I’m looking for real Chicago deep-dish. I know, I know, sacrilege, but I’m craving it. Any suggestions?
Unfortunately Uno’s is the only bet. (you can ask them to bake the pizza longer than usual because otherwise, it’s totally not baked enough). The next best thing is to go to Chicago, buy a frozen one to-go from Gino’s East (they sell them in the store) and bring it back, and keep it in your freezer till you have that craving. That’s what I do.
Or befriend someone that does this! Ha.
This post is not sacrilege…though I’m sure many will disagree, in my opinion Chicago pizza is way better than NYC pizza and next to impossible to find here in Manhattan…
as the others have mentioned, there’s no chance of getting anything even remotely close to the real deal in ny. like philly cheesesteaks, you can only get a truly great, authentic version of this food in the originating city. it’s really unfortunate for those of us who get specific cravings…
it doesn’t exist in NYC. i’m with sedela on freezer pizzas. and you don’t need to go to chicago to get it. both giordano’s and eduardo’s offer par-baked frozen deep-dish pizzas that they will fed ex in freezer containers the homesick among us. i think ranalli’s might also, but IMO their pizza pales in comparison … i order a par-baked deep-dish giordano’s spinach at least once a year.
