Deep-dish Pizza is Chicago in an oven baking

There are few things more iconic in Chicago than a deep-dish pizza. Chicago sets itself apart with its version of pizza by layering a flaky crust with heaps of cheese, sauce, and toppings. This hearty treat can be found throughout the city, but there are a few places that stand above the rest. For a bite of the best deep-dish pizza in Chicago, here are some places to visit:

Lou Malnati’s 

With over fifty locations in the Greater Chicago area, Lou Malnati’s makes it easy to enjoy its deep-dish offerings.

Pequod’s Pizza

Located in Lincoln Park, Pequod’s Pizza has made a name for itself by standing out in the deep-dish pizza crowd.
