Hooray, Chicago! Travel + Leisure magazine gives Chicago props as the No. 1 city in America for Pizza.
Is the classic deep dish the reason that Chicago topped the pizza category again this year? Perhaps, but the city deserves props for embracing a diversity of styles. At the local chain Pizano’s, you can get an authentic deep dish as well as a “tavern-style” thin crust, cut into strips or squares. The Neapolitan-style, brick-oven pies at Lincoln Park’s Pizzeria da Nella are a favorite of Heather Sperling, a Chicago-based editor at tastingtable.com. She also vouches for Coalfire in West Town (“my go-to for a meaty pie”) and Burt’s Place in the suburb of Morton Grove. “It’s legendary for its buttery, caramelized crust.”
Rounding out the top five are Providence, RI (2), New York City (3), Philadelphia (4) and Boston (5). See the entire list here.
