Food Network Magazine’s editors set out six months ago to find the best pizzas in America and now, in the September issue, they will reveal the winners, which include a pie made by Ian's Pizza.
Owner Ian Gurfield opened a store in Madison at age 24 to serve innovative snacks to party-going college kids, and Food Network Magazine’s editors were won over by the Mac n’ Cheese: a medium-thin crust is topped with a layer of crème fraîche, shredded mozzarella and cooked macaroni, with a sprinkle of Wisconsin cheddar for a pie that is golden, bubbly and extra cheesy.
"I think a lot of people relate it to home-cooked mac' n cheese when they come to college," said Ian's General Manager Nick Stratman. "And they just find it really bizarre that it's on a pizza, and it kinda becomes their fix."
It's one of the 50 best pies in the country, according to the magazine.
