1. Deep Dish Pizza

Well, we might as well start with the most obvious. The Deep Dish pizza was reportedly made famous by Pizzeria Uno in Chicago in 1943 though there seems to be some debate as to who was actually responsibly for this crusty creation. If you’ve never had one, the deep dish is a pizza cooked in a deep pan with crust sides that can get up to 3 inches high and is filled with tomato sauce, cheese and layers of toppings. The term pizza pie really comes to mind while eating one of these. Some popular places to try out this much hyped favorite are Gino’s East or Pequod’s.
