Even though it seems like there is a pizza parlor on every corner in New York City the "Big Apple" wasn't rated #1 on the list put out by rent.com.
Of course, Buffalo is known for its unique style of pizza with cupped pepperoni and while it is very good and delicious, Buffalo only came in at number 7 on the Top 10 list for best cities for pizza.
So, what other New York cities are left that could be at the top of the list? Albany, Syracuse, Binghamton? All no. It is the Flower City, aka Rochester, New York that was ranked as the best city for pizza in the entire country.
