Pizza is about as varied and beloved a genre, as opinionated a subject, and also as accessible a food as there is, which makes determining the country’s best pizzas a truly challenging task. Yes, pizza is tough to rank responsibly. But once again, that’s just what The Daily Meal set out to do.
Check out their list HERE and see if you favorite made the cut.
One of my all-time favorites made the list…Apizza Scholls. This Portland, Oregon institution has some of the best pizza in the Pacific Northwest — and that’s using an electric oven! But they do have some guidelines for patrons interested in composing their own topping combinations on their 18-inch pies: only three ingredients, and no more than two meats per pie. So choose wisely from a list of toppings that in addition to classics like anchovies, red onions, garlic, pepperoni, sausage and basil includes capicollo, house-cured Canadian bacon, cotto salami, arugula, jalapeño and pepperoncini. If you aren’t up to building your own pie, there are 10 classics to choose from, including the signature Apizza Amore ($25): margherita with capicollo (cured pork shoulder). The signature Amore features a spicy kick offset a bit by the somewhat sweet mozzarella and balanced sauce. That’s amore!
