According to Yelp's list of the Top Pizza Spots in the US, the highest-ranked pizza place in the Land of Lincoln is a place called Baked in Galesburg. Baked ranked 40th on the list and was ahead of any pizza place in Chicago/Chicagoland, so what makes Baked special? On Yelp, they say...

"Established in 2012. we are inspired by my grandmother's kitchen where she threw pizza parties starting in the 50s. We buy fresh and local when we can because it's the best. We love music, creating good food, and sharing it with you."

The other pizza places from Illinois that made the Yelp list include Milly's Pizza in the Pan in Chicago, Pomodoro E Mozzarella in St. Charles, Bob's Pizza in Chicago, and Zazas Pizzaria in Chicago, to see the full Yelp list of the Best Pizza Spots in the US, click here!
