Hmmmm … puts out a top 10 list of “best” pizza in the U.S.

Burt was "Robbed" by not being on the list....

I get a lot of “press releases” being the food guy that I am…most of them are crap, but this one caught my eye…not because it was about Pizza, a subject so close to my heart but by what it contained….its a “top 10” list from the folks at worst pizza, which is an interesting name if you want to talk about the “best” pizza…so maybe I will start “food that tastes like shit”. com so my foodie friends and I can discuss the latest and greatest foodie finds around the country…

Anyway, I do give this a bit of credit cause its not the usual places in NYC or Chicago….there are places like Boca Raton Florida…I mean, shit when I think of Boca Raton Florida I think Pizza…and retired Jewish people….making really really good Pizza…so here it is, I am sure Burt from Burts in Chicago is emotionally traumatized by not being on the list….his Pizza is fantastic, a bunch of Chicago foodies took me there a few years ago….its “off the hook” as a certain over hyped douch-bag would say…

I know I am being a smart ass with this blog…but I do this this list credibility as the dude appears to have a real passion for Pizza….but that means someone else will come in, steal his idea and become rich and famous…and he will just get fat and high cholesterol.

  1. Pretty funny stuff. Burts is very good and if I had a top 20 they would be on it. When my best of Chicago comes out, you will be happy to find them there!!


  2. Vito’s Pizza at 43rd Avenue and Northern in Phoenix – the owners were from Chicago, had a restaurant across the street from Riverview Park in its heyday, recently sold the business and retired – excellent!

  3. Dude, you ate Burt’s pizza? Of course you did, but I’m still very jealous.

    Burt was featured on Bourdain’s “Chicago” episode of No Reservations and his entire attitude on how and why he makes pizza is so infectious, it makes me wonder why more people don’t adopt it. It helps that he’s in the town that practically reinvented pizza, but still.

    I don’t even know how you can compile a “Top 10 Pizza” list. I have a hard time criticizing most pizzas. That’s like compiling a “Top 10 Orgasms” list. They were all pretty fucking good this year. I have a hard time picking a list of favorites.

    Show me a bad pizza, and I’ll show you someone who really had to try hard to fuck it up.
