USA Today Suggests Best Pizza Places In Each State

You might remember when Alan Richman from GQ came out with a list of the country’s best pizza places (GQ Lists Top 25 Pizza Places In America). Well earlier this month, USA Today took a different approach. They published a list of one great pizza parlor in each state, as reccomended by a local expert.

While I believe that a list of the country’s best pizza places is quite subjective (as is any pizza review, really)… I’m not sure how helpful the USA Today article is. There’s no inclusion of Pizzeria Bianco (Arizona suggestion: Velvet Elvis in Patagonia) or Di Fara (New York suggestion: Za’ Za’ in Scarsdale)… so if you take the list for what it is (a pizza place in each state that someone happens to like) then that’s fine. But I wouldn’t go out of your way to try any of these places.

I’ve only tried a few places on list and one of those is Spike Mendelsohn’s We, The Pizza in Washington, DC. The pizza is great. But it’s not a destination pizza place. It’s hard to separate the We, The Pizzas from the Frank Pepes on the list. And thus, the list should not be considered a guide to must-visit pizza parlors across the country. But if you happen to be passing by one of the places… give it a try!

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
