Buffalo has made Travel + Leisure’s list of “Cities with America’s Favorite Pizzas“. If you’re from Buffalo, them you know that we have pizza battles that are constantly being waged between pizzerias. Back in December, @SexySlices ranked his favorites on Buffalo Rising (see here). Buffalo’s style of pizza is somewhere between deep dish and thin crust – hometown pizza aficionados know to look for places that serve up the best ‘cup and char’ pepperoni for the real ‘local’ experience.
Buffalo’s own pizza is a distinct mix between Chicago and New York-style pies. Try the medium-crust version at Vera Pizzeria (a T+L editor’s favorite spot in Buffalo for a cocktail and a slice) or pull double-duty with Buffalo-style wings and pizza at Just Pizza & Wing Co. Another popular option is Romeo & Juliet’s Café. To truly experience Buffalo’s distinct food scene, order a Buffalo-style pizza topped with Buffalo chicken.
