By Pizza Today


Hot100_2014logoEach 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 is a testament to the ingenuity, diligence and skill of the pizzeria owners who make the grade.
