1761 Centre St, West Roxbury, 617) 327-9047
The owners are the nicest people in the world, and put TLC into their slices. May not be gourmet, but you can taste the hard work put into every slice.

9) Antico Forno

93 Salem St North End (617) 723-6733 

Crust is a little too hard. Only complaint. Other than that, the cheese is perfectly melted, and the sauce is flavorful

8) Sweet Tomatoes Pizza

I am a big fan of chunky tomatoes and thin sliced crust. If that floats your boat as well, than sail your boat over to Sweet Toms

7) Upper Crust Pizza

286 Harvard St, Brookline (617) 734-4900 

The crust really is phenomenal. Usually a fan of thin crust pizza, the Upper Crust crust made me really contemplate my pizza preferences.

6) Pinos Pizzeria

Pino’s, 1920 Beacon St., Brighton. 617-566-6468.

One of the best thin slices I’ve ever had. Also helps that the majority of their business is to drunk kids…but still.

5) Regina Pizzeria

11 1/2 Thacher St., North End. 617-227-0765.

A staple in Boston, Regina did not make a name for themselves for no reason. Just a quality, large slice every time.

4) Shrimp Bella Venezia from Bertuccis

The best topped pizza in the biz.

3)  Santarpios

111 Chelsea St., East Boston. 617-567-9871.

I strictly order Cheese from here, because it doesn’t get any better. They mixed a thin crust with a doughy crust and its incredible.

2) Francos Pizzeria

714- Moody St, Waltham, MA 

Hard to find a better bang for your buck. 2 slices and a drink for 5 bucks…and these slices are mammoth. The cheese is always perfectly melted to the crust, and the pepperonis are perfectly in place as well.

1) Galleria Umbertos

289 Hanover St., North End. 617-227-5709

The Hole in the Wall Umberto’s is the winner of Boston’s Best Pizza. The traditional style square pizza has been absent from our culture for some while, but nobody tell Umberto’s that. It’s a thick crust, but it’s so airy and buttery that it actually completes the pizza. Of course the cheese is phenomenal and melted perfectly, but  the sauce is what does it for me. homemade, a bit spicy, fresh basil and garlic in there….cmon now.
