Daniel Young's top 20 best pizza places in the world
Our Where To Eat Pizza author has just revealed the top 20 pizza places on planet earth - is your local on the list?
If you've already bought our Where To Eat Pizza book you're probably already very clued up on the best pizza places on planet earth. If you were in New York for Frieze last week, maybe you used our guide to Where To Eat Pizza in the New York art districts. If you did, we're sure you have a smile on your face reading this.
Where To Eat Pizza by Daniel Young is the experts’ guide to the best pizza places in the world and gives you insider knowledge on not only where you should eat but which pizza you should eat. When putting the book together Daniel enlisted the help of 121 regional experts and 956 global pizza fans from 48 countries to hand-pick the 1,705 pizza places featured.
Significantly though, Daniel decided not to rank the pizzerias in the book, preferring instead to break up his tasty content on a geographic basis. However, because of the extensive research that went into putting the book together, and the many subsequent requests from fans of the book Daniel has decided to release a previously unpublished list of the 20 pizza places that received the most nominations from the guide’s 1,077 contributors. Maybe your favourite is in there. Cue imaginary drum roll, here they are in reverse order:

As Carmelita Gianci writes in Where To Eat Pizza Franco Pepe is the great artisan of Italian pizza. His hands give life to a fluffy, spongy and light dough.The texture is a real work of art and the ingredients are of the highest quality. It results in a perfect pizza that's tasty and easy to digest."
