Okay, look, I’m from NJ so when Food & Wine put out their combined list of the “Best Pizza” and “Best Pizza In Each State,” I wasn’t surprised that New Jersey came in and took the #1 spot from New York. (Connecticut was 2nd, New York was 3rd). I grew up in Cinnaminson, NJ near a spot called Divincenzo’s (Divi’s for short, for people in the know). The owner, Sal, moved there from Italy and used to let us fold pizza boxes in exchange for a slice or two, or a burger. I LOVED their pizza, and still do. All these years later, it’s still just as good. There’ve been a few other places that stick out: Pittsfield, MA had a spot called Baba Louie’s that had really good gourmet, brick oven pizza.
But if we’re being honest…and maybe I’m a little embarrassed to say this, now I just order Domino’s. I like thin crust because I can eat more and I don’t feel guilty. There is always one no matter where I move. And they deliver. The one by me now brings the pizza piping hot! But is it AS GOOD AS mom & pop shop pizza? Nah.
So anyway, Food & Wine ranked the best pizza states, and then also did the best pizza in each state. And who won South Carolina?! Melfi’s in Charleston!

So, do you agree? And who would your “Best Pizza in the Midlands” award go to?
