For some reason, in this country we feel we need to create a day or a week for everything. National s'mores day, frozen food month, national clams on the half shell day--seriously, these are all things. Pizza, however, is definitely a big deal. And right now it's national pizza week, which ends today.

Unfortunately, pizza can be a rather contentious issue. Each year we pick the best pizza places in Broward and Palm Beach Counties as part of our best of awards. And each year, some people couldn't agree with us more and other people are pissed. That being said, in honor of the end of national pizza week, we've decided to compile a list of past five year's best pizzas.
