Best of Boston

2009 Best Pizza


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.
