A worthless list.  These mean nothing.  Your never going to get anyone to agree on a top pizzas list.

Good reading, thanks for the link. I found it much more than 'worthless', but quite interesting. Must have cost a ton if he really made it to all these places. Sure wish I could afford to go on a search trip like that someday. Spend 6 months traveling and eating pizza and BBQ, what a life.....

Take them for what they are -- one man's opinion -- and I think they can be quite enjoyable.

These types of lists are always coming out -- Best Pizza, Best Burgers, etc., and of course they are always subjective.  Of course you'll never get a consensus, but I'm always amused by how up in arms people get over them.

Still a good read I think.

He's a journalist.They have to write about something to get paid.I linked to the following article by him some time ago:

http://men.style.com/gq/blogs/alanrichman/2008/02/made-in-japan.html

In it he claims to have found paradise in a Neapolitan style pizzeria in Japan?He also claims to know a lot about Pizza? Yes we are allowed to change our minds and opinions.Maybe it was the Sake talking?Maybe Paradise stiffed him on the virgins?
Yes we don't have to believe the crap that food critics,pizza bloggers,paid journalists, PR publicists tell us is good or bad.Unless of course you are unable to decide for yourself?
What he does offer IMO is a starting point for the stranger in some cities to find something hopefully a little better that PH or Dominos.Thats all.
Please....... GQ and Mens Style for credible pizza advice?
