Though the Los Angeles Times claims the Obamas have shown a “deliberate and careful” approach to dining out in Washington, D.C., the first family has one glaring hometown preference: pizza. Michelle has been known to flirt with New York-style, but the President has largely outsourced all pizza making to folks from the Midwest. Italian Fiesta Pizzeria from his Chicago neighborhood of Hyde Park helped cater an event shortly before his inauguration, while Pi Pizzeria in St. Louis — which some claim is his actual favorite pizza — has also been flown out for a pizza party.
