The Best Pizza in Pittsburgh

You might have a hard time nailing down the best pizza in Pittsburgh. After all, the Steel City has the second highest pizzeria density in all of America. Although New York City and Chicago get all the media attention when it comes to popular pies, the Yinzer (Pittsburgh residents) can hold their own when it comes to pizza. The city concocts unique fusion cuisine - ranging from chipped chopped ham to their take on kielbasa and pierogies. The giant crusts and loads of cheese on their pizzas bring patrons from all over. But where are the best flavor connoisseurs in town sitting down for a slice? Welcome to our Tastemaker Lists. We've gathered data from thousands of eateries across the country to find where OpenTable's most expert and seasoned diners go for a slice. Look at this list of the best pizza in Pittsburgh, and book a spot for a slice to remember!
