Pizzeria Lola one of America's most Instagrammed pizza joints

An Italian tourism company put together a list of the country's most popular pizza places according to Instagram

A local restauranteur has received yet another national accolade — this time, by a tourism company that compiled a list of the 100 most-Instagrammed pizza places across the country. 

Pizzeria Lola, found at 55th and Xerxes in southwest Minneapolis, ranks 51st with 10,783 tags in photos by visitors, according to tour operator Italy4Real. 

It is known for its mixture of traditional and Asian-influenced pizza toppings, including its famous Korean BBQ pizza, and its Lady Zaza that features kimchi and Korean sausage.

Ann Kim, who runs Pizzeria Lola, Young Joni and Hello Pizza, won the James Beard Award for Best Chef Midwest in 2019. 

Kim, who immigrated to Minnesota with her family from South Korea in the 1970s, attended Columbia University in New York and worked as an actor with the Children's Theater Company before opening her first restaurant, Pizzeria Lola, in 2010. 

A few local burger restaurants also made a national "best of" list recently — including The Nook at No. 9.
