Best Pizzerias in America - the Proper Sort, That Is

" 'Travel and Leisure' Picks the Top Pizza in the U.S."
Slice Pizza Blog, Serious Eats (December 22, 2009)

"In no particular order, Travel and Leisure's top picks for pizza in the U.S. are:..."

Aside from Stowe, Vermont, and Chicago, Illinois, all 11 are in largish cities on the east or west coast. Living north of the flyover states, I wonder if Travel and Leisure had objective criteria which excluded a thousand-mile-wide swath of America - or if they simply didn't realize that we eat pizza out here?

The Slice Pizza Blog links to the Travel and Leisure article: "America's Best Pizza" (December 2009). The geographical myopia I've noted notwithstanding, it should be a pretty good read.

I did a little checking, and sure enough: central Minnesota isn't the only place in the American Midwest where pizza's sold: A glance at that page gives a pretty good idea why Travel and Leisure hopped over the Midwest:

"The Midwestern United States is the home of the Pizza Franchise: Pizza Hut started in Kansas, Domino's in Michigan -- the whole idea of standardized American pizza comes from the heartland. You'll be able to read about chains and franchises in an upcoming section of the site...."

Pizza Hut?


Gracious me! That's so commercial and declassé. You'll even find people like me in a Pizza Hut!

Seriously, though? That Slice Pizza Blog post is a pretty good snapshot of the 'better' pizzerias in America - and the blog itself should be interesting for pizza lovers.
