Today is National Pizza day and today is a great day to enjoy one of the best foods in the world. Pizza!

Here in New York, we have thousands of choices for pizza and there is all sort of varieties of pizza based on where you live. In New York City, the pizza is thinner while in Buffalo you get a thicker crust with cupped pepperoni.

Heck, you can even get pineapple on your pizza at some places too.

So where is the best place for Pizza in New York?

Many people will argue over this question.  Most times they will name their neighborhood pizza joint that they have been getting pizza from since they were knee-high to chef's hat, but I am here to tell you that you are missing out on the best pizza if you don't go to a place that isn't known for pizza.

Don't hate on me...but after eating this pizza for 5 years now, but the BEST PIZZA in New York is from........WEGMANS!!!

Yes...Weggies as we call it in our house. I know what you are thinking, how could a grocery store have the best pizza in the entire state of New York? I am sure there are Italian grandmas in the Bronx who just about keeled over when they read this but hear me out.

Wegman's pizza is as about as New York as you can get. They have locations all over the entire state and they make a pie that everyone will enjoy. For my family, my son Avry loves the thin, chewy nature of their pizza. Me, I grew up in Buffalo, I like the cupped pepperonis, and guess what> Wegman's can put them on the thin-crust pizza so we have the best of both worlds!

So today on National Pizza day, try the best pizza in all of New York.  Try a pizza from Wegmans.

I will say, they used to only charge $10 for a large cheese pizza but they recently increased the price to $14, but still, that is a great price for a large pizza.

So if you don't believe me...go ahead and order a large pizza from Wegman's and let me know what you think.
