Pizza in Chicago is not like any other in the country. Trust me, and I don’t mean to put down the pizza from New York, California, Ohio or wherever. I’ve tried them all, but Chicago style pizza is head and shoulders above all the rest. I know that every big city claims to have the best, and I’m sure there are some good pizzas all over the United States. As everyone knows, the Chicago style pizza is the deep dish “Sicilian” style thick, full of ingredients and a crunchy tasty crust. It’s actually cooked in a deep pan, not on a flimsy cookie sheet (sorry New York). New Yorkers like to claim that their pieces are so big, you have to fold them over to eat them. Big deal. Anybody can take paper thin cardboard crust and sprinkle some cheese on it and here’s the big twist, fold it over! Wow. Not for me. Chicago pizza is eaten like a pie, with a fork like you’re supposed to. There are several top notch Pizza establishments in Chicago. Geno’s, Giordano’s, Lou Malnati’s, Uno’s and Pizzeria Due to name just a few. If you ever get a chance to visit Chicago, please eat at one of the Chicago style pizza places and you’ll discover like millions of Midwesterners did decades ago that the Chicagoans know what they are doing in the kitchen. Then go back to your Avacado, Basil and Feta cheese experiments in California or the cardboard “it takes two hands and fold over to let the grease run off style” in New York. Like I said before, trust me on this one.
