My Top 10 Pizza Places in the Northeast

Though it is hardly news, I must stress once again how much I love pizza. And I am always searching for that perfect pie (it's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it). This summer, I have found a couple of places I had never been to that are now ranked among the best pizza places I have been to in New England. The places? Bianchi's Pizza at Revere Beach, and Frank Pepe's Pizzeria in New Haven, CT. These two phenomenal pizza places are definitely in my top 10 for the Northeast. What are the others? Please see below--these are in order, more or less, though my favorites are constantly changing:

1. Grimaldi's, Brooklyn, NY
2. Santarpio's, East Boston, MA
3. Pizzeria Regina, Boston, MA
4. Frank Pepe's Pizzeria, New Haven, CT
5. Galleria Umberto, Boston, MA
6. Lynwood Cafe, Randolph, MA
7. Sicilia's, Providence, RI
8. Bianchi's Pizza, Revere Beach, MA
9. The Paddock, Somerville, MA
10. Tripoli Bakery, Lawrence, MA

you may notice some excellent pizza places missing from this list, including Emma's in Cambridge, and Napoli in Lawrence, but there are only so many pizza places you can put in a top 10 list (namely 10). By the way, if you have a favorite pizza place, feel free to either post a comment to this blog entry or write a description of the pizza place on our Viewers' Favorite Restaurants page.

Lynwoods is the #1 on the South Shore. For metrowest, try Liberty Pizza in Natick.

I am a New Haven native, and working at the Italian bakery next to Pepe's for 5 years throughout high school and some college has provided me with loads and loads of Pepe's pizza. But I am now in school in Boston and I must say, Bostone pizza's Sicilian slices are quite good. We don't have much of those back home, but they are worth checking out :)

I have no arguments with your list and have been to all of the above excepting Sicilias. (I think. Have been to a couple places in Providence but not sure if this was one of them). In its place I may add Lombardi's in NYC or La Hacienda in Somerville, MA
