What do you think makes a great pizza?

The Daily Meal's website is all about "all things food and drink." They recently set out on a ginormous gastronomical road trip in search of the best pizza pies across the United States.

The Daily Meal called in 59 pizza experts to come up with the best pies from across the country in many different categories from Cheese to Sicilian, Margherita to Pepperoni along with many more varieties and Connecticut kicked ass! The top 5 states for pizzas are:

  1. New York (36 Pizzerias))
  2. California (10 Pizzerias)
  3. Connecticut (9 Pizzerias)
  4. New Jersey (7 Pizzerias)
  5. Illinois (6 Pizzerias)

It's no surprise that the #1 Pizzeria named in all the land was Frank Pepe's Pizzeria Napolitana for their White Clam Pie!
