The top fifty pizzas in the world come from restaurants all over the world including Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, New Zealand, Moscow and Dubai. Rudy’s even managed to place higher than Italian pizzas made in Rome, Florence and Milan as well as Naples. As their dedicated pizzaiolos follow the traditions of Neapolitan pizzas, their positioning is particularly impressive. 

According to Big Seven, the best pizza in the world can be found in Illinois, which pipped L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele in Naples to second place. Only three other pizza restaurants in the UK made the top fifty list; Paesano Pizza in Glasgow (46th), and London-based Made of Dough (33rd) and Pizza Pilgrims (25th).
