There’s always been debate about which country pizza originated from, but one thing’s for sure: Pizza has become a staple of the American diet.
Using the tens of thousands of ratings added daily by diners on its review site, TripAdvisor has named the top-rated pizzerias in every state.
The list is based on the opinions of TripAdvisor diners. It takes into account the ratio and quality of pizzeria reviews compared to overall ratings, along with quality and quantity of reviews received in the past year (ending September 2018). Featured restaurants have a minimum of 4 out of 5 bubbles, 100 reviews and 10 locations or less as of September.
Certain U.S. cities are known for certain types of pizza styles. There’s the New York City thin crust slice, the Chicago deep dish, the Detroit square pan pizza, the New Haven crispy crust pizza, and the New Jersey tomato pie with toppings cooked underneath the tomatoes.
But there are pizzerias in all 50 states, and Washington, D.C., and each one puts its own spin on it.
The best pizzerias range from Outrigger Pizza Company in Kihei, Hawaii (“Mouthwatering goodness right there,” said one diner) to Mother Bear’s Pizza in Bloomington, Indiana (“The crust is not too thick, not too thin, its juuuust right”) to Tommy’s Pizza in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (“They do not skimp on the toppings or the flavor.”).
Of the 51 pizzerias, TripAdvisor also highlighted the pizzerias that are among the top 10 in the country overall), based on reviews. They are, in alphabetical order:
- Alaska, Anchorage: Moose’s Tooth Pub and Pizzeria
- Connecticut, New Haven: Modern Apizza
