2014 Top 10 Pizza Restaurants in the US

Fennel sausage pizza at Pizzeria Mozza, one of the Top 10 Pizza Restaurants in the US

Though Italian by heritage, pizza has taken on a life of its own in America. Every small town claims at least one local pizza joint, while major metropolitan areas enjoy a wealth of thin-crust, Chicago-style, Neapolitan or Sicilian pies. The possibilities for great pizza are endless, and that's just the way we like it.

Still, some slices are more prized than others. Perfectly charred edges, top-shelf ingredients and just enough fresh mozzarella to stretch off into cheesy strings when a piece is pulled away — this is the stuff of pizza dreams, and we know exactly where you should head to. Check out GAYOT's list of the Top 10 Pizza Restaurants in the U.S. for a peek at the nation's best pizzas, from coast to coast.
