It's Official: This is the Best Pizza in the World

In the most noble quest of 2016, one man sought to find what many have sought before him: the best pizza in the world.

For his book 'Where to Eat Pizza', Daniel Young recruited over a thousand "food experts and aficionados" from across the globe to vote for the best pizza.

He asked a total of 1,077 chefs, critics and industry experts from 48 different countries to recommend their most beloved pizzerias.

The final 1,705 pizza joints listed in the book weren't ranked on popularity. However, Daniel since unveiled the 20 which received the most love.
