Pizza is a great equalizer. It’s round. It’s shareable. It’s a communal convenience food and one of the first innovative meals to be delivered directly to your home; before DoorDash and Grubhub, there were pizza delivery guys saving dinnertime for busy families and babysitters everywhere.
This Pizza Issue is an ode to the dish as extolled by both CityBeat staffers and readers. In addition to our favorite pizza places — and our favorite dishes to eat there — we have listed the Best Pizza winners from the 2021 Best Of Cincinnati issue as chosen by readers in both “chain” and “non-chain” categories. So, like pizza itself, this publication is a communal experience. Just don’t try to eat it.
