The Best Pizzerias in the World
50 Kalò – Mergellina, Italy
In Naples, tradition is key when it comes to pizza. Most places strive to offer pies that are made using the same methods as their parents and grandparents.
Ciro Salvo, head chef at 50 Kalò, is one of the few pizzaioli in the area around Naples offering pizzas that are made with ancient techniques but feature modern ingredients. His dough is thought to be some of the best in the city, and it’s topped with interesting combinations of ingredients like zucchini pesto, squash blossoms, and smoked Provolone.
The last Italian pizza maker to have succumbed to the call of the UK sirens is Ciro Salvo, who together with his historic partner Alessandro Guglielmini is preparing to export the 50 Kalò format in London, originally located -> https://t.co/W0VwJFoX7C #pizza pic.twitter.com/wnf2DPAU1T

Pizzeria Bianco – Phoenix, AZ
From its location in Phoenix, Arizona, Pizzeria Bianco is serving up some of the best Neapolitan pizza in the world. Run by legendary chef Chris Bianco, a transplant from the Bronx who settled in Arizona, the pizzas that come out of this kitchen are on par with any found in Naples. His pizzas are creative while still adhering to the standards that make Neapolitan pizza great. He smokes his own cheese in house, and the dough that he’s perfected over his long career is better than it’s ever been.

Di Fara Pizza – Brooklyn, NY
Di Fara Pizza has a rich tradition that stems from one person — owner and founder Domenico DeMarco, who has been personally running the kitchen since he opened the restaurant in 1964. Di Fara’s is thought to be the best pizza in New York City, and wait times for tables regularly stretch past two hours.
DeMarco makes each pizza by hand. Doing everything from kneading the dough to the final scattering of fresh basil over each slice. Three of his seven children work alongside their father in the kitchen.
