BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — From deep dish to thin crust, from Chicago-style to New York-style, there's nothing like a big hot slice of pizza to bring a little food joy to your life. The versatile food allows you to pile any amount or any kind of toppings, allowing you to create your own culinary masterpiece.

Unless it includes pineapple - then we're throwing hands.

I kid. Let's face it just about everyone can agree that pizza is one of man's greatest creations. Of course, what we can't necessarily agree on is where is the best place to get it!

So we asked our social media followers to tell us where the best place to grab a slice in Kern County. And we got a TON of recommendations. To help narrow down the list, we eliminated the major chains (sorry Dominos, Papa Johns, Little Caesars, Pizza Hut) - not that anyone really recommended those. Then we eliminated those locations that got two or fewer recommendations.

Unlike some of our other non-scientific polls (breakfast, pasta) which were very much Bakersfield-centric, this one produced locations all over Kern County. Coming out on top with the most recommendations was Pizza Barn in Kernville, followed by Rusty's and Pizzaville USA in Bakersfield. Bakersfield Pizza Co. & Bar came in fourth and there was a three-way tie for fifth between Jerry's Pizza & Pub, Mountain Mike's Pizza, and Tony's Firehouse Grill and Pizza, all in Bakersfield. Also making the list were places in Delano and Tehachapi.
