With the heat index reaching well above 100 degrees Tuesday, one award-winning Minneapolis pizzeria elected to close rather than have team members work in an unbearably hot kitchen.

Wrecktangle Pizza, which was named “Best Pizza in America” by Good Morning America in February, closed its Lyn-Lake location in Uptown Minneapolis Tuesday. The closure was announced on social media channels and reported on by KARE 11, a CBS News affiliate based in the Twin Cities.

“LynLake (sic) location closed Tuesday, August 22,” the social post read. “It’s too hot in the kitchen. Our staff needs to stay cool, ya know???”

The closure was generally praised by social media users. One Instagram commenter simply said, “Valid.”

The pizzeria had not yet updated its social channels saying whether or not the restaurant would be open today, as temperatures remained sky-high.

Wrecktangle Pizza has three traditional locations in the Twin Cities area, with another set to open soon. The Minnesota eatery specializes in Detroit-style pies. It was named “Best Pizza in America” by Good Morning America by virtue of winning the news program’s “United States of Pizza” contest. The contest only focused on contestants from five cities: New York, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Minneapolis.
