Author Finds Best Pizza Resides In The “Pizza Belt”

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’ve heard of the sunshine belt, but now there’s the “pizza belt” where the best pies in the U.S. are made.

Ed Levine, author of Pizza: A Slice of Heaven (Universe), went across the U.S looking for the best pizzas and he says the “belt” of Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York and Massachusetts fired up the best tasting pizza in the U.S..

In his words, “Those areas tended to be where many Italian immigrants settled so it’s no surprise to me that I found that.”

Levine not only expanded his knowledge of the popular food, he expanded his waistline, gaining 10 pounds during his year of “research.”

That’s not surprising since Levine admits he ate more than 1000 slices of pizza from “hundreds of pizzerias” during his eating binge, sometimes going to three or four pizzerias a day.

Still, Levine never got fed up with the amount of pizza he consumed. He says, “If it’s good, you’re not going to get sick of it.”
