The foodie news source shouted out Punch Pizza in St. Paul as a top pizzeria in the country, thanks to transplant celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern's affinity for the spot.

Check out what they had to say about the Twin Cities eatery:

Andrew Zimmern, host of "Bizarre Foods" and a Food & Wine contributing editor, names this "insanely good Neapolitan pizzeria" one of his top five best pizza spots in the country. His favorite salame e funghi pie is topped with salami from a secret source, earthy mushrooms, fresh garlic, Fontina cheese and dried oregano. "Eating it uncut is the way to go," Zimmern says.

Just remember your knife and fork.

These subjective ratings for food and cities need to go away. Oh wait, I read it too. Crap. Stupid me. Punch has better ingredients than final product in my opinion.

Good on them, although I will admit to being more partial to Black Sheep over Punch.

The word/term 'za has been around for decades. I was making them at the Green Mill on Hennepin nearly thirty years ago and it was used all the time.
