Nashville a Top 10 Pizza Destination? I Had No Idea ...

Posted By on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 7:59 AM

In a sign that the foodie fawning over Nashville's culinary scene by the national media may have finally jumped the shark, Travel + Leisure magazine recently named Music City the No. 9 destination for pizza in the country. Now I'm all about pizza, and have written about some great local pies here, here, here, here and here. And that's not even to mention the fine offerings of Five Points Pizza, Soulshine, or the legendary belly ham pizza at City House, much less the spate of new places coming to town.

But No. 9? Really? Of course, this poll has already drawn some questioning from the national food press for naming Chicago No. 1 and not even listing New York City second. Providence, R.I. earned the No. 2 spot, with New York at No. 3. And San Francisco isn't even on the list.

So what do you think, Bitesters? Are we worthy of this vaunted status? What would you hold up as Nashville's premier pie if the T+L editors asked you to take them to the best of the best? Where do you come down in the Windy City/Big Apple debate? Have you had a Providence pizza, and what's so great about it? Is it true that you can drive across the whole state of Rhode Island for only 10 bucks in cab fare?

Cut yourself a slice and pile on in the comments.
