. Vino's, Little Rock, Arkansas
"We walked from our hotel to this hipster place that brews their own beer. It made me feel like I was in Austin. Their Muffuletta pizza was a nice change from our typical choice." —Yelper Melissa B.
"Their margherita slice is simply fantastic. It's so simple, and so flavorful. Their crust is THIN, too. I love it." —Yelper Jeff H.
5. Terra Mia Pizzeria, Laguna Hills, California
"Our go to for New York-style pizza in Southern Orange Country. It's in the corner of a large plaza. It's understated, but the pizza is always a hit. Can't go wrong with Meat Lovers, and if you wanna try something different with a little feta, their house pizza is also good." —Yelper Gee G.
"The spinach white pie is far and away the standout. Delicious!" —Yelper Sara W.
6. Coloradough Pizza, Aurora, Colorado
7. The Little Rendezvous, Meriden, Connecticut
8. Wiseguy NY Pizza, Washington, DC
"Wiseguy's pizza is amazing. It's a great late-night snack and the perfect way to end a night out. I particularly like the Sicilian White slice, which is a thicker slice with cheese and garlic, but you really cannot go wrong. The side salads come with a garlic knot and are a good choice for a lighter (but still satisfying) option." —Yelper Mackenzie S.
"This pizza is amazing. I loved my chicken and ranch pizza, as well as the truffle one." —Yelper Paola G.
9. Amalfi Pizza, Newark, Delaware
"This pizza is the best in the area. I recommend getting a fresh pie if you are going to order more than a few slices. My favorite is their White Pizza, but their BBQ Chicen and then Chicken Alfredo come in second and third." —Yelper KB
"Pizza is hand tossed and is baked directly on the brick inside the oven — not some conveyor belt oven. " —Yelper Oscar D.
10. Dolce Salato Pizza & Gelato, Wilton Manors, Florida
11. Luigi's A Slice of Italy, Buford, Georgia
12. Kaneohe's Boston Pizza, Kaneohe, Hawaii
13. Guido's Original New York Style Pizzeria, Boise, Idaho
14. Olive Theory Pizzeria, Downers Grove, Illinois
"You can create your own, and they let you have unlimited veggies — yay! I personally went with the Buddha's Karma. It includes fire-roasted olive oil, mozzarella cheese, spinach, mushrooms, and Parmesan. Five out of five." —Yelper Jennifer P.
15. Panoony's Pizza and Wings, Brownsburg, Indiana
"My friends and I have ordered Panoony's a couple times — so delicious! I've had the Bacon Chicken Ranch and Hawaiian pizzas. Both are very good. The slices are gigantic. Out of all the pizza places in Indy, this is one of the best that delivers." —Yelper Melissa K.
"BBQ Chicken pizza was amazing, and I'm a Chicagoan, so I know my pizza. Best pizza you can get in the area." —Yelper Courtney P.
16. Taste of New York Pizza, West Des Moines, Iowa
"If you are in the mood for traditional thin-crust pizza, this is the spot. Top that off with some cheesy garlic knots and an Italian Gino's ice. The place is small, but reminds me of how the pizza cafes are in NYC, in that you order by the slice." —Yelper Amanda I.
"The thin crust pepperoni pizza is delicious. It's everything I would expect from a New York-style pizza. The slices are huge and cheesy." —Yelper Dmitry N.
17. Geo's Pizzeria, Overland Park, Kansas
18. Old School NY Pizza, Louisville, Kentucky
"Who knew authentic New York-style pizza (says my native New Yorker lunch date; I'm taking her word for it) was located in a strip mall on the east end? Big ol' foldable, greasy, delicious slices of pizza, calzones with ricotta and mozzarella cheese oozing out, homemade noodles in their lasagna (just added to the menu), and big fresh salads, all squished unassumingly between the asian massage place and the nail salon. " —Yelper Jess A.
"First, the pizza: fresh, made to order, quality toppings, perfect amount of sauce and cheese, and the BEST crust you can imagine. It had the perfect amount of crunch but folded nicely. Second, the cookies: chocolate chip delights. Literally melt-in-your-mouth good." —Yelper Gladys B.
19. Pizza Artista, Lafayette, Louisiana
"These guys have personal pizza making down to a science. They offer a variety of crusts, sauces, vegetables, and cheeses (including vegan). I recommend the spicy marinara! It has a fun kick to it." —Yelper Lauren D.
"Absolutely delicious pizza at good prices for anytime of the day with or without the whole family. Fresh salads are also available. Nice atmosphere and quick enough to stop by on lunch break. " —Yelper Thasia B.
20. Kozeta's Restaurant, Westbrook, Maine
"We had a large Greek pizza which had spinach, feta, tomatoes, and more. I normally prefer a more thin crust, but this was well-baked, crispy, and light. " —Yelper Gordon A.
"Amazing Greek pizza. Everyone is super friendly, and it's family owned." —Yelper Terrilynn D.
21. M & N's Pizza, Bethesda, Maryland
22. Atonio's, Amherst, Massachusetts
23. 112 Pizzeria Bistro, Rochester Hills, Michigan
"The pizza was cooked perfectly, and the slices are huge! I love a pizza that you have to fold in half to eat. The crust was light and fluffy with a great crunch on the outside. And the cheese bread is more unique than your standard cheese bread. The bread is almost like a calzone; the bread is stuffed with cheese and topped with a delicious Parmesan garlic butter sauce." —Yelper Chris C.
24. Mama's Pizza, Saint Paul, Minnesota
"I always get the sampler platter and bring home a pizza as well. Their servings are huge! They have the tastiest Italian sausage I've ever had." —Yelper Sam P.

25. Brooklyn Pizza, Bay St. Louis, Mississippi
26. Corner Bistro, Saint Louis, Missouri
27. Pie Hole, Missoula, Montana
"Greasy, foldable awesomeness. We ordered a half cheese, half pepperoni (our litmus test for any pizza spot). It did not disappoint. The pie was YUGE, enough to feed me and my two dudes who can plow through food like a freight train." —Yelper Petra T.
"The pizza is amazing. Nice thin crust, nice sauce, nice cheese ratio. It's all good." — Yelper Kari L.
28. Orsi's Italian Bakery & Pizzeria, Omaha, Nebraska
"It's pretty much physically impossible to eat more than two slices of pizza. Not thin crust, not thick crust, just dense and delicious. Tangy sauce and plentiful toppings." —Yelper Sarah G.
"The sauce was just the right amount of sweet, the cheese was flavorful, and the crust was out of this world. Very highly recommend this pizza!" —Yelper Scot N.
29. The Pizza Kitchen, Las Vegas, Nevada
"I have been a customer since DAY ONE! I was there on the first day they opened the doors, and I have not ordered pizza at any other restaurant since. This place is amazing." —Yelper Benjamin R.

44. Hot Toppings Pizza, Houston, Texas
45. The Pizza Cart, Cedar City, Utah
"HAD to try the Gyro pizza. And it was so delicious." —Yelper Michelle W.
"I highly recommend the Chicken BBQ Ranch pizza. The NYC Garlic and Margherita are also super good. Next time I will be trying to Sausage and Mushroom. The pizza is done in a huge fire-oven type thing, which produces black char spots. I really like this, but if you don't, just beware." —Yelper Paris W.

"My wife and I were both very pleased with the pizza and the personalized service. We sat outside, and they had herb plants next to the tables. They said we could pick them to put on our pizza, so I put fresh rosemary on my pizza and it added even more flavor." —Yelper John T.
