Buffalo Pizzeria Makes 101 Best Pizzas in America List
What's really surprising is that there's only one Buffalo-area pizzeria on this list.
The Daily Meal has put out a list of the "101 Best Pizzas in America," and Jay's Artisan Pizzeria makes it at number 93 on the list for 2020.
The Daily Meal describes Jay's:
"With more than 20 years of experience under his belt, there’s no shortage of pizza-making skills at Jay Langfelder’s eponymous Jay’s Artisan Pizzeria. The Buffalo, New York, restaurant offers wood-fired, Detroit- and Sicilian-influenced pies, featuring fun flavors like shishito and corn with garlic, fresh mozzarella, Calabrian chili cream and grana padano; or caramelized fennel and onion with a cheese blend and capricho de cabra goat cheese."
In 2019, Jay's Artisan Pizza landed at #89 on the list, Bocce Club Pizza ranked at #65, and LaNova came in at #63.
This year, both Bocce Club Pizza and LaNova were missing from the top 101.
This year's list highlighted female and Black-owned businesses as well, and the list doesn't take large pizza chains into consideration, instead "this list is focused on smaller establishments and local favorites that have found success branching out to a few locations."
The Daily Dish looked at local media coverage, reader suggestions and online reviews of pizzerias to be considered.
