Pizza may be from Italy in origin however we must admit that it owes a big thank you to America for some of the most delicious variations of this world wide famous food. In addition, not only America but also the whole world must salute Chicago for a very special type of pizza that is unique to this city; that is the Deep Dish.
Deep Dish is a sort of pizza that differs from the common pizzas in its thickness. As its name suggests, the pizza is “deep”. In order to achieve that the dough of the pizza is used as a plate to hold the huge amount of cheese stuffed in. The tomato sauce is placed on the top and it is sometimes accompanied by other ingredients.
There are places in Chicago which have gained fame by serving Deep Dish. However the most famous of them is probably the Giardano’s. There are a couple of branches of Giardano’s in Chicago and all of them serve delicious Deep Dish. However, the one in the Magnificent Mile is going to capture you with its design, too. Be prepared to wait in a long queue in order to be seated since the place is usually full.
