Each year, travel site TripAdvisor rounds up the best cities in the US that offer the best-tasting pizzas. TripAdvisor bases its ranking by reviewing millions of recommendations and reviews from travelers around the world. Each pizza restaurant is ranked according to: the number of positive reviews, the quality of the pizza, the ratio of pizza restaurant and the reviews compared to other restaurants for that specific city. And without further ado, we are listing down the top 10 cities in the US that made it to this year’s list of best pizzerias:
