Travel Maven

From downtown areas to strip malls and shopping complexes, it seems like there is a pizzeria on every corner in Tennessee.

Picking just one pizza restaurant and deeming it the best is no easy feat, but that is precisely what the editors over at Reader's Digest have done.

They've scoured the country for the best pizza in every state and Big Ed's Pizza in Oak Ridge has come out on top.

A longtime go-to for residents and visitors alike, Big Ed's got its start back in 1970 and quickly became a beloved favorite known for its old-school digs and a menu full of New York-style pies.

What sets Big Ed's apart from other pizzerias is their dedication to high standards and practices. Even though the original owner, Big Ed passed away in 1998, the pizzeria is still family owned and operated. Their pizza dough, sauce, and sausage are all freshly made in accordance with Big Ed’s original recipes.

The menu here is simple and straight to the point: pizza, coke, and beer.

Popular favorites include the BBQ chicken, veggie, and the meat classic pie topped with ham, pepperoni, pork sausage, and hamburger.
