[UPDATED: AUGUST 15, 2017]

If there was an award for the world's most loved food, it would be a safe bet to say that pizza would most likely take the prize.

There's just something about the combination of crispy dough, melted cheese, meat and greens served in a round package that makes it so easy to love and enjoy. Thank you Italy.

The next time you have an urge for a slice...or two...or three (we aren't judging), don't reach for the speed dial and instead take a trip to one of these 5 pizza joints.
