My favorite pizza is the one that's in front of me! That probably shows a glaring lack of discretion on my part. But the thing is, I really love pizza. And, I'm willing to bet that I'm not the only one who feels that way.

When you're hungry for pizza, but short on cash and Jack's frozen pizza is on sale- -that may be the pizza you chow down on.

But for the sake of argument, Best Things South Dakota came up with their list of the Seven Best Pizza Places in South Dakota.

Charlie's claims to be the oldest pizza place in South Dakota. It opened in 1959 and no one has challenged that delicious claim. Their specialty pizzas are amazing! Just check  out that Reuben pizza above.

We are so lucky that Charlie's expanded back to Sioux Falls and we've had the benefit of having Charlie's catered in for lunch numerous times. No one misses lunch at work on those days!

Best Things South Dakota had two pieces of advice about this wonderful pizza place and that is that they only accept cash and don't skimp on the cheese bread!

The toppings are abundant and flavorful, the hand-tossed sourdough crust is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and the dough is the best in the state.--Best Things South Dakota
