It’s not a secret. We’re in love with pizza. If you follow us on social media, then you know we recently embarked on our inaugural “I Wish You Were Pizza” tour — inspired by CurEater Mattie Beason and Felicia Trujillo. While you may think we’re “pizza’d” out, we’re absolutely not. In fact, some of us eat pizza more than twice a week, which means we’ll definitely be eating a slice (actually slices) for National Pizza Day. If you want to follow suit, we found 6 lists to give you some inspiration.
CurEater Mattie Beason influenced the name of our pizza tour with his t-shirt and the name of his pizza list. To say Mattie really loves pizza is an understatement. If you are feeling really adventurous and you live in the Triangle, you can take your own pizza tour this week (maybe Valentine’s Day) with Mattie’s “I Wish You Were Pizza” list. And if you’re in Baltimore, you can check out Hersh’s Pizza.
CurEater Vivian Howard recently opened Benny’s Big Time Pizzeria in Wilmington, NC. (We’re already planning a road trip to the Big Time.) We were overjoyed when she created a list of pizzerias that inspired her. Vivian’s taste doesn’t lie, so we know that each place on her list definitely hits the pizza mark. From NYC to Phoenix, you’ll 100% find a spot to fall in love with pizza all over again.
CurEater Robert Alexander is the Master Baker at H&F Bread Co. in Atlanta, so we know his pizza list is top notch. For all you Atlanta natives and those traveling to ATL, you now have 4 solid pizzerias to choose from to celebrate the National Pizza Day today and everyday.
Bob Peters is a cocktail artisan and the Creative Director of Bar Operations of The Punch Room at The Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, NC. When Bob Peters creates a cocktail, we know we are about to sip something that will change our lives. Literally. He knows how to make a solid cocktail. Seeing that we trust him to blow our minds with a creative cocktail, we trust he knows good pizza. He did create a list for his favorite pizzerias in Charlotte, after all.
Pizzeria Faulisi in Cary, NC was the first stop on our “I Wish You Were Pizza” tour. We hearted everything about it, especially the interior. When it comes to finding the best pizza in the U.S., you can 100% count on Amber Faulisi to know the right spots. She has places listed from New York, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Oregon. Thank you, Amber, for making all our pizza dreams come true on National Pizza Day.
CurEater Kevin Getzewich, Executive Chef at One Broad Street, gives you two pizzeria options in Charleston. Sometimes it’s better to have just a few options that you know for a fact will be amazing. We’ve wanted to try Luke’s Craft Pizza for a while now, and we plan on doing so when we are in Charleston for the Charleston Wine and Food Festival. We’re coming for ya, Luke!
