Want to take one last road trip before the end of summer? The theme of this trip is, “pizza.” TripAdvisor just released a list of the Top 10 best cities for pizza in the U. S. of A. and it looks like we’ve got to make our way to Chicago. Who’s coming?

Chicago’s top spot on the pizza chart comes from two things: how many customers review pizza locations in the city, and if their reviews are positive or not. Basically, it boils down to the fact that Chicago has the most pizza palaces with the most positive reviews, so they get to reign supreme and hold the honor of the city with the Best Pizza. Also, deep dish pizza.

“Travelers come from all corners of the country to sink their teeth into Chicago’s deep dish, the big cheese of pizza destinations according to reviewers on TripAdvisor,” Brooke Ferencsik, director of communications for TripAdvisor, said pizza statement. We’re hungry just thinking about about grabbing one of those sliches.

Along with releasing a list of the best cities for Pizza, TripAdvisor also released a list of the best pizza places across the country. In a surprise twist, not one of the top ten pizza places are located in Chicago. That top spot goes to New York City, which is home to Juliana’s Pizza. Rounding out the other top three are Pizza Time of St. Augustine, in Saint Augustine, Florida, and Moose’s Tooth Pub and Pizzeria, in Anchorage, Alaska. Which means that our road trip just got a little bit longer. Chicago to Alaska? We’re up for that challenge.

You can check out the full list of pizza places here (complete with reasons why their pizza is the best). Then get back to packing for our pizza road trip across the country.
