These places are listed in no particular order, but they’re the ones our readers have suggested as being some of the best spread across the state, so start planning your pizza bucket list now!

19. Pizzeria Scotty - Milwaukee
There are more than a dozen spectacular pizza joints in Milwaukee, but this hidden gem on the far west side is one of my favorites.

One pizza feeds me and my husband for dinner and a couple of lunches. 9809 W Oklahoma Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53227
