We vehemently defend our pies against sneering New Yorkers and Chicagoans, and for good reason. It’s some of the best in the country. Of course, pizza, like many things, is subjective.
But Boston caters to all tastes, textures, and budgets. Whether you like your thin crusts or your thick crusts, your Neapolitans or your Sicilians, your reds or whites, this city’s got you covered. While many places on this list offer both New York-style thin crust as well as thicker varieties, I’ve sorted the pizzas into what type of crust I like to order most often at each location.
My favorite pizza places in Boston run the gamut from takeout spots to elegant restaurants. If you’re unfamiliar with some of them, you’ve got some pie to try.
