7 Central Florida pizza joints ranked among the country's best in new report

You don't have to travel all the way to New York City or Detroit for a good slice of pizza. A new report from The Washington Post proved that great pizza can be found right here in Orlando. 

The Washington Post used over 7.5 million Yelp ratings to create a formula to rank the best regional pizza styles in every state. Those regional styles include New York, Chicago, Detroit, New Haven and Neapolitan. 

In Florida, a few dozen restaurants were ranked, but only two Orlando pizza joints made the cut.
