The prestigious guide revealed this year’s list of winners in an online awards ceremony last Wednesday.
It’s the fourth year in a row that a pizzeria in Campania has taken out the top prize.
This year, Francesco Martucci’s I Masanielli outscored the pizzeria that had won the previous three years, Franco Pepe’s Caiazzo eatery, Pepe In Grani.
The latter came second this year, while Verona pizzeria, I Tigli, rounded out the top three.
Campania, the region around Naples, is home to 16 pizzerias in this year’s rankings, followed by Lazio, Lombardy and Tuscany (six), Veneto (four), Piedmont, Sardinia and Sicily (two), and Abruzzo, Basilicata, Emilia-Romagna, Liguria, Marche and Puglia (one).
50 Top Pizza 2020 also ranked the best pizzerias in Japan, Canada, Asia and Oceania.
Among those awarded top prizes were Pizzeria Braceria Cesari (Nagoya, Japan), Via Tevere Pizzeria Napoletana (Vancouver, Canada), CIAK - In The Kitchen (Hong Kong), and 400 Gradi (Brunswick, Australia).
400 Gradi also took home the award for the best Neapolitan pizza outside Italy.
Due to COVID-19, the guide was unable to rank the best pizzerias in the USA, South America and Africa this year.
