A Guide to Help You Scout Out the Best Pizza Near You


What is life’s greatest pleasure? You won’t get the same answer twice if you ask a group of people. Some would say it is a night spent with a loved one doing nothing but watching TV. Others would say it is going on an adventure like mountain climbing or skydiving. There are definitely those who would choose gambling above all else. A few would name some sensual delights as their favorite pleasure of all. But it is pizza that trumps all those choices, easily. It’s better than anything else you could think of, and it is always there for you when you need it.

The trick, though, is in finding the best pizza near you, which is easier said than done. Here’s how you can do that.

Explore different styles
Before you can even decide on which is the best pizza nearby, you need to try out the different styles. The oldest and most popular type is the Neapolitan pizza, which dates back all the way to the 18th century, and it was Naples that gave birth to this delicious offering. It usually features tomatoes, mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil, and other ingredients. Then you have the Chicago pizza that is well known for its thick crust, and its stuffing can be quite heavy and include meat, unlike the Neapolitan. There are a lot of other different kinds out there, and you have to try the available options so you could decide which style is your favorite.

The ingredients
A pizza is as good as its ingredients. The different crust style and toppings aside, you need to go a little deeper to learn about the ingredients, if you want to find the best pizza out there. The more delicious and carefully the ingredients are selected, the more delicious the pizza will be. This obviously starts with the dough, which is a deal breaker. Having good bread is the key to making a really delicious pie in general, and pizza is no exception. As a rule of thumb, it should mature for a couple of days on average for the best taste possible. Toppings and ingredients need to be fresh and of the highest quality, which you will have to try out for yourself in the different restaurants around you.

You need to be a bit methodical in your quest to finding the best pizza near you, because it is worth it! There is absolutely no point in going to a place that is an hour’s drive from your location, and it is always best that you find a local hotspot nearby that provides that delicious pizza you are looking for. So, create a list of the nearest restaurants to your place, and start going through them one by one until you find the best one yet.

When it comes to pizza, the quality of service is just as important as the taste –– ok, maybe not as equally important, but it still really counts. Make sure to also rate the restaurants by their quality of service, as in what sauces and side dishes they serve, because the right ones can really complement your meal and add to the overall experience. The professionalism and cleanliness of the place also count, as there’s nothing worse than having to eat a pizza with unclean forks and/or knives. This level of detail might seem like it’s a bit too much, but it does count in how much you’ll enjoy your meal.

All restaurant qualities aside, do they deliver? Pizza is best consumed at home in your pajamas and in front of your TV, and the best pizza restaurant needs to have that as an option. Moreover, what are the delivery options? Does the place have an online delivery service? That would be much better as you could just log into the website and make your order without having to waste time making a phone call, which are uncomfortable for a lot of people. Speaking of websites, it’s also helpful if the place has their own as it can make it easier for you to go through the menu and see what you want the order to be –– it definitely beats having to go to the place because you don’t have their menu lying around.

As you can see, while taste comes before anything, there are other factors that count when it comes to pizza. It’s not just a meal that you consume, but rather an experience that you indulge in, and you want everything to be perfect so you could fully enjoy that experience. With a little effort, you can definitely find the best pizza place near you.
