With all of the change we’ve experienced over the past couple of years, one thing remains constant … people’s love for pizza. In fact, pizza was the top-searched dish on Google Maps during every month of 2021 in the U.S.

To celebrate National Pizza Day on February 9, we’ve compiled some not-so-cheesy Google Maps pizza trends so you can get a slice of the action:

  • In garlic crust we trust. For the second year in a row, Domino’s Pizza remains the top searched pizza spot in the U.S.
  • Pizza cravin’ in New Haven. As of February 2022, Connecticut is the state with the most pizzerias per capita. New Jersey comes in at a close second.
  • A not-so-meaty New York Slice. People in the New York metropolitan area search for “vegan pizza” on Google Maps more than in any other U.S. metro.
  • Rolling in the deep dish. It likely comes as no surprise that people in Chicago search for “deep dish” on Google Maps more than in any other U.S. metro. In fact, Google Maps searches for “deep dish” in Chicago are nearly four times higher than the second place city, which is Los Angeles.
  • Which city can’t be topped? Of the 10 top-searched local pizzerias on Google Maps, nine are located in New York or Chicago. The one exception? Seattle’s ROCCO’S.

Shop talk with a ‘crust’-ed pizza source

To celebrate the occasion we also caught up with Chuck Mound, a level 10 Local Guide from New Jersey with a lifetime of pizza love. Seriously, when he was 10 years old he tried to set a Guinness World Record for the most consecutive days eating a slice of pizza! Today he travels the country as a sport performance coach leaving reviews of pizzerias.

How did you get started sharing reviews on Google Maps?

In my 30-year coaching career, I’ve coached on all levels of competition — from youth to professional, including Olympic and NFL teams. While presenting in over 45 states, I’ve had the opportunity to eat the best foods around the country during pre- and post-game festivities. I like to help people not only understand where to go, but what you should order once you get there.

What qualities do you look for in a pizzeria and how do you approach your pizza reviews?

When I go somewhere new I love to know their niche or their signature dish. I like to dive in and learn more about the dough, the crust and the sauce. When reviewing places I try to describe the whole experience. Customer service can be just as important as the food.

What types of pizzerias get you excited?

I love to support local businesses. I won’t go cookie cutter. I like to find that hole-in-the-wall place where Grandma is making the sauce. I feed off of passion. If you’re passionate about what you do, that’s fantastic … I’ve eaten a lot of bad pizza, I’m over eating bad pizza.

Check out Chuck’s list of knead-to-know pizzerias around the U.S. And once you’ve chewed your way through that, we’ve compiled some of the top searched and best-reviewed pizza spots —  excluding major chains — on Google Maps!

A milestone for King’s Cross: a local innovation hub

Over the last few years, King’s Cross has truly transformed, becoming a thriving hub of innovation and creativity. The transformation is a sign of the UK’s strengths, with its incredible local talent and strong history of leading technological and scientific progress. These strengths inspired us to invest here in King’s Cross, in one of our most ambitious developments to date.

Today, together with local MP, Keir Starmer, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, leader of Camden Council Georgia Gould, and our building partners, we celebrated a major milestone in the construction of our new King’s Cross office – and in our long-standing commitment to the UK – as we placed the final beam on our new development.

Keir Starmer, Leader of the Labour Party and MP for Holborn and St Pancras said:

“It’s fantastic to attend not only as the leader of the Labour Party and local MP but as a proud local resident of more than 25 years. Congratulations to Google on your magnificent new building, and for all it represents – a seizing of opportunity, harnessing of talent, the creation of good, sustainable jobs and an immense contribution to our community. You’re showing what can be achieved when forward looking local government partners with the ingenuity of the private sector.”

We have long believed that creativity is spurred by environments that promote connection and wellbeing. This is more important than ever as we adapt to a future of flexible, hybrid working. Our new King’s Cross building will be equipped with new workplace technologies to help global and remote teams collaborate more effectively, build relationships, learn from colleagues and dream up new ways to solve complex challenges.

It will also be a place for community and connection thanks to the ground floor retail and community spaces, which are being curated with — and for — the local community. In the coming weeks, in partnership with more than 30 youth organisations in Camden, we’re excited to open our doors to 500 local young people for a week of taster sessions to inspire school students and job seekers with careers in technology, as well as more than 100 local work experience students.

Innovation extends to the design of the building itself, which is playing an important role in helping us to achieve our goal of going carbon free by 2030. We’re pioneering new technologies that will make our King’s Cross office our most ambitious smart building to date, including a system of 13,500 interconnected devices that will work together to improve energy efficiency in real time.

While the doors of our new King’s Cross development won’t open until 2024, incredible work is already underway nearby. The neighbourhood is home to thousands of our engineers working on products like Android, Wear OS, Search and Google Business Profiles, which are used the world over. In fact, many of the team behind some of our newest products – to be released later this year – are based right here in King’s Cross. We look forward to growing these teams and being a part of the local community’s future growth and development.

Protecting people’s privacy on health topics

Privacy matters to people — especially around topics such as their health. Given that these issues apply to healthcare providers, telecommunications companies, banks, tech platforms, and many more, we know privacy protections cannot be solely up to individual companies or states acting individually.

Privacy matters to people — especially around topics such as their health. Given that these issues apply to healthcare providers, telecommunications companies, banks, tech platforms, and many more, we know privacy protections cannot be solely up to individual companies or states acting individually. That’s why we’ve long advocated for a comprehensive and nationwide U.S. privacy law that guarantees protections for everyone, and we’re pleased to see recent progress in Congress.
