Top 20 Pizzas

Welcome back to the PizzaQuest Chronicles.

Last week I listed our Top 10 Pizzas.

This week, we’ve got pizzas ranked 11 through 20.

The truth of the matter is this: When the Dear Man and I made a first pass through our pizza spreadsheet to pull out the pizzas that might be in contention for our Top 10, we listed 18 pizzas. So these are all serious winners.

 

Let’s have a look at them… again, in alphabetical order, because otherwise it’s just too hard.
