If you’re the kind of person that eats pizza the point where you might question whether or not you bleed marinara, then this is the list for you. Pizza expands its borders by making us think of our favorite pie in new ways. Have you ever tried a pastrami pizza? Or seen a pizza piled high with so much green that at first you thought it was a salad? We’re confident that you are just as obsessed with egg everything as we are, which is why it’s become almost mandatory to see some runny yolks on pie. We know you love to talk pizza, so much so, that you start to sound a little cheesy when you talk about how much you love it. Pop into one of these pizza spots and talk pie with like minded people who are on your level.
Think of your crust as a canvas to your next masterpiece. Don’t resist the urge to be daring and get creative. Step one; choose your crust. Step two; select your sauce. Step three; choose your cheeses and meats. Step four; top it off with a selection of fresh ingredients. Step five; add an after bake sauce to your artfully hand-crafted creation.

If you can’t afford a ticket to Italy, this may very well be your next best thing. The first thing you notice when you dine here is the insatiable smell of the amazing food you are about to eat. Second, the all Italian wine list. Third, that you need to make a mental note to save room for dessert and hope that after one bite of pizza you don’t throw restraint right out the window. Hands down, the Prosciutto di Parma with rucola, Bianco DiNapoli tomato and mozzarella di bufala is an absolute must.
