Food Network Magazine has published its picks for best pizzas in each U.S. state. Despite its lack of statehood, the District still merits a mention. And the best pie in D.C. goes to ... the "Smoky" at Comet Ping Pong (5037 Connecticut Ave. N.W.).
So says the magazine:
You won’t find any sauce on the best pie in the house -- and you won’t miss it. The Smoky comes with a double dose of smoke instead: smoked cremini mushrooms and mozzarella, along with bacon and sweet caramelized onions.
What's your pick for best pizza in the city?
Comet Ping Pong’s ‘Smoky’ Pie: Best Pizza in D.C.? was originally published by Washington City Paper on Aug. 3, 2011.
