Tony’s Pizza, San Francisco

Chef Tony Geminiani, a 12-time titlist of the of World Champion Pizza Contest

Usually, when we think Pizza we think more about New York and Chicago, but this time we wanted to break the tradition, and take you to California. Tony’s Pizza is known as one of the best pizzerias in San Francisco, but also in the world. The restaurant Chef and honor is probably the most amazing pizza chef: a 12-time titlist of the of World Champion pizza contest in Italy.  Chef Tony’s magic ingredients are straight from the capital of the Naples, Italy. The restaurant menu features all kind of fantastic dishes, but you must have the once in a life world-class pizza experiences at Tony’s Pizza. If you are more into Italian style try Capodimonte pizza with caputo tipo 1 multigrain, mozzarella di buffala blend, dried dorati tomatoes, basil, sea salt, olive oil. If you fancy something more Californian style, try the Honey Pie; honey, calabrese peppers, scallions, mozzarella, piave cheese, fried caramelized onions, serrano peppers. Don’t be surprised people queuing to get a masterpiece pizza, you can order it online and have it delivered by Uber Eats and Caviar. http://tonyspizzanapoletana.com/menu/

 

 

Ribalta, New York City, Atlanta

We wanted to start with New York, but it’s very difficult to avoid the Big Apple’s pizzerias. We asked for recommendations and many time Ribalta was in the top 3. First of all, there were a lot of Italians on vacation and local Italian-Americans, which is a good sign. For the Indian summer, Ribalta made a special pizza: the Nerano. This pizza was named after the small town on the Amalfi coast in Italy. The Nerano is made with smoked mozzarella, zucchini chips and mint,  yes, mint! If you are open to new flavors you should go to Ribalta New York or Atlanta. http://www.ribaltapizzarestaurant.com/NYC/

 

 

800 Degrees, Los Angeles

Another Californian pizzeria to try, 800 degrees, Los Angeles.  800 Degrees is one of the best pizzerias in Hollywood where you can spot some undercover celebrities eating cheese pizza just like everybody else. 800 Degrees is known for it’s Tartufo Pizza: Bianco with truffled pecorino, wild mushrooms, arugula and roasted garlic.

To make it even better, they make your pizza in front of your eyes and they are open until 2.00 AM and have a patio for a pizza al fresco. 800 degrees has other locations in Los Angles, Santa Monica, and even one at LAX Airport, therefore, you can take on board your favorite pizza. https://800degrees.com/ 

 

Bar El Corso , Seatle

Pies here are super delicious, lightly priced, and consistent. But Bar del Corso is so much more than just another pizza place. Though these pizzas can stand alone as a full-blown meal, they’re just as lovely as an appetizer before a deep-dive into a menu of inspired Italian fare. The Rapini is pretty popular, but regular customers love the good old Margarita too. Bar El Corso serves also other delicious dishes if you want to something else. If want to give a try to Bar Del Corso, keep in mind that they don’t take reservations, only walk-ins. During the rush hours, you may experience a wait but it is worth it.  www.bardelcorso.com/

 

 

Lou Maltani’s, Chicago

Lou Maltani’s is definitely the place to go if you crave a real Chicago style pizza.  Started by Lou Maltani himself, in 1940 this pizzeria is the oldest family-owned restaurant in Chicago. Now oldest son Marc Maltani and grandson, are running the family business and keeping the spirit, and high-quality standards set by the founder. If Lou Maltani’s is known for being a great place for dining, it is also famous for its deep dish pizza created and served since 1943. If you are lucky to be in Chicago on Valentine’s Day, they feature a heart-shaped deep-dish pizza available on site, to go by an even frozen to serve it for special occasions. https://www.loumalnatis.com/
