New pizza place makes prestigious list of nation's best pizzerias


Have you been to Pig Ate My Pizza in Robbinsdale? It's going to get even tougher to sit down for a pie after the restaurant landed on a list compiled by noted gourmet publication Food and Wine. It was named among the nation's best pizza joints.

Pig Ate My Pizza opened in 2013. Food and Wine praised the spot for its "funky, unorthodox pies" and notes that it serves pies with crust options that are both thin and deep-dish brioche and toppings that "range from pulled pork shoulder to potato chips."

There was a modest acknowledgement of the award on the restaurant's Facebook page, where a post announcing the ranking began with "Well looky there!" It went on to say that the pizzeria is honored to be included, adding that "'s exciting to see what all the other dough throwers are up to these days." The post was followed by congratulatory messages fromfans and frequent diners.

The Business Journal noted the Robbinsdale pizzeria was one of just two Midwestern pizza places in the Midwest to make the list. The other Midwestern mention was Burt's Place in Chicago. Most of the list's pizza places are on the West and East coasts.

Right from the start, Pig Ate My Pizza has been well-reviewed. Food website Heavy Table called the fare playful and inventive, writing that the kitchen "skillfully blend(s) creativity, restraint, and technique to produce truly innovative, delicious cuisine."
