👋 Nick here. Pizza is often on my mind — but especially with the new "Chef's Table" season dedicated to our sacred slices.

What's happening: No San Francisco spots are highlighted on the Netflix series' pizza season, but a handful of local joints made this list of the top 50 pizzerias in the U.S.

Details: Top 50 Pizza put the list together and said the final ranking was the "fruit of a long and painstaking work by [its] inspectors who, for an entire year … examined an enormous number of pizzerias spread around the entire country."

  • The group said it took into consideration "the quality of the dough and raw materials used for the toppings."
  • It factored in a restaurant's service and its wine and beverage list, as well.

San Francisco had an impressive showing on the top 50 list, which included:

💭 My thought bubble: Rankings like this are always wonky and sure to spark controversy.

  • All these spots in San Francisco are good, but Tony's as No. 2 in the entire country? I'm not even sure it's the second best in the city.
  • My favorite pizza here — Pizzetta 211 — didn't make the list, but that's OK. It can be my (and now your) little secret.
