Chicago’s Age Old Question

photo (1)

This past week I visited Chicago for the LA Dodgers/Cubs baseball game. As soon as I landed I stopped almost every Chicago native in my path to ask the age old question:

Who has the best deep dish pizza?

Almost no one agreed that it was UNO’s. After various opinions I somehow wound up at Peaquod’s which I may add was pretty good, but I am looking for the best. This year, before the weather gets unbearable in Chicago I plan on going on a quest to find the best deep dish pizza Chicago has to offer!

How you may ask?
1. I will compile a list of restaurants that specialize in deep dish pizza
2. Visit them
3. Order their best recommendation
4. Then single-handedly choose the best deep dish pizza in Chicago (Or at least choose the top three)

Quest coming soon!!!!

Here is the list so far: (Feel free to add to it as you please)

    Chicago is known for its deep dish, but interestingly enough, not too many Chicagoans eat it on the regular. Pequod’s is legit though…especially the burnt cheese crust. Been wanting to try Burt’s! Wish it wasn’t a bit of a hike from the city
