It is, apparently, Pizza Week, and Zagat is celebrating by directing us to the best.  '50 States, 50 Pizzas' is the title of Zagat's online guide to the best pizzas in the US.

Well. they certainly hit the spot in New York with Di Fara's, but an awful lot of the choices look as if the prize was for most unusual accumulation of ingredients, rather than best pizza.


Surely there is an outer limit, where you say "this is not a pizza, it's a take-off on a pizza?" Sort of like when you make a birthday cake and ice it to look like a burger on a bun... 

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

But I agree.  Too many pizza places try to go for outlandish toppings rather than making the BEST pizza possible.    Generally I like little mom and pop joints best.
