CHICAGO (CBS) — There’s a new survey out on America’s best pizzas, and Chicago has three pizza places in the top ten.
Pizanos, which is owned by Rudy Malnati Jr., ranked fourth, while Vito & Nicks, 84th and Pulaski, ranked No. 5.
Gino’s East came in at No. 8.

“My mother is still making the dough, at her age, at 86, and going store-to-store, keeping it on a consistent basis,” Malnati said.
Pizanos and Ginos have several locations in the Chicago area.
Three New York pizza places took the top three spots:
1) Di Fara, Brooklyn
2) Motorino, Manhattan
3) John’s Pizza, Manhattan
Shine!, an online lifestyle site run the Yahoo!, started with a list of more than 140 places for pizza and turned the voting over to a panel of about 20 American chefs, restaurant critics, and pizza authorities. Most of them, besides the Los Angeles Times’ Jonathan Gold and Chicago Magazine’s Penny Pollack, requested anonymity, according to Yahoo’s website.
