It's been nearly eight months since the last national pizza heatmap, leaving plenty of time for pizzerias to generate buzz all across America. And boy have they ever. Here now is a list of the twenty-four hottest pizzerias across the Eater universe and beyond to have opened in the last twelve months. Included on this latest edition is a New York-style spinoff of Dallas' most famous pizzeria Cane Rosso (Zoli's NY Pizza Tavern), Philadelphia restaurateur Marc Vetri's latest contribution to the pizza scene (Pizzeria Vetri), and a surprise new location of a legendary Phoenix pizzeria (Pizzeria Bianco). Beyond that, there's the triumphant return of a Brooklyn favorite (Motorino Brooklyn), a New York-style joint that has taken New Orleans by storm (Pizza Delicious), and much, much more.
Many thanks to the Eater city editors for their nominations. And please remember, these are ordered geographically and not by any other ranking. Is your favorite new pizzeria missing? Feel free to leave a note in the comments. And now, to the map:
