Arguably the best week in Rhode Island is right around the corner.

Providence Pizza Week is back.

From April 14th to the 20th, some of the state's best pizzas will take center stage as local chefs whip up their tastiest creations.

Presented by the Providence Warwick Convention & Vistors Bureau (PWCVB), Navigant Credit Union, and Rhode Island Monthly, Providence Pizza Week can either be a lovely introduction to Rhode Island cuisine or a warm, saucy reminder of why Rhode Island’s pizza reigns supreme.

What Is GoProvidence?

GoProvidence, or the PWCVB, is a helpful tool to navigate the beauty of the Ocean State. It’s a map of what to do, where to go, and how to take full advantage of what the state has to offer.

For Providence Pizza Week, they compile a road map of the best pizza offerings in the state.

“We’re rallying chefs from across the state to cook up their best and most creative takes on pizza—from pies piled high with savory toppings to dessert-style treats, the pizza possibilities are endless,” said PWCVB.

The food in Rhode Island is top-tier and you can’t tell me any differently. From quality and creativity to endless options and charming aesthetics, local restaurants check all the boxes, all the time.

And if you haven’t had a slice of pizza made in Rhode Island, then you’re not living.

The Best of South Shore Bar Pizza

There's pizza, and then there's South Shore Bar Pizza. Birthed in Brockton (and to this writer, perfected in Randolph – Lynwood Café is the true G.O.A.T.), it must meet certain qualifications to be considered "SSBP," which include: it's a 10-inch pie; it has a thin, cracker-like crust with minimal "flop;" the cheese is a blend that features more cheddar than mozzarella; and bonus points if you take it home between two carboard-type plates wrapped in flat brown paper bag. They also usually come with "laced" or "burnt" edges (terminology depends on where you are ordering), which is when the sauce and cheese are extended all the way to the edge of the pan, creating a crispy, flavorful coating to the crust. We reached out to the hugely popular South Shore Bar Pizza Social Club Facebook group to ask the experts to share the best of the best (in no particular order).
