50 States, 50 Pizzas

Before you click through these pizzas, let’s be clear: In regard to pizza, we, the editors and writers of this story, do not discriminate. When we set out six months ago to find the greatest pizzas in America, we did not insist on thin crust over thick or red sauce over white. We didn’t even care if the pizzas were round. We just needed them to be awesome.

Inevitably, some of you will be alarmed by our choices, shocked that so-and-so was snubbed because their crust has the perfect crunch or their cheese oozes just so. But passionate disagreements about pizza reveal one great truth: There is no single best way to make it. In the bellow gallery, you will see by-the-book classics right next to brash pies that break every rule.

But all of them have one important thing in common: They’re well worth the trip.
