Be warned: it's a land of rather creative pizza toppings. Half-taco, half sauerkraut pie, anyone?

As a long-time Top Chef fan, I've seen so many dishes presented by the cheftestants that they tend to blend together.

Blais didn't go on to win the title, but his pie demonstrated Georgia's potential as a destination for great pizza.
