One would think MSC and Costa would or should have among the best but I hven't sailed on either.

As for Princess, perhaps in the past. Sailed on the Island P in 2012 and it was superb. My wife and I got talking to the pizza maker who was an older Italian man, a pizza maker by trade and training who was personally recruited by the hotel manager (IIRC both from the port city of Bari). He really took pride in his craft.

Fast forward to 2016. Sailed on the Star P and looked forward to pizza. It was merely o.k. Not as much finesse, actually not by a far stretch, as good as the pizza on the Island P 4 year earlier. The pizza makers were Filipino and just weren't trained enough or well. We ate pizza at least 2x daily on the Island P. Just had it once on the Star P and never again.

Best pizza by far is at Alfredo's Pizzeria in the atrium in about 5 of Princess ships. This is pizza made to order which is why it is so good. Every ship except the Pacific Princess has the Prego Pizzeria in the Lido deck. It is very good, just not as good as Alfredo's because it is already made, sitting on the warmer like the other cruiselines. Also, Princess modified their lido deck pizzerias 5 years ago where, to me, it was not as good as before, but still better than the other lines though very close to the quality of Carnival which has a thicker crust which I would put in 2nd place. Now, Costa may have a more authentic pizza, but you have to pay for it. Yes, you have to pay for pizza on this Italian cruiseline. Oceania probably has the best food on the high seas with the exception of their pizza as the pizza oven in that ship is the same oven they install for Renaissance Cruise Line when the ship was built back in 2001 - this may imply that the pizza on the Pacific Princess may be of similiar quality. Worst pizza is RCCL, equivalent to lousy frozen pizza, but I haven't sailed with them for over 6 years so they could improve in the intervening years.
