It seems fitting that my first Chicago food post is about deep dish pizza. It’s a topic that seems to divide people, and by people, I mean arrogant New Yorkers who seem offended that a massive deep dish could be deemed “pizza.” I think the debate is silly, and when it comes down to it, I’m on the side of deliciousness. And by that, I mean, I don’t care whether it’s pizza or not – deep dish pizza is tasty and that’s all that matters (take that, NYC).
I’m sure I’ll sample other deep dish treats this summer, but I started at Giordano’s. There are locations all around town, so I was afraid it would feel a bit too “chain restaurant-y,” but I enjoyed it. Our waitress was kind of sullen, but the food itself was delicious. I loved my side caesar salad but – let’s be honest – that’s not why I’m writing this post. The pizza was what we came for, and it did not disappoint. We got a pizza with sausage, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers and it was cheesy deep dish goodness. A good start to my summer, I think.
