(NEXSTAR) – It might come as a surprise, but Food & Wine thinks Ohio’s pizza is pretty good. Ninth out of fifty states good to be exact.
The editors at Food & Wine recently published their own list of the best “pizza states” in America, and New York — while still earning a favorable review — didn’t finish in first place.
New Jersey is currently the best “pizza state” in the country, according to the Food & Wine editor, who made special note of Jersey City’s Razza and Bread & Salt restaurants, for their “glorious showcase” of pizza.
“Pizza-wise, this is as balkanized a state as you will find, each city and region very much into their own style. The other great thing about Ohio is that most of these styles remain a complete mystery to the outside world, ” said David Lansel, senior editor at Food & Wine.
Food & Wine’s best “pizza states” in America are:
- New Jersey
- New York
The rest of the county, however, wasn’t completely left out of the fun. As somewhat of a consolation prize, Food & Wine included its editors’ assessment of the best pizza options in every other state, for folks who don’t mind eating 11th-rate (or lower) pizza.
