Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans have turned to their favorite takeout and delivery foods for for comfort and stress relief. That, of course, includes pizza.

People in the U.S. have strong opinions about their ’za ― from the value of crusts to the acceptability of pineapple as a topping. And while preferences may differ based on geography, there are some big overlaps as well.

In honor of National Pizza Day on Tuesday, Google put together a list of the top-searched pizza places in each state. They analyzed Google Maps data in the U.S. throughout 2020 to see where people were looking to satiate their pizza cravings.

Unsurprisingly, popular pizza chains dominated. The top-searched pizza place in every state was either Domino’s (30 states) or Pizza Hut (18 states) ― with the exception of Papa John’s in Ohio and Jet’s Pizza in Michigan. Google also identified top-searched local spots, like Scarr’s and Joe’s in New York and Sally’s Apizza in Connecticut.

Notably, California and New York were the only states where “vegan pizza” was among the top pizza-related searches on Google Maps. People ordered the most pizza on Google Maps in October, and Saturday was the most popular day to order, followed by Friday and Monday.

Without further ado, here are Google Maps’ top pizza destinations in each state ― including most-searched overall and more local favorites.
