Today is National Pizza Day, and while cities like New York and Chicago are the first ones that people think of when they think pizza, Detroit was ranked as the “best pizza city in America,” according to Anytime Estimate. Their criteria for their rankings were weighted and the and included; Google Trends interest, pizza restaurants per 100,ooo people and affordability of pizza. Based on those factors Detroit was ranked first in America. Here’s what they had to say:

Detroit is the best pizza city in the U.S. The Motor City boasts the most independent pizza restaurants per capita (6 per 100,000 residents) out of any city on our list. Detroit ranks No. 1 in “pizza passion” — in other words, locals are searching Google for an extra large variety of pizza styles.
