Since we decided to move to the Chicagoland area, Dave has been most excited about getting to eat deep dish pizza whenever he wants. Before moving up here, Dave's favorite was Giordano's. To him, there was no other. Now that we have lived here for a little over 6 months, we are finding more and more pizza places.
I think that everyone has their own opinion about which place has the best Chicago style deep dish pizza. We are determined to find our favorite!
I have to admit that we only ate Giordano's for the first 5 months we lived here, and in the past month or so we have tried a couple of others. Branching out has made us realize there are so many great pizza places in the area.
While going on a drive a few weeks ago we came across the original Lou Malnati's. We had to stop.
Lou started this pizzeria in 1971 after working in one of the original deep dish pizzerias since the 1940s and it's known as one of the best. We'd have to agree! The crust of this pizza is amazing. A family recipe passed down from generation to generation is known as "butter crust" and its very tasty! I like their lighter sauce and Dave enjoys their special sausage blend.
The only downside about finding the best, is that everyone brings other pizza places to our attention. I guess we will just have to try them all! But for now, Lou's is at the top of our list.
