When it comes to picking the best pizzas in the U.S., there is clearly going to be some division as everyone has their favorites but experts can all agree that this one WNY Pizzeria made the cut when it comes to naming the top 50 pizzas in the U.S.


Coming in 13th place is Kenmore’s very own, Jay’s Artisan Pizza. The article describes Jay’s as,

“An authentic Neapolitan pizza, perhaps taking something from Calabria, in the south of the Peninsula, with ‘nduja to Liguria, in the north, with pesto; perhaps the choice might fall onto the meter-long pan pizza, high and abundantly topped? In this presidium of artisanal leavening, with such attention to detail, you will be spoiled for choice. In the end, anything you end up choosing will be the right choice. The attention to the choice of raw materials, the simplicity, the familiar environment, the attentive service, and the good beer, really make this an experience not to be missed.”

Being within the top 15 contenders, Jay’s Artisan Pizza is now invited to Naples in September for the top 100 in the world list!

This is not the first time this local favorite has made headlines but, with world recognition, Jay’s is something WNYers are proud to have right here in our region. If you haven’t been to Jay’s, this is your wake up call to step out and try em’ out!
