Pie in the face: New York City just 4th in ranking of pizza cities

The world's largest travel site, TripAdvisor, has released the top 10 cities for pizza in the United States, based on reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travelers.

And almost shockingly, New York City checks in at No. 4. That's behind San Diego, Las Vegas and Boston. Chicago, known for its deep dish pies, didn't even make the list.

"TripAdvisor travelers reveal that some of America's best pizza is being tossed on the West Coast, which flies in the face of the common perception that pizza is only a Northeast or Midwest specialty," said Brooke Ferencsik, director of communications at TripAdvisor. "Better known for burritos and beaches than marinara and mozzarella, travelers now have yet another reason to visit sunny San Diego."

After New York City, Seattle checks in fifth, followed by Austin, San Francisco, Indianapolis and Philadelphia. Phoenix rounds out the top 10.
