The second annual 50 Top Pizza awards was held on 24 July in Naples, with pizza master Franco Pepe and his Pepe in Grani restaurant in Caiazzo topping the list of the 50 best pizzerias in Italy for a second time. 

The list, which is actually 150-pizzerias strong, is voted for by 100 anonymous inspectors who judge pizzerias on quality, service, drinks, research, and interiors. Best Pizzaiolo was awarded to Simone Padoan of The Tigli in Verona.
