Forty Italian pizzerias, twenty-five in Europe, fifteen in the United States of America, fifteen in the Asia-Pacific area, four in South America and one in Africa make up the 2022 classification; thereby representing all of the continents.

50 Top Pizza World 2022, the ranking of the best pizzerias in the world, was designed by 50 Top Pizza, an online guide created and curated by Barbara Guerra, Albert Sapere and by the journalist Luciano Pignataro.  The guide selects the best pizzerias in Italy and around the world.  This first edition of the worldwide ranking was full of excitement and great satisfaction for all of the participating pizza makers and for the three curators: “This classification – they say – was made possible thanks to the annual work of our inspectors who collaborate with this project.  They have examined and assessed an enormous number of pizzerias all over the world.  As per the policy of our guide, this was always executed under absolute anonymity.

This was an extremely important challenge – continue the curators. – After presenting the guides for Europe, the USA, Italy, Asia-Pacific, the selection from South America and from Africa, we invited the top establishments from each ranking to Naples for the final worldwide classification for 2022.

This guide encompasses many different styles of pizza, even if, obviously, the Neapolitan style, both classic and contemporary, is the most popular.  The most important cities for pizzas in terms of quality are:  Naples above all, then New York, Tokyo and São Paulo.  We are immensely satisfied because this journey around the world to capture the current pizza panorama was particularly rewarding.”


Federico Quaranta conducted the noteworthy awards ceremony, which was broadcast by Rai Uno with the support of Vittoria Dell’Anna, the panel head for the Asia-Pacific area. Great excitement also surrounded the presentation of the Special Awards which showcased the pizza makers and pizzerias that distinguished themselves in 2022.
