I purchased a Stanbroil pizza oven attachment for my pellet grill and gave it a go for the first time last night. It worked great, reaching a high temperature of 800 degrees, but my dough needs some work. As I work on my homemade pizza skills, I'll continue to search for the best slice in Minnesota.

Recently, I saw a widely respected brand in the food world unveil its choice for the best pizza in the state for 2023, and it looks amazing! Get those delicious details below.

Are You Above Or Below Average?

According to Slice Life, the average American consumes approximately 46 pizza slices each year - that's about 23 pounds of pizza!

Taste of Home recently shared its pick for the best pizza in each state on its magazine and website, which focuses on showcasing exceptional restaurants and amazing recipes.

National Publication Names Minnesota's Best Pizza


Pepperoni is America's favorite pizza topping, but Minnesota's best slice, according to Taste of Home, goes beyond the ordinary pepperoni or basic cheese.

Minnesota's Best Pizza Is "Not For The Faint of Heart."

Not for the faint of heart, we top this pie with hand-made, thinly-sliced Persian beef, roasted harissa, ripe cherry tomatoes, feta & a good helping of fresh Italian parsley!

Taste of Home says the ultimate pizza in Minnesota is the Persian Beef, Tomato, Feta & Harissa Pizza at Black Sheep Pizza in St. Paul.

Black Sheep is open 7 days a week and has two locations in Minneapolis.

Taste of Home writer Kelsey Mulvey said, "With a tempting selection of 12 options, you can't go wrong at Black Sheep Pizza! However, if you have to pick just one, give the exotic Persian beef, tomato, feta, and harissa a try."
