The Problem With ‘The 101 Best Pizzas in America’

Your local pizza spot is enough, especially when it needs your support more than ever

I wish the methodology was: This ranking takes special care to highlight pizzerias from all parts of the country, within 25 miles of every U.S. citizen.

I’m not going to question why, for example, Connecticut has six of the 101 on this list, and none of those six are Bufalina in Guilford. But I will question why this recurring list was published in September 2020 with the words “here is where to find” (second paragraph as well as subheadline) and not “love your local right now.”

Please do eat pizza — from your local. If you’re not comfortable eating food made by someone else, buy beverages. Spend money so there is a list next year.
