Whether you like the thin New York pie or prefer the Detroit-style option, you’re bound to be pretty strict about what makes the perfect piece of pie – and where to find it.
Italian pizza experts behind Top 50 Pizzas released their 2022 survey to rank the best pizzerias in the world.
Inspectors from 50 Top Pizza were invited to review a pizzeria based on:
- Customer service
- Cleanliness and beauty of the environment
- Taste and overall health of food
The best city for pizza in 2022 is a combination of New York City and Rome, Italy.
Each city has 5 of the best pizzerias in the world, more than any other city on the Top 50 Pizza list.
In New York, the top pizzeria is Una Pizza Napoletana. The Lower East Side eatery is famous for its 12-inch wood-burning Neapolitan pies by self-taught chef Anthony Mangieri.
According to the survey, the top pizzerias in Rome are Seu Pizza Illuminati. The restaurant’s chef, Pier Daniele Seu, is best known for creating ultra-light dough and using experimental coatings.
