Best of Boston

2009 BEST Pizza

Picco

Previous years have seen this contest split into mini categories like ‘Best Thin Crust’ and ‘Best Toppings.’ But it’s time to set aside compiled-ish things and commit to a single, superlative winner: namely, Picco, for combining the chewy-crisp crust of Santarpio’s with the fresh (okay, ‘gourmet’) toppings that have earned Emma’s such a devoted following. It’s the best of both worlds on a 14-inch disk of dough, and you won’t find its match in the city.
