Chicago Pizza

  1. I lived in Chicago for 10 years. I have also live in multiple east coasts places, Cali, and Colorado. Nothing could ever come close to a true deep dish. Why? Its bread, sauce and cheese, There was a place in san diego(wtf) that was very close, but the restaurant which I cant remember was run by some old chicago people. The only thing I can think of is people in chicago realize its going to take 45-60 min to make a pizza, outside of chicago no one is willing to wait that long nor is a restaurant willing to have customers idle that long.

    That's funny, the best place I've had it outside of Chicago is also San Diego, maybe a lot of Chicagoans moved there to escape the winters?
  3. 1) Blame "that" on smartphones and rising property taxes. :( :mad:
    2) You could order a frozen one if you live out of the area. :)
  4. deep dish pizza isnt really pizza, its more like a bad lasagna.

    ill take east coast pizza made on a flat pan thank you.

    Been to Chicago, and had "Chicago" pizza, and just didn't work for me. I, by an infinite amount, prefer pizza as opposed to the supposed "chicago" pizza.
    Everyone has a taste and opinion, so not looking to denigrate your likes, just saying, for me more a marketing and local market appeal, than good pizza.

  8. I bought one of those a frozen pizza the other day and it said on the box, "Cook for between 20 and 22 minutes."

    Now, I'm not a genius, but isn't that 21 minutes? Ya think there was an ap for that.....:cool:
  9. It sounds like you're describing either Chicago-style or Sicilian-style "stuffed" pizza where the sauce is on top of the cheese and toppings and the Sicilian has an additional dough layer underneath. To each is own. :cool:

    I knew there had to be something good about Chicago.
    I'd go there and try it, if I thought I could get in and out without being mugged and/or shot.
