Chicago has once again topped Travel + Leisure's list for America's top pizza. The reason? You can find good New York style pizza anywhere, but you can't find decent Chicago-style pizza outside of Chicago.

The annual poll has readers ranking 35 cities on a variety of factors, like pizza and good looking locals (we're 16th).

Chicago Pizza Tours founder Jonathan Porter tells the lifestyle magazine that those who advertise Chicago-style pizza outside of the city are usually just a hot mess. And not in a good way.

"It's usually a real letdown," Porter said here. "Pizza is best kept simple. When you add tons of ingredients and cheese, you tend to ruin it."
