MINNEAPOLIS -- One Minneapolis pizza joint has been crowned the best in the United States.

Wrecktangle Pizza went against four other cities with its "Very Nice Breakfast Pizza," winning Good Morning America's "United States of Pizza" contest earlier this week.

The award-winning pizza features cheddar jack cheese, sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon jam, and fried sage leaves.

Wrecktangle beat out the competition -- Unregular Pizza from New York City, Phew's Pies from Atlanta, Milly's Pizza in the Pan from Chicago, and Pizza Jawn from Philadelphia -- to take home a $10,000 prize and a golden pizza cuter.

Wrecktangle has three locations in the metro serving up Detroit-style pizza.

Red Wagon Pizza Co. out of South Minneapolis also took part in the competition but was eliminated before the final round.
