For the third year in a row, the Lower East Side's Una Pizza Napoletana, a culinary gem by Anthony Mangieri, was named best pizzeria in the U.S. by 50 Top Pizza, an online guide focusing on the best Italian pizzerie across the world.

The announcement was made at event space West Edge in Chelsea Market yesterday, during a ceremony that also spotlighted the 16 other local restaurants that made the guide. According to the ranking, New York City reigns supreme as the pizza capital of America, boasting the highest number of entries on the list. New York State was also the most represented state, with 19 pizzerie included.

Before we get into the ranking, it's worth diving into the methodology behind the survey. According to an official press release, 50 Top Pizza dispatches anonymous inspectors all over the country to assesses each potential entry "in accordance with our guide policy." Evaluation criteria includes the quality of the pizza (duh) but also the attention given to the customer's level of satisfaction, among other factors. 

In addition to the annual pizzeria list that 50 Top Pizza releases annually, the company also debuted a new ranking this year, which looks at the top pizza slices in the U.S.

L'Industrie Pizza, which boasts locations in the West Village and Brooklyn, topped that specific list—although it's unclear which one of the shop's many delicious slices is being honored. Mano's Pizzeria in Queens and L&B Spumoni Gardens also appear on the ranking.

Below, find both lists:
