Some arguments may never be settled! We could talk all day about where "Upstate New York" begins and never come out with a clear answer. Same with the pizza debate. Which state has the best pizza? New York? Connecticut or, don't even say it, New Jersey?

Rather than offer my opinion, I will let Food & Wine decide so you can get mad at them! Here are their top 5 pizza states along with some of the best places to go to get those delicious pies, including a stop right here in the Capital Region.
