Everyone knows that New Yorkers do pizza better than everyone else (we certainly kick Chicago's ass).

Patsy’s, Totonno’s and other pizza greats still carry on the tradition for classic versions at Italian restaurants. But new-wave upstarts are bringing fresh ideas, such as quirky toppings and deep-fried pies, to the dough-rolling ranks every year. Find the best pizza in NYC with our ultimate guide.
