Whether you like the thin style of a New York pie or prefer the chunkier Detroit-style option, you probably have pretty strong opinions about what makes the perfect piece — and where to find it.
The Italian pizza experts behind 50 Top Pizza have released their 2022 survey, which ranks the best pizzerias in the world.
Inspectors from 50 Top Pizza are invited to inspect a pizzeria based on the following criteria:
- Customer service
- Cleanliness and beauty of the surroundings
- Taste and overall health of the food
