Would you like a slice of pizza with your beer? If you live in Cincinnati, your chances of landing the perfect pairing are a good bet.

According to a recent study by Infogroup Targeting Solutions, cities with the most pizza restaurants per capita also tend to have the greatest number of bars. Pittsburgh topped the list of U.S. bar cities with 12 bars per 10,000 residents. Overall, seven cities are ranked in the top 10 for both bars and pizza.

Cincinnati came in third with 11.5 bars for every 10,000 people. We tied with Cleveland.

When it comes to pizza places, we came in third again with 6.7 restaurants per 10,000 people. A tie with Cleveland again.

Top 10 U.S. bar cities:

1. Pittsburgh (11.8 per 10,000 people)

2. St. Louis (11.6)

3. Cleveland (11.5)

4. Cincinnati (11.5)

5. Milwaukee (9.5)

6. Orlando (9.4)

7. Las Vegas (9.1)

8. Portland, Ore. (8.5)

9. Omaha (7.6)

10. Buffalo (7.1)

Top cities for pizza restaurants:

1. Orlando (10.3 per 10,000 people)

2. Pittsburgh (9.9)

3. Cincinnati (6.7)

4. Cleveland (6.7)

5. Buffalo (6.5)

6. St. Louis (6.3)

7. Las Vegas (6.3)

8. Tampa, Fla. (6.3)

9. Miami (6)

10. Minneapolis (4.8)

What's interesting is the cities famous for pizza, such as New York and Chicago, didn't even make the top five. Instead it's Orlando, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Buffalo.

Some other findings: Orlando has the greatest number of restaurants per 10,000 residents, the greatest concentration of seafood restaurants and the top number of burger spots per 10,000 people. The top barbecue cities tended to be concentrated in the south (no surprise).

Moral of the story: Pizza and beer.
