We've seen lists of best pizzas, fanciest pizzas, and worst pizzas...so why not cheapest pizzas? Exactly!  Well, here it is. Where to find Minnesota's cheapest pizza.

NOT in Minnesota.

We only have this information because of Expensivity.com who...

munched the numbers, mapping the average price of cheese/plain and pepperoni pizza across the pizzerias of every American state. We also found out the average price by city and the density of pizzerias per person around the US.

Munched the numbers...that's good!


I don't know how they munched the numbers...with milk or little pebbles, but the cheapest pizza in Minnesota is in.......North Dakota! That works because North Dakota has the cheapest pizza in the USA and from Moorhead, a lot of people hop across the border, get their pizza, and hop back.

I know you can get a $5 cheese pizza at 5 Dollar Pizza right here in Rochester, so I had to read a little, and it turns out, they looked at the state's average cost of a slice o'cheese pizza.

What About Priciest Pizza?


From Expensivity.com...

Oklahoma is home to America’s priciest pepperoni: the average price is $15.56. Meanwhile, the average Alaskan pepperoni is only America’s seventh most expensive – a bargain, considering Alaska’s top-dollar Margherita. That stretch of pepperoni-colored states through the Midwest is a sore spot for pepperoni lovers because Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, and Nebraska are all among the top ten priciest.

Fun Pizza Price Facts

I have to admit, these might not be the most fun facts you'll ever read, but dang, North Dakota!

  • The cheapest cheese pizza is in North Dakota, where the average price is $6.64.
  • Alaska has the most expensive cheese pizza in the US on average, at $9.21.
  • Rhode Island is the state with the highest density of pizzerias: 37 for every 100,000 residents.
  • Detroit, MI, is the city with the lowest density of pizzerias in the US (just 0.9 per 100k people)
