Obama Loves St. Louis Pizza More Than Chicago?

"It's the best pizza I've ever eaten." That's what President Obama said during one of his campaigns in St. Louis. What was he thinking?

Chicago takes a certain amount of pride in its pizza, and though "best of" lists should be taken with a grain of salt, we're used to seeing ourselves among top 'za competition.

Frankly, that's where we should be -- right?

Apparently the reviewers of TripAdvisor don't agree.

The travel site on Wednesday announced the top 10 pizza cities in the country, according to travelers who use the site, and Chicago wasn't on the list.

The city's stuffed pizza was beaten by San Diego, deemed No. 1 for its "authentic tastes of Italy just miles from the Mexican border."

One traveler commented San Diego's pizza is "as good as being home in New York.”

Unfortunately, though, New York came in No. 4, after Las Vegas and Boston.

The other towns that beat out Chicago? Seattle, Austin, San Francisco, Indianapolis, Philadelphia and Phoenix.

According to TripAdvisor, Phoenix dwellers can enjoy "scrumptious slices of airy, bubbling crust and savory cheese, paired with the perfect amount of fresh tomato sauce."

Perhaps the reviewer is in need of a trip to Chicago.

Full list:

1. San Diego, California
2. Las Vegas, Nevada
3. Boston, Massachusetts
4. New York City, New York
5. Seattle, Washington
6. Austin, Texas
7. San Francisco, California
8. Indianapolis, Indiana
9. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
10. Phoenix, Arizona
