This is a stupid question. Best pizza, pffffft. Really, how could there ever be a correct answer? Ask someone like me from the Northeast, and you’ll get Neapolitan, New York or New Haven style as an answer. Ask a guy from the Midwest, maybe you’ll hear Detroit, Chicago thin or Deep dish. Btw, Chicago deep dish is a casserole to a New Englander! What about folks from the pacific mid west or California? No rules there…anything goes: caviar, lobster, seaweed…use your imagination. Let’s leave out the fans of Hunts Brothers conveyor belt gas station pizza….that’s just wrong and you have forfeited the right to an opinion if you eat that tripe. Unless you are locked inside a gas station by a sudden arctic deep freeze or you’re trying to win a bet, there’s no good reason to eat that stuff.
Truth is, the best is just perspective.
That’s right. My best isn’t your best. Who cares. As long as you’re enjoying it, it can be the best..even *shutter* Hunts Brothers. Heck, pass me a slice of that deep dish casserole, err, pizza…I’ll give it a whirl. But it’s not better than a good Neapolitan!
I love the natural look to these pizzas. I want to learn how to make some of these kinds of pizzas. I think it would be nice to get something that is good tasting.

I appreciate the information on really finding out what the bet pizza is. I agree that this can be a very hard question to answer since everyone has a different interpretation of the best pizza. I would imagine that some people like thin crust better than thick crust and other people like different styles according to what they have known the most in their lives.

This is definitely a question that’s open to interpretation.
I have been cooking wood fired pizza from past 2 years and I am in love with the taste of smoky crust. A pizza with extra cheese is always on top and when I place my pizza in ilFornino wood fired pizza oven , I can’t resist to eat that.
This what I believe “the best pizza is all about!!!”

Honestly, I went in this article thinking I could get a definite answer or a survey result. I’m surprised for that sudden twist that all pizza can be the best pizza depending on one’s perspective. In which, I do entirely agree just like how beauty can only be measured in the eye of the beholder. Additionally, learning something like Chicago deep dish is called a casserole to a New Englander is pretty awesome. In any case, all this pizza talk got me craving for pizza. Thanks for the interestingly entertaining article on what’s the best pizza! I’ll go out later and look for the best one for me.

There’s really no value in surveys except for general ideas!
