MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Despite the Twin Cities’ exceptional offerings when it comes to dough, sauce and cheese, only one of our pizza palaces has made the list of Daily Meal’s 101 Best Pizzas in America.
That lone selection? Fat Lorenzo’s in south Minneapolis.
According to the website, more than 400 pizzas were considered, researched and tasted.
From that selection, a panel of 46 American chefs, critics, bloggers and pizza enthusiasts narrowed it down to just 101 of America’s best pies.
Fat Lorenzo’s earned spot No. 64 for its classic cheese pie — and for being a “standard for the Twin Cities” that’s tough to match.
“Fat Lorenzo’s named their classic cheese pie as one you can’t beat, and this year’s panel agreed,” the article states.
Daily Meal also makes note of the spot’s “colorful murals” and “unique dining experience,” while listing a few of its other notable offerings.
Of the 101 best pizzas in America, Daily Meal lists 30 from New York state.
