Yelp Names “Top 100 Places to Eat Pizza” in the U.S.

(NEXSTAR) – We all think our favorite pizzeria is the best. But, apparently, most of us are wrong.

In honor of National Pizza Day, Yelp released a list of the nation’s “100 Best Places for Pizza” to highlight some of the best restaurants and slice shops from coast to coast. Pizza places in dozens of states have made the cut, which means there’s something for almost everyone to enjoy — and plenty for the rest of us to discuss.

Topping the list this year is Cheese Board Pizza, an offshoot of a popular bakery/cheese shop in Berkeley, CA. The pizzeria, which specializes in vegetarian-only sourdough crust pizzas, currently boasts a four-and-a-half-star rating on Yelp based on more than 5,500 reviews. (Not bad for a pizzeria that’s only open nine hours a week.)

NYC’s Prince Street Pizza took second place for its pepperoni-covered square slices, followed by Smiling With Hope Pizza in Reno, an East Coast-style pizzeria that trains and employs employees with developmental disabilities.

The top 25 pizza places on Yelp’s list are included below. The full 100 ranking, based on Yelp community ratings and reviews, can be found on the Yelp blog.
