Have you ever wanted to take a road trip fueled by your passion for food? Channel your inner Guy Fieri and let your stomach guide you across America in search of the best pizza! This pizza road trip itinerary makes pit stops in several major cities that boast their own style of pizza. Gather some hungry friends and hit the road! Your taste buds are in for a treat.

Thin Crust – St. Louis

St. Louis serves pizza with a cracker-thin crust topped with a tangy sauce and loaded with Provel cheese—a blend of cheddar, Swiss and provolone cheeses. It's often dusted with loads of oregano, and the round pizzas are cut into square slices. Chow down at the iconic Imo's Pizza, Farotto's or Guido's.

Deep Dish – Chicago

Chicago's iconic deep dish pizza is a true pie loaded with cheese, toppings and tomato sauce on top. You'll need a knife and fork for this delicacy. Dig in at Lou Malnati's, Giordano's or The Art of Pizza.

Rectangular – Detroit

In Detroit, pizza is rectangular instead of round. The crust is thick and chewy, and the pizza is topped with Wisconsin brick cheese first then topped with thick tomato sauce. Grab a slice at Buddy's Pizza, Loui's Pizza or Cloverleaf Pizza.

The OG – New York

New York-style pizza is the quintessential American pizza—the hand-tossed crust with stretchy mozzarella cheese cut into enormous slices that can be folded and eaten on the go. It doesn't get much better than that! Check out Joe's Pizza, Lombardi's or Di Fara (Anthony Bourdain was a fan!).
