Happy Pizza Week, here are the 21 hottest pizza restaurants in the country. Please note these are not necessarily pizzerias, but rather restaurants that serve pizza and have opened in the past year or so. By and large, these restaurants were recommended by local Eater editors, in addition to Eater National's Heatmap correspondents.
So what's hot in pizza? Almost every single pizzeria listed below serves wood-fired pizzas, much of it cooked up in massive, imported Italian ovens. Lots of places serve cocktails with their pies (Indaco in Charleston, Coltivare in Houston), and several run a side hustle in charcuterie (Pig Ate My Pizza outside Minneapolis, Ottava Via in Detroit). There are even a few pizzerias that grow produce for toppings onsite (Humble Pie in Seattle, Oak Oven outside of New Orleans).
And now, without further ado, the Eater Pizza Heatmap. Entries are listed in alphabetical order. Feel free to air your righteous grievances in the comments below.Read More
