Massey's

Three-time defending champion Massey's was nearly unseated this year by a hard-charging underdog - make that hard-charging Hounddog's. The home of Smokin' Joe's fell just short, though, as Massey's and its signature thin cornmeal crust scored the glory once again.

And why not? They've been rocking the same time-tested secret recipe since 1962. They never short you on toppings. And they're not afraid to experiment with menu upgrades like chicken wings and thick-crusted Sicilian pizza. A well-rounded shop with history and taste? Hard to beat.

Runners-up: Hounddog's, Plank's on Parsons
