Pizza is perfect, that's what I like to say. I don't think I've ever met someone who doesn't enjoy a good pie. Pizza is a staple of America, and with "the best pizza" seemingly on every corner wherever you go, The Daily Meal has taken to an annual list with the "101 Best Pizzas in America" to settle the debate! This year, 2 Maryland spots made the list and one right in our backyard down in Washington, DC.
As far as Maryland goes, Inferno Pizzeria Napoletana in Darnestown came in at #83 while Baltimore pizzeria Pizza di Joey came in at #80. Here's what The Daily Meal had to say about both:
Inferno Pizzeria Napoletana
This 44-seat pizzeria in Darnestown, Maryland, exclusively serves seasonal wood-fired pizza in the style of “canotto,” which translates to “inflatable raft” in Italian. This is a reference to the pie’s airy outer ring. Ahigher water contentallows it to puff up and in some places, bubble and char. The Margherita pizza is popular here, as is the fig and smoked prosciutto pie with crescenza, fior di latte and basil.
Pizza di Joey
Pizza di Joey is a Baltimore Sun’s Best 2020 Readers’ Choice winner.The spot serves authentic New York-style pizza to diners in Baltimore using fresh, seasonal ingredients from local farms and markets. This veteran-owned shop is known for its 12-inch “monster” slices, and from what we hear, Buffalo chicken is the move.
