If you’re looking for the best pizza on the planet, you’re actually going to have to visit two different restaurants, one in Italy and one in New York.

Francesco Martucci’s I Masanielli in Caserta, Italy, and Anthony Mangieri’s Una Pizza Napoletana in New York tied for the honor of best pizzeria in the 50 Top Pizza’s ranking of the 100 best in the world. Wednesday’s announcement came only a few months after Una Pizza was named the best pizzeria in America by the same organization.

“This guide encompasses many different styles of pizza, even if, obviously, the Neapolitan style, both classic and contemporary, is the most popular,” the guide’s curators said in a statement. “We are immensely satisfied because this journey around the world to capture the current pizza panorama was particularly rewarding.”

The top five were rounded out by Giuseppe Cutraro’s Peppe Pizzeria in Paris, 50 Kalò in Naples and 10 Diego Vitagliano Pizzeria, also in Naples. In total, 40 Italian pizzerias were named to list, along with 25 elsewhere in Europe, 15 in the United States, 15 in the Asia-Pacific area, four in South America and one in Africa. That means every continent had at least one of its pizza places make the grade.

The Lower East Side’s Una Pizza Napoletana has been a longtime favorite for stateside pizza connoisseurs and tourists alike. Mangieri brought Neapolitan pies to the city at a time when most places were selling classic, floppy NYC slices. He left for San Francisco in 2010 but came back to America’s pizza capital in 2018, where he’s been slinging up pies ever since.

“Every day since opening Una Pizza in 1996 I’ve had the dream to pursue this work without compromise,” he said in a statement when Una Pizza Napoletana was honored as the best pizzeria in the U.S. “We’ve been so blessed to be able to do this and continue to learn and grow as a pizzeria and as pizza makers.”
