A handy guide for any adventurous pizza aficionado, Eater has compiled a list of 38 Essential Pizzas Across the Country. Well-represented are the expected cities replete with pizza tradition, from New York (Totonno's, Joe's Pizza, Di Fara, Motorino, Franny's, Paulie Gee's) and Chicago (Coalfire Pizza, Pizano's Pizza & Pasta, Spacca Napoli) to New Haven (Modern Apizza, Sally's). But the list spreads the love across the country fairly well, and no one style of pie is over-represented. Other noteworthy purveyors of pie making on appearance on the list are Antico Pizza Napoletana (Atlanta), Buddy's Pizza (Detroit), Pizzeria Bianco (Phoenix) and the Batali-Silverton-Bastianich operation Pizzeria Mozza (LA). Peruse the complete list here.
