When it comes to pizza you definitely don't have to drive to Chicago to get some of the best tasting slices in the state.

You could just find a place in Rockford, because 1., we've got plenty of pizza joints, and 2. they aren't just the best in The Forest City, these places are some of the best in the entire state of Illinois.

The issue is, who makes the best pizza in Rockford?

Ask anyone and they'll tell you their own personal preference but what if you left it up to food reviewers themselves?

So I decided to take a closer look at what I think are a few of the preeminent review sites when it comes to food on the internet, Yelp, TripAdvisor, and DineRank.

Searching for Best Pizza in Rockford, I found three different lists with some very notable and noticeable pizza joints occupying differing spots.

From there I looked at the rankings from all three sites and tallied up where each pizza joint landed. After combining all three scores I decided to use a golf score approach toward ranking the best pizza joints in Rockford.

For example, the number one pizza joint was the highest rated on Yelp, and DineRank and was third-highest on TripAdvisor totaling a score of 5. If a pizza joint didn't make the top 25, they would be assigned a score of 26.

Who makes Rockford's best pizza? I guess you can say you've got definitive proof.
