Best-of lists start more arguments than they settle.

New York Magazine’s rundown of 101 awesome pizzas surely will have pie fans debating the inclusions and the omissions.

Let’s start with the eight Philadelphia-area selections.

Some are painfully obvious – otherwise fine choices plucked from every other best-of list – like the Lombarda from Osteria, Margherita from Pizzeria Stella, Neapolitan from Nomad Pizza, and Lardo from Barbuzzo.  Same for the duck-fat-enriched deep-dish crusts from Garces Trading Company.
