I like deep dish pizza, but there really ain't many of those not too, too far around here. Uno's is one of the few - and, of course, that's a chain. But still - MysterD certainly likes it. Hadn't had Uno's in quite a long time - and recently had it; and totally dug it.
What do people who have had deep dish pizza like for that style - from both chains and non-chains?
Having grown up in Chicago, I'm not aware of any deep dish pizza that is *not* a chain. Unless you count Pizzaria Due since it has it's own name,but in reality it's just the second location of Pizzaria Uno.
In order my my personal preference of true "Deep Dish", I'd go Giordano's, Lou Malnatti's, Uno's, Gino's East. Though the pizza I've probably eaten the most in my life (particularly as a kid) is Connie's Pizza, explicitly their "Pan" pizza. It's a thick crust, but not really deep dish (they have a deep as well, but I dont like it that much).
But here's a dirty secret no one talks about - Chicagoans eat more thin crust pizza than deep dish! Thing it, Chicago thin crust pizza is not the big foldable NY-type slices but rather is almost crispy like a cracker and is cut into hand sized near rectangles. Home Run Inn, Reggio's and Italian Fiesta specialize in these. Also, I like Giordano's thin crust only a little less than the deep dish - crispy on the edges/outside soft and buttery on the inside. Yum!
