Are you a pizza lover like me? Could you eat pizza for any meal, any day of the week? I most certainly could, so why not wonder which cities around the country have the best pizza? I prefer to think of it as expanding my pizza knowledge. In every city, I visit I  am almost bound to try their pizza, but now with this list, I want to specifically go where the best is. Fortunately, two North Carolina cities made the top 25 so I  guess I won’t have to travel very far.

Any Time Estimate gathered some information to determine some of the best pizza cities across the country. From Chicago deep dish to New York style to everything in between, the best of the best is on this list. With more than 78,000 pizzerias across the country, this was no easy task to determine the top spots. Taking the 50 largest metros in the U.S. they were able to determine the top states. Using information such as pizza variations, cost, residents, reviews, and more they were able to rank the states to find the best. See which two North Carolina cities made the list and where they fall! I even went ahead and found some hot pizza spots you should check out in each city. It’s pizza time! Check out the top 25 best pizza cities in the U.S. and a must-try pizzeria in that city!
