Eater's Pizzeria Heatmap


'Tis the season for national pizzeria round-ups. Today's listing? The 21 "hottest" pizza joints in the country, courtesy of Eater. Unlike the Travel and Leisure rankings, this collection is focused on who's making a splash in the pizza pool—it doesn't purport to be a definitive national ranking. In that spirit, they're also only ordered geographically (which apparently means winding a cosine curve across the US, from west to east). Here are Eater's top picks, with links to any coverage we've provided on our end.
