Chicago Deep-Dish PizzaCHICAGO - There are several reasons deep dish pizza is the best in Chicago, but I will focus on three: quality, crust, and price.  If you want to go to a good Chicago pizzeria, you should try Pequod's and Giordano's. I recommend Lou Malnati's, Gino's East, and Gino's West.

Pizano's Pizza & Pasta

In Chicago, deep-dish pizza has been a staple for decades. While some Chicago pizzerias have a flaky and chewy crust, others are stuffed with lots of sauce and toppings. Whatever the style, Chicago's Pizano's offers a wide selection of deep dish pies. The Chicago special is a deep dish pizza with fennel sausage, mushrooms, green bell peppers, and onions. If you're looking for a more traditional pizza, try the spinach pie or a chicken pesto pizza. 61 E Madison St, Chicago, IL 60603

The Chicago-based pizza chain made its first expansion to Las Vegas in late 2016; Giordano's is set to make its deep-dish pizza famous all over the country. Multiple Locations
