In terms of quality of pizza, that remains a subjective art form. So the list isn't just an opinion on who makes the "best" pizza. Rather, the list was calculated on population of the city, pizza per density, pizza per capita, and proportion of pizza restaurants in the area.

As states, the top 10 has a decidedly northeastern flare -- the area of the country traditional known for pizza. In particular, New England takes the prize this time around, dominating the top 10.

Despite its reputation for pies, New York City did not make it into the Top 10. It was the New York city of Rochester that took the top spot. And while many would consider it an excellent stop for pierogis, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was second place for pizza.

The data was compiled from "over 300 of the nation's biggest cities," said the site.

Rounding out the top 10 list were:
- New Haven, Connecticut
- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
- Bridgeport, Connecticut
- Miami, Florida
- Buffalo, New York
- Cambridge, Massachusetts
- Worcester, Massachusetts
- Manchester, New Hampshire
