Is this REALLY America’s Best Pizza?
We all play favorites when it comes to pizza — some like cheesy thin-crust, others deep-dish piled high with a smorgasbord of toppings. Lucky for us, The Daily Meal took 101 bites for the team, taste-testing slices across the country and polling chefs, food critics and pizza enthusiasts to find the most mouthwatering pie. Rough job.
Where can this sacred slice be found? Hint: It’s not the battleground cities of New York or Chicago. According to CNBC, the crowd favorite is none other than Frank Pepe’s in New Haven, Connecticut. We’re talking slabs of dough covered in parmesan cheese, clams, garlic, olive oil and oregano.
For our money, we can’t get enough of the Beastmaster pizza (mozzarella, tomatoes, pork sausage, gorgonzola, onion, caper and jalapeño) at Roberta’s in Brooklyn. But, hey, we don’t discriminate.
