- California: The Cheeseboard Collective in Berkeley. “One flavor a day, always fresh, always vegetarian. Lines down the block, especially when it’s a corn day. Always get the green sauce to dip your pizza in. Always.”

- Honorable Mention - Modern Apizza in New Haven.
- Florida: Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza at multiple locations. “It’s a chain that got its start here, but other states up north just love taking credit for our one franchise. Nope. A Florida classic, sorry guys.”
- Georgia: Antico Pizza Napoletana in Atlanta. “It’s some of the best pizza you’ll ever have.”
- Illinois: Lou Malnati's in Chicago. “Their deep dish is to die for. There's no place that makes better pizza.”
- New Jersey: Papa's Tomato Pies in Robbinsville. “It's the the 'longest continuously owned and operated pizza restaurant in the U.S.' Amazing pizza and a killer Mustard Pie. Don't ask, just embrace the delicious weirdness.”
- New York:Artichoke Basille's Pizza in New York City. “If you ask any NYC'ers if they’ve heard of Artichoke, they’ll all say yes, and for good reason!”
- Honorable Mentions - Dani's House of Pizza in Queens and Little Vincent's in Huntington.

- Honorable Mention - Star Pizza in Houston.
