#71 Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, Florida (Pepperoni)

Chef and company founder Anthony Bruno brings classic flavors with an urban spin to pizza lovers with Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza at his 42 different locations spanning Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Connecticut. The pizza is cooked at 800 degrees in a coal-burning oven for a crisp crust that provides a "well done favor," the chain’s trademark phrase. Unlike many restaurants on this list, Anthony’s was inspired by Brooklyn-style pizzerias that value ambiance almost as much as the taste of the pie. Bruno opened his first location in South Florida and quickly expanded throughout the state before taking its exceptional pepperoni pie national.
