Few food items around the world are more contentious than pizza. Whether it’s squabbling over New York vs. New Haven pizza, or the age-old pineapple debate, pizza is the food that could launch a thousand ships, start wars, and divide families.

A local pizza joint isn’t just another food option — it’s a point of community pride fiercely defended by its loyal customers. The question is: What’s the best, most popular pizza place in your area, and is there any semblance of a consensus? Usually, it would seem not, but the truth is easy enough to gather these days. Thanks to a good look at what pizza places people searched for the most on Google Maps in 2020, Google was able to determine the most popular pizza joint in every US state (at least in terms of which spots people were searching for on Maps).

Google also unearthed some additional tidbits about the country’s pizza preferences:

  • California and New York are the only states where “vegan pizza” was among the top pizza-related searches.
  • The most popular day to order pizza is Saturday, followed by Friday.
  • The most pizza is ordered in the month of October.
