MILWAUKEE — Beer, brats and cheese, move over - Milwaukee's pizza is now in the spotlight.

According to a new survey from the Daily Meal, Milwaukee's Zaffiro’s Pizza on the east side has the 71st best pizza in the country.

The Daily Meal found Zaffiro’s is the 71st best out of 101 pizza joints across the country. The list only includes local businesses, and no chains are included.

"Zaffiro’s Pizza is a friendly neighborhood bar and pizzeria in Milwaukee known for its thin-crust pie and possible sports celeb sightings," DM writes.

"Don’t expect to find squash blossoms, goat cheese or honey drizzles here — just cheese, pepperoni, sausage, anchovies and other essential toppings. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it," according to the article.

If you're looking to get a slice, Zaffiro's is located at 1724 N. Farwell Ave.

In other news, Milwaukee's rivalry with Chicago also continued in the article. According to the Daily Meal, the second-best pizza joint in America is Pequod’s, known for their deep dish.
