Best Pizza

1st Place: Pizza Del Re
2nd Place: Sammy’s Pizza
3rd Place: Geno’s Pizza

For decades Pizza Del Re (911 N. Hastings Way, Eau Claire) has been the ubiquitous go-to spot for end-of-season sports parties, birthday celebrations, and personal eating contests, so it only makes sense that the buffet-style restaurant is atop the mountain of ’za supremacy yet again. Their smorgasbord of thin-crust, no-frills pies will surely send you back to your kiddie-soccer glory days. Coming in at a piping hot second is another area institution: Sammy’s Pizza (2812 London Road, Eau Claire). Their secret dough and sauce recipes have been used for 60-plus years, because they know not to mess with a good thing. And debuting in third is Geno’s Pizza (5110 Fairview Drive, Eau Claire) with its thin-crust Chicago-style pizzas. — Bailey Berg
