Cheesy, Saucy and Downright Delicious Pizza on Top 5 Restaurants — Vote for Your Favorite
In last night's episode of Top 5 Restaurants, hosts Sunny Anderson and Geoffrey Zakarian revealed the eateries around the country that are slicing up the best pizza. Food Network has you covered when it comes to pizza, from deep dish and meat lover’s to seafood topped and cheesy, caramelized crusts. Take a look below to find out why these pies are a slice above the rest.
The quest began at Via 313, where two brothers are serving The Detroiter behind one of Austin’s lively beer gardens. This rectangular pizza pays homage to their hometown, featuring a deep buttery crust and two types of pepperoni and cheese. Frank Pepe’s in New Haven, Conn., ranked fourth on the countdown for none other than their White Clam Pie, topped with freshly shucked clams and baked until crisp perfection. Next stop: Una Pizza Napoletana in San Francisco. There, owner Anthony Mangieri imports all of the ingredients for his Margherita Pizza – like buffalo mozzarella and DOP San Marzano tomatoes — right from Italy. Food Network traveled to Chicago for another deep-dish favorite at Pequod’s Pizza. While their Italian Sausage Pan Pizza features a special blend of pork, customers go for the irresistibly caramelized and cheesy crust. At the end of a pizza-packed show, it’s no surprise that the winning slice came from New York. At Totonno's Pizzeria Napolitano in Brooklyn, they've been making the Mushroom and Pepperoni Pie the same way since 1924. Totonno’s tangy tomato sauce and thin, New York-style crust might be an undisclosed recipe, but it’s no secret that this pie takes home the No. 1 prize.
