Food & Wine takes the temperature of the giant, spinning pizza oven that is Planet Earth and declares this bunch the "best new pizza places" across the world. Some of them are so new, they're not even open yet—Franny's in New York and Pastaria in St. Louis—so it's lucky that Food & Wine found a time traveler with a food criticism background to join the staff.

On home soil, joints are broken up by geography: the West bracket features Del Popolo in San Francisco; in the South there's The Backspace in Austin, TX; in the Midwest they like Mani Osteria in Ann Arbor, MI and New York City gets its own category, featuring eight spots including three-ovened Ribalta.

Worldwide? Savoy in Tokyo and Franco Manca in London make the list, and there's also a "new pizza classics" list including Motorino in NYC and Great Lake in Chicago.
