By Pizza Today


Hot 100

Each year, we mail out surveys to independent pizzerias across the nation. Using their responses, we compile our Hot 100 list — a ranking of America’s 100 largest independent pizza operations (based on sales).This issue is eagerly devoured by Pizza Today’s readers and the list you’ll see on pages 50 and 51 is a testament to the ingenuity, diligence and skill of the pizzeria owners who make the grade.
