Lexington named least expensive city in America to buy pizza

Bourbon, basketball, horses and… pizza?

That’s right– Lexington, Kentucky is a hot bed for cheap pizza, according to a new nationwide study. In fact, Lexington is the least expensive city in America to buy a good pie.

Dafiniti, a research and data collection website, set out to determine as much as it could about pizza. The study looked intro pricing, distribution and availability across these great United States, and it found Lexington’s median price of $5.99 for a large plain pizza makes it the cheapest in the land. Buffalo, NY has the most expensive at $14.79.

The entire state of Kentucky had the third lowest price on pizza, behind only Maine and Alaska.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m taking a lunch break for pizza.

    I don’t know what pizza places they went to but I’ve never gotten a large pizza besides little Caesars for $5.99. Plain or not

      Must be lots of Mad Mushroom. Or lots of UK specials.

      Exactly. Not a chance the median price for a large plain pizza is 5.99. Unless they only checked with 3 places.

    The question we must ask ourselves is, do we really want the cheapest pizza money can buy?

    There’s cheap pizza, and there’s good pizza. I’ve never found a combination of both in any city.
