2017 Readers’ Choice Awards: Pizza

Your top 3 places to grab a pie (of the pizza variety) in the Milwaukee area

Pizza Man may have given up No. 1 in the by-the-glass Wine List category this year. But it used brute thin-crust force to move from last year’s second place for top pizza (three locations). Our unexpected No. 2 is Transfer Pizzeria Café (101 W. Mitchell St.), whose pies are chewy, medium-thick and known for garlic-cream (and tomato-based) sauce. Finally, “cracker-thin” is the rallying cry, as Zaffiro’s (1724 N. Farwell Ave.) brought 63 years of pepperoni specials to third place.
