The Wall Street Journal's Market Watch loved Twin Cities pizza. Which places did it single out?

On Sunday, Market Watch (published by the Wall Street Journal) ranked the Twin Cities as the sixth best city in the country for pizza. This is the second time this year that a national publication has cited Minneapolis-St.Paul as among the best pizza in the nation.

The article calls out by name Punch Pizza for its classic "Verace Pizza Napoletana"-style pies, Pizza Luce for its looser interpretations of Neapolitan pizza, and Pizzeria Lola for its "artisan style" pizzas.

In January, Food & Wine magazine cited both Punch Pizza and Pizzeria Lola as being among their top 50 picks in the country, with Punch landing at the No. 15 spot and Lola coming in at No. 45.

According to Market Watch, " Readers may have just discovered the Twin Cities' array of classic and quirky pizzas: The metropolis climbed nine slots since last year."

Let's see how we fare next year as beloved local pizza places seem to be opening up on the regular. How will places like this week's newly opened Hello Pizza or Burch Steak & Pizza help us in the national rankings. Only time will tell.

Savoy is always gristle sausage and burnt crust. Tottally overrated. And they dont like nonwhite customers. I think Carbones is pretty good for a cheesy fla pizza. Nothing fancy just cheesy good.

Or Punch. Although that's not really like the other pizzas so its almost a different food category by itself.

Galactic Pizza, in Minneapolis!!! Vegetarian/vegan friendly, with organic and local ingredients, and also supports local charities.

Go to the east side of St. Paul to Little Oven. It will be worth the trip!

I forgot about Dulono's thin crust lovliness. It all goes down fantastically w/ a little bluegrass music!

Punch Pizza, Margherita with arugula after! I love to dip the crusts in the olive oil/balsamic and parm they generously provide.
